Marbank's intranet system began life as a way to ease the management of subcontract costs on their building sites, decreasing the time dedicated to this task by automating steps, whilst also improving accountability.

Over the years, the system has grown to include features such as a tendering suite, where invitations to tender for new projects can be speedily e-mailed to subcontractors, including access to drawings and an easy work flow for staff to manage the process every step of the way.

We recently completed the first full face lift of this Intranet since it's launch in 2007, which has significantly sped up the workflow by taking advantage of new technologies and also saw the introduction of a full e-mail archive, with automated indexing of e-mails to contracts and tenders to enhance accountability and the accessibility of information.
