The Portal - DNN Intranet

Merlin Housing Society is the largest provider of social housing across the South Gloucestershire region. They manage around 8,000 homes and employ over 200 staff.

After having already used DNN for their website, Merlin Housing Society wanted to update their existing company Intranet (The Portal) by developing it in a DNN CMS. The Intranet was re-branded to differentiate it from the public DNN website, new logos and DNN skins were created and then applied to the CMS.

Again, it was a priority that the CMS be capable of holding a huge amount of content for Merlin Housing Society's staff members. Using DNN meant that a wide range of functionality was used within ‘The Portal’, including latest news, upcoming events, discussion forums, photo galleries, video galleries and job listings. All these modules were customised and styled to fit in with the design of the site, enabling registered users to upload content.

Social networking was also implemented into the Merlin Housing Society Intranet/Extranet using the module Active Social (this product has since been replaced by Evoq Social). The ability to network socially online means that Merlin Housing Society staff can chat, message and email other registered users via the Intranet.

All company documents have been archived within the Intranet/Extranet and an advanced search was added to help users locate the right information quickly and easily. Pure Systems also developed a custom DNN module for Merlin Housing Society, which enabled staff members to search for digitised maps of Merlin properties using street names. This has been a success as it has enabled all the data to be easily accessible and held in a central location.
