To create a best-in-class and secure WordPress intranet for Arcus, we started with creating a beautifully functioning interface paired with a forward-looking tech stack. Our intranet services included using WPO365 for Microsoft account login integration with data sync via Microsoft Azure and utilized the BuddyPress plugin for social media-like features including extended user profiles, @mentions, activity notifications, and the ability to comment/like/share. We used WordPress native functionality to create a full intranet experience, including the ability to upload photos, create posts, create and add events to a calendar (using The Events Calendar service), and upload/search for files; all enabled for users on the front end using the WP User Frontend plugin.
We’ve integrated the Organimi org chart service which allows users to see and interact with an org chart, synced with the client’s Microsoft Azure Active Directory to provide an always up-to-date experience. Users can read external resources like Tweets and press releases via various API integrations. The site is fully editable via the WordPress dashboard thanks to the Advanced Custom Fields plugin and native WordPress features.
