Having moved passed an almost irresistible urge to break into metaphor/song regarding Kathmandu climbing their ‘information management’ mountain, we’re feeling quite chuffed with our self control.
The outdoor clothing and equipment retailer – and iD client since 2008 – has tested us at every turn. Puns, similes and other ill-considered jokes such as ‘weathering the storm’, ‘withstanding the elements’ and ‘paddling their own canoe’ have proved equally difficult to ignore, but we have arrived safely at the end of their case study without being too cheesy.
With 90 stores and counting throughout Australia and New Zealand, Kathmandu is one of the largest and most recognizable retail chains of its kind. Plans to expand operations meant they needed a way to better communicate with stores. With new outlets opening every few months, Kathmandu was on the lookout for new and improved ways to properly support their retail network, including streamlining the management of internal processes and reporting – integral elements of any successful retail business.
The retail giant selected Intranet DASHBOARD (iD) with the aim of enhancing operational efficiency and getting the business fit for battle on the global stage in the years to come. Read the full case study, and get all the gory details of exactly how they did it.

In 2003, it became apparent that a consolidated intranet presence was the obvious way to create the necessary synergies between staff around the world. They chose iD to power their intranet, and haven’t looked back since.

iD was evaluated against a number of other solutions in the market and was chosen for its ease-of-use, cost-effectiveness and because it offered iSOFT a large number of useful applications straight out of the box.
CIO Martin Wilkinson said the need for a new group-wide intranet was recognized at all levels and across all operational areas of the company because of the need to build a strong sense of unity and corporate culture among iSOFT employees. Read more »

At oil giant Royal Dutch Shell PLC, the main issue faced by intranet manager Andrew Fix was not that information was missing, but that there was simply too much of it.
