Get you a platform that can do both?

I’m a big fan of the guys at Intranetizen and read their blogs with glee. Not only are they wonderful, but they obviously appreciate my mixed metaphors and meme-based references…

New Year, same intranet? Pledge to make improvements to your site...

Are you looking at how to get more out of your social intranet? How do you encourage contributions to your online community?

One way we're doing this here at Invotra is by using our new Message Wall feature to submit our own pledges to improve the way we communicate. 

This is one of the many features we have as part of Invotra's social intranet product that was born out of a request from one of our customers and is fast-becoming one of *our* favourites!

The wrong trousers? Dressing for success at awards...

Dress smart. Defined as what? Wearing a suit? A shirt? or just looking nice in a polo jumper and jeans? This one question I found very difficult to answer when I was lucky enough to be on the receiving end of an invitation to the National Apprenticeships awards.

Having never been to a corporate event before I had no expectations or experience on what such an event would entail!

Our experience at Code for America


The suitcases are unpacked, our LinkedIn is spinning and it already feels like an age ago, however we recently returned from our first Code for America Summit in Oakland, California.

Code for America is a movement which brings together 'Government innovators, civic-minded technologists, and entrepreneurs', and we're thrilled to align ourselves with the community.

The summit was packed with innovative visionaries who truly believe in using technology in the right way, to enable the Government to better serve our society.

Meetups, and the power of the network

As you may know, I’m a big fan of social networks.

Online, in a professional and personal sense (although for me the lines are continuing to blur), from an Enterprise Social Network perspective, and offline - whether it’s a meetup, tweetup or conference!

A fortnight in Fort Knox… How secure is your digital workplace?

I recently joined the team at Invotra and the one thing that has stuck out to me (other than how scarily happy everyone is), is how seriously security is taken within the business. It isn’t just another box to tick in the employee handbook but rather, it is at the very core of the company culture.

Government ICT actually working


In 2011, Lord Francis Maude, then Minister for the Cabinet Office and Paymaster General, openly and frequently challenged the status quo regarding UK Government ICT spend.

Invotra gear up for Code for America


Final preparations are underway, on both sides of the Atlantic, for Invotra’s first trip to San Francisco to sponsor 2016’s Code for America summit.

Of all the US conferences and events, no other public sector audience is as advanced in understanding the importance of digital evolution, user-centered design and the necessity for an improved use of digital across Government. Invotra are thrilled to align with the most advanced conversations in the United States around the crucial role of digital in this space.
