In the heart of Indiana, a beacon healthcare organization dedicates itself to serving communities, plays a crucial role in improving health outcomes, and enriches the lives of countless individuals and families throughout the state. It operates over 200 care sites and employs a network of dedicated physicians, hospitals, and specialized facilities, delivering a comprehensive continuum of healthcare services to the Community.

The scattered communication channels and disparate tools significantly pose setbacks in effectively disseminating information and providing employees with a unified platform for accessing resources and services. This fragmentation inhibits productivity and hampers the overall employee experience, necessitating a comprehensive solution to consolidate communications and streamline operations. 

Revolutionizing Employee Experience 

Partnering with INRY, the organization endeavors to overhaul its internal communication and service delivery systems. Leveraging INRY's expertise, the customer seeks to establish the ServiceNow Employee Center Pro (EC Pro) that addresses existing bottlenecks and fosters future growth. INRY's proficiency in crafting user-friendly interfaces aligns with the customer’s goal of providing self-service capabilities, mobile access, and timely organization updates. The aim is to centralize internal communications and service requests, ensuring a smooth transition to ServiceNow. The healthcare organization anticipates enhancing employee engagement through this collaboration while laying the groundwork for continued innovation and excellence.

Transitioning to a Modern Intranet Platform  

The implementation journey begins with collaborative workshops defining requirements and objectives before deploying several key ServiceNow modules, enhancing Employee Center Pro. The solution includes: 

  • EC Pro Setup: Configuration of user roles, access controls, and permissions for EC Pro, ensuring compatibility and seamless transition from the legacy Intranet. This process also includes updating workflows and automation rules and configuring page route maps for improved navigation. 
  • Page Layouts and Wireframing: EC Pro UI design follows approved mockups and configures navigation, page layouts, and branding elements. It also encompasses building intranet wireframes, URL updates, quick links, configuring taxonomy, emergency banners, and content widgets for the intranet. 
  • Content Pages: Involves implementing employee communities application, community profiles, user registration for category subscriptions, portal widgets for news bulletin carousel, other news and social sharing widgets, video embedding, featured news functionality, content uploading, digest email, and SuccessFactors integration. 
  • Self-Service and AI Search: Implement taxonomy migration for self-service catalog items, consolidate request types, modify email layout, configure tasks with approvals, update portal URL, and configure page redirects. Additionally, enhance knowledge discovery and access across the platform by configuring AI-powered search.  
  • SharePoint Integration and Document Management: Transfer knowledge articles from the customer’s SharePoint to ServiceNow and set up the employee knowledge base, including ownership groups and templates. 

By leveraging these implementation services, the organization aims to realize its vision of a modernized and intuitive Intranet that serves as a unified portal for all employee needs, driving efficiency, collaboration, and employee satisfaction.
