The College of Nurses of Ontario is responsible for serving a widely varied collective of nurses across the entire province, but that’s not their only audience: they also need to collect, maintain, and broadcast the information needs of everyone who works at College of Nurses of Ontario. In other words, they didn’t just need a website. They needed an intranet, too.
Rather than shove their needs into an existing intranet software solution, Blend helped CNO leverage their existing Episerver familiarity into a new custom-built intranet. Beyond just storing documents and listing a directory, we also helped them integrate their Microsoft Exchange servers, develop personalization features, and create an overall feel of community for those working both in the office and beyond.
The solution was another in a long line of successful projects within the CNO/Blend partnership.
- Integration of existing calendar systems for system-wide reservation and status functionality.
- Development on a familiar system to help minimize editorial overhead.
- A central hub for company communications, including personalized, department- and individual-focused links and frequently-accessed pages.
A Long-Time Partnership Across an International Border
A partnership nearly a decade in the making, Blend and CNO have worked closely to provide web solutions both inside and outside.
