Interact Intranet connects the global work force at Kantar Health

March 22, 2012 Interact announces the selection of Interact Intranet by Kantar Health – a global, evidence-based decision support partner to the world’s leading pharmaceutical, biotech, device and diagnostic companies.

With 23 offices globally and four merged companies, Kantar Health had a real need for branding themselves as one and Interact Intranet has been an enabler for global branding. After the merger, the company had a few different intranet solutions that had no content organization or search facility, creating a barrier to internal communications. Since selecting Interact Intranet the Kantar Health intranet is now a central point of communication for its global work force. Collaboration has been boosted as news and articles are easily posted on their intranet from employees in different countries around the world. With Interact Intranet the HR department has saved an average of 1,300 hours per year since implementation as HR queries are now seamlessly answered by the intelligent intranet knowledge base on Interact Intranet.
Kantar Health’s CIO Mary Sobiechowski said:

A ‘proof of concept’ demonstration shown to myself and the Kantar intranet manager, showed us exactly how Interact Intranet would work in Kantar Health and the decision was made – based on the balance of capability, Active Directory integration and cost.
“Kantar Health is a forward thinking and intelligent organization and it is important that we utilize technology that echoes how we work as an organisation –which Interact Intranet definitely does.”

VP Business Development at Interact, Scott Hitchins said:

With offices throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Africa, Kantar Health wanted a solution which would rise to the challenge of uniting its globally scattered experts.
Interact Intranet has been the enabler for this – allowing their staff to quickly locate colleagues using a variety of search criteria including skills and expertise and it has successfully branded and united a company going through a large merger process.”
