Intranet-in-a-box built on SharePoint is a new trend
SharePoint is probably the most popular intranet platform in the world, but the great paradox is that there is actually no such thing as an “intranet” in SharePoint. Instead, SharePoint offers huge amount of building blocks from which the intranet can be built. And if some features are missing, you can always customize SharePoint to fulfill your needs.
With an intranet-in-a-box solution, like Valo Intranet, you get all those missing intranet features, usability improvements, and best practices immediately to your end users. Valo Intranet is based on SharePoint, but it doesn’t look like SharePoint at all. It has a beautiful user experience and the look & feel is fitted to your branding guidelines.
Technically strong – the last intranet you’ll need
Forget about building a new intranet to replace the old one every now and then. Valo Intranet is a flexible solution for the ever-changing world.
Built for Office 365 and SharePoint
With Valo Intranet you can leave behind the heavy migration projects and moving content from a one outdated SharePoint version to another. Valo is 100% Office 365 compatible and supports on-premises SharePoint 2013 and 2016 servers. With Valo Fresh subscription you keep your intranet evolving and always up to date. Peace of mind as a service.
You can’t break it
You can use Valo without the common fear of things getting “broken” with an every new cloud update. Valo is based on Microsoft’s latest SharePoint add-in model recommendations which means all the code is running outside SharePoint. We do not use any custom master pages or SharePoint specific declarative XML. Instead we are using client-side and remote provisioning techniques. Therefore your intranet will be ready to take on all future Office 365 updates!
Ready-made but still your own intranet
Valo Intranet is a ready-to-go solution, so you don’t have to start from the scratch. You can also see it as a starting package for your intranet and workspaces.
Make it your own
After deployment you are free to develop your particular solution in any direction you want – also with other partners – using SharePoint features or customized solutions.
Flexible and fast deployment
The deployment process is flexible: you can create your own schedule and choose the right tools and modules for your employees.

No one wants to use an intranet that looks like a SharePoint. Your intranet should look like your company. So it will be branded. Period.
3. Information Architecture
The most important decision you have to make when building a new intranet is how the information is delivered to your employees in a way they want to consume it. Our local partner will help you in defining the navigation structure, page layouts, metadata model, news categories, social channels and all other bells and whistles.
4. Content migration from the old intranet
Of course you have an old intranet with (old) content. Some of it is still useful, so our partners will help you in migrating (the necessary) content to the new intranet.
5. Customizations and integrations
Everything you need isn’t included? Valo Intranet extension model makes it possible to extend Valo to fulfil your needs.
