At the time of crisis, it is important that people get notified quickly and are up-to-date about the situation all the time – thus we are introducing a crisis communications ready-built template for your Intranet. If you are a Valo Customer, we now bring you a ready-built site template to ease the task and bring some additional #ValoLove on top of it!
Many companies are facing a new situation – how to cope with remote work and handle information flow when everything needs to suddenly be communicated digitally. Also, in a crisis situation we are now facing, the information flow is huge especially when we want to combine different information sources together.
When the relevant content is shared from one place but from several channels, the time saved for combining the information is multiplied. By selecting the right communication channels to gather all that information together, the user will find the needed information what they are seeking for effortlessly and fast.
Therefore for all Valo Customers, we now offer a Crisis Communications site template to your Valo Intranet where you can find all the relevant information regarding the crisis.
Empower your remote workforce
Two-way communication solutions are now needed when people are forced for social distance.
For example, Microsoft Teams usage has exploded within a week, now hitting already 44 million active users and no wonder. Microsoft Teams enables chatting with your colleagues, quick video calls or bigger meetings and creating off-topic rooms and other “virtual coffee machines” we all are missing at times we need to work remotely. No matter what tool in use, they enable transparent communication throughout the organization.
But to build effective crisis communications, especially in bigger organizations, having something more static is also needed.

Crisis Communications Site template is a pre-build site template inside Valo Intranet, which runs on top of SharePoint and Office 365. Taking it in use is straight-forward.
