How to Distribute a Company Intranet to Employees

What is a Company Intranet?

An intranet is a private network used to boost and simplify internal communications within an organization. It acts as an internal website that helps employees collaborate and get stuff done. It’s basically an internal database which employees can access while connected to the corporate network, with different permissions for various staff.

To access the intranet, employees need to be connected to the company private network and know which URL to put into their browser. 50 employees equals 50 different people contacting you for the intranet URL. Typically an organization’s administration department will provide this URL to employees via email. In a perfect world the employees bookmark this URL and that will be the end of it. However many employees do not save bookmarks resulting in excess communication and wasted time. That’s where IT staff get called to action to provide a better solution. One such solution is to deploy a website shortcut to all users desktops using group policies. However this requires a lot of scripting and testing to accomplish.

That’s where Parallels Remote Application Server v15 comes in. We’ve simplified this process drastically by providing administrators with an easy to use wizard to publish Web Pages to all employees. The guide below illustrates the steps required to publish an intranet to users with Parallels Remote Application Server.
