Intra.NET Awards Boston 2019

The Intra.NET Boston Awards took place for the 3rd time on April 4th, 2019 as part of the Intra.NET Boston Reloaded 2019. The event is North America’s most innovative conference on intranets, digital workplaces and internal communications and the leading knowledge exchange platform that brings together annually over 200 stakeholders who play an active role in the internal communications and digital workplace scene.

On the first evening of the conference, the digital workplace experts took part in the Intra.NET Award 2019 ceremony and voted for the leading intranet projects in the industry. Five projects were nominated prior to the conference by the Intra.NET jury after we.CONECT received a wealth of exciting and complex applications.

Ross Canavaugh, Internal Collaboration Leader at Wells Fargo, Neesham Spitzberg, Senior Program Manager at International Finance Corporation, Barbara Bitondo, Designer, Knowledge Solutions, International Finance Corporation and Amy Hernandez, Global Content Lead at The Coca-Cola Company formed the independent expert jury, who reviewed all applications and based on their experience, knowledge and expertise in the digital workplace field, selected the nominees and the winner of the Special Jury Award.

Winner of the Intra.NET award 2019 in the main category was Liberty Mutual Insurance with their project “Employee Digital Assistant”. Thanks to their new easy-to-use interface, integrated chatbot and artificial intelligence they were able to experience significant improvements in productivity for example by having a 70% reduction in the number of clicks required for employees to obtain key information, cost savings and improved employee satisfaction across all departments, including over 50 000 employees. The 2nd place went to The Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research and their project “Chem Recommender: Connecting Chemists via Lab Notebook Mining” which helps over 126 000 employees world-wide to share their findings faster thus enhancing drug discovery and increasing their productivity. City of Roseville and their project “The HUB” won the 3rd place thanks to their successfully managed project to increase collaboration and knowledge exchange, done in a record time.

During the Intra.NET Reloaded Award Ceremony, the jury gave also a ‘Special Jury award’ for a project that achieved outstanding results and therefore deserved special recognition. The special category was won by Liberty Mutual Insurance, making them the favorite of both jury and the audience. As one of the jury members commented: “The integration of multiple disparate systems that require action is not necessarily new – but it is exceptionally challenging – and the success of that endeavour is in and of itself notable” and “The metrics tell the story here! Impossible to achieve that success without a user friendly interface.”

The award winners of the Intra.NET award did not only receive a trophy and certificate proving their excellence, but also donated 1,000 $ on behalf of we.CONECT to support a charity project. This year, the Intra.NET Boston award supported Boston Cares, the largest volunteer agency in New England. Filling more than 25,000 volunteer spots annually in support of more than 180 Greater Boston schools and non-profit agencies, Boston Cares offers a wide array of programs and opportunities that make it simple for the Boston locals to volunteer.  Volunteers of Boston Cares transform communities through service and civic engagement, helping to beat poverty, ensure young people succeed, and more.
