"Our company is geographically dispersed, and the VHQ intranet is a key communications tool to keep our 200+ offices tuned in and up to speed on current initiatives. What I like best about it though, is that I don't have to rely on our IT department to make changes or modifications. We built it so that I'm completely self-sufficient - if I need to upload a new story, announce a new project or even change an address - I can do it myself in just a few seconds."
