YBI Extranet launches in just 6 weeks
Polemark was appointed to develop a new extranet for The Prince’s Youth Business International (YBI), an international network of programmes that help disadvantaged young people to become entrepreneurs by providing business mentoring and funds.
The new extranet is part of a larger project to upgrade the website, extranet, intranet and other sites, and the first stage involved choosing a suitable content management platform for YBI. Polemark recommended Immediacy CMS (recently renamed Alterian Content Manager - Corporate Edition) as the best system to meet YBI’s requirements.
The main challenge of the initial extranet development was to present the new extranet featuring a mentoring toolkit to key stakeholders at YBI’s annual conference which only gave Polemark six weeks to install the system, design and develop the site, and train the editors to input content.
The new extranet was ready and fully tested with time to spare. It was extremely well received by the delegates who were pleased with the new resource.
