Habanero designed intranet named one of the ten best by Nielsen Norman Group

The SharePoint intranet Habanero designed for Canadian law firm Bennett Jones has been included in the Nielsen Norman Group's list of the ten best intranets in the world.

BenNet was created to provide a task-oriented, user-friendly platform that simplifies the process by which lawyers and employees alike can efficiently contribute to, share and reuse information within the firm. It uses a classification methodology similar to that used in online shopping to allow lawyers, on a self-serve basis, to quickly find precedents—templates, models, or previous examples of legal documents. BenNet also enables the quick assembly of these materials into helpful online guides.

Comment and notification features in BenNet allow users to share their comments on legal resources ensuring the quality of relevance of the documents. Other social intranet features have helped create a sense of community among Bennett Jones' geographically dispersed employees.

BenNet was a collaborative effort in which Habanero developed BenNet's user experience design working closely with V51 Consulting for solution architecture and SharePoint Development, and RBRO Solutions Inc. for document management system integration.

This is the second major award for BenNet. In October it was announced that BenNet won Platinum in the Intranet Innovation Awards.
