Many organizations supplement their employee population with third party providers, contactors and out-sourcing agreements. And to maximimize results, you will want these individuals to have targeted access to some of your intranet content.
- A school district would make some content available to its substitute teachers or non-employee athletic staff.
- A real estate firm would make some content and tools available to its independent agents.
- A software company would make large portions of their intranet content to their 1099 contractors.
Anyway, you get the point. A strict rule that limits access to your W-2 based employees may prevent you from realizing the full benefit of the platform.
No problem; with OptEngage you can easily configure your site to support this access. And better yet, this is all done by your Site Administrators; IT is not required.
All you do is decide the specific Content Apps that you would like to make available to non-employees. For example, you might want to make the Project Tracker app available to contractors working on the project team; but exclude all non-employees from your Employee Benefits microsite.
Implementation is a breeze. You use the applicable tools in your Site Management Console to adjust the permissions; then provision your external users through the User Management app. And the Reporting Portal includes reports and alerts that allow you to determine when access should be restricted or terminated.
