LOS ANGELES, CA, July 18, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Pima Federal Credit Union has grown significantly over the last few years to a sizable 51,000 member community with 150 employees and over $400 million (US) in assets under management. As Pima Federal Credit Union grew, so did their need for a solution that could connect geographically distant employees and translate their incredible workplace culture online. The search was off to a rocky start with a difficult and ultimately failed attempt to address these needs with an intranet from Bitrix.
After abandoning the Bitrix intranet, the Pima Federal Credit Union team struck out to find an intranet that was simpler with a more comprehensive feature set to meet their needs. The team evaluated SharePoint, Intranet Connections and a few other cloud-based SaaS platforms but ultimately decided on Intranet Connections.
Ryan Sonnenberg, Community Stewardship Officer & Intranet Manager at Pima Federal Credit Union, summarized the decision saying: "After evaluating a number of intranets, Intranet Connections was the clear winner. It was so easy to set-up and didn't require the purchase of extra modules or consultants, as a SharePoint intranet would."
Sonnenberg elaborated further detailing, "Being a financial firm, we are quite focused on security, so it was also important that we kept our information in-house on our servers. Intranet Connections could deliver just that."

Earlier this year, Intranet Connections released a new Financial Intranet tailored to the needs of banks, credit unions and financial firms. Working with over 240 financial clients, Intranet Connections built an intranet with a unique feature set to the financial industry, including Member Services applications, Online Financial Forms, dedicated Compliance Council Site, Policy Management, individual Branch Sites, Compliance Checklists, Employee Satisfaction Survey and more.
Just as Sonnenberg had planned, deploying the intranet from Intranet Connections was easy and Pima Federal Credit Union was up and running with their new intranet, named 'Dwight' (after Dwight Schrute, a character from the hit TV series, The Office), in no time. Dwight quickly became the office 'Know-it-All' because of its ability to easily locate popular resources, company information and centralizing social forums for the credit union. The platform was well-received by employees and is now being used by 120 out of their 150 employees every single day.
Sonnenberg sums up their success with Intranet Connections saying, "Our time-costs savings since moving to Intranet Connections is incalculable for us. We have eliminated sending 15 to 20 company-wide emails daily and avoided recreating well over 850 documents on our intranet. Talk about cost savings!"
