I’ve mentioned in previous posts BT today as BT’s main intranet news site for the latest news affecting everyone in BT. But I don’t feel I’ve given it full justice until now. The problem is where to start as it has so much to offer!
BT today was one of the first sites on BT’s intranet when it was launched in 1994. It meant people could find out the latest news, whenever they wanted to and reduced the overload (and cost) of information being sent to everyone each day.
Since it’s launch BT today has been one of the most popular sites on BT’s intranet. BT raises several tens of thousands of pounds from digital advertising on the site. It has now grown to include:
- Up to 10 news stories published each day
- PDA version available for mobile users
- Subscribing to different RSS news feeds
- Raising issues that people across BT contribute to
- Sharing important events like birthdays, anniversaries, etc.
I’ve shared some examples of BT today for you to see these.
Along with BT Homepage and Directory, the BT today news site is one of the key sites that encouraged people to start using the BT Intranet. Offering a wider range of news services has encouraged people to use it more, and more frequently.
Future plans include more use of photos for each story, larger photos where suitable for stories and people able to comment on each story.
