Rejlers Embriq has provided IT services to Norwegian Church Aid for many years through agreements for IT operations that have been renegotiated and extended several times. Now the agreement is expanding with future-oriented tools to help improve interaction.

Valo Intranet and Office 365 provide very good interaction

Norwegian Church Aid has decided to use Valo Intranet together with Office 365, to create a modern, user-friendly and effective tool for interaction.

“Our partnership with Valo enables us to offer an easy-to-use intranet solution with modular infrastructure that Norwegian Church Aid will integrate with its existing systems.”

The solution includes news publishing, social hub, blogs, video, events, idea management and much more. This is a forward-looking solution that is 100% integrated with Office365, with over 300,000 users worldwide, Eriksen says.

Most assistance under extreme conditions

“Norwegian Church Aid works to create safe and resilient communities to protect and save the lives of people living in extreme poverty, fragility and emergencies in the best and most efficient way possible,”  says Norwegian Church Aid IT Manager, Bjørn Are Geithus.

We often work under difficult conditions with limited resources and sometimes a lack of infrastructure. In these situations, well-functioning multisite interaction is important to help enable our employees to best do their jobs.
