A new website for Investors in People that would streamline content creation and improve search.
Investors in People was created by the United Kingdom government in 1991 as a non-departmental public body to help businesses with staff training and development.
After five years, the organisation decided it was time to upgrade their existing software to develop a new website.
There were two main goals: streamline the process of content creation and publishing, and make it easier for people to find what they were looking for on the site.
“We see it as a massive improvement over what we had before. For a limited development effort on our part, it's extremely powerful and useful for customers.”

Current content, easy to maintain
Investors in People chose Microsoft Office SharePoint Server to manage its public website and chose Core to implement the platform.
The system is simple and easy-to-use, ensuring content is current and easier to maintain. Content creators use programs like Microsoft Word to create and upload content to an internal version of the website, with new content automatically copied over to the live site on a nightly basis.
Reaching more people
Since the system was updated, the length of time visitors spend on site has increased and people are reading more material.The number of people requesting information packs has increased by as much as 30% – this was the primary goal.
