Jakob Nielsen honours silverorange intranet platform
June 21, 2004

The NRC-IRAP Intranet has been named by Jakob Nielsen and the Nielsen Norman Group as one of the Ten Best Government Intranets in their report Ten Best Government and Public Sector Intranet Designs. Working closely with silverorange, NRC-IRAP rolled out a customized version of the silverorange Intranet in their organization.

NRC-IRAP is a program of the National Research Council of Canada with over 400 employees working in 90 communities across Canada. IRAP offers innovation assistance to small and medium-sized Canadian enterprises and is regarded world-wide as one of the best programs of its kind.

This is the third time Jakob Nielsen, respected web usability expert, has honoured the silverorange intranet platform. The silverorange intranet has previously been named the Best Intranet of 2001 and in 2003, the intranet won again for its new and improved version in the Nielsen Norman Group’s Intranet Design Annual: Best Intranets of 2003.

Usability expert Jakob Nielsen, founder and principal of Nielsen Norman Group:

“The silverorange intranet has proven to be an excellent-looking and very simple-to-use system. Designs from this company have made the top ten in not one, but two of our Nielsen Norman Group Intranet Design Annuals.”

“The intranet’s interactive design combined with numerous usability methods, including field studies, basic usability tests, card sorting, and heuristic evaluations, is excellent. Because the intranet did not work perfectly right out of the box for NCR-IRAP, the team conducted more research with users to tailor the intranet for NCR-IRAP’s specific user needs, giving them an award-winning design.”
