“Steegle’s intranet solutions aptly align with the specific needs of modern enterprises.” – Tom Box

Optimized Operational Excellence with Steegle.One

Founded in 2000, Blue Zoo stands as a premier British animation studio renowned for award-winning series like Alphablocks, Numberblocks, and The Adventures of Paddington Bear. Operating from their hubs in London and Brighton and powered by a fervent team of over 200 artists, Blue Zoo’s company wide commitment to inclusivity and environmental standards has been acknowledged with their B Corp certification in 2021.

Challenges

As Blue Zoo broadened its horizons, the imperative for a user-friendly, efficient employee experience system intensified to improve productivity. Happeo intranet, their initial choice a few years back, while usable had some challenges Many of its features were to complex for a mid size organisation with limited management resources and social engagement tools seemed redundant given Blue Zoo’s use of Google Chat, leading to inefficiencies and a less than optimal user experience.

Furthermore, Happeo’s constrained setup, combined with its relatively high price point, mismatched with Blue Zoo’s vision of a nimble, cost-effective, and flexible platform that could fully reflect the engaging Bluezoo brand. A pivotal concern was the safe containment of sensitive HR data, eliminating unwarranted third-party risks.

Solution

Steegle’s Steegle.One News and People tools, renowned for their well-designed interfaces and content-management capabilities, coupled with their competitive pricing, perfectly mirrored Blue Zoo’s requirements. Designed to work harmoniously side by side to Google Chat, these tools promised to curate timeless stories, bolstering comms and overall employee productivity.

The Intranet portal’s look and feel could be effortlessly custom-tailored, allowing Blue Zoo to infuse their unique branding and visual design finesse. Moreover, with Steegle’s solutions, all data was anchored securely within Blue Zoo’s Google Workspace, with single sign-on ensuring quick, secure access and obliterating any third-party security apprehensions.
