CONNECT: A GLOBAL INTRANET

WHAT IS CONNECT?

CONNECT is essentially a corporate intranet connecting Meyer employees to a dashboard of useful resources and links.

It is being designed using Human Centered Design principles, meaning that we focus on user interviews and design iteration. In this way, we are working to pinpoint and hone solutions specific to the Meyer community.
