The new Home Page for inTIREnet 

​​​The Solution

inTIREnet, Canadian Tire’s Intranet solution consisting of over 15,000 unique sites, pages, documents, and images, is accessed by 4,500+ employees, and approximately 40 publishers.  Originally built on legacy Lotus Notes technology, the system was migrated to Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 and launched across the organization in June, 2008.  Receiving not just a technical upgrade but also a look and feel refresh, the new inTIREnet is much cleaner, visually appealing, and more intuitive. Search, which was an issue with the previous platform, is also now much richer and very functional.

Where data governance was previously an issue, standard out-of-the-box functionality of SharePoint enables documents to appear on and expire from sites automatically without administrator intervention. T​hanks to a clean site structure and clearly classified data, the site now offers easy navigation and rich search capabilities across a variety of document types.

Enhanced Search CapabilitiesAdvanced Search Features 

Canadian Tire benefits from a progressive corporate culture of social networking, and the collaboration features of SharePoint meshed well with the environment. A highly functional People Search brings people, resources and information closer together, and the system has growth potential with Enterprise Search.
