An elegant SharePoint interface


The Challenge


Nomura is a global financial services group with an integrated network spanning over 30 countries. Nomura wanted to upgrade its company intranet to create more powerful and effective internal communications. Our brief was to work with Nomura's IT department to revise the existing SharePoint intranet, making it visually appealing and easy to use.


The Solution


To improve Nomura's internal communications, we implemented the following:

  • A redesign of the homepage, by our partners Athlon, to create a news-rich external website giving the whole team easy access to the latest Nomura stories and information.
  • Advanced filters to help staff customise information that could feed throughout the site.
  • Innovative custom search technology onto the SharePoint intranet, delivering a richer, multi-faceted search function to replace the previous SharePoint search facility which did not serve client requirements for easy access to information.


The Outcome


The previous design and searchability in SharePoint were limited.

We gave Nomura's intranet a fresh and functional new look. A new design with excellent UX used minimal functionality within SharePoint and weighted development towards a rich front-end experience.




"Projects like this are about seeing beyond the raw requirement for a functioning system. Traditionally intranets have not delivered a user experience of the same calibre as external websites. We are delighted to have been involved in this project, which pushed the core technology to the max, providing a high-end, rewarding experience for Nomura's users.”
