Mediterranean Shipping Company (UK) Ltd honoured for intranet design with Ragan award

Interact Intranet toasts Ragan award success of customer MSC UK as they win Best Design 2014 in the prestigious Employee Communication awards.

(Manchester, UK – 1st April, 2015) Interact Intranet, the intelligent intranet software company is today celebrating the success of their customer, Mediterranean Shipping Company UK Ltd (MSC UK), on winning a prestigious Ragan Employee Communication award for the design of their intranet :MYWORKSPACE.

Nigel Danson, CEO and Founder of Interact comments: “It is a fantastic achievement for all of the team at MSC UK, they have worked so hard to get :MYWORKSPACE to where it is today. The Ragan award tops off what has been a truly successful launch of an intranet that has impacted on MSC’s business from day one and will continue to impact as they move forward on their intranet journey. MSC UK has perfected the balance between great intranet design and superb user experience driven by the intelligence in Interact, which tailors information and interactions to individual users.”

The Ragan Employee Communication awards are the most prestigious in the PR and corporate communications industry for internal communications.

Jason Parkes, General Manager Customer Services for MSC comments: “All of us at MSC UK are extremely proud to have won the Ragan Award 2014 for Best Design.  It is testament to the implementation team where very early on in our planning, we decided that number one priority was that :MYWORKSPACE needed to be a site that all of our people were proud of, and also a site that was designed around how our teams wanted to organise their information. We continue to develop :MYWORKSPACE under the stewardship of our Intranet Focus group, with these aims still our number one priority and we are delighted that this approach has been recognised by such an established awards programme.”

Interact are riding high on the back of their third consecutive Ragan win with previous winners including Dollar Finance Group who were named as the Best Social Intranet of 2013 and Glasgow Housing Association who won Best Value to Employees in 2012.

Danson continues, “Interact have had tremendous success with the Ragan’s, we know our customers are doing great things with our software and we celebrate these successes with our own annual awards, but it’s also important to get that external recognition. It puts it into perspective what can be achieved regardless of size or budget, and I think these wins show that.”
