Revolutionizing internal communication in financial company.

Deutsche Vermögensberatung AG, Germany’s largest financial advisory firm has partnered with Workai to transform internal communications in a distributed environment, building a modern, engaging, and omnichannel intranet with instant access to personalized information and sales knowledge for 18,000+ financial consultants.
DVAG (Deutsche Vermögensberatung AG) has long struggled with its knowledge management systems. Relying on custom-built systems caused communication issues via emails and static web pages. Complexity grew, making access difficult for all but senior consultants. Content creation and updates became cumbersome.
DVAG’s in-house Intranet initially met needs, but couldn’t keep up with evolving demands, due to outdated tech. Obstacles included fragmented systems, restricted material access, and outdated Intranet alignment. Obsolescence worsened matters, making updates costly.
Overhauling the approach and modernizing technology were necessary solutions. The new intranet project’s key objectives were to provide a reliable and user-friendly platform for onboarding the new staff, deliver personalized internal communication, ensure instant access to product knowledge, engage consultants with senior leaders, offer detailed statistics, create multiple feedback channels, and integrate external systems and data in one place.
Facing tight schedules, limited funds, and a need for rapid results, the team chose agility and the Workai platform over starting anew. This decision clicked instantly, as the product aligned perfectly with the organization’s requirements. As the project advanced, stakeholders, departments, and the board were content with the initial outcomes. Building on this base, the intranet team took on the bigger challenge of shifting the old intranet to the shared platform. They defined objectives, partnered with stakeholders and users, crafted a plan, and started moving content using Workai’s existing functions.
