Development of a second extranet
Desjardins wanted to develop a second extranet for all the employees of the various departments of the company. The target audience for the extranet was to be the department management, the Virtual Centre and the experts, approximately 200 people.
The extranet was developed under the WordPress CMS and secured via a custom module of Parkour3.

Functionalities included document downloading, a “Favourites” system and the possibility of sharing among members. A notification system was put in place to notify all users of recent news on the website. Notifications are sent via the browser on desktop or mobile devices.
Finally, since Desjardins users are often on the move, mobile adaptation was very important.
