ABOUT Young PostNL
Smart portal connects young PostNL professionals
Young PostNL, the youth association of PostNL (provider of postal and parcel services in the Netherlands), offers employees the opportunity to strengthen their network by participating in a variety of events, workshops, and outings. A cleverly designed portal is the center of all activities as well as a networking tool for members. Furthermore, the public part of the site is an important ‘online business card’ that PostNL uses to recruit new talent.
Modern, versatile application
The website that was originally developed for this purpose no longer met PostNL’s requirements. The design was outdated, members regularly had problems logging in, and event management was laborious. Furthermore, the site couldn’t function as a networking tool that connected members with each other and helped them organize a variety of activities – which happened to be one of PostNL’s essential demands.
Focus on events and networking
The portal has a smart management system for events. Members can log in, register for an event, see who will participate, too, and contact each other in a fast and easy way. In the public part of the site, everyone can find out more about the ‘who’ and ‘what’ of Young PostNL and read what it’s got to offer in terms of new, upcoming talent.
Many processes are automated in the user-friendly back end. It’s easy to manage the part that is public and the part that can only be accessed by members. Administrators are kept informed of usage statistics by email. Additionally, a Mailchimp newsletter template has been developed to keep members informed of the latest events and encourage them to visit the site.
Secure handling of confidential information
Besides ease of use for members and administrators, security was essential. Way2Web has a lot of experience with applications involving confidential information. The connection with PostNL’s SAP system has been made in phases. In the first phase, we used manual imports. In the second, the connection was realized, meaning the database of Young PostNL is always a reflection of the SAP database.
