Stop for a moment and think about all the tools you use in your work life. I bet the ones you use daily sprang to mind pretty quickly, but there are probably others you use every few weeks or months that were harder to recall. Here at InterWorks, we have a tools page with 79 links that doesn't even cover everything we all use as a company. Not to mention all the files, resources, dashboards, datasets and other important links that we need to remember.

Your Proverbial Tool Belt

For most of us, that's where the internal intranet comes into play. They help us tame the great wilderness of tools and assets, providing employees with easy access to information, resources and communication. However, with the growing importance of data in today's business world, it's essential that your intranet also provides access to the data and insights that employees need to make informed decisions. This often involves the manual work of generating embed codes and building out pages to include analytics content or getting your IT to develop a solution.

Curator removes these roadblocks by making it easy to create a custom intranet, import all your analytics content and deliver a better employee experience, thus helping your company use data to make better decisions. In a nutshell, Curator is a website builder that anybody can use and integrates seamlessly with some of the most common tools, like Tableau, Power BI and ThoughtSpot. We also make it easy to do manual embeds for any tool that supports it, meaning you can bring many of your existing tools (analytics or not) into a single user interface for your employees. All of this unlocks your data's power and provides employees with the insights they need to make informed decisions.
