Abstract [en]

The intranet usage is continuously growing, but many companies have yet to advanceto mobile intranet solutions for employees who work out in the field. Also due to this,many of the existing mobile intranet solutions are not designed with the field employeesuser experience in mind, who would benefit most from the mobile intranets. In the case ofdesigning for employees in the field, what would the design look like?

The objective of this thesis is to find a mobile intranet application concept that furthermostconsiders the field employees user experience. In this thesis, intranet, mobile intranetand design for intranets are investigated. Furthermore in the thesis, guidelines of mobiledesign for iOS and Android are examined. The evaluation of three current mobile intranetapplications are also presented. Ideation sketches, prototypes and a final concept applicationare developed based on interviews, literature and feedback from actual field employees. Theresults includes findings from the interviews, figures of the ideation sketches, illustration ofthe high-fidelity prototype and screenshots of the final concept application. At the end ofthe thesis, the concept application is discussed and problems that arose during the thesisare brought up.
