Yale Selects TimeVision for Intranet-Based Charting

Yale University Thursday selected TimeVision Inc. OrgPublisher for Intranets to chart their employees using corporate intranets.

Yale University uses OrgPublisher for Intranets to track its facilities employees -- workers in the engineering, finance, administration and information systems departments.

Yale Network Administrator Mike Fanara chose OrgPublisher for Intranets because of its ease of use, he said.

"People outside the facilities office may not understand the way our department is organized, so we're providing a Web-based tool that graphically illustrates this information for them," Fanara said.

"And instead of each department doing its own organizational chart by passing around a piece of paper, we thought the smarter way to go is an accurate and interactive organization chart on the university intranet."

Yale is one of many educational institutions turning to technology firms for intranets, which are more and more becoming integral cogs for communication within office environments.
