Netsight launched the original Belron® intranet based on Plone 2.5 in 2007. Since then we have launched regional intranets for Carglass® Germany, Carglass® Spain and Carglass® Belux. In 2011 the Belron® intranet was upgrade to Plone 4 and included a number of social features including microblogging, blogs, and forums. We have also developed a number of public microsites for corporate social responsibility and employee recognition. In this talk we will cover the history of the development and the related sites and features developed on top of Plone over the past four years.
