Experts in intranet & extranet development
Intranet and extranet
We have developed, and continue to support, intranets and extranets for clients including the Cabinet Office (Resilience Direct), Wesleyan Assurance, the Environment Agency and the Metropolitan Police Service.
The skills and services that underpin intranet and extranet applications are inherited from our web application service.
Our intranet is at the hub of our internal communications, so when we launched our refreshed brand to customers, the intranet also needed to reflect our new look and feel, to ensure staff were fully aware of the changes and messages we wanted to project.

Case Study: Delivering a collaborative Digital Workplace for the Metropolitan Police Force
Digital transformation is essential to the Metropolitan Police Service, to enable a modern and efficient policing service. Their Intranet is the ‘homepage’ platform that connects a mobile and disparate workforce.
In October 2017, the Metropolitan Police Intranet project won 'Highly Commended' in the Best use of digital to an internal audience category at the Digital Impact Awards.
Data exchange & security
CDS designs, implements and supports two-way secure data exchange services. For example, we set up the Highways Agency’s traffic information news service that provides data about road conditions, traffic warnings and roadworks that the media and many individuals rely on.
Our security credentials:
- CDS has ISO27001 (Information Security Management System)
- our staff are typically ‘SC’ cleared by the UK Defence Vetting Authority
- our services can be tested by external third parties
- our coding standards are available to customers so they can vet the source code’s security
- our services have been verified by CESG (the UK’s National Technical Authority for Information Assurance)
- we are among a handful of organisations approved to connect directly to the UK government’s secure intranet
Wesleyan Case Study
CDS, EPiServer’s largest UK Premium Partner, provides Wesleyan with technical expertise and ongoing support as it continues to build and develop its intranet, supporting the company’s ambitious growth strategy.
Wesleyan, like all financial services providers, faces the challenges posed by digital transformation. Access to information and knowledge within the organisation and improved ways to communicate across the traditional departmental boundaries are vital to the process. CDS is helping Wesleyan to develop their Intranet to meet these challenges.
With CDS as a partner we have created a solution that assists our marketing efforts in providing real demonstrable ROI and business benefits.
