The NBC/Universal extranet is used internally by the peacock network itself, its family of channels (Bravo, Univision, MSNBC and 10 others) as well as all advertisers for all stations. Needless to say, the system is a major hub for the lifeblood (advertising) of the company and its usage, or rather lack there of, was a major issue when the DIF team was brought on board. The ex-net was extremely cluttered, scattered and simply, in the clients words, “a mess.” The menu(s) were scattered all over for each sub-site. The sub-sites themselves weren’t defined by enough visual cues, hence the end user would too easily get lost in the wrong section of the ex-net. The site was completely HTML based and not cross browser compatible. DIF submitted two seperate designs and went through 20 rounds of revisions to complete the entire portal. It is used by thousands of people everyday to make the networks flow.
