75 Votes

Arthur was launched in May 2013, bringing together over 1,100 staff located in 91 global offices and centres.  Arthur is a collaborative space combining publishing and online sharing, with work-related content, a staff directory, news, communities, forums, blogs, and social features including commenting and ‘liking’.  Arthur’s home-page news feed has tailored content driven by employee self-selecting groups as well as office location news.  The home-page also has a top ten (based on number of likes and how new the item is) – which creates a bit of healthy competition! The concept is based around ACCA’s first president, Arthur Priddle, who set the values we still live by today, nearly 110 years later. There is a cartoon Arthur at the top of each page, complete with turn-of-the-century moustache for good measure. It is run on software developed by ThoughtFarmer.

    Arthur is extremely useful for staff based remotely and in different time zones so that we can have access 24 / 7 to information and colleagues best practices through our intranet – everything is easy accessible and as we are a knowledge rich organisation, the complexity of our knowledge is very well articulated in Arthur.

    We love Arthur and we think his moustache is beautiful!
