Session 4:Introduction to IFADAsia


Benefits of a bespoke ifad space

Benefits of a ‘bespoke’ IFAD space

Because it is within our control (hosting, design, functionality, administration):

  • It cannot be taken offline unexpectedly

  • It is structured around our operational needs

  • We can build connections between it and other corporate tools/stores (e.g. RIMS)

  • There are no issues of blending personal and professional personas
