    Most people have their PCs on our intranet page open. They forget to CTRL-F5 their browsers. We put up news items that simply don't get displayed in real-time

There is no readymade webpart for this, however, an easy way out would be to add a script editor web part and add a reload script


function reloadInFive(){

Once you test it, you could publish this webparts dwp file in the web parts gallery
