"Excellent intranet solution for connecting our employee base"

What do you like best?

Simpplr's interface is incredibly easy to navigate and is very intuitive for admins to configure our site. We have a good number of content managers from various departments, and Simpplr allows for easy coordination of content upload/management. We have had very little technical help, but when we have, the team responded quite quickly and worked together to identify solutions.

What do you dislike?

While the Sites -oriented architecture is a great way for us to organize the information, there is little flexibility in creating more beyond that. That said, we are able to seamlessly integrate everything we need for our intranet solution using Simpplr's architecture.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They are fantastic to work with, very professional.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Bleacher Report is using Simpplr as our employee intranet service, with the goal of using it for team collaboration in the near future. We had a business need for revitalizing the look and feel of the our intranet to streamline company-wide communication, onboarding resources, and other documentation. The org chart / people discovery feature is also critical to filling a big business need.

"simpplr has helped us connect."

What do you like best?

We came from a very flat intranet with information being pushed from one source. simpplr allows for information and ideas to flow in every direction. Much more engaging for our associates and lets everyone in on what's happening in the organization.

What do you dislike?

Not much I dislike, other than some of the quirks between Salesforce and simpplr (though I think some of that is addressed in the Winter '18 update). I would like to be able to see who of our associates are the most frequent users and who aren't getting into it and don't think that is possible now.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Simpplr was very easy to get up and running and while it is taking some time for all of our associates to get on board, we continue to use this as the hub for any and all communication, information, events, pictures etc...making it difficult for anyone not to use it. The support has been phenomenal.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have 8 locations and e-mail was the primary source of communicating to everyone. That meant full inboxes, saved e-mails, lost e-mails and information. Having simpplr allows us to keep information in one place that we can both push out to associates or they can find easily on the various sites we've created. Additionally ANYONE can add content, so we are sharing information among teams and the entire corporation.

"Native Salesforce intranet that is easy to use and implement"

What do you like best?

Given that we're in Australia we were initially concerned with the time zone challenges, however, the Simpplr team were really organised and the implementation ran really smoothly. From kick off to go live we were up and running within 6 weeks and required minimal admin support outside of Simpplr’s team.

What do you dislike?

As the platform is native to Salesforce, the site feeds are full of Chatter posts that aren't relevant to the intranet content on the site. It would be great to have an option to remove Salesforce Chatter posts from the Simpplr site feeds.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We launched Simpplr with the aim of improving internal communication across the business. We have been gradually building out the sites over the past year and it has now become a central repository for all business processes and policies etc. One of the great things is that as each business area has ownership of their own site, so the responsibility for updating and maintaining content is now everyone's responsibility, not just left to a couple of people in the business.

"Excellent Platform and Excellent Support"

What do you like best?

The platform and interface is sleek and super user friendly, content is easy to upload, manage, discuss and comment on. The ability to segregate some "sites" and have others used for system wide access make this is an excellent all round platform

However, what really sets Simpplr apart is their support. They have been with us every step of the way from answering questions, to making minor tweaks and digging in and getting their hands dirty.

Can’t recommend the platform or support staff highly enough.

What do you dislike?

My only wish list item would be a better, more detailed, integration into Google Analytics. There is a reasonably good Analytics piece within the platform and a basic integration into Google Analytics but would love to get the typ of analytics available that you would find in a good membership website.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Would highly recommend. Looked at a bunch of products/services before settling on Simpplr and everyone involved agrees it was the correct approach.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are not using Simpplr in a traditional "one way" Intranet. We are actually using the platform to enable online collaboration, discussion and repository for Organization materials. We somewhat push the limits of the platform but it has filled a large gap leveraging SalesForce

"Simpplr has helped us connect our distributed workforce"

What do you like best?

We have a very distributed team across 16 offices and with 30% of our employees working from home. Simpplr is great because it allows everyone to find the information they need, helps all employees collaborate on projects, and was easy to implement (we have a very lean IT team).

Simpplr is also very easy to use and has strong integrations with the other enterprise systems WestEd was already using (e.g.,Salesforce, Box, Slack).

What do you dislike?

That is a hard question to answer. We have been very happy with the product and support.

Recommendations to others considering the product

With any intranet project, reach across department lines and get alignment. Company communications works best with a collaborative, cross-company approach. It shouldn’t be held up in one silo.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Simpplr has helped our distributed workforce find the information they need and collaborate on projects. Since implementing Simpplr, WestEd has shut down many email distribution lists to reduce its overall email volume, since both the content and communication now resides within the intranet. In addition, both IT and HR helpdesk support ticket volumes are decreasing, as employees are now able to find the information they need without any human assistance. Furthermore, we now have a real-time feedback mechanism, empowering its employees to ask questions and provide immediate feedback.

Most importantly, whereas project collaboration used to take place in an ad hoc, disconnected way, today employees use the social intranet to collaborate on projects, thus increasing overall efficiency and quality.

"Very positive experience using Simpplr for our intranet. Easy, and helps with Salesforce adoption."

What do you like best?

We use Salesforce chatter for communication, so we like that the feed can be integrated on any site page. The setup of Simpplr was easy, the support has been excellent, and using Simpplr has really helped with our Salesforce adoption. I can build apps in SF and link to them from articles on the intranet, and the user can seamlessly get to a salesforce page because they are logged into Simpplr.

What do you dislike?

We wish the calendar were available in a month view, instead of just event views.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommended. We all love it! We've been able to distribute the maintenance of the intranet, since the product is so easy to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Again, the integration between Salesforce and Simpplr makes it easy to move reluctant users seamlessly into salesforce apps by linking from articles and procedures. We use the Simpplr people page as our directory, and keep all our business procedures and employee manuals on the intranet. The search functions are great; makes it easy for our employees to find what they need.

"A great intranet to foster our company culture "

What do you like best?

The Simpplr intranet, internally branded VitalConnect, immediately established itself as our virtual watercooler. Employees are trained to log in and enjoy the site with their morning cup of coffee. It’s where we announce new sales, call out employee wins, celebrate anniversaries, and broadcast critical company-wide announcements. Employees noted a stronger sense of community and understand how their contribution fits into the bigger picture.

I like that we’ve been able to distribute the intranet’s maintenance by spreading site ownership across departments. This has helped improve the company’s interdepartmental transparency. We also administer mandatory HIPAA training and updates through Simpplr. Additionally, our CEO stays connected to the growing employee base with his own site. He’s able to share his perspective on the market, congratulate teams on their hard work, and give employees insights about how he’s spending his time.

VitalConnect also offers employees a popular “non-work related” site, the VitalWare Playground, where users can engage and connect through activities such as sharing recipes, posting family photos, and even running fantasy football pools. It’s a great way to humanize the work experience and help co-workers bond across geographic and departmental boundaries. VitalConnect is among VitalWare’s most successful and critically used software deployments. More than 85 percent of employees use the site at least weekly.

What do you dislike?

There really isn't anything that we dislike about Simpplr. However, it does seem that when they are developing updates, they seem to be most compatible with Window's 10 , and the majority of our employees are still on Windows 7.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Simpplr is a great way for you to engage your employees, especially if you have a workforce that includes remote workers!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Remote employees have noted, unsolicited, that Simpplr actually makes them feel as if they’re in the office. And the intranet has nearly eliminated company-wide emails.

It has also greatly helped with the onboarding process by giving new employees a starting place to ramp up and connect with others across the organization. We actually made posting a profile picture mandatory because it has helped employees get better acquainted.

Net-net: VitalWare’s employee attrition is far below industry averages. Employee engagement scores are high. And VitalWare’s Glassdoor ratings are above 4 out of 5. While this is not fully attributable to one software platform, the technology plays an extremely important role in our cultural engagement strategy.

"Intranet management and employee engagement"

What do you like best?

Remarkably easy to use for a intranet manager as well as user. We launched and had immediate engagement from our employees due to the ease of use and familiarity of layout relative to other social media sites used externally. The flexibility of the site has allowed us to create engaging content to greater employee audience as well as targeted audiences, providing a more targeted communication. The social feed is key - allowing employee voice to blend with corporate content keeping things less top-down.

What do you dislike?

In our user case, employees have trouble determining what content is blessed corporate content that they need to do their job VS. content that employees put on their own sites. There isn't a way to divide the intranet of resources from the social intranet.

Also have some inconsistancies in UX/UI when writing articles, saving drafts, removing articles. Terminologies aren't as logical as could be to make sense to the basic administrator.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It will change the way you communicate, once you get over the fear of opening a social channel to your entire company.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are slowly eliminating email by providing open channels of broad communcation as well as private rooms where employees can conduct group communications. We've realized the benefits of having the employee voice being heard in a forum blessed on a corporate level.

We also solved for requests for promotional content coming from groups that we coudln't fulfill. We provided the tools finally.

"Simpplr Review"

What do you like best?

As a company and System admin, we really like how user friendly the program is. You don't need to be programming wizard to understand how to set up and use Simpplr. They make it easy to understand, they don't over complicate things and they listen to when you need help. The support you get from your customer success manager and their development team is amazing.

What do you dislike?

There hasn't been anything we dislike, only thing we wished we could do is because we use SImpplr within Salesforce, we named Simpplr internally as the Drive, we wish it could tab with the same name in Salesforce to keep it consistent.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Communication in the size of our company is important, and we found that we were growing and information was getting to our employees quick enough. With Simpplr we were able to create pages for each department and share the latest and greatest with everyone. Simpplr has become the "google" of our company, easy search fields and has helped trickle down information easily to all our front line staff.

"Simpplr is Indeed Simple to Use!"

What do you like best?

We use Simpplr for our Intranet at our company and we saw a very high level of adoption by our users because of the simplicity of the tool. With technology, the easier to use the better, and Simpplr has nailed this while also providing the full functionality and sophistication that we need for an Intranet site. Users are able to quickly find events, to praise each other for a job well done, and to just share material that is pertinent to all of us.

What do you dislike?

As an administrator in Salesforce, when I look at my feed on the Intranet I am able to see comments I put in Chatter feeds of various objects I work on in Salesforce. I wish we could segregate the content from the Intranet and the content from Salesforce directly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it for our Intranet but also for internal communications and for scheduling meetings.

"Very positive intranet supplier! Allows for better user performance than Jive-n"

What do you like best?

I could go on about how much better Simpler is compared to other platforms! First of all, the app is more user friendly and has overall better user experience for across the board. The design is impeccable and I never once had to deal with IT! We made the switch from another Intranet platform and the user friendliness was lacking. We would spend much time communicating with IT and it became an inefficient tool to use. I truly enjoy using Simpplr as it is the top rated intranet provider our office has used. The integration from Salesforce makes it easy for me at work. We had had the ability to create a cohesive digital workplace with strong integrations using the tools.

What do you dislike?

Organizational charts in the platform can sometimes be hard to deal with. Nothing appears to be a challenge for me and my coworkers when integrating information on the daily.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use their app and truly take advantage of the Salesforce integration. When I was a user of this, it really made my job more efficient.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Positive productivity and less problem resolution. Very efficient now!

"Hub 2.0 provide an easy and central location for employees to get important company information"

What do you like best?

As our company began to grow, it became increasingly difficult to share and store important company information in a location that everyone has easy access to. Once Hub 2.0 was implemented, the amount of questions that would "spam" all in the company drastically reduced. Clarity is key in a growing company and that is what Hub 2.0 provided. Plus, it was super easy to learn how to use!

What do you dislike?

Honestly, my experience with Hub 2.0 was amazing and I have no negative feedback.

Recommendations to others considering the product

All you need to do is try this solution out and you will love it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As our company grew, and more and more employees were based away from head quarters, it became increasingly difficult to share a consistent message that everyone has access to across all of our locations. Immediately after implementing your solution, all employees knew where they needed to go to get the information they required. This also helps with our employees not at HQ to feel closer to the company rather than a distant after thought.

"Simpplr gives us everything we needed!"

What do you like best?

Simpplr is a great tool for our offices. We have offices all across the US and we use it as a tool to help connect our employees with all their colleagues. It's been a wonderful tool that helps us bring out more comradery and offers our employees a chance to celebrate everyone's achievements, but also offer advice and insight on strategies that may be beneficial for everyone.

What do you dislike?

The calendar system. We like to do things like plug in employee workiversaries and birthdays. We wish there was a way to have events occur on an annual basis, versus having to update it manually .

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a great product! Very robust and really gives you all you can want from such a software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have a lot of documents that are used universally that previously wasn't saved in a place where everyone had access. We are now able to save important documents and set privacy settings so that information is dispersed properly.

"Great social intranet platform for growing teams"

What do you like best?

Simpplr has a simple, easy-to-use interface, strong social features, and a strong infrastructure to allow our teams to communicate, like, post, and share easily. As a knowledge-management tool it's helped us consolidate documents and information to be the single point of access for our team needs from onboarding to work processes.

What do you dislike?

The core of the interface is the site feature, which is a great way to break up categorical content and/or provide a sandbox for small or large teams to converse and share. That said, the architecture is a little plain, so more options to create both simple sites all the way up to robust, multi-level sites with more granular features would be fantastic.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With a team of 200+ people, communication is critical, as is transparency and information sharing. Simpplr not only provides us with a platform that's taken the place of multiple other products, but it's enjoyable to use, which keeps the team engaged and makes the entire ecosystem much more vibrant as a result.

"Simpplr Made our Intranet Simple "

What do you like best?

We found multiple products that integrated with SalesForce, but none as easy to use as Simpplr. What Simpplr offers out of the box delivered 98% of the functionality we were looking for, and when we submitted ideas for future development and saw those incorporated, the product really delivered on all fronts. It's also great to have a product where the content can easily be managed by non-IT folks, and SSO means it's not yet another product our associates have to log into. Also LOVE having a branded app that our associates can download. Being able to look up contact info and dial from your cell is a huge perks!

What do you dislike?

Making sure photos are the right dimensions to upload is not my favorite thing to do but it's a small hurdle to an otherwise great product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Publishing content to our associates is so much easier thanks to Simpplr and is now much more dynamic than a simple email. We also love the app and that way it allows us to look up contact info remotely. Being able to organize content, add expiration dates, or restrict who can view certain content has really changed the way we handle our intranet. Whereas before most of the work fell on IT, now, the backbone is maintained by IT but the day-to-day usages and content is done by our Corporate Communications team and that's a win-win for sure.

"Admin/User experience of Simpplr"

What do you like best?

- The plateforme is userfriendly.

- Easy to administrate

- The synchronisation with salesforce is very helpful

- Technical support and advice from the Simpplr team

What do you dislike?

The message from Simpplr is not synchronised to salesforce.

It will be great to have the synchronisation in both ways

Simpplr is in English. (Training videos are very good but is in english)

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a pleasure to work with the Simpplr team. They have a good follow up of their customers and has good advice.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Simpplr helped us put in place an intranet for our company.

What do you like best?

Overall user experience, interactive org chart, ability to make quick posts

What do you dislike?

Recommendations to others considering the product

From the tech-savvy to the "tech-disinterested," this platform accommodates different skill levels with the familiarity of social media sites.

We're bringing employees resources that they're searching for, housing important executive messages and keeping the "fun" alive to strengthen the culture (co-ed sports info, events, photo albums, etc)

The more people use it, the better they like it.

"Easy set up, great partners"

What do you like best?

The set up couldn't be easier! It's a very user friendly interface so that means groups and individuals are empowered to own their content - that said, there are various security settings too. Beyond being a great product built on Salesforce - which is a bonus if you're already on Salesforce; it simplifies user management - the Simpplr team is fantastic. We re-started the implementation multiple times but due to shifting priorities it took us a few tries before we finally got the ball rolling. The team was so patient and we were met with enthusiasm every time!

What do you dislike?

I've see the product grow a tremendous amount over the last two years. They continue adding more features and functionality without cluttering things and making it overly complicated. The one feature I'd love to see is a visual calendar layout to view events and more granular control over which sites can create events vs. all or nothing feature.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When we selected Simpplr it met our criteria for MVP (minimum valuable product), offered a transparent, progressive product roadmap, offered sustainability and compatibility with our existing systems (as it's built on the Salesforce platform), was the most affordable provider, and provided great partnership - just as important as a product! It ticked all the boxes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We implemented Simpplr to bring how we work in person to a virtual environment. We wanted a place to find information, ask questions, and stay in the know. We also wanted a one-stop-shop for content as well as an easy landing page that links to other commonly used apps so if you only log-in to one thing, it's Simpplr and you can launch the rest of your day from there. We tremendously benefited from having a people directory - something we had previously kept in a powerpoint! I also love the blog feature - it helps build a personal brand at work.

"Quick deployment, intuitive and great support team"

What do you like best?

The ease of use with minimum to no technical expertise. Once you iron out your requirements, sites, content and layouts, the deployment is insanely fast! Support has the needed expertise and is solutions-oriented.

What do you dislike?

The inability to pick and chose which enhancements to deploy with each new release, however this is how SaaS models work.

"Hub 2.0 with Simpplr"

What do you like best?

It's easy to navigate and very user friendly. Everything you need in one space. It also shows what events are upcoming and any holidays that Pure may have. Pure also uploads all the company's all hands meeting and any videoed meeting/chats to the site for others who may not have been able to join to viet.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing that I've encountered to dislike what Simpplr has done for Pure's Hub 2.0.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I believe Simpplr is making work life easier for the company by allowing it's employees to be interactive and in the know with what's going on with the company. Any documents that an employee would need can be added onto the site.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The Hub was created for Pure employees to interact with other employees and to gather information on the company/work easier. Everything in one spot.

"Simpplr helped us manage communication and culture as we grew"

What do you like best?

I like Simpplr’s user experience for its intuitive usability and design and its prebuilt integrations to with some of the other key technologies we use (e.g., Salesforce, Workday, and Okta).

What do you dislike?

To really get the most value from Simpplr, your organization needs to be committed to it so enablement needs to be focused on and a team dedicated towards it during the first few months.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our Simpplr initiative was focused at addressing the following issues: (i) employees were feeling more disconnected, and (ii) we needed a platform to serve as the single source of truth for company information. Simpplr has helped us improve internal communication to our global employee base, even as we have continued to grow. In addition, employees that span different departments, locations, and tenures are much better connected, as we continue to expand.

"A great social intranet for the enterprise"

What do you like best?

The ability to share, disseminate, and collaborate around information for the entire enterprise. The ability to have distinct interest groups and have employees collaborate and share information. Someone non-technical can setup an entire communications portal in as short as a few hours.

What do you dislike?

Adoption. As great as Simpplr is, it takes a bit of effort in gaining adoption. However, that is not the fault of the product. People are used to what they're used to. It hard to leave email behind!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great product to consider if you have Salesforce, and all of your users are on Salesforce.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Employee communication. Social collaboration amongst groups. Social intranet.

"Pleased with it"

What do you like best?

I find the ease of use that's been worked into the product to be very comfortable. The innovative thinking is refreshing to see and to use. This is a perfect testament to how intranets should be developed in today's day and age. Having agile annealed into its core makes it all the more attractive.

What do you dislike?

There isn't much to dislike in this but if I was pressed, I'd say the initial deployment was a bit of work. I'm not sure it could be any simpler so I can't fault the company for it but that's the one thing I didn't like to do.

"Thoughts on Simpplr"

What do you like best?

The engagement with customers is definitely a winning strategy. As a customer it is important to feel like you have a voice when it comes to the product, and the Simpplr team definitely is receptive to feedback. This is evident by the long list of release notes with each new release.

What do you dislike?

I can't pinpoint it, but the look and feel definitely has a legacy feel to it. It doesn't seem as modern as most applications.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Simpplr is really easy to use as a user, and as an admin. If you're looking to adopt an effective intranet solution, Simpplr can accommodate rather quickly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Communication. As a rapidly growing company, its important for new and existing employees to be aware of processes and policies. We leverage Simpplr to help distribute that information via integration with Box.

"Company Only Social network"

What do you like best?

Easy to use, social network for employees. Intuitive to use and accessible by all employees. It makes employee communication easy, having a single landing page with a chronological feed. It allows posts to be highlighted at top so can't miss important posts. Has the ability to reply and "Like" comments allowing for engagement across all employees. Has Portals so employer can provide easy and accessible landing pages to access documents. Sends weekly round up emails to highlight the weeks posts and allows all employees to stay informed. Has the option to follow employees so you can stay connected with those that you are most interested in. Easy to connect with colleagues.

What do you dislike?

It requires buy in from the employees. Not everyone consistently checks or posts to it. This tool requires full engagement from employees. It results in only a select few employees consistently using. Need to find ways to encourage more interaction. The line between social and work is blurred with this tool. Not always sure what content is appropriate.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great, initiative to use social network for employees. A single landing page allows for easy and intuitive communication across all employees.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A single communication hub for all non urgent news. No longer does the company have to blast office wide employees about every announcement. This allows not as urgent announcements to be seen across the company, and Likes and Comments allow for easy engagement by all employees.

What do you like best?

Ease of configuration, high-quality user interface, devotion to product development and expert sales and support team.

What do you dislike?

The fact that it runs natively on Salesforce is a plus but it does result in constraints based on Chatter files (cannot hide files folder from sites)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommend giving Simpplr a look, particularly if you are are a Salesforce shop.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Employee engagement, internal communication, team-building. Simpplr has allowed us to have a centralized, mobile-accessible platform to keep our growing company connected and maintain our close-knit culture.

"Simpplr was a great improvement from our previous intranet tool that was built in-house."

What do you like best?

I like having the ability for employees to post information to the feed and that posts can include pictures or videos. It is a great way to share information across the company.

What do you dislike?

Our implementation process was not very smooth. We had a number of questions that wouldn't get answered and kept getting pushed off until the very end. There were quite a few technical issues that had to get fixed before we could roll out the intranet to our company.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business benefit of having Simpplr is having one place for employees to go to search for internal documents, receive updates and to communicate across departments.

"Simple to Use, Excellent Functionality & Roadmap"

What do you like best?

Simpplr provides a streamlined user interface compared to many competitors, which is a key element in driving employee engagement. Pre-built integrations are excellent and the team is great to work with.

What do you dislike?

At the time I was involved with this project, third-party integrations were somewhat limited, but that is to be expected with a small, but growing company. They did have many plans for future integrations that would be huge value adds for certain organizations.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Globally remote communication can be difficult, but Simpplr provides the tools to enable success through a single communications hub. Consumer-like interface and flexible content options provide a solid backbone through which to build employee engagement.

"Great intranet with an easy UI"

What do you like best?

It's just really easy. Easy to find stuff from lunch menus to HR forms. Easy to locate people in other departments. Easy to see what's going on in other offices. Easy to post content.

What do you dislike?

I wish we better utilized the Box/Simpplr integration. It would be great to search all of our Box content through this search as well. I know the integration exists and we haven't implemented.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's nice to have a place where people can go to connect with coworkers they don't know very well. It makes it easier to approach coworkers when I know a little bit more about them - both at personal level and within work.

"Nice intranet with an easy UI"

What do you like best?

It's a very clean tool that's easy to use. The search works great. And it seems to do a good job keeping information relevant and up-to-date. Previous intranets always got stale. I also like that it integrates with Salesforce--it's easier to get adoption.

What do you dislike?

I'm looking forward to the updated branded mobile app that is coming out shortly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's a good place to streamline all of our company communications (i.e. executive updates, HR benefits, etc.). And I get a better sense of what's going on in some of our other offices.

Simpplr is an easy tool to start using for any Organization. We went from zero to full implementation in one month. If you already use Salesforce, it is very easy to support and learn.

Due to the fact that it is so easy to use, it isn't as customizable as other Intranet options.

We were able to consolidate our on-boarding processes and create a single place to hold all of our important policies.
