"Way Easier to Use *and* is Used WAY More Often than Sharepoint Site"

What do you like best?

Simplicity. Single Sign On. Super Support. Amazing Customer Service.

Facebook is working on their own social Intranet @Work, but it pales in comparison (in our opinion) to the flexibility of ThoughtFarmer.

From the initial sales overview all the way through implementation, ThoughtFarmer and the many amazing people there have always looked for ways to help us make our dreams for what our Intranet could be come to life.

This platform plays nicely with our Active Directory, making it easy to onboard new employees and term any who leave. It's also easy to use, add/edit content, and design flourishes that match our brand.

What do you dislike?

There's very little to dislike, honestly. There have been some things we wished they had when we first signed up (custom templates, threaded comments, image libraries), but they have either added them without us asking as part of their roadmap OR added them because we asked in a Feature Request. They typically a major update, as well as a pretty significant additional update, every year, along with almost monthly builds that get deployed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They have a number of clients in the education, healthcare, and financial industries and all of their software is SOC II compliant for those concerned about security.

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

We were looking to replace our Sharepoint Intranet with something that people would actually login to, update information, share, collaborate, and work together. Sharepoint works fine for us to share documents, but no one is connecting or engaging in it. It is not a place where people start their day or look for information that helps them do their job. Our company saw multiple acquisitions on mergers in a short period of time and ThoughtFarmer helped us re-establish and redefine our company culture. We have a workforce that is 50% remote ThoughtFarmer has helped us stay connected.

"Get familiar with formatting ASAP!"

What do you like best?

The running carousel is great at tying all of the pages together. Searching is great, the use of tags is really beneficial

What do you dislike?

the formatting of the pages can be a bit of a nightmare, you aren't allowed to copy and paste easily. The embedding with google can make things easier BUT it can be difficult to get the coding correct so that it fits in the page the way you need it. Adding pictures could be much easier than the format that's currently in use

Recommendations to others considering the product

worth it for international communication, ease of formatting needs help but once you understand it, it does make it easier to work with

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

communication with international team is a HUGE benefit

What Employee Intranet solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Great experience! "

What do you like best?

I like how easy it is to use! Some of our team is not very tech savvy so that was a huge help. Also, the ability to customize was really helpful.

What do you dislike?

I can’t think of any major dislikes to be honest.

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

We are using it as a place to collaborate with team members spread out all over the country. We are also using it as a central hub for communication.
