What are the benefits of an intranet software?

You might want to look at my infographic to get an answer to that question. In short, the benefits you derive are – improve productivity by providing all your employee tools in one place, spur collaboration between team members, and improve knowledge management by capturing all important information in one place.

Do I need an intranet, or an enterprise social network?

The distinctions between enterprise social networks and intranets and fast disappearing with the advent of “social intranets“. However, if you still want to make a choice between one or the other, it would depend on your objectives. An intranet software lets you deeply customize your collaboration environment for specific audiences, and present each piece of information in context. An enterprise social network on the other hand, is a very efficient way to encourage team members to communicate and share information with each other.

What is an alternative to Sharepoint for building an intranet?

HyperOffice has been positioned as a “Sharepoint alternative” for years. It is completely web based, a lot simpler than Sharepoint, brings the same collaboration features, and lets you publish highly customized intranet pages to present your productivity tools and information.

What is a good intranet software for a mid sized company?

HyperOffice is one of the most robust intranet software for a mid sized company. It isn’t as complicated and expensive as Sharepoint, and doesn’t require specialized staff to implement and maintain. A company with a small or no IT department can implement it within days. At the same time, it brings the depth of functionality and customization that one expects from mature enterprise solutions.
