Igloo Software: If you’ve ever worked in a corporate environment, you know how painful intranets can be. Often times they are poorly designed repositories of stale information, and people wind up avoiding them by just emailing file attachments back and forth.
Igloo is an intranet you’ll actually like. It’s built with easy-to-use apps, like file sharing, blogs, calendars and task management, and it works on any device – from your laptop to your tablet to your phone. Best of all, you don’t need to hire a team of developers for just one small change. The drag-and-drop interface and WYSIWYG editor make it as easy to update as the consumer apps you use at home.
Check out igloosoftware.com/pragmatic to get started. It’s free to use with up to 10 people.
