Choosing the right SharePoint communication product
In recent months many companies have made tactical adjustments at speed to engage a suddenly dispersed workforce. As that initial rush has passed, comms people and senior digital leaders should now be thinking strategically about their communication channels. For many, a new intranet will be part of that.
The intranet either is, or should be, an important part of your communication channels matrix. But, have recent events highlighted that perhaps yours isn’t performing as well as it should? Now is a good time to reflect and make plans to upgrade.
Choosing a new intranet
You need to understand the functional and non-functional requirements of your business, as well as what your users need (and want) from a new intranet. It will be a big piece of work and can take anything from a couple of months to a year to launch a new intranet. It sounds intimidating, but there are resources out there to support you.
We can help with the initial research and vendor selection phases through our SharePoint intranets in-a-box report. We’ve just published version 5.2 and it includes 55 products, each with their own unique approach to deploying an intranet on SharePoint. We have reviewed 33 of those products in depth, which gives you critical insights that you can’t get anywhere else, and without needing to sign up to loads of marketing lists.
Each product is passed through our eight scenarios, evaluated, and scored, meaning you can see which perform well in which areas. There are over 600 screenshots in the report, giving you a peek at each product. We provide helpful summary tables, so you can save time by quickly comparing strengths and scores, and include details of the non-functional features that your IT team will want to know.
If you buy the report today, you can scan read it, then share it along with your thoughts with your colleagues tomorrow. Start the conversation from an informed position – you will gain peace of mind knowing you have done as much research as possible to select the right solution.
