ClearBox ‘Intranet Choices’ Winners 2024

Ourstanding employee communications and intranet software. Seven winning systems, independently assessed.

ClearBox ‘Intranet Choices’ Winners 2024

With so many intranet products to choose from it can be hard to know where to start. From the reviews featured in our free report we have compiled an annual list of ‘ClearBox Choices’.

This year we took the highest scoring products in the scenarios as a start point, but also factored in price point, customer feedback and the overall capabilities of each product. The idea of the ‘Choices’ badge is to highlight products that would make a good start point for your own shortlist.

Note though that we don’t say that the Choices are the ‘best’ products. There is no single ‘best’ platform; there is only a product that is the best match for your needs, and you may need to read about several scenarios to understand what that means for you. We encourage potential buyers to do the groundwork on requirements and strategy first, so that you know exactly what you need rather than be swayed by impressive features.

Blink.

Blink

Blink is a frontline-focused, mobile-first product that understands its target audience perfectly. Organisations of any size that have frontline workers will find something to like about Blink. It offers a good companion to desktop platforms too, meaning desk workers and frontline workers can be served by products that best suit their needs without clashing.
