SharePoint intranets in-a-box V2

SharePoint intranets in-a-box report booklet coverOur comprehensive guide to turn-key SharePoint solutions will accelerate your purchasing decision and ensure you make the right choice. It is full of practical advice on the tools that can give you a quick-start to an intranet. Is Unily better than Rise? Is LiveTiles right for you? What are Wizdom’s strengths and weaknesses?

We review 26 of the solutions on offer, using eight common scenarios based on our years of experience in SharePoint consulting. Because we focus on the business side of SharePoint and don’t sell any products, we are able to give you a genuinely independent evaluation.

The report contains over 250 pages, including screenshots, scenario-based evaluations, and our honest opinion. You won’t get this kind of information just from vendor websites or anywhere else. To top it off, we have comparison tables across the board to help you identify options to match your requirements, budget and location.

“…a tremendously valuable and well-written report. It provides a clear, objective and unbiased assessment of a range of options for implementing world class intranets…”

Andrew Wright, intranet manager and founder of the Worldwide Intranet Challenge, via LinkedIn

Why buy the report?

  • It will save you time. We spent over 200 hours doing the research, so the cost of the report will be quickly recovered by saving you weeks of effort.
  • Our comprehensive list means you can be certain that you’ve done due diligence on the options, and can be confident in your choice.
  • You’ll make a better decision – we know what to ask because we bring world-class experience in intranets and internal comms. Most of the reviewers have worked as intranet managers, and between them have over 70 years in the industry, working with Citi, Unilever, Diageo, Aviva, Exxon Mobil, Rio Tinto, Standard Chartered, Sony, and many others.
  • Our opinions are genuinely independent. We accept no fees for inclusion from vendors, have no re-seller relationships or sponsorship, and we don’t sell any software products ourselves.
  • We tell you the bad as well as the good. We base our scores on business scenarios rather than a list of features so we aren’t easily impressed or swayed by a vendor’s claim to be unique. As an extra check, each review was checked by three people.
  • It’s the only report of its kind and covers vendors from USA, UK, Australia, Denmark, Netherlands, Canada, Sweden and Vietnam. Did we mention there are 26 products in all? That’s a lot!

Reviews of the report

“This report really helped me shortlist the vendors to speak to. It saved me at least 4 weeks of studying the market. If you are looking for a ‘buy not build’ solution, read this report first.”

— Malou Wezemael, Digital Workplace Manager at EDF Luminus, Belgium

“If you are in the position of looking at an intranet in a box product to purchase, I would highly recommend investing in this report to save you the pain later on.”

Jeremy Thake, Senior Product (Office 365) Marketing Manager, Microsoft, via Medium

“ClearBox’s report is wide-reaching, easy to read and provides a solid foundation upon which to compare solutions.”

“…undoubtedly a valuable asset going into 2017, and one which I think is worth investing in.”

Kaya Ismail, business software journalist, via CMSWire

“I found this research to be relevant, easy to read and very useful…”

“…clear, concise and easy to read research that helps me focus, or discount some vendors at an early stage are a great help.”

“…this research will help you narrow your focus, and with 26 SharePoint based products … it may introduce you to a vendor and a product you did not previously know of.”

Jed Cawthorne, Director of Business Technology Strategy and Knowledge Management at BMO Financial Group, via LinkedIn

“A superb achievement in both scope and quality.”

“This is a report that just shouts ‘Read Me!’”

“Each vendor is profiled in a well structured format together with an assessment of its product that could only have been carried out by a team that had substantial experience in SharePoint technology and implementation together with a deep understanding of what users expect an intranet to be able to deliver. This is immediately evident from the way in which eight use-case scenarios are used as the basis for the assessment.”

Martin White, author of ‘The intranet Management Handbook’ and ‘Enterprise Search’, of Intranet Focus

“…would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who is thinking it’s about time to upgrade, refurbish, make-over or even completely re-design their SharePoint intranet.”

Andrew Wright, intranet manager and founder of the Worldwide Intranet Challenge, via LinkedIn
