Refreshed and updated – SharePoint intranets report 5.1

5.1 Freshly updated - written on a background and showing the report cover.

Refreshed and updated – SharePoint intranets report 5.1

Our evergreen report reaches version 5.1

``The ClearBox SharePoint Intranets in-a-Box report is an invaluable resource that arms any organization thinking about launching or revamping their own digital workplace, with the market intelligence to navigate an otherwise complex IaaS landscape with ease, simplicity, and confidence. A must read for any leader that is inspired to provide their employees the best digital tools to do their best work.”

Mario Fantozzi, CPA CA, CPA (Illinois) Strategic Finance and Digital Workplace Leader

It’s only been three months since we published our massive report, but we’re now working through the year to review intranet products for SharePoint. Every quarter, we update the report with new product reviews, and to our previous reviews if vendors have told us about major changes to their solution.

If you buy version 5.1 now, you’ll automatically receive a further three editions in 2020 at no extra cost.

We have already sent this new edition to everyone who has V5.0.

What’s new in this edition

As always, our reviews are entirely vendor-neutral (nobody pays to be in the report; we don’t sell any products or accept referral fees). They are based on in-depth live demonstrations against the criteria we set, and go through rigorous fact-checking.

Version 5.1 of our report contains:

Our Intranet Choices*

Three new products, bringing the total covered to 55 (31 in-depth and 24 catalogued)

Eight updated in-depth reviews (including our review of SharePoint Online itself)

619 pages, an increase of 33 from V5.0 in November.

*Our ClearBox Intranet Choices were announced in January and you can find out more about what impressed us by reading our full report. While the highlighted products offer standout capabilities in their categories, we encourage you to consider your priorities against the many different products on the market.

Why buy the report

We’ve developed our review approach over the years. Rather than allowing vendors to show their product’s features, we challenge vendors to demonstrate how their intranet product achieves business objectives in eight scenarios of our design.

Time and due diligence

We spend over 800 hours doing the research so you don’t have to, which means the cost of the report will be quickly recovered by saving you weeks of effort. Everyone who gives us feedback on their use of our report says it saves them a significant number of weeks. Additionally, the number of products catalogued means you can be certain that you’ve done due diligence around the market options and can be confident in your choice.

The good, the bad and the ugly (decision making)

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. Each review was checked by three people, and the scores were balanced as necessary.

You’ll make a better decision – we know what to ask vendors as we bring world-class intranet and internal comms experience to the process. Most of our reviewers have worked as intranet managers, and between them have over 87 years in the industry, working with Citi, Unilever, Diageo, Aviva, Exxon Mobil, Rio Tinto, Standard Chartered, Sony, and many others.

Independent, unique advice

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. It’s also the only report of its kind and covers vendors from USA, UK, Australia, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Canada, Sweden, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, India, Poland, and Vietnam.

What’s next

For now, you can buy the report as a PDF for immediate download by debit / credit card or PayPal.

Version 5.2 is due to be published in May 2020 and we expect to see even more new products and updated content in that edition. So, if you buy version 5.1 now you will automatically receive a link to download the next edition when it’s released.

If you’re a vendor and would like to hear more about how to be involved in our reports, please get in touch over email – sharepoint@clearbox.co.uk – I’ll be happy to hear from you.
