The 2024 ClearBox intranet report, released and free

The 2024 ClearBox intranet report, released and free

The 2024 edition of our Intranets and Employee Experience Platforms report is now available, entirely free to download. We’ve robustly reviewed leading intranet and internal communication products and platforms, and this new 2024 edition provides the very latest insights, advice, and scores.

The assessment scenarios and review structure have changed since the 2023 edition, so if you’ve downloaded that one you’ll want to download this one. This year we’ve also included some of the best employee mobile app products on the market, taking them through the same assessment as their desktop cousins.

The 862-page report reviews 34 of the best products on the market, and includes SharePoint with Viva in support. This will let you compare and contrast your options, so you can decide whether SharePoint truly is the best solution or whether you need something more. We’re confident our expert assessments will help you shortlist and select the best intranet, employee app, communication platform, or employee experience software for your organisation.

How the report will help you

We’ve reviewed intranet products since 2016 and we launched the first edition of our Intranets and Employee Experience Platforms report in 2022. In each report we’ve taken market leaders through their paces and helped readers make the right choices for their businesses. We’ve taken that experience, and the experience of working with scores of clients on their digital workplace projects, to create this new report that assesses some of the best intranet and associated communication products on the market.

Each vendor demonstrated to us how their software fulfils certain business scenarios. This is more than a list of features and functions; our scenarios are real-life business situations that products should meet head-on (such as internal communication needs, information finding, and general user experience).

We identified these scenarios after months of research into the products on the market, user needs, and business requirements. The scenarios are outlined in the report’s introduction and our reviewers used the framework to form each review.

We believe our report will give you the foundational information you need before you consider the right approach for your organisation. This will save you weeks of research, as well as provide details you simply can’t get from vendors’ websites, giving you the confidence to make the right decisions.

And for those who are interested in market trends and insights, the reviews and 71-page introduction are brimming with useful information.

What’s changed from V2 in 2023

Thousands of you downloaded the 2023 edition (thank you for your support!) and you will find that the 2024 edition is entirely different.

Following reader research, we’ve reduced the number of scenarios and updated them, plus changed the structure of the reviews so there are more screenshots than ever. We’ve also introduced a few new products this time too, both as full reviews with scores and as ‘product overview’ reviews.

If you have the 2023 edition I’d strongly encourage you to download this new edition so that you can read the most up-to-date information possible about the market. It’s our best edition yet!

Independent experts

We haven’t written the report alone, we’ve had help from people across the world of internal communications, digital workplaces, and intranets – all of them experts in their fields and excellent voices in our report.

    thank you for the report, a valuable and interesting read as we are planning to relaunch our intranet and introduce an employee app. At the same time I am truly surprised that your report does not include the Beekeeper app, Why is that? Beekeeper seems to be THE employee app that everyone is talking about in Switzerland.
