Appspace is the intranet of choice for Microsoft users. Here’s what analysts say.

An intranet is the gold standard for solving workplace communication and collaboration challenges. But with so many options out there, separating the sparkle from the substance can feel overwhelming. That is, unless you’re a Microsoft shop. Because there’s one intranet that’s fully integrated with Microsoft: Appspace Intranet.

All-in on Microsoft? So are we. Appspace Intranet is specifically designed for organizations that have invested in Microsoft and don’t want to build their own intranet solution.

Appspace has been named a Niche Player in the Gartner® Magic Quadrant for Intranet Packaged Solutions. 

We’re proud to have carved a niche as a game-changer in the intranet space – but what does this all mean for you? What makes Appspace Intranet so well-suited to organizations that rely on Microsoft? 

Let’s dive in. 

Designed for Microsoft users

Appspace is a secure and reliable solution that connects the dots between scattered Microsoft tools and features. Since Appspace Intranet is designed specifically for Microsoft users, it integrates seamlessly with Microsoft 365. 

  • It’s built on SharePoint, so it resides right within your Microsoft environment, creating a cohesive experience.
  • With Appspace, you get a streamlined interface that brings together essential Microsoft apps and tools like Teams and Outlook.
  • When it comes to SharePoint, organizations usually have four choices: using it as it is, investing in custom development solutions, settling for an out-of-the-box intranet with loose integration, or going for a purpose-built solution that enhances the user experience and adoption, specifically tailored for SharePoint.

Appspace offers one other key advantage that makes it stand out from other intranet providers: it doesn’t store any of your data. Instead, your sensitive information is stored securely inside your own Microsoft environment. This is one of the main reasons we’re trusted by some of the world’s largest banks and government organizations with the strictest security requirements.

Simple, user friendly, and ready to go

One key differentiator of our intranet is its exceptional usability. Designed with corporate communications in mind, it’s an out-of-the-box solution that doesn’t need extensive customization.

More than an intranet (no, really, we’re not just saying that)

Our intranet is just one of the solutions that make up our full workplace experience platform. Appspace is designed to meet your needs across the entire workplace, combining workplace communications solutions (intranet, employee app, digital signage) and workplace management solutions (space reservation, visitor management, and wayfinding).

Gartner reports:

  • It also scores well for bringing the physical and digital workplaces together with ready integration to digital signage and workplace experience applications.

Are you a large organization seeking a robust solution for communication and collaboration? Look no further.

Appspace caters primarily to large organizations (1000+ employees), ranging from the finance and manufacturing sectors to logistics and government agencies. Our comprehensive solution offers a seamless blend of asynchronous and synchronous collaboration capabilities, keeping employees connected regardless of where they are in the world.

See how Glencore, one of the world’s largest global diversified natural resource companies, relies on Appspace to connect its workforce of 130,000+ employees.

What the other analysts are saying
