Amazing support and great adaptability

Pros

I love that as a 'non-tech' person, I was able to rebrand our intranet with the help of our graphic designer (she has a great eye for what colours to use). I had to reference support blogs a few times, but there wasn't anything I didn't feel comfortable doing. I also really like the support that is available. They get back to you very fast and help work issues out. And honestly, most of my issues were that I wanted to something different, not that an issue with the software. We were able to successfully rebrand our intranet. I like the ability to create different applications and that you can be pretty creative if you put your mind to it. We created a "shout out" app and didn't need to do anything special. It was as simple as adding certain fields to an app and adjusting the layout. Once you start to use the software a bit more, you realize most of the applications are the same base.

Cons

Although the simplicity is great, when it comes to the theme design, there are some items connected together that I wish weren't for example, if you change a colour of a title it could also change the colour in the mega menu. My designer also wanted more ability to change icons around, without having to do that for coding. A little more ability to customize would be nice. The theme editor was also confusing at first and I had to some trial and error to figure out what items were affected. The other annoying thing is that if you want to move files from one app to another or into a new site, you have to download everything and re-upload. I found the multi-upload feature hard to use too, so I ended up adding most files one by one. Moving 200 + files that way is very time-consuming, although worth it in the end!

Great Intranet Value

Very good experience from date of first working with IC 8+ years ago to the present time.

Pros

Company responsiveness to business needs and system's ability to meet our intranet requirements.

Needs a better way to test updates before applying to production environment.

Reasons for Choosing IC Source

IC completely met our needs for significantly smaller investment.

Best in class support

The platform allows us to make a rich and dynamic repository of information for our team members. The tech support is also top notch (which is rare for most companies today), and allows us to be nimble in taking care of our team member's requests when they want to leverage new features in the site.

Pros

The software does have several capabilities and workflows that allow it to be more dynamic that a static intranet website, plus the integration with active directory makes it a snap to get employees enrolled into it. Also the tech support is fantastic, with willingness to help with questions, issues, and upgrades.

Cons

The version upgrades can be a little tricky if you get too far behind.

Intranet Connections is a useful corporate communications tool.

Good communications tool. Electronic forms are nice!

Pros

As a corporation, we have been using Intranet Connections for a few years now. We do not use it to anywhere near its full potential but we have found it a useful communications tool.

Cons

It would be nice if the main page could scroll through the newest content highlights. The interface can be a bit clunky. For major updates it would be nice if there was a better installer. I find it a bit too manual.

IC Source upgrade to V15

Our experience has been good dealing with the support group and getting quick answers to our questions. The intranet software is reliable.

Pros

The software is relatively easy to use, and the tutorials are good. Tech support very responsive and helpful during the upgrade process.

Cons

The Active Directory sync doesn't always seem to work as it should.
