    Pros

    The best thing about this piece of software is the easiness to use. Has all the necessary functionally for a intranet site

    Cons

    As an intranet tool it does what it needs to do, only drawback is the outlook integration is not very good at this stage.

    Pros

    Secure and centralized our intraoffice communication. Because we use Noodle as the hub for policies, human resources, and training documents and videos, it took a lot of time and effort to get this running. The time invested wasn't due to the Noodle programming, but due to the large amount of information we needed to publish.

    Logging in and updating is simple. The layout is user friendly and customizable.

    Cons

    Internal messaging is only delivered if the employee is looking at the Noodle program. There is no desktop function that sends the message or an indicator to look at messages received unless you are in Noodle.

    Pros

    Noodle is very user-friendly and the cost is very inexpensive for the value you receive. Customer support is great.

    Cons

    The design isn't very high-end. The mobile aspect of this software needs improvement and messaging could use improvements as well.

    Its cheap, easy to use and no contract!! Its hard to find a program that does everything Noodle does in one place.

    Cons

    Wish it had a free trial before buying. I refer people but they want to "try before they buy". Which is understandable

    It is great to input information and the customer support has been amazing. The ability to input so many options and white label the intranet is outstanding

    Cons

    The only small issue I have is there are a few things to input for changes that were difficult but that being said it is updated so frequently that features come out often

    My teams have found huge benefits in Noodle from communicating with each other to communicating with our management and hiring teams.

    Pros

    Extremely easy to use and organize. The features are great in keeping various teams on the same page.

    Cons

    Wish the table function was easier to use. It's a bit clumsy to work with when formatting in a new page.

    Pros

    It looks nice on the surface and if you have the time to dedicate hours to polishing it administratively it could be a great intranet.

    Cons

    It's very frustrating at times to administrate. The admin gui is not user friendly or intuitive at all. We have been unable to get users to interact with either working on it or using it.

    Pros

    Noodle has a cloud based system that will allow you to access your website outside of your company's network. They have also integrated a Single Sign On (SSO) option for the cloud based users as wel. This makes it easier to login your intranet site if your company already is using a SSO software especially Windows Active Directory.

    The interface allows you to easily build pages and has a drag and drop feature that most people are familiar with. It also has features that will allow you to easily setup a photo gallery, create a poll, make and merge calendars, and create interactive forms. Using Noodle allowed our company to retain existing functionality from our old intranet site while incorporating new ones.

    Cons

    It would be nice if Noodle would allow you to connect to an external database or use an API widget in order to use existing custom built applications/import data. There are some features that are incorporated in the site (while useful) that are not intuitive to the end users that cannot be disabled.

    For smaller structure, this is good but I am not sure how it would work out on a big playing field.

    Pros

    If you are not a tech guru, it is okay because the simplicity is nice and capable for those who struggle. Tech support was great as well.

    Cons

    I would love for this to have Office available right from the get-go. The mobile version can be hit or miss.

    It's a more fun way for employees to interact than just via email.

    Pros

    It's easy for a person who doesn't have IT experience to setup and run. The layout is simple and most users have no issues finding things. The email notifications are handy too.

    Cons

    It looks very generic and unprofessional. You have to delete your cookies for profile updates to take place. The chat box doesn't have emojis, spell check, or allow you to have the chat up while navigating Noodle. It's just ok, overall.

    We used vialect/Noodle as our intranet platform for our UK physiotherapy clinic franchise - Sports Physio UK. The customer support with setting up the platform was excellent, and their tech team are always prompt to rectify any glitches or issues we come across. This platform has given our Team a place to collaborate (formally and informally), share information, disseminate news/updates within the team, and share documents/files. The great thing is, it is future proof for us and can grow with us and adapt to our evolving needs.

    Pros

    Customer and tech support. The features of the platform.

    Cons

    Can be a bit tricky getting some of the functionality working properly, but that is due to user skill level. Any issues, we contact the support team and they help us get it sorted.

    It is a pleasure recommend Noodle from Vialect. The product is incredibly easy to learn to use from a design perspective and practically intuitive for the standard user. With help from the Noodle help center we have managed to build and extensive, interactive and informative intranet that is relied upon within our organisation of 500 staff. Maintenance is easy as long as you have a good map in place for your content. We have delegated responsibility for content to section contributors thereby avoiding the need for extra resource to maintain the intranet. Further, content is written and maintained by the subject matter experts. At a fraction of the price of many other products but yet feature rich and with the best support I have ever experienced from a vendor, we highly recommend Noodle from Vialect.

    Pros

    Easy to use, low cost, high ROI, outstanding support, flexible, robust, secure and safe.

    Cons

    Less flexible in design to some of the high end product.

    Our organization has now evaluated many document management, corporate social networking, internal portal and content management systems. Keeping an eye out for ease of use and rich but simple feature set that met our requirements. Noodle was the perfect product for this and also at a price that easily fit into our budget. Additionally, their customer support, ability to adapt to our requirements and energetic attitude was very refreshing. We sent a short list of similar products to a test group of 15 users. The users unanimously voted Noodle as their preferred choice as a document management and internal social networking site.

    Pros

    Robust and Easy to Use Features
    Easily Deployed and Managed
    Modest System Requirements
    Ability to Install on Multiple Platforms w/ multiple database software options
    Does not require a high amount of user training
    Intuitive User Interface
    Easily Customized Look and Feel
    Easy to apply our company branding

    Cons

    There is no out of the box MS Office Integration. However, after speaking with sales and their technical teams we were able to determine a solution that would be included in a future release for integration with MS Office 2013.

    Does not appear to support NTLM so users are required to login, this makes it difficult to make company announcements that would appear on the users web browsers home page (forcing the user to login to see them).

    One of the Most Economical Intranet Options Available with Great Support

    My client was seeking an Intranet portal for a network of over 65 different offices across North America and Noodle was by far the most economical and most flexible platform on the market. One of the greatest strengths of Noodle is the permission levels available per user/group. Intranet applications in general are still relatively behind in terms of their usability and design, but Noodle does a great job of simplifying the Intranet but still includes many valuable tools and applications. In addition, the team at Noodle does an outstanding job of providing quick support and listening to opinions on future improvements. If you're looking for an easy-to-use, cost-effective platform for your intranet, Noodle is one of the most economical and flexible platforms out there. When Noodle works out of the box on mobile, i'll gladly give it a 5 star rating!

    Pros

    - Customer Support: The team at Noodle is quick to help out with support requests and issues
    - Permissions: The ability to have multiple permission levels per user or per group.
    - Searching/Filtering users : The People section on Noodle enables searching for users and custom fields.
    - Notify and Memo Manager Features: Great way to mass email all users or specific groups right from the Intranet site.
    - Portals: Portals have a lot of content features and styling options

    Cons

    - Lacks mobile responsiveness and isn't meant for mobile use quite yet
    - Scroll windows can sometimes cause confusion when adding members to groups or permissions
