Noodle

As a customer service representative, it is always helpful to have different information sources when assisting customers. Noodle is our main additional source.

Pros

Noodle is easy to navigate. We use noodle for updates and to find information to help our customers. I never have any problems using Noodle to do this.

Cons

Currently, I do not have any dislikes about Noodle.

Positive experience!

I think our site helps highlight staff involvement. It's also an extra level of security & visibility on documents such as policies and procedures that need to be kept off of our public site but still easy to access.

Pros

I managed to create a useful site for our staff in less than 48 hours. It went up so fast and is incredibly easy to populate with content.

Cons

Sometimes certain things have a mind of their own... the home screen skews percentages of columns depending on what section I put in it... but I can't seem to figure out why... I also don't like that if I lock down editing for an area, users can't 'like' anything there... makes the like button sort of useless.

Noodle

The customer support was so helpful during our set up process. Anytime I needed anything, he answered emails within minutes. He's able to answer questions and resolve any issues right-of-way.

Pros

The desktop version is user-friendly and easy to navigate.

Cons

Doesn't have an app. The mobile versions isnt the most user-friendly.

Good value for money with Noodle. Does what it is meant to do without any unnecessary functionality.

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.

Centralized our intraoffice communication - buildout required time investment

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.

Great Product

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.

Pros

Cons

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

Great intranet site

Pros

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

Noodle has been our intranet platform for the past 2 years. We have left it due to several issues et

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.

Noodle helped to bring back life to an old outdated intranet site.

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.

Simple, Easy, Generic

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.

Very generic

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.

Physiotherapy Clinic

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.

Up and Running in No Time

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.

Easy to Use with Intuitive Features

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).
