    Igloo is an intranet you'll actually like.

    Reviewed 6 years ago

    Edu- Vision 2020 is a small not-for-profit organization whose goal is to provide a computer based educational solution "school in a box" to primary teachers and their students who live in remote communities around the world. Igloo is a cost effective, budget friendly, collaboration solution for us - we are 10 to 15 people geographically dispersed.

    Pros

    Igloo is “up and open” always, no matter the time or the time zone. Team members can collaborate and work on projects together, communicate in real time, and solve problems quickly and easily, even if they’re located on the other side of the world from one another and in different time zones. Streamline and organize - better work flow and less time spent of juggling multiple applications in different...

    Cons

    Hoping they include "the ability to communicate and have face time" with our team within your own space in the near future.

    Vendor response

    Thank you very much for this wonderful review of our product. We are glad to hear you are enjoying your Igloo experience. As for the ability to communicate and FaceTime with your team, while we do not offer videochats, you can most definitely set up "microblogs" (or dedicated social newsfeed) per team space where members of the same team can interact with each other. These feeds also allow for rich media (pictures, embedded videos, links, etc.). Hope this helps. Feel free to contact us for more information or to get help setting it up.

    Evaluation of Igloo

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    I routinely use Igloo to view company announcements that are broadcast across multiple sites within our Intranet, and I also use it to access and upload files that are used across multiple departments within our organization.

    Pros

    It typically doesn't require many steps to perform the most common operations. It is also helpful that Igloo supports a variety of file types.

    Cons

    Some of this comes with working with the application I realize, but I wish you could find a way to make versioning more transparent. I recently received some helpful instruction from a fellow employee about uploading a more recent version of a document without having to delete the prior document and running the risk of messing up the path/location of the document (important because other departments link to that document from their own Igloo pages). After right-clicking, I realized how obvious the step was, but I wish there had been a way to show this on the page; I'll keep working with Igloo on this.

    Where is it?

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    I am excited about the idea of this site and use it daily but I am sure that there are many features that I could be utilizing more than the few I use currently.

    Pros

    The availability of information from all departments for our company.

    Cons

    There are no ntaifications when new posts are added for the different departments. I am also frustrated with the search feature and the non-existant date/time stamps. When researching past posts, I try to do keyward searches but nothing populates to suit my purpose. Also, when scrolling to "view more" I find it inconvenient notto see the actual date a post was made but rather "2 weeks ago" or "13 days ago". I am not liking the fact that I have to hunt through the different

    The most user friendly intranet you could ever ask for!

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    As someone who switched from SharePoint to Igloo, I was AMAZED by how user friendly it was. Not only for administrators, but for our employees using the intranet as well. Have a file you need to move? No problem. Need to edit the file but don't have time to re-download the latest version? Easy! Igloo makes collaboration on an intranet fun, easy and stress free...what more could you ask for?

    Pros

    We have a large department that continually collaborates on certain files and folders in Igloo, so the fact that we can reserve or archive old material or versions is extremely helpful. I also really enjoy the fact that you can edit a document in word, powerpoint, or excel without the hassle of downloading a new version; you can simply open a document and save in one motion.

    Cons

    As easy as it is to use, sometimes it is too simple. Would like it to be more complex when designing pages, but it still looks great.

    Best platform for building a team portal!

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    We are so thankful for Igloo helping us to create our staff portal! It's revolutionized how we conduct global interview events and how we resource multiple locations across the nation.

    Pros

    The personal consulting from Igloo and customization were key to helping our organization scale our intranet/portal. The app is super simple to use, and integrates our global calendars, events planning tools, and other resources so perfectly for our fast-paced environment!

    Cons

    The people directory feature is not quite as nimble as I imagined it'd be for an organization of 700+ employees. We have a somewhat unique structure and it's been challenging to figure out how to look up teams, leaders and locations effectively. It would also be great to be able to add contact cards directly to my mobile device from the directory feature.

    Fantastic Intrant Platform

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Excellent from sales through to implementation and support.

    Pros

    Igloo comes ready out of the box for you to use it. It contains the basic tools for you to get an intranet up and running quickly. The product contains "solutions" that you can plug in for many common business functions like Employee Onboarding, Company News, Department Site, Project Sites. There is no technical complexity to getting the software up and running, its all about communication and change management within your organization.

    Cons

    There isn't much not to like about this product. It deploys quickly and easily. If anything I would say that they could build out the integrations a bit more.

    The Billtrust Igloo "Trusty" Experience

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    Our executive team had doubts that we could roll out a much needed knowledge management tool that came packaged within an Intranet system effectively. They were all pleasantly surprised at how smooth it went and how quickly we were able to meet our go-live targets.

    Pros

    Very easy to manage and maintain. The ease of use helps to win buy in from your users. 95% of our company is up and running with uploads, postings, blogs etc.

    Cons

    There are certain limitations to the software that makes it necessary for a more time consuming work -around. Igloo is working hard utilizing their Client Success resources to implement enhancements to address these limitations.

    It really is an Intranet tool we like!

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    We've been using Igloo software for a little over a year now and it continues to amaze me how well it connects your company. All the different teams are able to collaborate and be kept in the loop about events taking place in all locations and departments across the company. The best part is that it is easy to manage and maintain by all members of the community. Love this tool.

    Pros

    Ability for all users in the community to maintain their own spaces.

    Cons

    Would like to see some future enhancements in the searching capability and other little areas of functionality.

    Happy with our new intranet

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    Igloo has enabled us to create a more dynamic and user-friendly intranet experience for our employees. The customer experience team have been a great support and wealth of knowledge.

    Pros

    The widgets are easy to use and there seem to be a steady flow of enhancements from Igloo

    Cons

    Other than the knowledge base and FAQs, there doesn't seem to be a comprehensive "how to" guide. It would be great if there were videos explaining some of the more complicated features.

    Cool Functionality and Collaboration tool

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    I'm in Igloo everyday and it has made my job in Compliance easier to track policy read and signoff and task follow through.

    Pros

    Ease of file upload. I like the broadcast functionality. Task workflow is good too at the document level.

    Cons

    I wish the viewing document box was bigger. I usually do download or edit document just to view the document in a larger size. I know you can hover over the date a document was uploaded for details of date and time. I have many documents saved and frequently I like to search by the most recent date and time to find the document quicker rather than the alphabetic view.

    A good platform for managing projects and handling team collaboration

    Reviewed a year ago

    Igloo was a good service for us as a small company, and is great for any start-up looking to streamline their collaborative processes.

    Pros

    Igloo is a simple, clean web based interface for project management and internal communication and collaboration. It offers a straight-forward approach to managing tasks and deliverables compared to other bloated services.

    Cons

    The last time I used Igloo, it could do with some additional project milestone and deliverable management features such as individual task assignment and progress updates.

    Easy to use intranet solution! Loved to be able to get all of our useful information in one place

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    Became more organized and moved information quicker to allow my team to be more efficient

    Pros

    allowed our team to gather useful information in one place, which we could search for later if needed. No longer using individual documentation and moving between platforms.

    Cons

    so far I have not run into any cons. I really enjoy the way this functions and how it has helped my department. Maybe some of the setup was difficult at first, so be prepared for a slight learning curve.

    This is a great help on our duties. The feature that you can edit a document on MS office is a really great perk. This is a very easy to use software that we employees are able to utilize.

    A solid intranet service for companies

    Reviewed 3 years ago
    Pros

    - Very easy to configure and deploy for your company - Users can maintain their own personal sites/information - Simple interface to add and modify information

    Cons

    - Not a fault of the software, but we had trouble with user buy-in that resulted in a slow ramp up process - User resistance was due in part to no comprehensive tutorial on how to navigate and use Igloo.

    A beautiful looking intranet software, but hard to set up

    Reviewed 3 years ago
    Pros

    Igloo has everything - blogs, feeds, instant messaging, groups...etc. It really is full featured and can be customized anyway that works for your organization. Igloo also looks fantastic. Even right out of the box, the software shines and has a very new look and feel.

    Cons

    Igloo is very hard to set up and you need to pay for a higher tier of service to really get hands-on help. Since it's so exceptionally customizable, it's hard to (1) determine the best way to set it up and (2) actually set it up.

    Great Enterprise tool

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    I was the executive who was tasked with sourcing an enterprise KM tool. Igloo offers that and so much more the with the configurable intranet.

    Pros

    Deployed with very little support from our IT team. Business was able to stand this up very quickly. Fast adoption by employees. Need only a small team to administer it.

    Cons

    Does not integrate with gmail. Limited sales force integration.

    Service makes all the difference

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    After exploring three intranet providers, we chose Igloo because the people who helped us through the process were helpful, professional and truly cared about our needs as an organization. They were the only software providers to take the time to ask about our specific needs (we're a small organization) and tailor the sales demo based on those needs.

    Pros

    We are in the implementation phase but so far it's extremely user-friendly and the features are easily adjusted based on size and scope of project.

    I have had limited time using the product. So far I find uploading of files to be easy. Some of my colleagues say that they have trouble finding things. But I am not sure if that is because of your product or due to the way items are organized on the site. Time will tell once we are fully integrated.
