Simpplr Feature Reviews

Shari McAneney

Super easy to manage SalesForce Intranet!

2019-08-27

We are able to create a beautiful and easy to manage intranet that our teams can access from anywhere on any device!

Pros

It makes it easy to administer as I am already familiar with SFDC and the app management is very user friendly. The mobile app is also very easy to set-up and our team can have access to all the content and contacts on the go.

Cons

I wish that some of the reporting functionality and analytics can only be accessed by the administrator using SalesForce functionality and isn’t in the UI for the team to run reports in the app itself.

Easy to Manage

2019-11-20

We have better version control and Sites have allowed us to separate content in a way that makes it easy for users to navigate.

Pros

It's very easy to use given the drag and drop features.

Cons

The analytics fell a little short when we first adopted Simpplr, but recent releases have hugely improved upon the feature.

Great intranet for connecting everyone at work

2019-04-16

We use Simpplr as our intranet to improve team communications, company-wide news, onboarding resources, and other documentation.

Pros

Simpplr allows for easy coordination of content upload/management. We’ve had little need for technical help, but when we have, the team was responsive and quickly solved our challenges.

Cons

You can install Simpplr as an app to the CRM Salesforce instance, if you do that, some of your Sales/Service content surface ups to the Simpplr interface. Will recommend you get an independent org just for Simpplr.

Best Intranet I have used!

2019-08-14

This Intranet helped me feel like I was a part of a community from Day 1. Everything I needed to know was in there, and I got to know more about everyone in my team thanks to their profile page. I check my Feed every day!

Pros

The interface feels very modern and as easy to use as my favorite social networks. The search engine was a major help as I got started.

Cons

I just wish IT setup access to all of my apps from the launchpad within the interface.

Just What We Needed

2020-11-03

Extremely positive. Great implementation team, and a great product that is getting better with every release.

Pros

Simpplr has the perfect mix of features and configurability without being overwhelming. It's easy to train employees to manage and create their own content.

Cons

Every once in a while you have to dip into the Salesforce back-end for user management which is less easy to navigate.

Intuitive and Engaging

2020-10-27

To drive engagement, we used Simpplr in place of an event management application.

Pros

Our teammates LOVE the mobile app, and the push notifications we send alerting them to important information.

Cons

Nothing. It's great. The consistent improvements address any concerns.

A cornerstone of our technological ecosystem

2020-04-24

Overall, I couldn't Simpplr enough. One of the most important facets of a product for me is responsiveness to customer needs. These guys have always provided fast, thoughtful responses to our inquiries. They even go above and beyond the product itself and serve as a thought partner on knowledge dissemination and internal communication strategies for the org at large.

Pros

Simpplr's knowledge management features make it a trivial task to create and disseminate documentation on core processes in a way that's very accessible for end users.

Cons

In the future I would love the ability to do more customization of pages with custom HTML, CSS, and JS. That said, Simpplr has a steady and robust roadmap for new features, so I'm excited to see what's next!

Our Company Hub

2019-10-21

Now we have one place to go with one search across various repositories.

Pros

Simpplr’s intranet, branded the Hub, is a great place to find up to date documents and stay informed on company news.

Cons

I wish more of the company could align on this single employee portal. It’s great to have one place for our critical information.

User friendly platform that promotes org-wide communication and knowledge management

2020-04-09

Simpplr solved this with it's organized intranet sites and tagging features that help our staff search for and quickly find what they need.

Pros

Simpplr is very user friendly with a clean interface. I manage multiple sites and it's easy to get a site up and running and add content.

Cons

I just wish you could clone already created pages to use them as a starting place for new pages.

Simply Outperforms Anything Else -- Employees Love it!

2019-08-28

It is the one channel everyone tunes into for the latest company news, "one-truth" reports and data, fun information about fellow teammates, and so much more.

Pros

The ability to garner over 20+ insights, encourage comments and feedback, and provide a mobile experience is priceless.

Cons

Updates are super easy and the technology continues to improve.

Simpplr is Simple

2020-11-30

Overall Simpplr has been a great experience from first contact to implementation to launch. I expect that while we continue to build out our intranet that there will be more great things to come.

Pros

Anyone can use it, which makes management of the intranet easy as we delegate information to specific departments and let them control their own sites and information without the hassle of a bottleneck.

Cons

There are a couple small glitches with the system that still haven't been worked out. For example, administrators see duplicate sites. There were some problems with the events calendar, and we're hoping to see some new features in the next couple months.

Powerful tool that easy to use.

2020-06-18

I am impressed with the support Simpplr provides. If I have a technical question I can expect to hear a response in less than 24 hours. They release new features each quarter and are receptive to feedback.

Pros

It is an all-in-one solution that allows for collaboration and sharing of business information.

Cons

At this time there is not a native calendar feature available.

The org chart and user friendly search feature allows for everyone to be involved and collaborate as a whole team.

Pros

The new org chart and bio feature really connects the whole company.

Cons

There has been slow adoption with a few Accounting employees, but that is more of an us issue.

'Simple' to implement and great to use

2019-11-20

Simpplr has always been approachable during the onboarding phase and very helpful in the implementation phase. We are confident of getting it right due to their support

Pros

I like how easy it was to understand the operating model and to design the intranet to suit multiple departments and functions.

Cons

I would like some more control over limiting some features to admins only and not to site managers - like the ability to create unlisted sites

Beautiful, elegant turnkey modern intranet solution

2019-08-13

Simpplr provided excellent guidance and support throughout the onboarding process and post-implementation. The customer success team is always available to help whenever we need it. Besides the high-quality product, Simpplr provides extensive industry research and thought leadership to position customers for success.

Pros

Simpplr's high quality visuals, page layouts and ease of use.

Cons

Reliance on Salesforce 'Files' system does create some limitations for document sharing, but this has not been a major issue.

Fantastic UX and implementation experience

2021-01-14

I would highly recommend Simpplr for someone who is focused on search capabilities that integrate with SharePoint and has a very social culture.

Pros

Resources and implementation team keep you on track with ideas, integrations to Office 365 actually work as intended, technical support team always available to troubleshoot.

Cons

MS teams integration is 1 way and a couple of minor bugs but are being fixed with new releases.

Great tool for the workforce of today.

2020-08-24

We needed a tool for a distributed workforce that would help bring people and content together.

Pros

Ease of use, analytics, search and speed at which users can be successful with the tool and end user adoption.

Cons

We have had a couple of key integrations that were not available when we deployed but these have been addressed in quarterly releases since we launched.

Fast, Easy, Intuitive Deployment

2020-06-19

We could not be happier with the choice we made to select and deploy Simpplr.

Pros

We had a very short timeline of 6 weeks to design, create and deploy our new Intranet site.

Cons

The only downside to the tool is the limited functionality of the page creation.

Wonderful way to connect our company together!

2019-08-27

We needed a way to share company information that was visual, easy to access and curated what is most important to each person so they can always stay caught up.

Pros

It’s easy to create and manage content in a way that is far more visual and engaging than other systems. It integrates with our other systems and the integration with Box.com makes it simple to share information without duplication.

Cons

We use the newsletter feature a lot.
