Igloo pride themselves on being, "an Intranet you'll actually like", and it's easy to see why.

With its headquarters in Ontario, Canada, Igloo is a widely successful web-based platform for collaborating at work. The platform powers over 4,000 global collaboration sites in over 80 countries around the world.

Igloo is all about improving productivity in the work space. It allows you to communicate and collaborate faster and easier via built-in apps which include blogs, calendars, file sharing, forums, micro-blogs and wikis. 

The platform is fully cloud-based and can be easily customized, from branding options to interface arrangement. 

Flexible Corporate Communication

Igloo enables you and your team to communicate in a number of ways, all from the same digital space.

On top of sharing files and Built-in forums allow you to use familiar tools like up-voting, @replies and marking comments as answers. Additionally, traditional blogging and micro-blogging make up other examples where team members can communicate quickly and easily.
