In a comparison of 30 leading systems, GO Intranet has been recognized as an easy-to-use platform for organizations invested in Microsoft 365 and praised for its modern design and impressive features for corporate and internal communicators, including:
- Flexible news management that can adapt to centralized or distributed news publishing, a news centre with extensive search and filtering options, and a rich aggregated news web part that pulls content from different sources, including Teams and Yammer.
- Community and engagement features, like a user-submitted photo gallery, an events template for team building or other group activities, and a recognition feature that allows recognized employees to print out a physical certificate.
- A digital asset portal and PowerPoint plug-in that brings corporate branding rules fully to life.
The report notes that many organizations have invested in the Microsoft suite, with Microsoft Teams reaching 270 million users in 2022. GO Intranet stands out as a recommended platform for organizations invested in Microsoft 365 who want to stay fully aligned with the roadmap, as it leverages other products in the Microsoft 365 ecosystem while addressing gaps in Microsoft’s intranet offering.
“We're passionate about making GO the absolutely best platform for organizations that want alignment with Microsoft’s roadmap,” explains Ryan Bender, GO product manager at Habanero. “We build GO using Microsoft’s best practices for Microsoft 365 design and development including the Fluent UI design system, the SharePoint Framework (SPFx), the Microsoft Graph and Microsoft’s PnP framework. In addition, GO is deployed into each client’s tenant and all content is stored within the client’s SharePoint Online instance, ensuring their data is safe and secure and under their control.”
GO also earned a high score for its analytics, an area that was identified as a gap in most other intranet products. With GO, clients gain access to dashboards that provide metrics about usage adoption, interaction with the content, news, and search, while content engagement analytics give internal communicators in-depth analysis of reach, engagement and sentiment.
