"Everything I Was Looking For"
What do you like best about Interact?
I spent weeks researching and reviewing intranet options, and Interact was easily the best option I found. Interact is simple to use but has a robust amount of features available. This made it easy for someone like me who doesn't have a background in web design to create a valuable and aesthetically appealing product for our organization. I also love that it integrates with Microsoft 365 so I don't have to worry about creating or deleting accounts - it's all done behind the scenes. I recently recommended Interact to a friend who was interested in intranets for his own organization. I told him we went with Interact over SharePoint for two main reasons. First, SharePoint would require more research and resources to create the kind of result we were looking for - and even then, it wouldn't have as many features available as Interact. Second, even after customization, SharePoint felt like a Microsoft product with our logo pasted on top, while our Interact site feels like our organization's brand from top to bottom. I also shared how impressed I was at Interact's creation process. I had multiple people, including strategists and IT support spend hours with me to make sure I felt comfortable with Interact and that our site was thoroughly planned and executed before we launched. Even after launch, I've always felt like there's been someone from the Interact team who is available and invested in our intranet's success.
What do you dislike about Interact?
Our biggest internal complaints about our intranet have more to do with things outside of Interact (e.g. Microsoft 365 and internal buy-in), so for me to think of things I dislike I have to be very nitpicky. One thing I've struggled with is finding the answer I'm looking for in the community support. My issue is either not listed or the information is dated, so I usually end up going directly to a support person to help and they're always quick to respond.
What problems is Interact solving and how is that benefiting you?
One of the main reasons our organization was interested in an intranet is because we have more than 350 employees at 20 different locations. This made it difficult for us to have consistent branding and communication with our staff. We use our Interact intranet to share news and updates, house important documents, and make it easier to contact other team members though the directory.
