We’re extremely proud of what our intranet platform has been able to do – not only for our own employees but for every employer who wants to create a sense of community for their employees. Ultimately, Simpplr aims to enable a more positive work environment by helping organizations create a culture of openness and care.

Since Simpplr’s beginnings, our design philosophy and build approach have always been centered around people and their experiences. This is just the beginning for us, and we believe we’re aligned with Forrester in understanding the growth of the industry and how our product vision aligns with the future. We can’t wait to share our broader employee experience vision soon.

The Forrester Wave™ Our Report Highlights

According to the report, “The intranet market has undergone a major reinvention over the last few years. New, cloud-native platforms have shattered the stereotype of static, clunky, internal portals. Since The Forrester Wave™: Intranet Platforms, Q2 2020, customer demand has decidedly shifted away from “build” to “buy.” Today intranets are software as a service (SaaS) apps and are designed for the communicators, designers, and authors who are responsible for creating relevant, tailored information for employees in an anywhere-work environment.
