The Trust for Public Land connects its employees with Simpplr

About The Trust for Public Land

The Trust for Public Land is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to create parks and protect land for people, ensuring healthy, livable communities for generations to come.

The Trust for Public Land has been connecting communities to the outdoors and to each other since 1972. Today, millions of Americans live within a 10-minute walk of a park or natural area they helped create, and countless more visit every year.

The Challenge

With approximately 400 employees across 30 offices in the U.S., The Trust for Public Land needed to better connect its geographically dispersed employees and help them find the information they needed to do their work every day.

The organization’s 15-year-old intranet was no longer meeting employees’ needs. Employees found the old intranet so hard to use and its content so outdated, that they reverted to inefficient email threads to track down important information. In addition, the old intranet lacked collaborative and social features to help connect colleagues across geographical locations and departments.

In looking for a modern intranet to help address these issues, The Trust for Public Land began by interviewing staff to understand how they hoped to use their new intranet.

After evaluating 8 vendors, The Trust for Public Land selected Simpplr because of (i) its ease of use and breadth of features, (ii) strong integration with Salesforce, and (iii) low total cost of ownership, which was especially important due to resource constraints.
