Intra-office communication is too important to be ignored. Telephones, email, text messaging all serve specific purposes but lack in features of a truly robust communication system. Telephones are redundant because you cannot keep copies of conversations; text messages easily get lost and emails are difficult to track beyond a certain point.
Intranets came in as a solution to undo the difficult part of maintaining a company's communication system up and running. With an intranet, offices can store documents safely, allow selective access to users for collaborative work, reduce paper work, save time lost in moving tons of papers between departments
Intranets have proved their mettle in easing the communication needs of offices to a large extent, but not without shortcomings still. Cloud-based intranet software is fast replacing in-premise intranets worldwide and businesses are already finding it a cost-effective solution viz-a-viz in-house intranet servers. Maintaining an in-house intranet server is now proving to be a drag on resources; especially for small and mid-size businesses that have a limited budget.
To use cloud-based intranet software, you don't have to make any investment on hardware or software; or periodically spend money on upgrading the software. This is taken care by the software providers, but there is still a catch – learning to use the software can still be tricky because there are still a lot of apps that users have to master to use it effectively. Does this mean that cloud-based intranet software is difficult to use? Not really – software makers like Hubfly offer intranet that is really easy to use.
