Internal Communications

Make your internal communications irresistible.

Too many communications get lost in one-way emails. Communifire activates three-way communications. Leaders to teams. Teams to leaders. And teams to each other. Most. Engaging. Intranet software. Ever.

  • Internal Communications Software
  • 1. Leaders to Employees

    Internal communication starts at the top. Pull up your tailored homepage and instantly share thoughts on new corporate strategy, comment on announcements, or congratulate a team on a successful project.

  • 2. Employees to Leaders

    Transparency from the top sets the stage for a culture of empowered employees. With clear direction they can confidently tackle their projects. And they know they have a channel to reach back up with feedback, suggestions and ideas.

  • 3. Employees to Each Other

    When employees work in an environment of transparency and trust they willingly share information, opinions and resources with their colleagues. Tap into the brain trust of your organization through a robust platform that makes sharing the best of themselves easy.

  • Announcements and updates

    Post announcements and updates.

    Increase transparency in your organization by keeping everyone in the know. Communifire's internal communication tools make it easy for you to publish news, announcements, and updates.

    Target specific groups

    Target specific groups.

    Target your message to specific groups, spaces, or departments. Everyone gets only the information relevant to them and everyone knows what's going on.

    Required reading

    Make sure they've read it.

    "Required Reading" allows you to flag your content as mandatory reading. Employees click the "I have read this" button and you can track it through analytics.

  • Check in on stats and sentiment.

    Communifire lets everyone measure the reach, sentiment, and overall impact of your communications. At a glance you can see how many people read your announcement, who viewed your blog post, and which coworkers confirmed their required reading.

    Internal communications analytics

    Daily and weekly digest emails.

    Opt-in or out of daily and weekly activity emails. They're sent at the end of each day detailing the latest activity that happened within all of your spaces.

    Open a dialog

    Open a dialog.

    Give your employees a voice and a channel for dialog with comments, "like" buttons, and rating controls.

Knowledge Management

Manage, publish, and search content.

Does content exist if no one can find it? Now every document and conversation is findable through a simple search or intuitive navigation, unless you make it private. No more version control worries, either. It's built-in. Share blog posts, articles, intranet wiki pages, photos, videos, or any other type of content you may have.

  • Intranet Content Management
  • Intranet content types

    All the content types you've come to love. And expect.

    Communifire is designed to handle all kinds of content types for you, from articles, blogs, and wiki pages, to photos, videos, ideas, and discussions.

    Publishing is simple, anyone can do it because Communifire makes it easy.

    Content publishing tools

    Publishing tools that every employee can use.

    Communifire makes it easy to create and manage content. Publish, share and collaborate like never before with modern, easy-to-use intranet content management tools. Make better decisions thanks to centralized knowledge. And empower employees by giving them the information they need in the format they want.

    Content expiration controls

    Set expiration dates to review and archive old content.

    An intranet is only as good as the content you make available to your employees. High quality, up-to-date content is key. Communifire lets you set expiration dates on your content, so you know when it requires a review or update.

    Content rating controls

    Let the best content shine with rating controls.

    Cut through the clutter and let people vote on the best content.

    Communifire provides an intuitive and easy-to-use interface to rate content. This allows the best content to stand out, making it easy to find valuable resources, information, and knowledge.

  • Intranet search

    Search, sort, and filter on your own terms.

    Everything is just a click away. The search remembers everything, so you don't have to. It's super smart, because it knows what you're allowed to find and helps you find it, instantly. Communifire automatically indexes all of the content you publish, including wall posts, comments, and the contents of any PDF, Microsoft Office & Open Office documents.

    Use the extensive filter to target your search by space and location, by content type, and tags. You can even create your own search filters by using managed tags.

    Communifire's search is powered by the extremely rich, flexible, and powerful Elastic full-text search toolkit, which can index practically any type of text document and retrieve it for you in milliseconds.

    Content workflows

    Review and approve content before its published.

    You can set up a sequence of approvals or workflows that content must pass through before it's visible.

    Empower an employee to write the corporate blog, but have it checked over by someone in a particular role before making it public. Or allow anyone to create a space, but have it go through an approval process before it goes live.

    You can set up as many approval steps as you need in your Workflows, which are defined uniquely by content type and for each space, giving you maximum flexibility.

    Tags and hashtags

    Add a layer of context to your content with tags and #hashtags.

    Communifire intranet software will happily organize all your content for you. But if you want to give it a hand, you can take advantage of the powerful custom Tag Manager.

    All of the content in Communifire, from blogs and wikis to photos and discussions, can be tagged with keywords. You can also add tags to comments and wall posts using the #hashtag.

    Tags give your content and conversations context, and makes everything easier to find when searching, while at the same time, connecting you to similar information on the same topic.

    Communifire knows what you're thinking as you type, it suggests popular tags for your content ... and you can even create your own Managed Tag Groups, too.

Your intranet should help support your company's growth, not slow it down.

Frequently asked questions.

An intranet software platform is a network where employees can create content, communicate, collaborate, get stuff done, and develop the company culture.

Modern intranet platforms encompass a wide array of functions: employee directory and personal profiles, internal communications, knowledge management, document management, real-time communication, employee recognition and collaboration. By using these tools, companies report improving employee engagement and building a stronger company culture.

The cost of an intranet can range from $6,000 annually to $100,000 or more per year, based on the number of employees in your organization. Successful organizations report that intranets ultimately pay for themselves through higher productivity, more connected employees, and reducing time finding information.

Creating a modern intranet is streamlined and can take less than a few weeks by using packaged intranet solutions that are specifically built to provide business solutions that are common to all types of companies. Alternatively, organizations can build an intranet internally with developer teams.

The best intranet platform is one that provides the most common functions for modern businesses. These are easy to start and get up and running, and most importantly they have the flexibility to grow with your organization over time. A vendor that provides onboarding services and ongoing support is also important for your success.
