Springboard compared to Other Solutions
Springboard design philosophy
Springboard is designed as a package that adds value to Google Sites. Out of the box Google Sites does not offer these key features that Steegle Springboard provides:
An announcement or news tool
An employee directory
A searchable and sortable display of files and folders
An automatic way of generating org chart
The Steege Springboard intranet solution addresses these and adds lots of value on top of new features being released all the time.
Since we build your Springboard intranet on Google Sites this keeps things simple and familiar, like administration, security and single sign on.
How does Springboard compare with Happeo?
Happeo / Universe is an intranet solution that integrates with Google Workspace. We find these key differences:
it requires your intranet curation and management team to learn the system
it removes data from your Google Workspace into its own data repositories
it is more expensive
We can better customize Springboard to your own look and feel than proprietary systems.
Springboard offers a more comprehensive and powerful organisational directory and org chart features.
Why is Springboard needed if you have Google Sites?
Google Sites is an easy-to-use platform, mobile device friendly, resilient and scalable. Is is no especially purposed as an intranet or employee experience platform however. Google Sites lacks some of the powerful functionality for that purpose. With over 10 years' experience on Google Sites, Steegle has developed a toolset which brings the platform to life as an intranet. Steegle Springboard Intranet Solution bundles these products to give a simple, one-price solution.
How does Springboard compare with Lumapps?
Lumapps is a powerful platform and intranet solution that integrates with Google Workspace. You will see that:
an steeper learning curve for your intranet management and employee communication team to learn how to use LumApps
your personally identifiable data is copied to LumApps' own data repositories
higher total cost of ownership
Springboard does not offer the community features of Lumapps - See Springboard design philosophy on why we take this approach
Do you need an intranet on Google Workspace?
Google Workspace is a powerful collaborative platform but without a solution like Steegle Springboard it does not easily offer a central place for people to find information.
Our philosophy is that an intranet can act like a virtual reception desk to help you navigate the sea of organisational knowledge. This is more important than ever in hybrid, remote-working or distributed working environments. It's a great place for new joiners and seasoned employees to get "watercooler" news snippets and forms and processes alike.
Springboard vs Papyrs, Simpplr, Thoughtfamer etc
Papyrs, Simpplr, Thoughtfamer (and other similar systems) do not deeply integrated with Google Workspace and can, in the longer term, be more expensive.
Can we use Springboard for an Extranet?
Yes, extranet linked sites are possible but generally need authentication.
How does data security work on Springboard?
All your sensitive user data remains within your own Google Workspace and is not passed to us or through our systems. Unlike other third-party systems available from the Google Workspace Marketplace we install our toolset on your environment rather than you granting permission for our environment to access your data, that way you're always protected.
Do you offer a roadmap for Springboard?
New developments and products are being added to the Steegle Springboard intranet solution all the time.
Do all user need a paid for Google Workspace account?
Springboard Intranet is secured by the Google Accounts authentication system. Businesses can apply for Cloud Identity Free accounts to access Google Sites without needing to pay for a Google Workspace licence. If you use Cloud Identity Free accounts these users can appear in the automatic org charts as well as gaining access to the intranet. The free approach can be very useful in operations like workshops, catering organisations or hospitality settings where frontline users do not need an expensive full Google workspace account.
