Springboard compared to Other Solutions

Springboard design philosophy

Springboard is designed as a package that adds value to Google's own Google sites offering. 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 comprehensive way of sharing files

    • An automatic way of generating org chart

The Steege Springboard intranet solution addresses these and adds lots of value on top new features being added 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 a platform 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.

Springboard General

Can we use Springboard for an Extranet?

Yes, extranet linked sites are possible.

How does data security work on Springboard?

All your sensitive user data remains within your own Google tenant and is not passed through to us or our systems. Unlike other systems available from third-party market places we install our toolset on your environment rather than making you come to our environment 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 you work with Google Partners or Agencies?

Yes! If you are a Google Cloud Partner we will happily discuss reselling options for all of our products.
