What is an Independent Intranet?
There are several kinds of intranet platforms, making it difficult for some organizations to choose which one to implement.

Independent intranets have built-in tools and features that don’t depend on any platform like Google or Microsoft. Some examples of independent intranet platforms are Unily, Interact, and LumApps. Many organizations are impressed with the features and products of independent intranets because they help improve internal communication and collaboration among team members.
The downsides of using independent intranets are costly, challenging to use, unreliable when synchronising data from your workspace platform, and implementation takes too much time.
Luckily, you have the alternative to use Steegle which runs on Google Sites. Although Google-based intranets are not independent intranets, Steegle has developed unique tools that make a Google-based intranet functional like an independent intranet.
Building Powerful Intranets with Steegle
Excellent User Experience
Google Sites only offer 6 basic themes at the moment. Because of this, many organizations turn away from using Google Sites in building their intranets. That’s why we came up with a solution. Steegle offers tailored and flexible branding and an excellent user experience across devices. We have a variety of out-of-the-box templates for your Google Sites intranet. Whilst, with some independent intranet platforms, you need to stick to a standard template, leaving you little room for customization.

People Directory and Org Charts
The people directory is the heart and an essential part of your company intranet. A people directory stores the name, contact information, department, and job title of employees in the organization. It may also include much more interesting feels to make your Internet into a people database. For example, you can include:
Sector specific qualifications
Hobbies and interests

Employee Service Tools
Another important feature of an intranet is having employee service tools such as forms, employee recognition, training, and a virtual suggestion box. With the help of our unique tools, your Google Sites intranet can have these features just like in any independent intranet.
