Ok, so here is our list of social intranet vendors (ie: competitors). Yes, we realize its a bit strange for a company to list out its competitors, but we wanted to provide a helpful resource to organizations looking to implement a social intranet. We realized during our own competitive research just how difficult it was to evaluate each possible intranet solution. There are dozens of vendors offering intranet solutions with social features. The ones below are a short list of the ones we consider worth looking into.

Think we missed one? Please let us know.

In short - assume the information on this page in inaccurate and out of date. We review each vendor quarterly and there can often be major pricing and product changes within that time. Please use the links provided to verify the information on each intranet vendors website before making any decisions. If you see a review that needs to be updated, please leave a comment or contact us here and we'll address it in a timely manner.

Also, note that some vendors have tiered pricing (ie: Silver, Gold, Platinum). In these cases, we always use the highest level of pricing in order to keep the comparison as even as possible.
