Interact intranet doesn't integrate deeply with Google Workspace
Interact Intranet integrates with some Google Workspace apps (Drive, Calendar, Tasks, and Forms), but it doesn’t have Happeo’s deep integration with the entire set of tools. To make collaboration seamless and efficient, Happeo integrates with Google’s productivity apps like slides, docs, sheets and more - making Happeo the best Interact Intranet alternative.
Interact intranet uses Forums instead of Channels
Rather than channel-based communication, Interact Intranet uses Forums for channeled communication. Users can’t make channels themselves. Happeo opts for the user-friendly structure of Channels, which can be created by anyone if you set user’s rights to be governed loosely. Channels are the place where employees share files, posts, comments, images and videos, and bond around different topics.
Interact intranet is a great solution for Microsoft users
It has better design, more flexibility, and more employee-friendly features than most Microsoft-based offerings. It’s time to roll-out is unknown, nor how easy it is to set-up and use as admins.
Interact intranet focuses on providing a lot of features
With such robust software, maintaining the functional capability of each feature can be a challenge. Reviews of Interact intranet report that user experience would be better with some core-functionality tweaks. Users are happy with the abundance of intranet features, and they’re looking forward to seeing them work optimally. At Happeo, we make it a priority to provide a fast loading intranet with an uninterrupted digital experience, so employees can make the most out of its collaboration capabilities.
Interact intranet's design could be more intuitive
The platform lacks a user-first design and according to reviews, creating a more intuitive interface is the direction that Interact intranet should be working on. Therefore Happeo is seen as the better Interact alternative: it has a clear structure and intuitive design. Loved by both admins and users, Happeo has a 77% standard adoption rate.
Interact intranet could have more customizable components
Interact intranet allows for some for some personalization, however, clients are still looking for more options. The answer: Happeo is fully customizable – your logo, colors, URL, email digest, or widgets – there are no limits. After all, recognizability is the first step to high adoption rates.
