The Simpplr alternative for modern companies

What is Simpplr?

Simpplr is a social intranet software platform developed in 2014 by the US-based company Simpplr Inc. It’s intended as a hub where employees can engage and get encouraged to interact through sharing content, ideas and experiences, making calls, and polls on their personalized feeds – those features are also included in Simpplr’s mobile app. 

Although Simpplr connects employees and drives engagement, it lacks Happeo’s integration with a set of collaboration tools – exactly what the workforce needs to transform engagement into productivity. We’ve summarized and compared the main differences between Simpplr and Happeo – have a look at the list below.

Conclusion 1

Simpplr doesn't have a deep integration with Google Workspace

Simpplr integrates with Google Drive, but not with Google Workspace’s entire toolset. Missing out on the benefits of the full package can be inconvenient, especially if you’re aiming for seamless collaboration. Happeo’s deep integration with Google Workspace allows you to use all the tools, making collaboration flexible and content gathered in one place.

Conclusion 2

Simpplr's help site could be more explicit

Customers share that the information on Simpplr’s help site isn’t always helpful, as they miss how-to themed articles or video content that could help them solve their problem. To make your search for a solution fruitful, Happeo’s Help Center’s rich inventory has a step-by-step guide and videos on how to fix most issues that might arise.

Conclusion 3

Simpplr lacks a native calendar feature

A native calendar feature is an essential basic to any intranet, and certainly something that Simpplr’s competitors already have developed. In Simpplr’s case, it’s the feature that their customers are still looking forward to. Happeo’s deep Google Workspace integration makes good use of Google Calendar. You can check your colleagues’ schedules, book a meeting, or quickly join one via the Hangouts link.
