…until you’re hit with the monthly bill.
The Cost of Using Igloo Intranet
Even for a small business, Igloo intranet can be pricey. Because they bill on a user-per-month system, starting at $12 per user per month, the cost of your intranet can really add up. For a small business of only 15 employees, Igloo would end up costing over $2100 per year, and that doesn’t include the cost of any of the additional applications or add-ons a small business would want to use to expand their intranet functionality. As the size of your business grows, so do your technical costs. Wouldn’t it be nice if your intranet’s costs could stay the same?
Oddly enough, many small businesses don’t realize that they may already be paying for an intranet solution. As times have changed, businesses have moved away from local installs of word processing and spreadsheet software programs. Companies are instead opting for cloud-based solutions. One of the most popular of these solutions is Microsoft Office 365 – so popular, in fact, that over 50,000 small business join Office 365 every month. Chances are, your company probably uses it too. If that’s the case, you’re already paying for one of the top intranet solutions available, and it’s been included in your Office 365 bundle the whole time!
That’s right, if you have Office 365 and are paying for Igloo intranet service – you’re paying too much!
