It seamlessly integrates with other IT applications providing a single one-stop portal for business processes and information such as staff details, news and procedures. The core software comprises a sophisticated range of built-in applications and contains all the features you need for a powerful and flexible strategic intranet which promotes collaboration and communication.

Interact has been developed to take advantage of the latest technologies as used by websites like Facebook and Amazon.

The more the intranet is used and the more content is added the more powerful and effective it becomes. Powerful enterprise networking tools actively promote internal communication, collaboration, idea sharing and cross-organisation participation
