About Us

The world is your workplace.

Work has always been social, from the telephone calls we make and meetings we attend to the conversations we hold around the water cooler. But when you consider the systems we use today (email, ECM, CRM, ERP), they border on anti-social and leave us feeling chained to our desks.

Igloo is a web-based platform for collaborating at work. It's a digital workplace that enables you to share files, find answers, solve problems, locate information and expertise and tap into the collective knowledge of your customers, partners and peers, virtually anywhere.

Igloo is a natural evolution for the way we work. And it makes us much more efficient, not by replacing the productivity tools we use today, but by optimizing the flow of information between people.

No more obstacles, no more barriers, no more silos.

Igloo is not your traditional enterprise software company. Everything we do is in the cloud.

That means we don't ship you a disk or give you a download link, and then forget about you. We handle the software and hardware, the maintenance and the nitty gritty.

We're in it for the long haul. And we're committed to providing the highest level of service and transparency to our customers.

Take me to your leaders.
