Why Igloo?

Why Igloo?

Igloo is your new digital workplace, stored in the cloud.

We're not a point solution. We're a platform for ideas.
We're a complete digital workplace in the cloud. We fit with your existing workflow and software toolkit, whether it's SharePoint or Office, Photoshop or Acrobat - and complement what you do with the social collaboration tools that you love, like wikis, blogs, and comments.

We're fast, we're easy to use and we're secure. And because Igloo is cloud-based, we're available everywhere, anytime, on any device with an internet connection.

[Igloo] was by far the strongest choice for us. The new platform is easier to use, not only for the company on the back-end, but also for our users on the front-end."

Three ways we make a difference


Different views for the different yous.

Content in context
When you need feedback, why post a document on a shared drive, email the path, and hope you CC'd in the right crowd. With Igloo, you can post a document in your team space, and notify users individually or based on groups, and keep the discussion in the context of that document - so if new team members join or get looped in, the conversation is there to get them up to speed.


Embrace the tools you already know
You already have tools you love to work with. We're not looking to replace them - we just want to enhance how you share the information you create.

Capture everything in one place
Why download here, comment there and notify somewhere else? Keep your documents, comments, versions and approvals all in one place. Everything you need to make a decision - right at your fingertips.

Team Space



Document Sharing

You'll love it
Igloo software is built around the social tools you use at home, but in a secure business context. So your learning curve goes down, but productivity goes up. And up.

It's document centric
Documents are at the heart of your business - whether it's a report or design, a plans or contract. You can follow a document's lifecycle: from idea to draft, versions to approvals, lock finals and track long-term updates.

Space for Me, We and Us
Share only with relevant channels, or choose which audiences you want to be a part of. You have a full personal dashboard, a team view, and the ability to see into your whole organization. Each piece of content is permissioned down to user and group levels.

It's easy to collaborate
Igloo software is entirely in the cloud, significantly reducing barriers to entry. You can be up and running in minutes.

Enterprise-ready, people-friendly.


Launch and learn
Get your team up and running quickly, and use the early feedback to shape how your digital workplace evolves. With the flexibility of Igloo, it becomes easy to configure any aspect of the site as your business needs change. Don't need a content application? Hide it. Want to change blogs to news? Just rename it. You can configure everything - from the layout and structure to the content that appears on a page.


Power to the People
A drag-and-drop interface and rich text editor mean that if you can create a Word document or personalize your Google search page, you can configure a space.

Ad hoc, but structured
Create spaces, groups or projects, without the need for IT approval, while still retaining the structure necessary to prevent a chaotic growth of information.

Social with control
Moderate some content areas, while leaving others open. Make some spaces private and some open. Set access permissions down to the individual folder or file.

Extend Igloo with prebuilt integrations for SalesForce and SharePoint. Or, use our REST-based API to link with other apps or even your own custom tools.

The Igloo advantage
Unlike typical collaboration platforms, Igloo is designed solely for the cloud. That means it works everywhere, on all platforms. And when we release a software update (every 90 days), you get the latest and greatest instantly. It's just a better way to do business.


An affordable alternative
It's software delivered as a service via the web, so there is nothing to install or maintain, and you don't have to deal with updates, patches or the maintenance of servers.

Use only what you need
With per user pricing, you only pay for what you use. Plus, your data is stored in an enterprise-grade data center from CenturyLink, a leader in managed hosting and infrastructure as a service.

Any device, anywhere
Igloo runs on any device with a web browser - so now you can work seamlessly in the office on your laptop, at the coffee shop on your iPad or on your smartphone in the airport.

Start small, grow big
It starts with a project team, department or business unit. As new groups of people come on board, they can be connected together in a single, integrated corporate network.
