Igloo Puts Users in The Driver’s Seat with Revolutionary Digital Workplace Solution ‘Test-Drive’ Site

Igloo’s User Friendly Test-Drive Site Provides a Completely New ‘Try Before You Buy’ Experience for Its Full Portfolio of Industry Leading Digital Workplace Solutions

KITCHENER-WATERLOOJuly 20, 2017 – Igloo Software, the leading provider of digital workplace solutions, today officially launched its new Test-Drive site, which allows organizations to start discovering the possibilities of their next digital workplace by enabling them to explore a pre-configured workplace and play with Igloo’s solutions along with key features and 3rd party integrations without having to build something themselves. Test-Drive can be accessed by everyone here:

“Test-Drive provides organizations with instant access to all of Igloo’s digital workplace solutions where they can discover, play and learn more,” explains Dan Latendre, Founder & CEO, Igloo Software. “Experiencing and understanding how the solutions will fit into their business during the buying process is critical and provides organizations with added assurance that they’re choosing the right digital workplace partner.”

Test-Drive elevates the pre-purchase software experience by providing a fully functional area, complete with pre-configured digital workplace solutions, sample content, and the ability to fully interact with features and other members.

“This means Test-Drive members get a much truer sense of the user experience, without all of the time traditionally associated with trial software that provides a blank slate and expects users to build, configure and populate before being able to understand the user experience,” added Latendre.  “It’s just another way Igloo is continuing to push the boundaries and make an inspiring digital workplace that improves communication, collaboration, knowledge sharing, and culture, and have this be more accessible to organizations globally.”

Two Ways to Experience Igloo Digital Workplace Solutions
The launch of Test-Drive adds a second way for organizations to experience Igloo; Try-It, which has been available for years, and now Test-Drive.

The Try-It option: This is ideal for organizations who are looking for a basic digital workplace solution that is ready to use – out of the box. This option provides the build and maintain experience enabling users to configure widgets, invite users, and understand some of the administration capabilities of Igloo. Try-It includes:

  • Simple digital workplace layout & configuration.
  • Page layouts for a corporate hub, knowledge center, teams area, social zone and a people directory.
  • 10 GB of storage & 5 spaces for team collaboration.
  • Access to the site manager, theme editor & help section for configuring & branding your digital workplace.

The Test-Drive option: This is ideal for organizations who are in the early stages of their digital workplace journey. Within Test-Drive, users are able to:

  • Take a self-guided tour of the Igloo digital workplace platform.
  • Experience the full portfolio of Igloo digital workplace solutions first hand, without needing to worry about building or configuring the solutions first.
  • Play with features like blogs, comments, calendars, file sharing, forums, tasks, wiki pages and more, all in a live environment.
  • Try out Igloo’s integrations with leading apps like Box, Slack, Office 365, and Google.
  • Ask questions and engage with other Test-Drive members.
