Igloo Software earns Knowledge Management accolades; is named one of KMWorld’s Trend-Setting Products of 2016

KITCHENER, SEPTEMBER 7, 2016 – Igloo Software, the leading provider of cloud-based modern intranet solutions, has been announced as one of KMWorld’s Trend-Setting Products of 2016.

The prestigious annual award identifies software products that break new territory in helping organizations achieve their knowledge management goals. The honorees are announced in the September 2016 issue of KMWorld.

“These products are designed, developed and perfectly timed to fill a niche in the marketplace before users are even aware that such functionality and flexibility have been missing,” said KMWorld Editor Sandra Haimila. “Our judging panel agrees that such characteristics as usefulness, scalability and level of innovation are among the most valuable components that we consider when we annually select the KMWorld Trend-Setting Products.”

“We are honored to be included as one of the Trend-Setting products of 2016 by such a respected publication in the Knowledge Management space,” added Dan Latendre, CEO of Igloo Software. “At Igloo, we believe that knowledge should be treated as an in­ternal currency with structures in place to ensure that it’s managed wisely, so that companies aren’t losing any of it along the way.”

IDC reports that the aver­age worker wastes 2.3 hours per week searching for information. This can cost companies $7,000 per employee per year. Modern intranet solutions, like Igloo, create vital connections between people, information, and technology inside an organization allowing employees to get more work done. Knowledge management features such as directories, knowledge bases, and forums make it easy for companies to audit, organize, and share their collective knowledge.

A modern intranet brings content and conversations together in one place, promoting active and continuous knowledge sharing across all levels of an organization. A tool that has been traditionally perceived as an IT-sanctioned document store or link farm now represents an avenue for organizations to encourage the exchange of information and create a culture of collaboration where knowledge belongs to everyone.
