Involv vs Teams

Easier. Faster. Sexier.

As there are some overlapping capabilities that are delivered by both Teams and a modern intranet, a question raised by many organizations is
“Do we still need an intranet?”, or in other words, “Can Teams deliver an intranet?”.

To help you answer this question, we have made this comparison between our Involv intranet and Microsoft Teams,
which you can base on to choose the best solution for your organization.

Conclusion 1:

Teams is a chat-based communication platform.

With Teams, you can chat, call, perform an online meeting or share a document with your colleague. Teams works perfectly in scenarios where you are working with a group of people on a given project.

Conclusion 2:

Teams doesn’t fulfill a one-stop platform.

Other than communication functions, Teams can’t fully perform as a one-stop shop where you can go to for top-down organization news, HR tools, DMS, forms and policies, etc. Involv intranet offers all the most requested features which are used and loved by everyone in the organization.

Conclusion 3:

Teams doesn’t represent your company brand.

Because the look customization is very limited in Teams, it doesn’t reflex your company brand and style. Involv intranet provides you with 3 visually appealing homepage templates which allows you to customize the colors, theme and logo to match your company brand.

Get the best from both worlds!

Don’t get us wrong, we LOVE Teams as well. We use it to collaborate on projects every day but it’s not the same as an intranet. We’re working on a Teams app that will bring your intranet directly in Teams.
