About Simple Intranet

We have been in the Intranet business since 2008 and have learned a lot in the past 10 years! Our three guiding principles:

  • Build a quality and feature rich product based on open-source technology
  • Listen to our customers and give them a voice in the product roadmap
  • Be passionate about providing world-class customer service


As of 2018, Simple Intranet has a over 3,000 clients in over 20 countries – all told, over a million users!  Our growth has only accelerated this past year with a new release and a hosted solution. More exciting news – the company moved its offices to West Palm Beach Florida (USA) in 2018 and has completely re-architected the core Simple Intranet product for enriched functionality and improved performance. We now offer a hosted intranet solution that is comparable to the leading intranet products in the market but at a fraction of the cost.

Our team of developers and support folks are completely dedicated to Simple Intranet staying the world’s number one intranet plug-in!
