About the report
Clearbox Consulting’s comprehensive guide to turnkey SharePoint solutions is designed to accelerate purchasing decisions and help organisations make the right choice of solution, from SharePoint plug-ins to fully features intranet products such as Unily.

How is Unily different from the other 33?
A large proportion of products evaluated are named as “intranet accelerators” designed to improve user experience of SharePoint and Office 365 by offering templates with drag and drop functionality. Unily was designed for a different purpose, to provide a complete intranet platform to empower employees, which stands alone from Office 365 and SharePoint and simply integrates with the tools for the best user experience.
This independent architecture provides maximum flexibility for integration and customization, while offering optimum performance and content management for employees around the globe.
