DiggSpace, a platform for the rapid construction of Intranets integrated with Microsoft 365, is now available on Microsoft AppSource, an online cloud marketplace providing tailored line-of-business solutions.
With an agile setup, the goal is to allow companies to accelerate their digital transformation and build their Modern and Digital Workplace in a simple and fast way, ensuring greater productivity, especially in remote or hybrid work.
The new app allows simple and intuitive management and customization, giving total autonomy even to non-technical users. Initially, it will include the most used functionalities such as articles, news, quick links, favorite apps, intranet channels and the Dashboard365 for monitoring personal workload, but the goal is to gradually make all the functionalities of the platform available for direct access via Microsoft Teams, making the creation and updating of content much faster, easier and more dynamic.
As in the web version of the platform, customers will have communication channels with the product team to suggest improvements, which will allow having an app that always meets the main needs of its users.
How a SaaS platform is scalable and can grow along with companies
By allowing various types of integrations, like with Microsoft applications or other custom-made ones, it becomes a digital atrium to aggregate all the tools needed for the day-to-day life of each employee which reduces the time spent jumping between applications or even "searching" for them when they are not easily accessible.
"DiggSpace has become the platform of choice for creating a digital workplace in leading companies such as Trivalor, Hoti Hoteis, SportTV, Ceetrus and Medway/MSC. We wanted to bring the best of all ideas received and it was a natural step to make the platform available in the communication channel more present in the daily lives of users: Microsoft Teams. The continuous evolution of the product and its increasing adaptation to the real needs of customers will always be a priority", highlights Gustavo Leitão, Head of Diggspace.
“Through Microsoft AppSource, customers around the world can easily find tailored line-of-business partner solutions that work with the products they already use”, said Toby Bowers, General Manager, Business Applications Group, Microsoft Corp. “We’re happy to welcome DiggSpace to the growing AppSource ecosystem”.
DiggSpace's pricing model is based on a monthly subscription and varies according to the number of users. For example, for 100 users it is 4.75€ per user/month, if there are 1000 users it drops to 1.5€. The simulation can be done here.
