Swisscom and Igloo Software Partner to Bring Cloud Intranets to Europe

Igloo Software, a cloud intranet provider, today announced a strategic partnership and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement with Switzerland’s largest telecommunications provider, Swisscom, to private-label its social intranet solution.

Under the terms of the agreement, Swisscom has the non-exclusive right to host and distribute Igloo in Switzerland, Germany, and Italy. Through its state-of-the-art hosting facility in Switzerland and dedicated services team, customers have access to a wealth of locally-based product knowledge and technical support to suit their requirements.

Igloo’s cloud intranet platform is designed to enable complete control over the apps you use, and the information architecture of the intranet, which in turn affects the overall look and feel. For end customers, it means a self-customizable solution that makes it easy to have a collaborative experience that fits how you work; without the need to hire a team of solution architects and developers. For partners, it means access to a white-label platform to build, deploy, and manage customized solutions.

Swisscom has launched the cloud intranet solution under the trademark Dynamic Intranet.
