​Announcing the Release of Gimmal Intranet & Portals on Office 365 and SharePoint to Provide Faster Deployments and Increased Adoption of Digital Workplaces

Intranet & Portals enables rapid configuration of enterprise intranets, portals, and collaboration sites to deliver relevant and up-to-date information to employees and external users.


Houston, TX – March 8, 2016 - Gimmal, a leading provider of information management software that transforms Microsoft SharePoint and Office 365 into a full enterprise content management system, today announced the release of Gimmal Intranet & Portals. This new product will enable organizations to quickly and easily deploy new collaboration sites or refresh existing sites so that they better engage, inform, and connect employees and external users. Gimmal’s software helps control the costs associated with building and maintaining sites while improving consistency and governance across SharePoint environments.

Gimmal Intranet & Portals offers a complete platform with full support for on-premises SharePoint, Office 365 and Azure, as well as for hybrid implementations.

“Businesses are increasingly realizing the value of productive digital workplaces,” said David Quackenbush, Gimmal’s President. “When evaluating the state of their portals, collaboration sites, and enterprise intranets, many organizations find user adoption severely lacking. Adoption is low because sites supply outdated information, aren’t connected to other line of business solutions, and fail to engage users or effectively help them do their jobs. Gimmal is changing that by combining self-service features with centralized control and built-in governance.”

Gimmal Intranet & Portals enables technology professionals to:

  • Create or refresh an enterprise-wide intranet, departmental portals, and collaboration sites
  • Reduce deployment times from months to minutes without writing a single line of code
  • Support global and mobile workforces with sites that are engaging, intuitive, responsive, and deliver relevant, up-to-date information
  • Achieve organizational objectives to inform and connect the workforce while supporting optimum performance
  • Add new sites as needed with ease in a consistent and controlled fashion
  • Deploy full-featured, functional sites right out of the box
Configurable templates stand out as a distinctive benefit of Intranet & Portals, making it possible to implement sites that are ready-for-content on day one. These templates were developed as a result of years of experience building enterprise portals and collaboration sites for customers across a wide range of industries and for varying business contexts.
“Gimmal’s offering is unique because we are not creating one-off sites. Gimmal’s products are designed to quickly deploy sites that can be maintained with ease,” said Chris Warren, Gimmal’s Product Manager for Intranet & Portals. “Collaboration portals are only successful if they are used, so we developed features that allow users to easily load and find content.”
