Our Intranet Customers

We've been enormously privileged to have worked with some amazing organisations over the past 2 decades. Here are just a few, and their thoughts on their Orchidnet Intranet.

“I just want to say a big thank you to the Orchid Software team for all their continued hard work. In the four years I've been at ITV, their Orchidnet product has improved dramatically and is becoming a really modern and forward thinking intranet solution.Getting intranets right is tricky.They have to be so many different things to so many people.

At ITV, we've found that simplicity is the key. Orchidnet is flexible and supports that simplicity, and although we don't use it conventionally, it works for us. The social functionality that came in at the start of 2014 has really taken off and we're excited to release the next wave of improvements at the start of 2015.

The team is very helpful, and it really works to have one point of contact to work with. They’re receptive to suggestions and improvements to the system and the fact that they're a small company means they can be agile, quick to react and fix things.”

"Launching Orchidnet has really improved our communications and engagement throughout the business from our restaurant teams to head office we now have clear channels of communication and two-way feedback through applications like discussion forums and polls...We had a lot of fun with the team from Orchid, throughout the sales process, the implementation and the training and I’ve had lots of comments from others (here at Pizza Express) on how much they enjoy working with you all and how easy it is to just get things done"

“I love the fact that almost everything I can think of is already included in Orchid Software's comprehensive package, and they are also prepared to develop and change based on my own requirements; the combination of off-the-shelf and bespoke development is unique. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Orchidnet for a cutting-edge and stylish intranet.”

“Orchidnet helps me to concentrate on producing intranet content instead of intranet development. We save a lot of time and money by using this product, plus technical support is always attentive and, just as importantly, immediate. I can always talk directly with their highly informed and very friendly technical staff without having to go through support or sales, helping me to resolve issues without delay.”

“I cannot recommend Orchidnet and the team at Orchidsoft highly enough to anyone looking for a simply brilliant intranet solution that is a delight to set up, administer and maintain. The only organisations I would not recommend it to would be our direct competitors - only because we want to keep this fantastic system to ourselves!”
