SharePoint is Mircrosoft's internet product and many companies are familiar with it because it comes with their company software package. While powerful, we find that unless there is a super administrator that is in charge of maintaining the intranet, it is hard to get others in the company involved because there is a big learning curve. Often times IT gets burdened with updating the intranet and everyone knows that IT always has plenty to do! ikno makes the maintenance of your intranet horizontal across all departments of the company.
Companies that use SharePoint for their document storage can still link to documents within SharePoint and can use ikno as their communication interface.
