This week Six Colors is brought to you by Igloo, the intranet you’ll actually like.

Igloo’s intranet works on any mobile device - including the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus. They’ve built their entire intranet platform with responsive design, so you can do anything from reading a document, to sharing a photo of your lunch, to administrative tasks like managing your settings.

Igloo’s document preview engine is fully HTML5 compatible - so if your teammate uploads a Word, Excel, or even JavaScript file, you can read it on your device without having to download the content or use a native app. It saves you storage, and also makes sure your team is working on the same version of a document.

Even Igloo’s task management system, have been designed for speed and ease of use on your phone. You can quickly create a task in just a few taps, and quickly manage your task lists from wherever you are.

Best of all, because Igloo’s platform is so customizable, when you design your Igloo to look like your company’s brand, that design looks great and carries your brand onto every device. Make a change on desktop? It shows up on mobile - instantly.

It’s a fast and fantastic way to to create, share, and manage your work from wherever you choose to work.

If you’ve used any corporate intranets, like Sharepoint, you’ll know just how incredible this is.

Igloo is free to use with up to 10 people, and you can sign up instantly at
