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

You may have heard that slogan before, but think about it for a minute. Most of us are forced to use old-school work intranets, made before the real rise of social media and smart apps. Igloo does what intranet apps do, of course—share news, organize files, coordinate calendars, and manage projects—and does it all in one place. But with Igloo, you won’t pull your hair out every time you realize you’ve got to go on the Intranet to look something up.

And with Igloo, you don’t have to be stuck at your desk to do your work. Your favorite intranet is also mobile. You can manage your task list from your laptop during a meeting, share status update from your phone and access the latest version of a file from home. (And who doesn’t like to work in their pajamas?)

Everything is now mobile—work should be too. You shouldn’t need to get out of bed and go start up your computer just to make sure something’s okay so you can go to sleep without worrying that you forgot a key part of that crucial document.

Check out Igloo’s free intranet templates, and start collaborating right away!
