Increasingly, companies are using intranet style apps to communicate with their workforce. Here is an overview of such solutions in Germany (unfortunately in German, perhaps run it through Google Translate - some of the referenced websites have English versions):
Start-ups are popping up right left and center to address this need. I am just wondering: Why the heck is Discourse not more present in this space? At least, this is my perception - maybe I am wrong. By my judgement, at least most of the functionality these apps/solutions are offering - for often very steep prices - can be met or even bettered by Discourse (perhaps + plugins).
If I am wrong, and Discourse is often used as a social communication platform in companies, are there any good cases out there that could be used to “sell” Discourse for such a purpose? Does anyone have any experiences to share?
