What is Solar?

Solar is a new breed, pre-built, digital workplace toolkit which drives increased employee engagement and improved workplace productivity.

Unlike expensive custom solutions, Solar’s search, communications, and team collaboration tools combine simply and seamlessly on a single user-friendly platform. Built for Office 365, Solar’s modular approach means that you can tailor your toolkit and be ready for rollout in as little as four weeks.

  • A happier, more engaged workforce
  • Increased productivity
  • Better leverage of your investment in Office 365
  • Local product, local support
Find Less search, more find.

Communicate We’re on the same page.

Solar’s communications features enable you to share important information, gain feedback and provide social opportunities for your workforce – wherever they may be.

Collaborate Share documents easily.

Solar’s user-friendly interface puts the right tools at employees’ fingertips, which encourages increased use and greater collaboration. With Solar, training, tips and demos are also simply a click away.
