The free intranet is a private tool within the iShade portal. It allows a firm to communicate with its employees by quickly and easily posting announcements, engaging in conversations, uploading resources and managing their internal calendar. It also allows member firms the ability to create private and public subgroups for additional collaboration and utility.

“We found that many accounting firms either don’t have an internal communication system or the intranet they are using is not serving their needs. We felt that offering this feature to our users would help them in their day-to-day operations. It is just one of the many reasons why joining the iShade community is proving to be so popular. We look forward to more of our member firms taking advantage of the free intranet in the coming months,” said Executive Director Lisa Benson.
