  • What features does BONZAI provide out of the box that SharePoint doesn’t?

    BONZAI is designed to integrate beautifully with SharePoint. Our award-winning modern intranet delivers a number of features that you won’t find out of the box with SharePoint.

    It all starts with Bonzai GPS, which includes: 

    • Governance: We design a custom plan to help you maintain your intranet information. That means everything is in its place and easily findable with our innovative search.
    • Predictive Navigation: We structure your intranet so it’s tailored exactly to how your employees work. Your document management system will be organized so employees can instantly find just what they’re looking for.
    • Search: Never get frustrated looking for information again! Our type-ahead search gives you a powerful, user-friendly global search with predictive suggestions – all in one search box.

    In addition, Bonzai offers a robust selection of the features that every intranet needs,  including news, content authoring and targeting, social workplace and intranet design. These are just a few of the key offerings that are not supported by out-of-the-box SharePoint.

  • Who owns the data you put on your Bonzai Intranet?

  • How much technical skill is needed to maintain a Bonza Intraneti?

    No prior technology expertise is needed. We’ll bring you up to speed completely during onboarding. If you already have a working knowledge of SharePoint, that and the onboarding should be all you need to become completely self-sufficient in Bonzai. In order to take advantage of the innovative features that Bonzai Intranet offers, we do recommend that you assign an internal team to manage data governance, system support and maintenance. This helps ensure that your solution is always updated and well-maintained.

  • Can we turn off the social capabilities of Bonzai?

    Yes, you can turn off Bonzai’s social engagement tools if needed. This includes likes, comments and the employee marketplace.

  • Is Bonzai cloud-based or on-premises?

    For ease of use and simplicity of storage, Bonzai is deployed in the cloud. It integrates seamlessly with SharePoint or Office 365 to fit your infrastructure and operational requirements.

  • How does Bonzai meet the data and access security requirements of modern enterprises?

    BONZAI is designed with enterprise-level security in mind. Our expert infrastructure team works with you to ensure maximum data and access security. Security settings are also easily configurable on the front end with role-based user access and native version control options.


  • How does Bonzai pricing work?
