Connect employees & encourage organization wide collaboration
Strengthen your culture
Your culture begins with your people. ThoughtFarmer helps you build a culture of recognition, trust, and transparency allowing you to bring employees together around common goals or interests.
ThoughtFarmer’s intranet software provides employees with the tools and knowledge needed to get their job done quickly and efficiently, making for a happier, more engaged workforce.
Break down silos
Whether you have 50 employees or 50,000, silos can happen—especially when employees are remote. ThoughtFarmer’s intranet software allows dispersed staff to connect, collaborate, and communicate securely.
Improve employee communication across your organization. Our Intranet software puts critical knowledge at your employee’s fingertips, allowing them to deliver a consistent employee experience.
What our clients are saying
We’ve saved hundreds of person hours, just in the last year alone [and] there have been huge cost savings as well.
We wanted an open-intranet where every employee had a profile and the rights to add content. We wanted a simple wiki-style tool that made it easy (and fun!) to contribute and engage. ThoughtFarmer had it all.
We’ve come a long way in our cultural transformation over the past three years and Beacon continues to play a key role as one of our primary vehicles for providing transparent, timely, two-way communications. I still smile when I hear employees say ‘just check Beacon’.
Previously we had really struggled to get information centralized and get it out to people. But employees themselves grabbed hold of this tool.
Frequently asked questions
Global + local news
Clients love our news feature, because it keeps them updated on everything they want to know including company news, events, and employee updates.
Policies & procedures
Finding important documents shouldn’t be hard; so we’ve made it easy. Our clients often make a “How do I” section on their intranet where they can easily locate internal policies and procedures.
Our clients love that any document (think: word, excel, powerpoint etc.) can be opened and edited from within ThoughtFarmer.
Employees profiles, directory & org chart

Photo galleries for community events
Smile! From marketing images to staff events, we make photo galleries simple and beautiful.
Because employees aren’t always desk-based, our mobile intranet allows on-the-go employees to find everything they need—a colleague’s phone number, a news story, or important discussions.
Clients enjoy our search capabilities because it helps them find what they need, fast.
