Atlas, the best Digital Workplace and Intranet platform for Microsoft 365
Built for Microsoft 365, the Atlas Digital Workplace and Intranet platform enables better ways of working for the modern enterprise. With Atlas, your employees can find the knowledge, documents, information and tools they need - in seconds - allowing them to focus on doing their best work.
Some of the world's most recognised medium and large organisations trust Atlas to solve today's working problems; surfacing content and knowledge, and removing silos that hinder collaboration.
ClearBox view in one tweet:
“Atlas from @ClearPeople is a high-end add on for SharePoint & Teams that excels as a knowledge and information management tool. It will particularly appeal to document-centric industries such as law firms.”
Highlights from the ClearBox 2023 report:
Its primary differentiator is the way it can bring coherence across collaboration spaces and content that may be scattered over different Microsoft 365 tools.
Atlas is ahead of many with its out-of-the-box integration with Microsoft Viva.
"On the communication side, Atlas creates a highly targeted publishing experience for news, events and resources based on tags. The intranet component embeds well in Teams, and adds a friendlier menu than Viva Connections plus some attractive presentation web parts."
Of all the products we have seen ClearPeople have the most advanced vision for how Viva Topics can be leveraged effectively.
For companies looking to take a more structured approach to how they manage knowledge, govern collaboration spaces, and ultimately get more from their Microsoft 365 investment, Atlas offers some very valuable tools that set it apart from the competition.
Atlas customers were fulsome in their praise for the service they received. “Fantastic. 10/10 - just wish all suppliers were like ClearPeople”

Key benefits of Atlas Digital Workplace Platform:
Atlas provides one of the most comprehensive and capable platforms for supporting knowledge management processes on top of Microsoft 365.
The search- and metadata-driven approach is very versatile, and the ConneX governance and workspace provisioning tool is solidly implemented.
There are some attractive web parts for publishers, including In Focus, which enables users to subscribe to topics, and HoverPoint, which makes it easy to map hotspots to clickable images such as maps and plans.
People search is considerably improved over Microsoft’s offering, in particular the ability to search for experts by skills, location, and department etc.
