Linchpin + Confluence. A company intranet worthy of the 21st century

An intranet improves communication, integrates and gives a sense of belonging. Apart from purely practical advantages, it has a number of assets of a social nature (“social intranet” is also one of the keywords searched in Google). If you are looking for an intranet/extranet that will be functional, intuitive, advanced in terms of functionality and friendly from a visual point of view, we recommend a combination of the Confluence system by Atlassian and Linchpin by Seibert Media.

Atlassian changes, migration, solutions in Jira

Whether or not to implement an intranet/extranet solution (in short: an intranet is a closed portal, functioning within an organisation, while an extranet is a portal for the exchange of information between business partners; one system can perform both roles) does not require much to think about. There are two possible solutions: stay in the e-mail loop, call a lot of meetings and store all the necessary files on disk or move the lion’s share of communication and materials to a shared system. Confluence + Linchpin is one of the best tools of its kind available.

Social intranet for companies

Confluence by Atlassian is a solution that makes it easy for millions of users around the world to work every day. The system has a lot of functionalities, thanks to which it is possible to create specific spaces, pages and content. You can read more about it in the following text: Confluence – opinions and most important functionalities from a user’s perspective.

Linchpin, on the other hand, is an application full of additional functionalities, which makes an existing intranet able to offer a lot more possibilities. Combining both applications creates a competitive intranet for the most rooted giants, such as Microsoft SharePoint, while meeting the expectations and needs of users accustomed to functioning on social media.

Corporate design

A style compatible with a company’s brand book

Linchpin, in contrast to the basic version of Confluence, offers more possibilities when it comes to the appearance of the intranet itself. A company can set its own logo and adjust the colour scheme to its own visual identity. This allows employees to immediately know that they are navigating within a company space. The application’s interface is friendly, clear and modern. An example is presented below:

User profile – more possibilities

Linchpin developers have put a lot of emphasis on personalisation, in terms of the main message board (news feed), the ability to create and share content within the system, as well as the configuration of the user profile itself.

An intranet that engages

 News feed

Users can see two types of content: company news displayed according to the employee’s profile settings (e.g. based on data such as language, location, office, department, supervisor, teams and groups to which they belong, etc.) and individual news feeds from other users (as well as their own) – similarly to social networking sites.



Personal news feed, Linchpin


Creating individual news feeds inevitably involves the need to comment, share your achievements or inform about any important or interesting events. Employee engagement ensures that the intranet functions dynamically and becomes a place of discussion, plans and company life. Content exchange takes place in real time.




Microblog in Linchpin


An important, interesting and useful function is the creation of events with the possibility of inviting selected users to participate in them. Access and visibility can be adjusted with restrictions.

Mobile App
