What Our Customers Are Saying


Internal Communications Manager

“I want to thank you all personally for the tremendous effort that you’ve put into our new intranet. I know there’s a few things still to do but the feedback generally here is incredibly positive.”


Operations Procedures and Training Specialist

“The addition of search hints and the weighting of document titles has allowed us to guide site users to the most relevant information for the most common search terms.”


Intranet & Digital Workplace Advisor

“We found that – from both a user and business point-of-view – combining social features and core process support on one platform is clearly superior to trying to integrate separate pure-play social and case management platforms.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between Quaive and Plone Intranet?

“Quaive” is the brand name for the latest code base. It is driven by customer projects and thus has the latest features, is tuned for performance and well polished – but it is not necessarily generic enough for everybody. We consider it necessary to allow some time for new features to mature before we include them in the Community Edition – which is then called “Plone Intranet”.

Also, there are some add ons – mainly interesting for the enterprise sector – which we only offer for Quaive at the moment. Read more on this in the behind the scenes blog post.

What underlying technologies does the Quaive software use?

We use a mix of proven, secure, scalable Open Source technologies:

  • Python – a programming language that lets us work quickly and integrate systems effectively.
  • Plone CMS – a stable and mature web and document content management system technology.
  • Apache Solr – an enterprise grade search engine.
  • Piwik – the leading open-source analytics platform.
  • Open LDAP – an open source implementation of the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol.

Where can I download this Open Source Software?

You can find the source code of the community edition of Quaive on Github as Plone Intranet.

The source code of the more advanced enterprise edition is only available to clients and partners directly. Once it stabilises, it gets released to the above Plone Intranet repository.

Can I become a partner in the Quaive Intranet Consortium?
