      For organizations looking to develop entirely with their own dev teams, with Brightspot, you can go headless, use a head or do both. Brightspot headless allows organizations to integrate proprietary sources, enterprise applications and other software to create a unified, customizable intranet in parallel with content creation and publishing in the CMS.

      Headless capabilities also support multisite consistency, which can be beneficial to an intranet solution. For example, a blog from the CEO could be published on the main corporate site for investors and easily modified for the intranet for different internal audiences.

      Brightspot makes it possible to integrate additional third-party and proprietary systems into the publishing workflow. This includes video companion functionality for live events like employee town halls and webinars, newsletter integrations, and user authentication.

      Slack and HR tool integrations can be particularly useful for intranet users. Such integrations make it faster and easier to add functionality to the intranet that will get employees to spend time on it and engage.
