Intranets.com is giving U.S. troops serving overseas a holiday present—free access to its hosted communications tools.
The Woburn, Mass.-based company provides Web-based collaboration tools such as file and document sharing, e-mail, calendaring and discussion forums on a subscription basis, mostly to small-to-medium businesses and departments of larger organizations. Now those services are available free to members of the armed forces stationed overseas.
Troops can register for their own Intranets.com site at www.intranets.com.
Where businesses share project files, members of the armed forces and their families can share letters, photos, even sound and video clips. Where businesses schedule meetings and conference rooms, troops can keep track of upcoming events in the lives of their families back home.
