Valo announces general availability of Valo Modern

Valo has announced the general availability of Valo Modern, the world’s first intranet solution that is 100% built on Modern SharePoint.

Modern Sites revolutionise SharePoint, bringing a faster, more responsive, user focused product offered in the form of Communication Sites, Hub Sites and Modern Team Sites. The modern experience also provides integration with other key Office 365 apps, such as Forms, PowerApps and Power BI straight out of the box.. As a product built on top of SharePoint, Valo’s team were quick to begin development on a new version that could take advantage of this exciting new functionality.

Valo’s developers have been busy working on this next generation of their intranet-in-a-box solution, supported by feedback from their partners and early adopter customers from across the world. The announcement of general availability comes almost a month ahead of schedule, making Valo Modern the very first intranet solution to take full advantage of Modern SharePoint Sites.
