I work for a small digital agency (10-15 employees). We design and build websites (using php and Django). Are we better off building our own intranet using django or going for a pre built (free or paid for) solution?

Key features needed:

  • Project management (basecamp clone)
  • Time reporting
  • Local and external file sharing (dropbox clone)

Given the nature of your business I would say build it yourselves.

This will give your team practice and experience in the products and technologies that you sell.

You'll probably learn some new techniques too!

Thanks, just worried we can't build it in time and on budget! – Rob B Jun 8 '10 at 8:30
I have to agree here. Even today, almost 3 years later, I'd say there's nothing free you can really use without building up. And there's basically nothing paid that will be worth it for a company with 10-25 employees. – Cawas May 29 '13 at 13:21
