Tiki named to 10 Best Open Source Collaboration Software Tools list!

Author: Rick Sapir / Tiki for Smarties - Published

The Tiki Community is proud to announce that Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware has been named by Small Business Computing as one of the best open source collaboration tools!
Top 10 list

From their article:

Collaboration software offer small businesses a wide variety of benefits. They can increase teamwork and communication, particularly if people on your team work in different locations. They can also help you share knowledge more widely throughout the organization and lessen the chance that employees will waste time duplicating the same work. They can also streamline your business processes and reduce the need for face-to-face meetings—both of which can decrease costs.

For Tiki specifically, the article goes on to say:

Today, it's a more full-featured open source collaboration software tool that also includes blogs, forums, calendar, image galleries, and surveys. Many people use it to manage their websites, and it can be particularly useful for intranets focused on a particular project.

Thank you to our helpful, active community of developers and users for helping Tiki make the list!

Roundtable this Thursday 19 May 2016

Author: Bernard Sfez - Published

This month of May our monthly meeting, our Roundtable discussion, is on Thursday, 19 May 2016. Our Roundtable meetings are cordial and fun, and besides, you will learn and be at the heart of Tiki’s team action.

What time, do you ask ? :-)
We had a usual 1800 (6 p.m.) (UTC) meeting but it turned out to be a bit difficult for some of our members as the Tiki team is worldwide with members found in every time zone. We discussed the matter and initiated a time rotation to help widen participation and to encourage people to join us all around the clock. The time was set by a vote of the people!

Our Roundtable meeting will be, then, on Thursday, 19 May 2016 at 13:00 (UTC).

We will continue with this time adjustment if the experience is a success.

This month we have a very interesting second hour around "Branding and Marketing" for Tiki.
