Fremont, CA (PRWEB) October 3, 2007
Underscoring the growing trend of corporations and large organizations discovering that wikis can be an alternative to email or intranets for content management and document collaboration, eTouch Systems today announced six major new customers for its enterprise wiki. The customers include a Fortune 500 financial services company, a major publicly-traded equipment manufacturer, the European insurance provider Hestia, the non-profit organization Association Forum of Chicagoland, the government agency, Judicial Council of California, and an educational institution, University of Virginia .
Wikis are Web-based collaboration tools that are rapidly growing in popularity in the enterprise as an alternative to email overload and an easier to use alternative to intranets. Like a shared whiteboard on the network, Wikis let any number of people inside and outside organization share information. Anyone who is authorized can go into this shared workspace to add, delete or edit content. By getting everyone "on the SamePage", employees avoid email overload and save time by directly creating new documents, organizing information and sharing ideas.
"Despite the hype, we've learned that most large institutions are still not using wikis yet. There's still tremendous growth potential in this industry as more people begin to realize that Wikis are the best way to collaborate, organize and share information on the corporate network - both inside an organization and externally with the public," said Aniruddha Gadre, CEO of eTouch.
A wiki is a collaborative website that can be edited by anyone in the organization who has access to it. Customers and employees alike can access the SamePage wiki, because it offers varying levels of "fine grained" access and security. SamePage integrates with databases and corporate applications like MS Office and has the sophisticated back end administration, database and security features that IT departments demand. Customization is available from touch's team of expert consultants.
"These new customers chose us over dozens of competitors primarily because we offer better service and support. They also liked the fact that SamePage looks and works like a word processor -- and the back-end security and enterprise readiness," added Gadre.
