Document management, polls, wikis and more. Built to meet the needs of today’s business, you get everything you need to manage your business, work together and get real results.
Keep everyone inside and outside your community up-to-date with articles — great for sharing things like news, press releases, and knowledge base how-to’s. You can create your own categories, add tags to make them easy to find, set permissions, and share the information you need people to know. And you can boost engagement with built-in social tools, including commenting, like and follow buttons, and rating controls.
Get your organization talking and sharing with your own enterprise-level blogging platform. Use them internally to increase communication and encourage the sharing of ideas, opinions and news. You can also open them up to the public for sales and marketing. And there’s a robust approvals workflow built-in, so you can be sure that nothing gets out that doesn’t fit your brand.
Don’t just store files, make them an interactive tool for your organization through collaboration, comments & ratings. Communifire makes old-fashioned document management modern. You can easily upload and share documents with others using drag-and-drop from your desktop, or use the built-in content browsers. And you always have full control, with the ability to view the upload history of each file and roll-back to previous versions if you need. Set fine-grained permissions on individual folders and choose who can view, upload, edit, and delete them, so things are always organized for you.
Help your people share their knowledge, skills & best practices in your very own collaborative workspace. Use your wiki to collaborate, share ideas, plan projects, create a knowledge base, and much more. You can also attach files and embed videos and photos so employees get the whole picture. Then extend the conversation into the comments to get the whole team on board. To make back-end management easy, every edit to a wiki page creates a new version. So you can always view the history of the document, compare versions, and roll-back if you need to. And of course your wiki is fully searchable and you can even take wiki pages with you–just click the download button and Communifire will automatically generate a PDF that you can share.
Create your own content pages for your community or for specific groups. As simple or elaborate as you need, these can include indexes of information or whole web pages of detailed content – with images, photos, and videos. Dig in and code your own layouts using HTML & CSS or simply use the WYSIWYG editor. Embed anything, like 3rd party maps from Bing, Hubspot CTA’s forms, Google Spreadsheets, MailChimp email forms, SlideShare Presentations, Facebook Timelines, Twitter streams, and much, much more. With these pages, you can create amazing public facing websites and even helpful internal websites for your company departments and project teams.
Publish and track RSVPs for meetings, webcasts & conferences. Easily stay on top of all your important activities. Showcase your customer service by providing a helpful list of local places for each event, where people can grab a bite to eat, shop, or take in the sights. Plus upload photos and videos to help document your event. And the powerful search lets you filter and sort on tags, keywords, categories, location, and date.
A complete photo sharing experience. Upload and share photos into albums. Insert them into your blog posts, articles, or wikis directly from your computer or from one of your community albums. Drag-n-drop them directly from your desktop to speed up your process, it’s less work and more flow. Create stock photo albums so everyone has access to dress up their posts and make them look beautiful. You can upload as many as you want, 1 or 100+, Communifire will handle the load for you. Name your photos, provide a description, tag them, like them, rate them, and collect comments.
Harness the power of video for your business. Now you can upload, tag, and share your own videos with the rest of the team, your customers, and anyone else — on your own website, while still having your YouTube account. Communifire uses the enhanced libx264 codec to transform your videos into the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High Definition (HD), MP4 video format, which makes your videos accessible on desktop browsers and modern mobile devices. You can organize them by category, tag them for searching, and add your own meta data. Share videos from popular services like YouTube and Vimeo with a simple copy & paste into your status updates. Easily embed them in other content – like blogs, wikis, and discussions.
Polls let you ask quick questions about any topic – just type in your Q, provide a few options and invite your team to reply. Real-time bar charts let you take the pulse of your team fast.
Or gain more in-depth knowledge with multiple-question surveys. Easily and intuitively drag-and-drop your questions in any order. View the results in beautiful visual charts.
Everything is just a click away. The search remembers everything, so you don’t have to. It’s super smart, because it knows what you’re allowed to find and helps you find it, instantly.
