2009. PBWorks - business wiki in real-time



Today we more and more often hear the new term - "unified collaboration". This is the new logical step after "unified communications" and means that collaboration and communication tools are integrated. The pioneer in this movement is PBWorks (formerly PBWiki) - an enterprise wiki service. Today they announced four new features for communications and collaboration in real-time: messenger, live notifications, real-time, editing, voice conferencing. Interesting, that after that PBWorks positions itself, as the Google Wave alternative. But, while Google Wave is an attempt to re-think the concept of individual communication, PBWorks is built around corporate networks and project workspaces, and ***




2009. PBworks incorporates project management

PBworks has introduced PBworks Project Edition, a modified version of its collaborative online wiki software that integrates project management features. The tool incorporates simple project management functionalities, including workflow management, task assignment, and milestones, eliminating the need for a separate application like Basecamp. This integration makes PBworks an appealing choice for teams seeking a collaborative tool for project-related tasks such as document creation, requirements gathering, or design review. Task management is seamlessly integrated with the tasks themselves, providing a logical and efficient approach. PBworks Project Edition is priced at $20 per user per month, while "guest" licenses, intended for clients and contractors involved in a specific project, are available free of charge.


2009. PBwiki targets business users with a new name

PBwiki has rebranded itself as PBworks to better align with its expanded offerings and functionalities beyond a traditional wiki platform. With a revamped user interface and enhanced features introduced last year, PBworks now provides businesses with a customizable wiki workspace that includes mobile support, document management, access controls, and more. In addition, the company plans to launch a new project management application in the coming months. PBworks has also introduced a specialized "Legal Edition" that combines wiki functionality with case management features, offering a legal knowledge base and an electronic deal room for efficient file management by legal professionals. With a strong client base that includes teams from over a third of the Fortune 500, as well as prestigious institutions like the United Nations, The Financial Times, and Harvard University, PBworks has gained a loyal following. Similar to Salesforce, PBworks operates on a paid subscription model, ensuring an ad-free experience for its users.


2008. PBWiki Rolls Out Beta 2.0

Chris Yeh, an investor and executive at PBWiki, recently reached out to inform us about the public release of PBWiki version 2.0. With the increasing activity in the wiki and collaboration space, including the launch of Google Sites, Yeh believed that PBwiki's major update would make an interesting story, especially as they approach the milestone of 500,000 wikis. He provided access to the demo product, showcasing new features such as folders, page- and folder-level access controls, and an enhanced professional and customizable look and feel. These improvements offer enhanced organization and granular access controls. Notably, the user interface has been revamped, resulting in a more polished appearance for the wiki. Yeh explained that PBWiki focuses on a slightly different market compared to Google, and while Google's entry validates the collaboration space, Google Sites does not pose a direct threat to PBwiki at the moment. Yeh highlighted that Google Sites, with its 10 GB of free storage, is a simple and visually appealing wiki product but lacks enterprise readiness, broader availability, comprehensive security, and service level agreements. To delve deeper into the comparison between Google Sites and PBWiki, Yeh provided additional insights and commentary.


2007. PBWiki Adds Five New, Useful Features

PBWiki, the collaborative wiki editor tool, has introduced several new features based on user feedback. These additions include a live collaborative spreadsheet, voice chat for leaving messages, and a shared calendar for scheduling. In partnership with Fliqz, PBWiki now allows users to upload videos using the Fliqz widget, and they have also incorporated a new plug-in for event planning and ticket sales. These updates demonstrate PBWiki's commitment to its user base and their dedication to providing useful features. The $2 million in funding raised earlier this year has likely contributed to the development of these enhancements. In related wiki news, WetPaint has introduced a collaborative feature for artists and launched a contest to celebrate their new "Please Touch" release.


2007. PBWiki Raises $2 Million

PKWiki, a wiki platform catering to educators, businesses, and individuals, has secured $2 million in funding from Mohr Davidow Ventures. This funding comes after a previous round of $350,000 announced in November, which has allowed the team to expand from 3 to 6 members. In addition, PBWiki recently introduced new features including point-and-click WYSIWYG editing and support for plugins, similar to widgets, from Gabbly, Slide.com, YouTube, and others. However, despite these updates, PBWiki's plugin implementation has received less attention compared to Wetpaint's widget strategy, which offers support for embedded videos, Meebo widgets, and Photobucket slideshows. In my opinion, Wetpaint has managed to inject more excitement and versatility into the wiki experience, while PBWiki's approach falls short in terms of fun and flexibility. Nevertheless, PBWiki doesn't necessarily need to prioritize being flashy, as its primary audience is not individual users.
