At Acumen Fund, we are using Socialtext to help manage a growing social venture capital fund with offices in India, Pakistan, Kenya and New York. The wiki allows us to effectively source, diligence and execute deals, while at the same time learning from our successes and mistakes. Socialtext enables us to more effectively build transformative businesses that solve the problems of poverty and capture knowledge that we share with the development and business communities.
We run all our projects on Socialtext. It enables my company to not only release more CDs per year, but execute without things slipping through the cracks. Thanks to Socialtext, we're collaborating better than ever and 3.0 promises to make the experience even more fluid, and fun.
Socialtext Workspace helps us eliminate some of the barriers to knowledge creation and sharing. In addition, the easy-to-use REST API has allowed us to integrate data from several different repositories into the wiki, providing a one stop shop for important technical information about our product line.
Working on projects with Socialtext is like constantly sitting around a conference room table together. Our researchers are easily involved in the conversation, both learning and contributing, as opposed to the confusing "busy-ness" created by exchange of multiple interrupting emails. Working collaboratively via wiki pages is such a pleasure versus trying to track changes in a word processing document. We've been amazed at how quickly our group was able to start using it, and how it has improved our process.
Socialtext’s intuitive and simple user interface has allowed Swinerton to realize the value of a corporate wiki within a short timeframe. This was greatly increased the sharing of information, thereby increasing the productivity and effectiveness of our distributed IT support staff."
