    Powerful tool to create a knowledge base gathering all our documents and procedures

    Ease-of-use
    Quality
    Support

    We have been using XWiki since 2011. We are using it to manage our documents and procedures. We decided to grant access to the knowledge base to all our collaborators. We are also using the XWiki SAS support service and we are really satisfied with it. We recently implemented the deprecated documents archive feature and our users are happy about it. The user interface could be improved but this has been polished in the newest version of XWiki. Keep up the good work!

    It is brilliant to simplify things for the end-users, that is why I once applied to your company. If I can suggest an improvement in very basic simplifications: - Giving more clarity about whether XWiki is a company, a product, a framework, an ensemble of products (I know the answers). - Minimal clicks before installing a demo. Clarity about each step before using it (extracting files, opening which one, etc.). Keep going! Best regards.

    Flexible and reliable solution for knowledge and document management ... and more

    Ease-of-use
    Quality
    Support

    We were delighted to find XWiki several years ago and the hosted solution has provided a flexible, reliable and cost effective solution for our group's knowledge and document management needs for over five years. Key has been the ability to mix unstructured and structured data - and the ability to access the structured data quickly through LIVETABLES - 100s and 1,000s of records can be filtered and sorted with no delays. The security features mean we've been able to set up wikis for different parts of the group and control access levels properly. The platform is accessible enough for those with some amateur coding ability - but the XWiki team has always been there to support and refine our attempts in a professional way. More recently we retained XWiki to develop a tailored Document Management system using the Collaboration Suite. We are really pleased with the results - and the fact that the project was delivered on time and on budget. Over the life of our use the cost will be far better than purchasing other document management systems - and we have a system that fits our specific requirements. All of this is achieved on a variety of browsers without any material internal IS requirements or costs. We look forward to continuing our collaboration for many years.

    I'm working mainly in outsourcing in an international company. We have a lot of member interactions and I was thinking of using the application for our activities. I was happy to see that you can get all sorts of extensions and that you can customize your instance to look exactly as you please. As a second job I'm dealing with commerce, stocks and invoices. With app within minutes I was able to build a nice app that would help me track all movement.

    Pros

    - Mobile view
    - Customisation
    - Multilingual

    Cons

    - Not sure which extensions are 'official' or community

    The smart way to deal with text and data

    Value for Money

    There are a lot of software out there to store documents, deal with live text, revisions, and collaboration... but most are just another bucket where information goes to die. XWiki is the programmable information management platform. As a platform, you can expand it with functions that make sense to input, link, display, report, and pretty much everything you need to do with your information to achieve your business outcomes. Plus, you don't need to be a hardcore programmer to get to use it efficiently.

    Pros

    Sits on top of a top-notch Java stack, ORM, with REST APIs, so you can virtually do anything from using it as a simple Wiki to using it as a back-end to a mobile app. The documentation and the core API is solid.

    Cons

    Not the Ruby on Rails approach, but why reinventing the wheel every time anyway?

    I'm using XWiki as a knowledge base for my e-shop project. I particularly enjoy the file manager application and the Application Within Minutes feature that I'm using to create page templates. I'm using it to work with my co-founder as we are working from different areas. This is easier to follow up our actions and progress.

    Very Powerful and Versatile Collaboration Software

    Ease-of-use
    Quality
    Support

    XWiki is an extremely powerful tool that is easy to use right out of the box. It is extremely versatile but does require a fair bit of programming/scripting knowledge to get the most out of it. The 'out of the box' configuration will work well for many small organizations. The permission controls are extremely versatile and secure, providing for public, private, individual or group permissions of all content at a very granular level. The XWiki.com SAS model for hosting and support is the perfect companion to the open source software. Service is prompt, and support staff have always been very knowledgeable.

    Quick: implementation was fast and direct, from the technical set up, to our content migration, and user training. Our organization transitioned from using three different wikis to just XWiki with no problems. Easy: The user interface, workflows, hierarchies, tools, etc. are straight-forward, intuitive and allows new users, as well as those coming to XWiki from other platforms (even non-wikis), to find their way and begin contributing. Great features: Simply put there are no features that we need that are not included. Open source: Most importantly for us, XWiki is open source allowing for a quicker pace of development, greater stability, broader features, etc. In addition, with the active XWiki community we can easily find peers to ask questions/find answers (in addition to the great support provided by XWiki.com). Everyone is happy: Our organization engages with a diverse community of technology experts from around the world and across industries--everyone has an opinion, and a favorite. I'm very happy that everyone is happy.

    The Wiki platform has brought our company "Energisa" the union of several units throughout the country and generating synergy among them. The simplicity and ease of access, integrated areas and processes and provided us improve our knowledge management. Today we have Wiki Energisa published in the world, providing external access colabodores, which further added in platarforma, beyond the time gain. I recommend its use as it is a platform that unites the management with the ease of access to any and all content published on the Wiki.

    This system is easy to use and its interface is agreeable. Document management is easy to organize. The mailing list allows to connect each internal and external person of the enterprise. We also use dedicated spaces to talk about specific subjects. The tool encourage employees to communicate better with each other and stimulates the collaboration in the company. We wish to improve the communication between employees and encourage people to share information. The knowledge of each employee is now classified by subject and tidy. Each person with a question may look on the tool if the answer is there. The gain in time is very important. I strongly recommend this tool

    Fantastic wiki for medium sized organizations

    Ease-of-use
    Quality
    Support

    We are using the Wiki after being disappointed with other open source wikis. Especially, the abilities to insert Markdown posts, link to LDAP, and fine grained ACL were one of the major reasons to switch to xWiki. We love the Nested spaces introduced in 7.3, and have since upgraded to all major release upgrades. The Cons were mostly a rather lengthy setup phase (couple months) to really understand all the Catalina / Tomcat performance options and to have a smoothly running instance. However, all in all we are really satisfied, and the Support on IRC is quite casual and very reactive. We never have to wait too long to receive an answer.
