Extranets and Online Communities

Businesses and non-profit organisation can create online communities by allowing customers, members, vendors or investors to view/contribute information at a single web based access point.

Security options can provide “members only” areas where private collaboration is required. This can be done using content publishing, noticeboards/ forums or chat rooms.

Extranets allow organisations small and large to enable the exchange of business information and transactions between remote employees, business partners, suppliers, key customers, etc. Extranets offer a cheap and efficient way for businesses to connect with their foreign trading partners 24 hours a day.

Out of the box Plone provides the tools to meet these requirements.
