SaaS collaboration tool goes open source

Users have the right to know what is under the hood, says founder

Christchurch’s Onlinegroups.net has officially launched its software-as-a-service for online collaboration. At the same time, the company has released GroupServer, the software that powers the service, as open source.
Onlinegroups.net aims to make online groups and sites easily available, without administration costs, says the company’s founder and CEO, Dan Randow.

The website, which has around 14,000 users worldwide, offers message boards, file-sharing, chat and discussion forums, suitable for virtual groups, inter-agency collaboration or hosted extranets, he says. Groups sit on a site of their own, which can be customised with logos, varying colour schemes and site introductions.

Public group sites are cost-free, while premium sites, with private work spaces, are charged with a subscription fee, says Randow. The main difference between Onlinegroups.net and other group collaboration sites, such as Yahoo Groups and Google, is that Onlinegroups.net is completely advertising-free, he says.
