We admire Microsoft's ability to produce software for medium to large organizations. Our dotLinked.NET implementation is a lightweight Microsoft SharePoint alternative because it is well suited for small to medium sized businesses. It also provides the basic functionality that any SharePoint installation might have. Any company or individual can register to get started. After that add members, contacts, teammates or resources to your account and invite them to collaborate within a password protected environment.
Currently dotLinked.NET supports site wide search functionality, dedicated dashboard with instant snapshot of recent updates, unlimited document uploads, ability to share calendar events, assign or define tasks between collaborative resources, create announcements that are displayed on the default dashboard, and post links to important websites relevant to the overall collaborative experience.
As mentioned before we provide the basic functionality of Microsoft SharePoint. There is no obligation to the end user because we see productive communication from an idealistic standpoint. In short, we are pleased to offer this free SharePoint alternative. Because if small to medium business is the engine of the world's economy their money can be better spent providing innovations instead of worrying about collaboration software.
Every company has to collaborate in some way. Whether that happens internally between employees or externally between customers, the tools used to generate communication is ultimately important. We offer another means of keeping everyone within the loop. Despite your business objective, using a lightweight tool will keep all those important players on the same page. This can happen because if everyone is looking at the same annoucements, the same documents, or the same tasks then everyone is working towards the same business objectives.
If you're reading this website then you've got all you need to start collaborating. dotLinked.NET uses the Software as a Service (SaaS) Model. We've completely embraced the idea that expensive server or desktop technology are there to hold us back. Software as a Service (SaaS) gets productivity done faster because there is less time spent configuring, installing, backing up or mucking around with IT staff just to get actual work done. We're also a piece of open source collaboration software (can be downloaded within the demonstration site).
Other solutions can offer you the basic functionality that you would expect from a collaborative suite; however our major differentiation is that we do not lock you into our technology. How is that possible? Because our technology sits within the browser. Therefore you are not locked into expensive installations nor are you limited to using one computer in a single location. Try the complete demo version to test drive the current functionality.
Strangely enough Cloud Computer is just another buzz word that technology evangelistas throw out into the cyber universe. For decades remote computers have handled the processing needs of organizations. dotLinked.NET is no different in that our lightweight Microsoft SharePoint alternative is readily available for anyone to use. Collaboration is as easy as 1, 2, 3. If you're going to embrace Cloud Computing fully then use the Internet as a powerful collaborative tool.
There are one of two ways to get started with our collaborative application. The first is trying the no obligation, fully functional demo version or to jump right into our free registration process; after which time you can create your own collaboration portals. Then you're fully on your way to connecting the dots with Anyone, Anywhere, at Anytime...
