I have a technical role in company that makes stuff. Part of my job is fixing things that have gone wrong.
For years we have talked about having a data base that is searchable so you could enter key words describing a symptom, and up would come examples of past histories of similar symptoms and remedies, experiences, etc.
The technical issues about setting up such a database have remained unsurmountable to our IT department. Today it suddenly occured to me - the perfect model of the type of data base - complete with all the search capability that I am looking for - you guessed it, this forum.
I want to set up an internal forum to run on the company intrAnet. Accessable by our various global offices. Moderated by a chosen few.
A quick internet search shows me that there are lots of options for 'free ware' forum software.
My intention is to initially set up a demonstration. I might then persuade the bean-counters to part with some of thir precious money to buy decent software if that is the way to go.
Any folks out there got advise on the merits / demerits of different freebee software??
