Using GetBoo for Internal Company Bookmarking

December 21, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

I am still in the midst of building out a internal infrastructure and tools for a client that will utilize a virtual office with everyone telecommuting.  I have been working to implement open source solutions for the company for one being that the company is very open source driven.  But more importantly there is the cost issues involved in getting a company off the ground.  So after much thought of unique ways to establish good information exchange when all the employees work from home I came up with a few ideas.  The bonus for me is you have a clean sheet of paper to start the employees off on.  Following this concept I wrote in my last post about using WordPress, Prologue Theme, and a few plugins to create an internal Twitter clone.  So as my next step I have installed GetBoo to allow employees to bookmark internally.  GetBoo has the ability much like Delicious to tag links and make links private.  One additional thing GetBoo offers which is beneficial for internal use is Groups and Folders.  This would allow people in a company division to separate pertinent bookmarks by internal areas of interest.  In what this company does there is a lot of Internet research involved for many employees.  Be it developers searching for information on libraries etc. to researching working to find new prospective clients or affiliates.  GetBoo can benefit across the board and provides a Firefox Add-On to allow ease of bookmarking from browsers.  This helps to encourage people to actually use it.

The only thing lacking as of now is an ability to have GetBoo authenticate to LDAP servers.  I will update as I see how well this concept really works within the new company.

    A recomendação é consignar com antecedência os pedidos das compradores que desejam adquirir para vender calçados em casa e
    pedir para os catálogos unicamente os calçados que interessaram às compradores. http://produto.mercadolivre.com.br/MLB-863571398-tnis-new-balance-696-masculino-promoco-frete-gratis-_JM
