CCText – Use Wiki to Work More Efficiently


CCText is a collaboration application that uses wiki technology to give businesses of all sizes a better way for employees to work together. Rather than fussing with complicated systems that take weeks or months to master, CCText is an application that caters to anyone who wants a collaboration system that is as quick, simple, and fast as possible.

What CCText lacks in innovative features, it makes up for in its sheer speed and ease-of-use. Create as many workspaces as you’d like, invite the collaborators you’d like to work with, and immediately begin uploading images, audio files, or video files. Anything within the workspace wiki page can be edited in an instant, without waiting for time consuming downloads, and real-time previews let you see what a new page will look like before clicking save. CCText can extract the content from documents or PDF files directly into the system, reducing the need to re-download a new version every time someone on your team has made an edit.

Only the contributors who have been added to a project can see its content, which makes CCText a completely secure way to manage your work projects online. And thanks to the wiki concept, you’ll always be able to refer to the workspace history to see past revisions and restore old settings no matter what a collaborator decides to change. Finally, CCText’s integration with Google Apps allows users to login directly from their Google page and keep their information hosted on a Google server. For businesses who want a seamless and fast way to collaborate online, you’d be hard pressed to find anything better than CCText.

Practical Uses:

  • Work together with colleagues on a group project
  • Keep separate workspaces for each client
  • Use as an internal wiki to list company policies and codes
  • Solicit feedback on an upcoming presentation or pitch

Insider Tips:

  • Set flags on topics to receive notifications when anything has been changed
  • Add multiple topics to a single workspace
  • Watch videos or view images within the workspace
  • Click Topic History to see which revisions each collaborator has made

What we liked:

  • User-generated tags help keep multiple workspaces organized
  • CCText can automatically extract the content from .doc, .text, .pdf, .odt, and .rtf files into a workspace page
  • Search for content or key phrases in any workspace
  • Easy to track each contributor’s revisions and updates

What we didn’t like:

  • Users only have one pricing plan to choose from, which might not be a perfect fit for every business
