What's New at Zanby

2010 is off to a great start here at Zanby. More and more companies and organizations are learning how our unique online community solutions profoundly reduce the time, pain, and expense of connecting all parts of an organization, or coalition of organizations, to each other, and to the wider social web.

Here's a look at what's new in our world.

New Website
Our company site,, was recently relaunched with a wealth of new info about our software products and technology services, including case studies showing how some of our current clients are using Zanby's unique groups-of-groups architecture to manage organizations large and small, By allowing you to deliver collaboration tools to groups of people, then cluster them into "group families" (groups of groups), Zanby breaks down the silos that separate chapters, regions, departments, brands, and partners, both internally and externally, so you can seamlessly manage all of your content, communications, and activities across the entire enterprise.

New Platform
On January 30 we upgraded the free Zanby groups at to R3.1 of our platform. Zanby 3.1, our current product release, is a major improvement from Zanby 2.0. It includes a much cleaner user interface than before with a wider layout and new navigation, a new search engine, and 500+ bugfixes.

For our commercial clients, 3.1 provides the ability to host multiple branded satellite communities on the same Zanby Enterprise license, custom branding via CSS, internationalization, and significantly reduces the implementation time for new communities. We can now go from signature to go-live in just 2-3 weeks.

In the coming days, look for a further upgrade to Zanby 3.2, which includes Facebook Connect integration!

New Projects

  • Rework the World: On June 2-5, 2010, 2000 entrepreneurs, opinion leaders, local and global leaders in politics, civil society and business will gather at the 5th Global YES Summit in Leksand, Sweden. They will drive and develop the new ventures that can build a more sustainable and inclusive tomorrow and "Rework the World." A joint project of the Tallberg Foundation and YES Inc., the organizers are using Zanby to network attendees around 100 sustainable development projects to be featured at the conference -- before, during, and after the event -- and to share content from the conference with the social web via Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, etc. Check it out at

  • Climate Networks: This shared platform connects the grassroots members of four national activist groups working to address global climate change --, Energy Action Coalition, Focus the Nation, and CO2NSEQUENCE -- creating unprecedented opportunities for cross-promotion and coordination of national advocacy campaigns across the movement. We recently upgraded the Climate Networks platform to Zanby 3.2, which incorporates FacebookConnect. This enables users to invite their Facebook friends to join and attend events managed on any of the Zanby-powered Climate Networks sites. READ MORE
