Love it or loathe it, technology can capture public imaginations and enhance human connections; whilst disrupting established systems for the collective good.
Each platform enables its members (people, groups and organisations) to take action for the good of the whole community - encouraging everyone within a community to build on the strengths they already possess.
Here are some of the reasons why people love using our platform:
Members control how their account is set up and what they want to share. They control their data.
Members can quickly search for relevant activities and members via their 'Best Match' (saved profile).
Members can engage with a range of activities and the community members behind each activity.
Members can connect with like-minded people, interesting groups or brilliant organisations.
Members can post, promote and manage their own community activities - raising their profile.
Members can record and share their personal contributions in numbers and highlights.
I really recommend Hexitime - a healthcare skills exchange platform. I've found a QI coach, gained an improvement seminar and accessed a tour of a neighbouring trust's QI systems. Useful for all of us.

When we set you up with a new platform, we customise virtually everything about the platform and then train you to use the Content Management System. Here's some of the admin controls within our CMS:
✔ Platform management
✔ Activity management
✔ Member management
✔ Campaign management
✔ Reported items
✔ Page management
✔ Platform stats
The Made Open platform stimulates positive social action in communities. I cannot recommend their system and the organisation enough. It's not easy to find a partner with the same values and approach to partnership.
