Twake - Open-Source Collaboration Platform
Written by Divine Okoi
ADVERTISEMENTS

Twake is a modern open-source collaborative workspace that allows you to keep all of your data in one centralized location and to manage your projects using a single UI that features integrated support for all your favourite collaborative tools.

Its beautiful user interface offers a rich user experience that is easy to get accustomed to whether you use it for chatting with your team, managing tasks, managing events using its calendar, or storing files.

There is modern-styled online documentation to assist developers and users in having the best possible experience, and an external collaborator feature that allows for specialized discussion channels where Twake members and non-members can collaborate on projects simultaneously. Best of all, you can use it for free, subscribe to its paid plan, or host it yourself just like you would OwnCloud and NextCloud.

Concerning security, Twake treats user data with respect and toils to ensure that your business is safe by using encrypted databases for which only you can decide who has access. The databases are also stored in Europe and use data policies compliant with the GDPR.

All transfers are carried out using HTTPS/SSL and end-to-end WebSockets and last but certainly not least, you can opt to self-host Twake on your own servers using the company’s on-premise offer and Docker.
