Overall Satisfaction with eXo Platform

  • We are working for one of our clients who is developing social collaboration features with good UI and UX that eXo platform provides.Client also need more use of events and tasks for meetings . eXo platform provides its powerful calendar features to satisfy needs of client's requirements. eXo platform also provides powerful document and content management that satisfies the architecture of application.
  • Blog engine is also very useful as It is being widely used for sharing ideas in our application.
  • Chat application is loaded with fully functional features and high resources that are needed for chat.
  • Chat Application is awesome with video conferencing features.
  • Blog Extension is also good for writing blogs and sharing blogs with access and modify permission level.
  • Custom extension to modify or override portal related changes
  • Most of the configuration are XML based which is quite a good thing for initiators.
  • Ajax call timing is more when creating space from eXo portal. Sometimes some UI portion was getting messed up in older version of eXo portal.
  • Should have a good validations for e.g "There are no documents available in this folder" instead of blank when there are no documents available in document folder.
  • Positive: Better customer service and support
One of the main reasons for choosing eXo was the good UI and UX. It is well suited for social collaboration features. Chat application provided by eXo is very good and is outstanding when compared to skype. Also Calendar feature is also very helpful for social apps development which plays an important role in developing Social Webapps. Another thing that makes eXo unique is Documents. It plays very good role in document upload and media feature.

It is very well suited for social collaboration requirements. Also for Intranet based projects it is very well developed. Space is a good feature in eXo where we can invite the user and for sharing ideas via Space.

I would like to suggest a point for intranet of eXo. There should be signup option for new users and then Admin can make a call to approve them or not.
