Company Details


PBworks is real-time creative collaborative editing software that enables businesses to interact with their clients in a timely, participative atmosphere. Users can create free basic wiki workspaces or upgrade to a premium plan to access additional features such as enhanced security features, customization through CSS, and more storage space. Workspaces can be either public or private. The software service is only available in English.

A number of businesses and corporations use PBworks to create private wikis for employees; one case study described a legal firm which had transitioned to PBworks as a document management system in order to cut their IT costs. Clients also use PBworks as a host for internal documents, including CafePress.com, Capgemini, Deloitte, the Financial Times, Kiva, and Wideload Games while educational groups who are known to use PBworks include DePaul University, the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago, the University of Toronto, the University of Wisconsin–Madison, and Wayne State University.

PBworks was launched by David Weekly as well as Ramit Sethi and Nathan Schmidt.
