After looking at various alternatives, we decided to use TractionTeampage to address our communications problems. Traction is a combination of a blog and a wiki.

Traction Screenshot - NHS Orkney BlogA blog is a special kind of website. You can post messages, documents, pictures, videos, comments, etc. on the blog. Doing so is as easy as sending an email.

Posting to the blog is easyIt’s therefore better than a website because there’s no technical barrier to putting things on it. our users have been posting all sorts of stuff: lost & found notices, charity sponsorship requests, policies & procedures, press releases, opening hours, health protection notices, staff vacancies, training, stuff for sale, forms, etc.
