Open Social as extranet software. Collaborate anytime, anywhere.

An extranet is like an intranet, except it allows you to invite users outside of your organization to join. It’s a place for people to collaborate, share their knowledge, and streamline business processes such as data sharing.

  • All content in one place.
  • Security? You’re safe us.
  • Brainstorm and grow together. 

Create an extranet where users can interact in real-time through private messaging and increase productivity in groups and discussions. Create attractive landing pages to promote events and special content.

Use Open Social to provide your users with access to their own extranet. 


A resource library for your extranet software

Resource Library Feature

A feature for knowledge sharing


Our resource library is perfect for an extranet. Your community can build an everlasting knowledge base. Sharing knowledge and working together is important to success.

Since information changes and evolves quickly, community members need to be able to find and share content effectively and quickly.

It's a system that structures content so that information is easy to browse and find. Once information has been published, it can be indexed for search in your community.

In the end, you're left with searchable information, a click away from your the members on your extranet.


This feature is only available for our enterprise customers. Explore our different price packages.
