Bizwiki Blog Alpha Launch!

We are pleased to announce that the US Bizwiki site is now live as an Alpha version.

What this means is that this is an early version of the site that doesn’t contain all the features that are planned for the final version, and some of the features are not fully functional (that’s the way our technical team describes anything that’s not really working properly that they don’t want to be asked to fix yet).

A huge amount of work is going on behind the scenes, but in the meantime having the site up on a publicly accessible website gives us a chance to stress-test the servers and have a few live users try it out from varying locations.

We will invite more users when the site hits the Beta stage, but in the meantime please feel free to browse around the site and hopefully get an idea of the scope of our ambition in launching the US version of the Business Wiki site that anyone can edit – there will be over ten million companies and organisations listed here when we’re finished!

Here’s to an exciting 2009 from everyone at Bizwiki!

    I was sent this from my neighbor about our home business:

    “Gift Works in Suisun City, California – Gift Shops on Bizwiki”

    I need to know when I can sign in to correct the telephone number. Please send me an email when I can correct it..

    This site looks like it will be a great resource for both business owners and business seekers! Thanks for putting this together!

    Thanks for your comments. Gilda, we are working hard on getting the functionality ready for beta launch. We will announce any new features on the blog as soon as they are live. Thanks.

    This is a great idea! I like the idea of coming to one site to look for a specific business or service or to brows where I might just find a business I didn’t know was located in my area. This is especially helpful for people like me who have moved to a new city. Looking up businesses by a specific location, then in their listing seeing much more info than one would see in a yellow page ad plus a map giving the location is just perfect when you’re “new in town”. I’m looking forward to when this site is “fully functional”. Best of Luck! Helen in LA
