Open source. Sounds like a techie term, doesn't it? Well, imagine software that has a free license, gives you the ability to change it at any time, and is developed by a worldwide community of developers. Throughout our dedicated service to the non-profit sector since 1999, we have seen first-hand the tremendous benefits of Open Source.
PICnet’s solutions are based on an open source framework called Joomla, a robust Content Management System (CMS) that goes far beyond the scope and agility of proprietary systems.
Every single day, the world visits more than one million Joomla based Web sites, and people are taking notice. Joomla has won worldwide acclaim and awards of excellence in just the past year – even beating out the Firefox Web browser for the coveted LinuxWorld best open source project award. Large firms, including Google, are contributing fiscally and developmentally to Joomla projects.
With more than 50,000 developers across the globe contributing to the Joomla community, your organization can rest assured that a vast number of eyes are constantly checking the code for enhancements and possible upgrades to the framework.
What does that mean for your experience with PICnet? By building on the free and proven open source platform of Joomla, PICnet offers cost-effective website solutions for your organization, whether you're looking for the simple elegance of the hosted software-as-a-service option of Non-Profit Soapbox or seeking custom site development to meet more specific needs.
