By offering this upgraded version, Wiggio’s goal is to take cloud collaboration to the next level. “Wiggio has always enabled teams and organizations to work together online -- we've now built this premium version to best meet the advanced needs of groups, who request an ad-free, private-labeled environment for their members," said Wiggio Founder and CEO Dana Lampert.
The Premium offering is designed to transform the classic Wiggio application into an organization’
One of the first organizations to adopt the Premium Wiggio is the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS). At NIMBioS, top researchers from around the world work toward finding creative solutions to today’s biological problems, and they are using their Premium account as the central location to share their research, ideas, and data.
“We’re looking forward to applying the cloud collaboration approach to both foster scientific collaborations across disciplines and to evaluate how new technology is affecting the science while reducing travel and associated carbon costs,” said NIMBioS Director Louis Gross.
Wiggio’s membership has risen to nearly one million users since its launch in 2008. The company plans to expand its Premium offerings to more schools, businesses and other organizations in the near future.
