Pathhead, Midlothian, United Kingdom, 2006/10/14 - A simple to use method for sharing information and communicating over the internet. The product is Skype compatible so making it even more relevant for the way people wish to communicate today. the software is designed to 'simply work'.
New software company Anderson Toomey has launched a free easy-to-use website for friends, families and groups of people who want to keep in touch via a spam-free secure site. Community in a Box (CIAB) – provides the perfect platform for private member communities to share information, be they families or shared interest groups such as sports/social clubs, parent teacher associations or Neighbourhood Watch groups.
Alistair Toomey, managing director of Midlothian-based Anderson Toomey says: “CIAB is particularly ideal for families as these are becoming more fragmented than ever; factors such as divorce or work have driven many of us far from our roots, often to locations on the other side of the world.
“We can no longer just pop down the road to see family members. It’s all too easy to loose touch with our cousins and their children, for example. We realise we have lost track of where everyone is; especially all the teenagers who are off travelling, somewhere! Now CIAB (myciab.com) offers a simple way for everyone to keep in touch, in one secure site, with a whole range of really useful features making it both practical and fun.”
