Everything new!

Well, not really all new, but a lot has happened with our groupware. With the introduction of the new major release “Lu” (2021.11) there are new features, new products and a new name: tine.

The groupware is a teenager by now and for one the “2.0” is quite old-fashioned, especially since it never meant a version status, so we adapted the official name to our internal usage. Since we are often asked how it is actually pronounced: tine is an acronym for “this is not egroupware”, so the English pronunciation “tain” would be correct, but if you prefer to say “ti-ne”, that’s perfectly fine too.

But the most exciting news is definitely that tine is now available as Software as a Service (SaaS). We have put together three packages for different, typical use cases:

+ Sync & Share is the solution for companies or organizations that want to share and collaborate on files and documents easily and securely. Even our smallest package has it all: the powerful file manager from tine including data vault and preview service.

+ Back to the basics. The groupware package offers you just that: email, calendar, address book and tasks – the core competencies of any groupware. The SaaS package additionally offers basic anti-virus protection and a spam filter for IMAP mailboxes with the integrated e-mail service.

+ The Pro complete package. All groupware modules, plus file manager with preview service, project time recording, CRM functionalities, inventory, bookmark management and additional security through basic antivirus protection, data vault and a spam filter for IMAP mailboxes at the integrated e-mail service.

Hamburger Tafel

The Hamburger Tafel collects surplus food and distributes it to 27 food distribution points in and around Hamburg. Metaways supports the mostly honorary work with free hosting.

“Hamburg is the most beautiful city in the world,” say many locals out of conviction. Of course there are also downsides, but through great honorary commitment, there are attempts at every nook and corner of society to alleviate need.

One example is the Hamburger Tafel, which describes itself as a “social logistician”. 400 helpers collect surplus food from numerous retailers and companies and take it to distribution points for the needy. In the beginning, a card box was sufficient to manage the helpers and donors, but in the meantime the Hamburg Tafel has grown so much that software support was urgently needed. The administration system was provided by our partner SoftwareLoft, who then asked Metaways if we could take over the hosting.

Of course we didn’t hesitate and now the administration and the website run on our highly available servers – pro bono. Now we hope that we can also contribute a tiny bit to more people saying: “Hamburg is the most beautiful city in the world!”
