ConcourseConnect was developed by Concursive Corporation (known for their Open Source CRM ConcourseSuite) and is a platform for deploying large scale web-based communities. The platform integrates Customer Relationship Management software with a front-facing Social Networking application, providing data integration between two separate business scenarios and allowing both the end-user and administrator to better benefit from transparent social associations.

Background[edit]

ConcourseConnect was built to tie into ConcourseSuite (Concursives' CRM Software) which allows its capabilities and features to work together. ConcourseConnect is derived from Concursive's Open Source Software Team Elements software product.[1] The Team Elements source code has been available since August, 2004.[2][3] On March 27, 2009, Concursive rebranded the product as ConcourseConnect and publicly released the product as beta, encouraging community members to collaborate and help refine the product. ConcourseConnect compares to Socialtext, eXo Platform, Jive Software's Clearspace, Elgg, and Yelp!.
