Welcome to Fossbox
We specialise in social innovation, open metadesign, networked collaboration consultancy and open source web-based software development including e-publishing, e-learning and CRM.
We use participatory design processes because we care about user experience and appropriate functionality for the universities, museums, non-profits, cooperatives and social enterprises we work with. We don't use technology to replace or control people but to promote genuinely inclusive working practices which make the most of available resources.
- Web-based software: e-publishing, e-learning, membership and case tracking
- Consultancy and Research: Metadesign, networked collaboration, participatory design and action research
- Training & Education: e-learning and peer training. Deskside and workshop training for users, administrators and developers.
We advocate and implement UK-based cloud or Free/Libre and Open Source Software because we feel it's a better fit with the culture of the social sector and because it's more cost-effective to build on community-maintained applications as well as avoiding problems with interoperability and lock-in.
We're a non-profit working with other non-profits in an agile way. We have a real commitment to the social innovation sector and an experienced understanding of the needs of academic, curatorial and non-profit organisations.
