Social Network to help firms CoPe with e-business

A new website has been launched to help North East firms make informed decisions about best practice in e-business.

The Community of Practice for e-business (CoPe) is a free online resource which can be found at It aims to help them learn from each other to develop and refine best practice in e-business.

CoPe was developed by Sedgefield-based firm deBurca and e-business development agency, The North East Regional Portal.

James Burke, managing director at deBurca, said: “CoPe is an online environment where members can create communities, connect with each other, and share their knowledge and expertise relating to e-business. “It’s a kind of ‘social networking’ for businesses to encourage and improve the adoption of e-business in the North East.”

CoPe is powered by Tomoye ecco. Eric Sauve, Chief Executive at Tomoye, said: “CoPe is an excellent example of how communities can foster connections and informal learning. Communities of Practice such as CoPe bring the enterprise learning and knowledge sharing experience to a whole new level by providing not only connections, but ongoing value to the organisation.”
