Today, many companies or teams are in need of exchanging information privately. This can be a common knowledgebase about a product, a discussion environment for employees, etc.

Any Answerbase-powered website can require its users to be registered, approved, and logged in to ensure that only qualified user’s access the created information.
This website can be for a small team discussing the details of a project being developed or a huge company's internal knowledgebase where only allowed users can contribute and reach. The application can simply cover all when it comes to supporting your internal collaboration needs through Q&A.
The private community can also support “exclusive (or paid)” content, where users need to make a payment to have access to the Q&A website. This is handy for anyone willing to create an elite collaboration environment while keeping contributors motivated.
There are many other features that encourages users interact with each other like "users having custom profiles", gaining points and levels according to the answered questions, social media integration and more.
