Internal Company Wiki Suggestions?

Post by Sudy » Thu Jun 21, 2018 8:43 am

I want to set up an internal company wiki for procedural guides and documentation. Basically, I want to stop maintaining dozens of Word files and PDFs in shared network folders. While I'm slightly technically inclined, I'm not I.T. and I have zero experience in these matters. I've done some searches, but there are tons of options.

Does anyone have insight into what would be the simplest option for a smaller company, bearing in mind it will be internal access only? I'll be administrating the wiki itself, but will be relying upon I.T. to do the setup.

I used TikiWiki in the past, when I was on a tech support team of about 10 people, and we transferred a bunch of technical documentation onto this site to build a knowledge base. It's definitely pretty simple to use.

Microsoft Sharepoint? Not sure if it's expensive, but it would make it so everyone can maintain their own documents.

What about the software Wikipedia itself uses? It's completely free to use and seems to have become the standard among wikis:

Was going to suggest MediaWiki myself.

There are smaller implementations that can even go serverless (just Javascript files) but not sure if that's multi-user friendly.
