Incentive is a server software for real-time social collaboration with streams, wikis and blogs - which means that all data is safe and secure within you own server.

For those of you who want to use Incentive in a cloud environment, we can now offer Incentive on Windows Azure, Microsoft's highly esteemed cloud solution for big and small companies.

What do I need?

To install Incentive on Windows Azure you need an Azure account. Normally you get a 3 month free period to try out the functionality. Read more about Azure and the trial period at:

How much is Incentive?

Incentive is free for up to 3 users, which is default when you install it. For additional users - please see our pricing model. Support and upgrades for the first 12 months is included and after that optional.

Is that it?

Yes, that's it. Windows Azure offers a server environment in the cloud so that you do not have to install Incentive on your own server, if you don't want to.


1. Get a trial account on Windows Azure, or use your current account if you're already a customer.
2. Click "New website" and "From Gallery" and look for Incentive. Install it.

Import your data from ScrewTurn Wiki to Incentive

ScrewTurn Wiki is a popular free wiki software, but is now discontinued. You should consider importing your data to another popular wiki software, such as Incentive.

Please note that we do not alter your original ScrewTurn Wiki-installation in any way; it's still there - safe and sound. But as soon as you start using Incentive, we doubt that you will ever want to go back.
