What is a groupware solution ?

It is an advanced technology of computer software that allows groups and teams to communicate and collaborate better. Emailing, scheduling, project/task management, real-time chats, and information sharing are features of groupware. The main idea of groupware technology is to contribute to collaboration and communication between members of a group.

That kind of collaborative solutions turns into an integrated, enterprise-wide information system when it is used to resolve real business problems effectively within organizations. And no matter whether hosting or client-server solutions are used, organizations will benefit from the integration. If to be more specific, the advantages are:

  • Project management. Almost any groupware features tools for managing projects. You can use project management tools to design project plans, create team schedules, track project activities and report project outcomes.
  • Task management. Collaborative services support functionality for task management allowing you to organize work of your department or the whole company. You can create todo lists, make task assignments, review task reports and build task workflows.
  • Email and real-time collaboration. Most software solutions based on services allow users to collaborate with each other by sending information (like tasks and documents) by email, as well as sharing this information in real time through local network.
  • Database management. Groupware technology usually offers users a web-based access to online resources, as well as a real-time access to resource stored locally on a server machine. The popular client-server technology includes two components : the server and the client . Users can access database over local network as well as over Internet. Client-server software supports database management tools.

When talking about disadvantages , usually the following two items are mentioned:

  • Too many features. Any collaborative solution has a great number of tools and options and its advanced functionality sometimes becomes a stumbling stone for users. The way to mitigate the effect of this disadvantage of groupware is to design a user-friendly and customizable interface that allows hiding inactive options and tools to get the most convenient and simplest view.
  • Technical support. Due to complexity of components, inexperienced users often do not understand the questions “ what is groupware database ” and “ what are services ”, so they may feel confused all the time while using client-server software. The way to mitigate the effect of this disadvantage is to provide users with excellent tech support services.
