Today, the Internet is one of the most common and convenient ways to communicate, because it is very flexible and versatile environment with lots of potential capabilities for servicing business needs, for example sharing business data. Often, shared office solutions compete against their desktop analogs.

Background for the comparison
There are a lot of services ( solutions ) for managing business data of different types, and they are quite popular because of promising easiness and user's mobility. These solutions include solutions for different purposes, such as spreadsheets as alternative to Excel, shared online database to share business facts through the Internet, storages of documents and files for virtual project teamsetc. All kinds of spreadsheets, database s, folders and other services are united by the common requirement – necessity of Internet connection to be used. 

Among services widely offered on the Web there is a particular class of shared office solutions for task and time management – schedules for time planning in workgroups. Shared online calendars may appear really necessary when you need to coordinate agendas of multiple persons along with announcing some team events, conferences and other joint activities.

Let's compare online vs. schedules:
Besides online (web) systems, you can find calendar software that works within your corporate LAN, using your internal server, and doesn't need access to Internet. The point of this comparison is defining cases when it is preferable to use shared office calendar instead of shared online calendar, and vice versa.

Shared online calendar vs. shared office calendar

Shared online calendar – this kind of calendar system works through external web-servers, recording and storing your information into databases. There are some free calendars like Google. You can see and manage your schedules through your web-browser along with sharing them with users at any point of the world. The main demerit of even the best calendar is your dependence on the web connection, including all problems related to this (low speed of performance, remote server time-outs etc), doubtful security of your data, difficulties with uploading and reading documents and other. In other words online calendar is not a good solution for team working within one office, because shared office calendar works better.

Shared office calendar – it is standalone desktop software that can be deployed over your office LAN to operate through your inner server that interconnects users. Classic example of calendar is VIP Task Manager that synchronizes individual and team schedules through client-server connection. This tool with 30 days trial version features not only Calendar, but also versatile Task List and Task Tree. Shared office calendar is much more preferable in cases when all team members work within one network – this guarantees better corporate data security and protection along with higher speed of system performance supported by means of your local network.
