Groupware, also known as collaborative software, is the foundation of computer supported cooperative work (CSCW). This software helps distributed users on a network work together.

Groupware normally comprises e-mail, a group calendar, task management capabilities, a document management system, allowing shared access to documents, and software for monitoring workflows and coordinating and keeping track of ongoing projects.

Groupware promotes efficient cooperation in your teams

Groupware has established itself as an integral part of modern office communications. The term was coined from "Group" and "Software" and is used to refer to any kind of collaborative software solution that makes work processes in teams simpler and more efficient. Ideally, Groupware is used where people have to work around spatial and temporal distances, for example, when common appointments have to be coordinated, tasks have to processed or contacts and addresses have to be managed. Typically, Groupware solutions include programs such as those used for e-mail, appointment scheduling, document management, databases and much, much more.
