What is collaboration software?
Collaboration software enables files, documents and other types of data to be shared, processed and managed between multiple users and / or systems. This type of software enables two or more remote users to work together on a task or project.
Collaboration-Software wird auch als kollaborative Software, Online-Collaboration-Software und Groupware designated.
Collaboration software is primarily used to improve productivity within a group of individuals and especially within organizations. This is achieved through the coordinated task processing and management functions provided by this type of program.
With collaboration software, users create a workspace at a time and add data and / or workflows. The created workspace is visible and accessible to all other users regardless of their physical location, and the workspace can be accessed by the primary user. All changes to the data or files are synchronized by the collaboration software for all users, so that it is ensured that everyone has the latest version of a running project.
In the case of cloud-enabled collaboration software, the same data is hosted and made accessible directly from the software host site. Lotus Notes, Microsoft Groove, and SharePoint are popular examples of collaboration software.
