What is groupware?
Groupware is a type of computer software that enables individuals to collaborative work on projects through shared Internet interface to communicate within the group. Groupware enables you to manage your mails, all your contacts, different calendars and their tasks, synchronize them between your devices comfortably in the shortest possible time. All your data can be shared within the workgroup, with or without write access.
Our customers have high demands on collaborative business work. To make their collaboration easier we offer two product lines – One is based on Microsoft technology such as Microsoft Exchange Server and the other is an open source based software Zimbra Collaboration Suite.
Microsoft Exchange Server
Microsoft Exchange Server is a mail server and calendaring server developed by Microsoft. Exchange Server is licensed both in the forms of on-premises software and software as a service. In the on-premises form, customers purchase client access licenses (CALs). In the software as a service form, Microsoft receives a monthly service fee instead.

It provides the latest version of Exchange ActiveSync (EAS), which allow your users to sync their entire Mailbox, Calendar, Contacts and Tasks in their Mobile Devices such an iPhone, iPad, Android, etc. This option allow as well to connect Microsoft Outlook using EAS.
