    Collaboration tools for small business


    by martinb ·

    I am currently exploring using collaboration and/or knowledge management software to improve teamwork of client accounts through out the office and remotely. Do any recommendations come to mind?


    A small office network (4-6 users) with DSL internet connection. I am looking for a shared/calendar solution and if possible an integrated shared/contacts solution.

      I use Mircosoft Small Business Server 2003 Standard Edition for things like this.

      You can get 5 user license which includes Exchange for shared/calendar using outlook 2003

      There is a Remote Web Workplace that allows the users to connect remotely using a number of differenet methods.

      I have used SBS 2003 in offices as small as 3 users.

      Yes it does require a server computer but for only a few users a standard computer with enough ram can handle it.

      The increase in productivity usually recovers the cost in less than a year.

      I can think of for such requirement.
      It has much more (Wiki, Blog, file repository, media repository, version controls and workflows)in built features including shared (Event) Calender.
