Groove is collaboration software that allows project teams to work together in a more efficient manner. How? Below are some of its features:
So, should you use Groove 2007 or SharePoint for collaboration? Groove 2007 is designed for small teams working on project-driven activities and collaborative business applications from any location even when they are offline. Windows SharePoint Services is a centralized system where work gets published and, broadly shared among a larger team of people or the entire organization. Windows SharePoint Services also enables you to search data and integrate with structured business applications. The two products are also highly complementary. Groove 2007 client works with the backend of Windows SharePoint Services and Office SharePoint Server. This combination provides the power of a centralized infrastructure with a decentralized rich client. With SharePoint Files tool, you can synchronize or check out files from a SharePoint document library, collaborate on and revise the files among a small team within a Groove workspace, and then publish the final documents back to SharePoint for structured reviews or long-term storage.
