Groove 2007 features a results-oriented user interface that lets you manage and increase every team member's individual impact, simplify collaboration, streamline business processes and content management, and improve business insight. It also gives you access to a set of next-generation Web design tools, so you can deliver improved information management and teamwork solutions through a fully-integrated set of office utilities. It also gives you the option of working with new Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 capabilities, as well as Microsoft Office Communicator, to improve communication between members of your workgroup.
Quick and Easy Workspace Set-Up
Groove 2007 lets you easily create a new workspace right on your computer in just two clicks. Invite your colleagues and customers to join without worrying about networks or servers. Once you've established your workgroup, add tools to support your team's evolving needs: file-sharing, discussions, meetings, business forms, and more.
Stay Productive Online or Offline
All Groove workspaces, tools, and information are stored right on your computer so you can work productively anywhere you've got your laptop, whether you're connected to a network or not. Automatic synchronization keeps you and your team members up to date and you can update team information in the office, at a customer site, on the road, and from home.
Streamline Content Creation
Groove 2007 gives you the option to share, revise, and publish files all from a single workspace, so it's a snap to exchange document changes with your team members easily and efficiently. You can also use integrated alerts and contextual communication tools to shorten review cycles, or publish completed documents to SharePoint document libraries with one click for workflow, storage, and retrieval.
Out-of-the-Box Integration With Other Microsoft Programs
To help you access and share information stored in other applications, Groove 2007 lets you tap into Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, Microsoft Office InfoPath 2007, and Microsoft Office Communicator. Further enhance team collaboration by synchronizing an SharePoint Server 2007 or SharePoint Services 3.0 document library with Groove 2007. Seamlessly collaborate on files in Groove and then publish to SharePoint Server 2007 or SharePoint Services 3.0 when you're done. You can even import your InfoPath forms into Groove, which makes it easy to collect and track structured data in your team workspace, and export or synchronize results with enterprise systems. Finally, using the 2005 or 2007 versions of Office Communicator, you can make a phone call or start an instant messaging session from a Groove workspace.
