The collaboration market has grown rapidly over the past few years, with many companies trying to grab a slice of an ever-expanding pie. The result of this healthy competition is that there’s now more choice than ever before: from hosted enterprise systems like Microsoft Sharepoint and Cisco Quad; to full-featured collaboration web apps like Socialtext and PBworks; to tools that concentrate on specific aspects of group work, such as Redliner and doingText, which help teams to collaborate on documents. There are apps for nearly any type of collaborative task you can imagine with solutions to suit every budget.
As WebWorkerDaily readers tend to be on the cutting edge when it comes to collaboration tools and technologies, I’m curious to know what software you’re using today. So, please share your favorite apps in the comments, and explain why it is that you’ve chosen them.
