IceWarp GroupWare Server – Collaboration Software for Business

IceWarp GroupWare Server is fully integrated into IceWarp Unifed Communications Server & gives users, departments & entire organizations the power to collaborate intelligently & effectively. This is made possible through real time synchronization & anytime/anywhere access to information, including Shared Address Books, company Calendars, Tasks, Files, Journals & Notes, over the web, at your desktop, or on your mobile device.

Manage Company Calendars, Company Address Books, Tasks, Resources, and Meeting Invitations

Through support of open standards, IceWarp GroupWare Server allows users to schedule & manage events & company resources. Supported standards include Internet Calendars, Free/Busy lookup, & iMIP for Outlook ® compatible calendar invitations. Users can also manage Address Books, Calendars, Tasks, Files & Journals, syncing data with IceWarp WebClient, Outlook ®, IceWarp Desktop Client & mobile devices.

Resource Scheduling

With any calendaring client that can handle meeting invitations (WebClient, Outlook, Desktop Client, Apple iCal, Thunderbird), users can also manage conference rooms and shared resources like cars or office equipment. They add the pre-defined resource as an attendee to a new event, suggesting the time according to displayed availability. Subject to approval from preset resource manager, the user is sent an accepted/declined notification and the event is marked in their calendar.

Sharing Data With Groups & Public Folders

Through public folders, IceWarp GroupWare Server data can be shared across the entire organization, among groups, & between individuals. Shared address books can be set as a Global Address List (GAL) providing a company contact directory that is centralized & automatically populated. Each user can manage their individual contact information, which simplifies management, promotes efficiency & keeps contact information up-to-date. Shared Calendars can also be set easily for companywide, departmental, or group Calendars to allow the members to easily keep track of events & important meetings.

User-to-User Sharing

Through flexible permissions, users have the ability to share Email, Address Books, Calendars, Files, Tasks, Journals & Notes, with other IceWarp GroupWare Server users. Highly granular control includes Read, Write, Modify, & Delete permissions that can be set. Users are alerted through email notifications that they have been granted access rights to a folder by one of their colleagues.

Simple File Storage & Sharing

Using IceWarp GroupWare Server, users can save & access important files as if they were accessing them on a local drive or network share. Access is enabled through IceWarp WebClient, Microsoft Outlook or through a network drive via the Windows desktop. Files folders & contents can be shared out to users or groups allowing for easy & seamless collaboration across your organization.

SmartDiscover for Easy Deployment to Users

End users only need to know their username & password, simplifying deployment of client software. IceWarp SmartDiscover handles the rest, automatically providing access to Calendars, Contact & any other IceWarp Groupware Server data, also IM settings, & SMTP/POP3/IMAP server configuration. Compatible clients & mobile devices can be easily configured without user interaction.

Multi-Platform Design

Multi-Platform Design

IceWarp GroupWare Server includes a unique implementation of CalDAV Server, designed to support a broadest set of available desktop & mobile applications. This is achieved through an innovative combination of the WebDAV, GroupDAV, CardDAV & CalDAV protocols. Supported clients include Apple iCal/Address Book, Mozilla Thunderbird/Sun­bird, Novell Evolution & last but not least, the native IceWarp Desktop Client. This wide, cross platform, support means that no matter what or how your users need to access their IceWarp GroupWare data, even shared Calendars, or Shared Address Books, it is easy.
