Join us to learn how easy it is to upgrade to GroupWise 2014, and how the switch can benefit you with more responsive, adaptable email.
Short video on Underwriters use of Groupwise.
GroupWise 2014 offers users flexible, dynamic email and calendaring that work the way they want to work. It also supports the platforms and devices admins need.
When a non-profit private university looked into so-called "free," cloud-based e-mail solutions as alternatives to GroupWise, the spreadsheet analysis was surprising. After doing the math, GroupWise came out on top in several categories. As Director of Information Technology for Millikin University, Pat Pettit is always looking for cost-efficient ways to improve IT services. When she installed GroupWise in 1996, it was because of the innovative features it included (for no additional cost), plus its low administrative burden and high scalability—ideal for a university environment. That's why, 16 years ago, Millikin became one of the first universities to offer e-mail as a standard application to everyone—faculty, staff and even students. Today, Millikin University offers an "e-mail address for life" at no cost to current students and alumni.
GroupWise 2014 takes one of the most reliable and secure email and collaboration solutions and updates it for today's communication challenges. The mobile and flexible GroupWise 2014 peacefully coexists with Active Directory and other email systems while helping your organization communicate with confidence, no matter where your people work.
