Kick off a team project or give your employees a shared workspace by creating a secure, internal Web site. Online collaboration breaks through the barriers of physical distance, uncompromising schedules or inclement weather and allows the team to work together any time anywhere. It’s a great way to boost productivity.
An internal Web site, also called an intranet or a portal, is a mini-version of the Internet. It creates a network of users that can access and manipulate a Web site unavailable to people outside that network. With a collaborative Web site, you can share documents and discussion threads, create message boards, track employee vacation requests, create inter-company classified ads and more.
