Titel / Title: A study on groupware choice in companies
Abstrakt Abstract:

This study addresses the issue of groupware choice in two different kinds of companies, IT- companies and industrial companies. Our main goal is to find out whether the companies? type effects the choice of groupware. We have conducted qualitative interviews as well as sent out quantitative questionnaire in order to fulfil our goals.

The result indicates that there is a connection between groupware choice and company type among the companies participating in our study. IT- companies tend to use single function groupware applications while industrial companies choose multifunction groupware applications. This can have a number of reasons, for instance that IT- companies want detached programs since they would not make use of all programs within a multifunction groupware application. It can also be that industrial companies want easier systems, that contain programs with a friendlier user interface.
