A friend of mine recommended that I look into GroupWare applications
for our problem. I have to admit that I don't really know much about this
topic and I'm also not familiar with Exchange. Maybe someone could
tell me if GroupWare/ Exchange can help solve our problem.
Our company is a small start-up, using PCs which are connected via a
hub. There is no dedicated server. We have internet access via a dial-
Right now we have a huge Excel spreadsheet that contains large amounts
of research data. Information is added to this spreadsheet by several
individuals at our company and at a second company that we work with.
The spreadsheet is being e-mailed back and forth between the two companies.
It is difficult to figure out who has the latest version and sometimes
we end up with different copies with different information in it.
What I would like to have is one version of the spreadsheet on a computer
that can be accessed by everybody involved. Also, several people should be
able to make modifications at the same time.
Is Exchange suitable for this kind of a problem and how would it work?
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
