GroupSwim is a leading provider of on-demand social software for businesses. Traditional means of collaboration - like emails, documents, and wikis - don’t allow for capturing or categorizing information in a consistent way. This results in noisy, redundant, and unorganized knowledge for companies that make sharing and discovery of information frustrating at best.

GroupSwim solves this problem by providing a Web 2.0 based user interface that captures collaborative work in many formats - discussions, emails, documents and wiki pages. What makes GroupSwim really different is the semantic technology running in the background. The software automatically tags and rates content (discussions, emails, documents, wikis), identifies experts by topic, and searches intelligently for content.

GroupSwim’s innovative use of intelligent collaboration technology provides unsurpassed ease-of-use and time-to-value. Customers use GroupSwim to increase revenue, lower costs, and bring their employees, customers, and partners together for unsurpassed productivity. Sales teams, professional services, and customer communities are examples of how to use GroupSwim to improve collaboration and increase productivity.

GroupSwim Community
Launch DateDecember 15, 2007

GroupSwim Community is ideal for external, customer-facing sites to provide a way for your customers to collaborate with you and each other. A vibrant customer community can be an asset for your business. It creates a high quality customer experience that engenders loyalty and customer satisfaction. It gives your customers a way to find answers quickly and share information with each other.

This easy-to-use forum can be stand-alone or perfectly blended into your website. You can tie it in with your existing portal using single sign-on, domain mapping, and professional skinning.

GroupSwim Community leverages the same semantic technology and Web 2.0 user interface as the Collaboration product. Single sign-on, branding and integration with other web properties and feeds are available.
