With a sleek new interface and amplified intuitive capabilities and expanded mobile support, users can be more productive no matter their location.

He believes that the stable on-premise software market growth could average between 5% and 6% in 2014. As data regulations and security concerns increase, GroupWise 2014 provides organizations with a secure, reliable and cost-effective solution that keeps data within IT control while improving workplace productivity for users at all levels of the organization.
