SmarTeam Community Workspace is a web-based, project-oriented, collaborative portal that enables global product teams to collaborate on and manage product information easily, securely, and cost-effectively within their extended enterprise and across the supply chain, creating a true e-business on demand environment. Within unique web portals, virtual product development communities after passing through rigorous authorization collaborate on a defined set of data from within the SmarTeam database. Workflow participation is enabled through the SmarTeam - Workflow product.
By enabling online collaboration, SmarTeam Community Workspace brings e-Business across the extended enterprise and across the supply chain. The result is that companies leverage and extend their intellectual property with maximum flexibility, generating a true "e-Business on demand" environment.
