Messaging and groupware software from Novell that provides a universal inbox for calendaring, group scheduling, task management, document sharing, workflow and threaded discussions. Whiteboards and application sharing are available through third-parties. GroupWise clients and servers run on all major platforms. GroupWise supports a wide variety of mail systems as well as Novell's NDS directory. Text-to-speech and speech-to-wave files let mobile users hear and create e-mail by telephone. Although entirely revamped, GroupWise stems back to WordPerfect Office, acquired by Novell in 1994.
