About Group Office

Group Office is a collaborative software, customer relationship management and document management system developed using PHP. With the release of Group Office 4.0 in 2012 the PHP framework was completely rewritten using the Model View Controller design pattern. It is a dual license commercial/open source groupware released under the AGPL/proprietary license. The product was created by a Dutch company called Intermesh and is available in two versions. The open source version is called Group Office Community and is available on Sourceforge for download. Group Office Community features include email, calendar, file sharing address book, task management, notes and newsletters. The commercial version of the product is called Group Office Professional and includes some additional features like help desk, time tracking, mobile sync, project management and document editing. Some separate add-ons like billing and document search are also available.

If you want to get a full Group Office review you can download it and go through the installation process on your own server, or you can get the cloud version hosted at Intermesh. Following recommendations you should know that you will need a LAMP environment and a Linux system software. However, it also runs on other Unix systems, including BSD Unix, and Mac OS X.
