OrbiTeam Software GmbH & Co. KG was founded in 1998 with the aim of developing and marketing the BSCW shared workspace system, a web-based groupware tool for efficient collaboration.
The staff at OrbiTeam boasts extensive, in-depth knowledge in the planning and development of Internet-based applications and groupware systems. We continuously maintain and develop the BSCW system to ensure that the company is in a position to quickly and efficiently carry out custom modifications and enhancements.
As an IT enterprise, OrbiTeam Software GmbH & Co. KG is engaged in both product development and project activities. The company pursues not only basic research work that yields new underlying technologies over the medium term, but also applied research that leads to customer-based solutions in the short term. Through participation in scores of European research projects, OrbiTeam has developed a proven track record in successfully translating research activities into practical applications.
Reliable partner for 20 years
OrbiTeam works closely with the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology FIT, which has been engaged in the development of collaborative support systems for more than 20 years.
The central information system EnArgus (www.enargus.de) for the advancement of energy research provides project initiators, the government and the public uniform and centralized access to information regarding research activities in the area of energy in Germany. This platform thus helps to make government funding policies in the area of energy research more transparent.
The CloudTeams (www.cloudteams.eu) collaboration platform is an EU-sponsored project developed under the leadership of the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology FIT. The team platform component that is used by software developers is an adapted and enhanced version of the BSCW system.
