Unison Groupware Demo Now Available
Unison is a groupware product first presented at Cebit 2008 that combines PBX telephony, a groupware server, instant messaging and directory services with its own Windows client. An online trial version is available for anyone interested in the product.
US software vendor Unison has thus produced a genuine alternative to Exchange. Unison runs on Linux servers and supports both Web access and its own native client. The client is already available as a full-fledged replacement for Outlook on Windows systems with a native Linux groupware client due to follow: “We should have a version of our Linux client available by late summer” Chief Marketing Officer Rurik Bradbury revealed to Linux Magazine.
Standard groupware functions such as email, address book and calendar are just the start, says Bradbury: Unison also offers IP and PBX telephony, synchronization with mobile devices, instant messaging and in office/out of office display, directory integration: a MySQL database and integrated anti-virus and anti-spam software round off the feature set.
