Traditional User Communication Experience

Traditional team communication happens when one team member reaches out to another to follow-up, touch base, synch up or just get on the same page. While this is necessary, valuable time is lost to "catching up" over email, phone or IMs. Furthermore, the context in which a team member initiates these conversations is limited to their own experience, workflow, needs, and goals.

A Team Communication Experience

Social Office remedies the limitations of traditional communication by providing an unbroken visibility of team activity so that each person's correspondence and relationships happen in the context of a shared collaborative effort. Not only does this cut down on the time needed for "synching up" and make time for more meaningful conversation, it shifts each person's focus from his or her own tasks to how these tasks fit into the bigger picture objectives of the team as a whole.


Work on documents right from within Social Office or open and save them from Microsoft Office®. Social Office takes care of version control and check-in/check-out. Users can add comments, ratings, and tags.


Integrated chat lets you discuss ideas while viewing assets online. Meanwhile, the activity feed keeps you up to date on team progress.


Assign tasks, create meetings, and share knowledge using built-in calendaring, task management, wikis, blogs, and more. Social Office brings collaboration into your daily routine without requiring extra steps.

Only by allowing everyone on your team to work in the right context can you begin to appropriately optimize its use of available tools. With members working in the context of a team, Liferay Social Office provides access to state of the art document sharing, knowledge sharing, and collaboration tools, all seamlessly integrated, to provide new advancements to they way you work.
