Formativ Features & Benefits
With Formativ, customizing GroupWise is easy! Developers, power users and even casual users can develop solutions.
GroupWise Working the Way You Do
Most people agree that it is not practical to develop a software product which, out-of-the-box, satisfies the needs of every user. GroupWise, while one of the most comprehensive, secure and reliable collaboration products on the market, is no exception.
If you have a specific GroupWise requirement, which is not ‘in-the-box’ nor addressed by another third party product, what do you do?
Perhaps you could adapt your business process to conform to existing GroupWise features. Or you could try to customize GroupWise to work the way you do.
Most users, if offered the choice, would choose to make the software work the way they do. Unfortunately, most people don’t realize that this option is available.
With Formativ, easy, cost-effective GroupWise customization is a reality.
GroupWise Customization Made Easy
Whether you are a GroupWise user, administrator, developer, integrator or VAR, Formativ’s design makes GroupWise customization easy.
The Formativ product suite offers a comprehensive solutions environment. It addresses GroupWise enhancement at solution, development and management levels.
Customizing GroupWise can be as simple as choosing from the expanding range of pre-written Formativ solutions. Email stationery, personalized mass email, address book printing, multiple signatures and templates are just a few examples of what’s available. With Formativ’s modular approach, you can continue to add as many GroupWise enhancements as required.
Should a pre-written Formativ solution not meet your needs, it is often possible to create one quickly using Formativ’s integrated development tool. Whether you need to integrate with desktop applications, such as Word or Excel, develop custom forms, create workflow solutions, or integrate via SQL to enterprise databases such as Oracle, the Formativ development environment offers rapid solution delivery.
For administrators, deploying and managing Formativ solutions within the enterprise is easy. Automated software distribution applications, such as ZENworks can be used to distribute Formativ ‘applet’ files.
