GroveSite was founded on the knowledge that existing collaboration tools lacked the flexibility, affordability, and responsiveness needed to meet the emerging needs of organizations. With the advent of cell phones, laptops, and widely-available internet access, working teams were becoming more dispersed. Organizations were increasingly looking to form partnerships and strategic alliances to pool talent, move product and ideas, and increase efficiencies. Existing collaboration solutions were complex, expensive and required intensive implementations. GroveSite stepped in to provide an easy, fast, and affordable solution to organizations, regardless of size.
