Collaborative Tools have become a necessity in any business to dramatically increase productivity in teams. Techworks can implement and develop tools such as SharePoint, and integrate tools like, Web Based Tools, Instant Messaging, Video and Data Conferencing, etc.

The intent of Collaborative Tools is to transform the way documents and rich media are shared in order to enable more effective collaboration and team work.
Examples of these tools are application programs such as SharePoint, Web Based Tools, Instant Messaging, Video and Data Conferencing, etc.

Collaboration technologies deliver the functionality for many participants to augment a common deliverable. Record or document management, threaded discussions, audit history, and other mechanisms designed to capture the efforts of many into a managed content environment are typical of collaboration technologies.

Examples of Collaborative Tools include:

-Web-based collaborative tools
-Software collaborative tools
-Knowledge management tools
-Knowledge creation tools
-Information sharing tools
-Collaborative project management tools

Electronic communication tools send messages, files, data, or documents. Examples are: Synchronous conferencing, E-mail, Faxing, Voice mail, Wikis, Web publishing, Revision control, Electronic conferencing tools,

Electronic conferencing tools facilitate the sharing of information, but in a more interactive way. Examples include: Instant Messaging,  Telephony (telephones allow users to interact), Videoconferencing(networked PCs share video and audio signals), Data conferencing(networked PCs share a common whiteboard that each user can modify), Application sharing(users can access a shared document or application from their respective computers simultaneously in real time), Electronic meeting systems (EMS)(originally these were described as "electronic meeting systems," and they were built into meeting rooms. These special purpose rooms usually contained video projectors interlinked with numerous PCs; however, electronic meeting systems have evolved into web-based, any time, any place systems that will accommodate "distributed" meeting participants who may be dispersed in several locations).

Collaborative management tools facilitate and manage group activities. Examples include: Electronic calendars (also called time management software — schedule events and automatically notify and remind group members), Project management systems(schedule, track, and chart the steps in a project as it is being completed), Workflow systems(collaborative management of tasks and documents within a knowledge-based business process), Knowledge management systems(collect, organize, manage, and share various forms of information), Enterprise bookmarking(collaborative bookmarking engine to tag, organize, share, and search enterprise data), Extranet systems (sometimes also known as 'project extranets' — collect, organize, manage and share information associated with the delivery of a project (eg: the construction of a building), Social software systems(organize social relations of groups), Online spreadsheets(collaborate and share structured data and information)
