The Death of Email?

Date: 15 Jul 2003 - 15 Jul 2003

Venue: Mariott Hotel, Orchard Road, Singapore


Email is a great tool for back-and-forth messaging, but a time-killer when it comes to team discussions and joint document editing. There are a growing number of collaboration software packages which promise to enable efficient communications both internally and with customers and partner companies. Their importance has been underlined by the recent SARS outbreak that has disrupted business travel. Do these collaboration tools live up to their hype?


This seminar will outline numerous ways in which collaboration software can enhance a manufacturing or engineering services business. It will focus on improving electronic communications with external parties or between departments and highlight the strengths and weaknesses of different categories of software. There will be presentations by manufacturing experts, complemented by focused demonstrations from leading vendors in the field. Participants can expect to gain a broad yet balanced perspective on recent developments in a crucial area of business technology.

Target Audience

This seminar will be particularly appropriate for small to medium manufacturing or engineering services enterprises, but learning points will also apply to the wider industry. Attendance is strongly recommended for technology decision makers of all types, such as CEOs, business analysts and managers in IT, design and manufacturing.
