In our small office network we need many different types of communication. For example, we discuss general questions in public chats. We touch upon more specific topics in private chats. We send short immediate messages to each other through instant messengers. We publish some permanent office-wide messages on our message boards. All these types seem to be rather trivial. We would certainly like to have more complex possibilities, like a shared writing place where we could develop some schemas, or maybe file transfers, or even the ability to view each others desktop screenshots. Would you believe me if I said that all of these features, and even more, are available thanks to a single program? No? But its true!
All of us have Network Assistant installed, and you know what? Thats all we need for office-wide communication.
First of all, Network Assistant provides you with numerous ways for text-based communication, such as, a channel-based chat with public, password protected, available person-to-person channels, Win-Popup compatible instant messaging, and a Message Board. Also, there is a Shared Whiteboard for collaborative sketch painting and file-transferring ability. Moreover, the software has some cool remote computer features like clipboard viewing, taking screenshots, and process controlling. Network Assistant represents a server-less technology, which means the absence of Internet connection or a dedicated server inside the network.
