In their ground-breaking group intelligence research from the 1980′s Dr. Jay Nunamaker (Univ of AZ) and our co-founders demonstrated that two key issues dramatically limit the performance of teams working on a common problem:
1) the negative impact of peer dynamics and;
2) the lack of structure in their collaboration
In addressing the results of their findings the group went on to research, test, and develop software designed to overcome these obstacles. In 1989, after significant, measurable success in both the lab and in projects with IBM and the US Navy, GroupSystems was launched as a commercial venture.
GroupSystems now supports the largest global customer base in Group Intelligence Technology and Software within Government, Military, Education and Corporate segments. The company’s extensive customer base represents roughly 75% market share of the Group Intelligence segment of collaborative computing, making the company as large as its next three competitors combined.
