Grouputer Virtual Workshops Go Beyond Web Conferencing

Grouputer is an advanced e-collaboration programs that accelerates and improves decision making and learning in local and distributed workshops, meetings, surveys and training.
The Grouputer application solves the problem of formulating and documenting complex plans in virtual workshops by combining standard web conferencing tools with GDSS (Group Decision Support System) tools in a single software application.
Customers describe Grouputer as “web conferencing on steroids" because it enables complex planning to be conducted in virtual workshops that would otherwise require lengthy and expensive face-to-face meetings.
While web conferencing tools enable information and expertise sharing in presentations, documents and the web, GDSS tools actively engage participants in collaborative critical thinking activities achieving better solutions, with buy in and commitment.
Ideas from team members are recorded in text and processed using problem solving and planning methods such as agenda setting, brainstorming, categorizing, prioritizing, evaluation and action planning.
Formatted reports document workshop output ready for immediate distribution. A Process Builder is available to template meeting methodologies and training programs for repeat use and corporate consistency.
According to Gartner, when web conferencing tools are combined with GDSS meeting performance is enhanced and there are fewer dysfunctional meetings.
Fortune 500 companies, Defence, and consultants use Grouputer in intensive planning projects in real time or at times convenient to participants.
Customer applications include business and process improvement, Six Sigma/Lean, risk and project management and strategy development for sales, marketing, HR, information technology and operations.
Grouputer offers program and application security and is available as a hosted service and perpetual licence.

  2. 2. What is Grouputer?  Advanced e-meeting data collaboration software application  Integrated suite of tools including:  Group Decision Support System (GDSS)  Web Conferencing  Surveys & Voting  Process methodology authoring  Underlying paradigm  “Collaborative decision making, planning and problem solving to deliver best practice in virtual and face-to-face meetings and workshops”© 2012 Grouputer Pty LimitedAll Rights Reserved
  3. 3. How does GDSS differ from Web Conferencing?  Web conferencing programs (e.g. Adobe Connect) are more aligned with a “one-to-many” “presenter- centered” model  GDSS data conferencing is founded on interactive collaboration around a shared topic e.g. problem solving or planning activity  Gartner analyzed differences between GDSS (a Grouputer core competence) and Web Conferencing using Adobe as the example. Believes a hybrid application combining GDSS and Web Conferencing is best solution.© 2012 Grouputer Pty LimitedAll Rights Reserved
