Teamware is a software solution used for supporting the development of knowledge in the organization. Its essence boils down to computer-aided teamwork and communication. The use of computers and specialized software makes it easier to solve complex problems much faster and more efficiently.

Computer-assisted forms of teamwork are aimed at arranging meetings between members of the project group in time and space and the use of various tools to facilitate communication. It is primarily about forms of communication such as computer-assisted meetings, presentations, teleconferencing and videoconferencing, e-mail, databases and Internet.

Teamware, and other collaboration software (groupware, communication software, shared calendars) facilitates cooperation between staff of different organizational units because it overcomes the resistance and allows free exchange of information and ideas between team members, eg. in projects. Suitable software and access to a network allows members of intense dialogue and above all reduces the time to solve the problem and improving the quality of decisions.
