Solutions for educational institutions

IT infrastructure integration

Especially for schools, educational institutions and research facilities, easy integration into the existing IT infrastructure is extremely important.

The great advantage of EGroupware is the simple integration into existing systems such as LDAP or Active Directory. This makes administration easier, as it is possible to build on the existing rights management. Alternatively, EGroupware can also be used in the German cloud. Enjoy the advantages of EGroupware, which does not require installation on a PC.

All you need is a browser to access your emails, calendar, tasks and resource management. EGroupware offers you an extensive possibility of appointment and file management.

Rooms, Cars & Equipment Hire

With the Resources module from EGroupware, you can very easily plan the rental of laboratory equipment, vehicles or even meeting rooms. 

Many universities can use EGroupware to provide their students with an electronic allocation plan of resources. This simplifies the organisation and makes cumbersome notices or outdated lists unnecessary. In the process, students or lecturers can directly see when certain rooms and equipment are booked or available. This facilitates administration and organisation at educational institutions.

Students or pupils can, if desired and approved, request the resources directly or book them themselves. Depending on the workflow, a final release by a person responsible for these resources is also possible.

File exchange in work groups

EGroupware enables file exchange in working groups and projects – distribution of working materials. The file manager for lecturers and students a platform for exchanging documents.

Especially in the days of Corona, distributing work materials and collecting homework was a big issue. This can also be easily solved with EGroupware.

EGroupware manages all these documents transparently via the integrated file manager. Every member of your work group thus always has access to the current data. You can also give participants outside EGroupware access to these files via sharing link: reading, writing or opening with Collabora Online.
