vJungle.com Offers Group Access to Services

vJungle.com Inc. recently launched an online groupware solution targeted specifically at small businesses.

It is a free Web-based service that offers access to common group service needs such as e-mail, calendar/scheduling functions and real time chat and messaging.

Businesses that sign up for the service receive a subdomain of the vJungle.com domain; i.e., yourbusiness.vjungle.com. Individual users can then receive their own e-mail address within this domain name, meaning that your business name can be part of your e-mail address.

Once logged into the service, team members have access to Web-based e-mail, scheduling and calendar functions, real time chat and instant "flash" messaging, contact managament, a pop-up note pad, and file sharing. In addition, an included wizard is designed to allow businesses to quickly establish their own Web site (again, accessible through their vJungle.com domain) by filling in information within predefined site templates.

vJungle.com is currently available for preview through its Web site. The full site is expected to roll out in January of 2000.
