Lotus Quickr software provides online team spaces where members can share
and collaborate, and use team calendars, discussion forums, Web logs (blogs),
wikis and other collaboration tools for managing projects and creating
content. Lotus Quickr is designed to transform how teams share everyday
business content and work together online. And it leverages many existing
applications and content storage systems.
