A war room allows you to have a private environment for all the collaborators associated with a particular project. In each room you will find a get chat, file sharing area, interactive, shared notepad, and integrated, multiuser video chat.

If your staff and/or projects are scattered over a wide geographical area, war rooms could be just the tool you need to improve their communication and productivity.

Check out and create your own war room to try it out with your collaborators.
