Who is it for?

OfficeLife is aimed at small and medium size businesses, ranging from 10 to 500 employees. It's not suited for smaller teams, because it's collaborative. Also, it's not meant for huge companies as those companies usually have enough resources to manage a lot of different dedicated, specialized pieces of software.
OfficeLife is for companies that want one tool, simple enough for everybody, and hackable, so it can fit your custom needs.
