It is possible to build on it, producing and selling a customized version or even starting a hosted service, all using the same code.
Flexibility is a critical factor that differentiates Open Atrium from other intranet software. It can be run anywhere and everywhere, even behind a firewall. It also can be set in up to 4 languages (English, Spanish, Arabic and Urdu).
Open Atrium’s user experience can be defined as a “zen garden.” The way it was designed makes creating, customizing, and participating in groups a breeze, paired with its excellent and lovely graphic design, it makes the whole experience user friendly.
Open Atrium allows users to coordinate on projects with fellow employees by using the different sections of its interface like the dashboard, project spaces, private messaging or collaborative calendars.
