Introduction to Chatter

Communication is important in every facet of life, this is especially true for a business organization.  To have the ability to connect and collaborate with everyone, no matter their physical location, is invaluable.  Chatter is a powerful tool that empowers users to connect, collaborate, share files, data, and expertise in real time.
