About GroupThinq

GroupThinq has been purposely developed to leverage the collective intelligence of an organization. Collective intelligence (CI) benefits the workplace as the shared or group intelligence that emerges from the collaboration, collective efforts, and competition of many individuals ranging from entry-level staff to executives results in a consensus of decision making. While group CI behavior is well documented in the fields of biology, ecology and sociology, GroupThinq is the first business application designed from the ground up to foster a productive business ecosystem employing CI.

The software includes: intelligent timesheets, project management tools, task management, vacation/sick tracking, expense tracking, invoicing, purchase orders, bills, and detailed reports on the company, projects, finances, and staff. The combination of these tools provides an integrated management and collective intelligence solution for the entire company. Smart notifications also link inter-office teams together, providing feedback at every stage of a project. GroupThinq also benefits university pro-practice courses by bringing the office environment of a consulting practice to the classroom.
