(Phoenix, AZ May 26, 2005) –GroveSite (, the leading provider of easy collaboration software for cross-company project teams, has announced that Joseph McVicker, GroveSite CTO, has been invited to speak at the Collaborative Technologies Conference in New York, June 20-22, 2005.

McVicker will speak on "Who Needs IT? Simple Lightweight Applications You Can Use on Your Own." This session is targeted at business managers who may need a simple ad hoc solution either as a complement to or in the absence of IT supported applications. As part of his presentation, McVicker will demonstrate solutions commonly used by teams and small businesses.

"GroveSite is an intuitive collaboration tool that non-technical managers can use to collect, process and share information among far-flung team members," McVicker states. "We see our clients creating secure, web-based systems for customer relationship management, product design and development, help desk administration, permit tracking, and even online homework boards. Typically, GroveSite-based applications can be launched within days for only a few hundred dollars."

The Collaborative Technologies Conference 2005 helps forward-thinking IT and business professionals understand how technologies such as instant messaging, conferencing, shared workspaces, and VoIP can give their organizations a competitive advantage. The program addresses collaborative applications and the infrastructure required to support them, as well as the development of a cohesive strategy that fits your business needs, culture and goals.
