In August of 1998 the University of North Texas’ Center for the Study of Work Teams (CSWT) and Information Systems Research Center (ISRC) conducted a study of which collaborative technologies were actually being used by industry for virtual teaming. The study asked a variety of questions, including the following: 1) What collaborative tools are being used and for what purpose? 2) How frequently are they being used? 3) What percentage of the company population is using each tool? 4) Which collaborative tools are most widely used in industry? The survey instrument was pilot tested with CIO's from five large area companies. 138 surveys were mailed to over fifty companies; 35 usable replies from 30 companies were used in the final analysis. The results of portions of this survey are presented here.
