Collaborative work is a work-sharing concept made possible by the Internet
. Collaborative work means that people in different locations and time zones can work on the same project. This collaborative work of people from sometimes different countries or continents is made possible by the use of shared servers, conference systems and communication software such as Skype. Collaborative work enables a more efficient organization of work and uses, for example, expert knowledge from different countries and integrates it into the project work in real time.
