Diogo GouveiaProducts and Solutions Leave a Comment

Joint Ventures are a popular way to grow companies’ reach and presence in new markets. They bring together resources and skill sets to achieve a common goal, however, one of the biggest challenges can be maintaining effective communication across all stakeholders.

In this article, we discuss why IT admins should consider Exchange Server synchronization (eventually involving Gmail/Google Workspace as well) to help each participant in the joint venture stay on the same page in terms of calendar, making It easier to achieve success together. We will also discuss how to setup a shared folder and how to make sure participants have access to up-to-date contacts.

How Do I Share a Calendar Between Two Exchange Organizations?

One of the most critical aspects of Joint Ventures is ensuring that all team members are on the same page regarding meetings, appointments, and deadlines. Calendar synchronization is an essential tool that can simplify this process and streamline communication, ultimately enhancing productivity and teamwork.

At Connecting Software, we offer CB Exchange Server Sync, an expert solution for Microsoft Exchange Server synchronization. CB Exchange Server Sync is designed to automatically synchronize emails, calendars, contacts, tasks, and notes across multiple Exchange accounts, and it can work between different domains, different Office 365 tenants, or even two different forests.

With CB Exchange Server Sync, you can customize which items you want to synchronize and choose whether you want one-directional or bi-directional synchronization. This flexibility ensures that you have complete control over the information that is synchronized. This solution is perfect for Joint Ventures, as it ensures that all team members have access to the latest calendar information, allowing them to book meetings and appointments with ease.

Apart from calendar synchronization, it can also be beneficial for Joint Ventures to sync a shared folder or the Global Address List. A shared folder can act as a centralized hub for all project-related documents, ensuring that team members have access to the latest files and updates.

Specifically to address the syncing of the Global Address List, we offer CB GAL Sync, an add-on solution for CB Exchange Server Sync that allows you to synchronize the Global Address List across multiple Exchange servers. Syncing the Global Address List simplifies contact management and ensures that all team members have the same contact information. This solution is ideal for Joint Ventures that involve teams from multiple companies. Knowing you have the latest contact information without having to double-check, simplifies all daily procedures that involve contacts and ensures that everyone is on the same page.

Let’s start off with an option that allows you to synchronize your Exchange accounts which is mainly used when you have Exchange in combination with Outlook.

Exchange Server Synchronization in Joint Ventures – Use Cases

As we mentioned, CB Exchange Server Sync can synchronize:

  1. Exchange calendars: Using its advanced synchronization capabilities, CB Exchange Server Sync gives the project’s team members the ability to effortlessly integrate their Exchange calendars with the calendar of the Joint Venture account. By doing so, booking meetings becomes a breeze, as the Joint Venture’s Exchange calendar will accurately reflect the availability of each team member. This eliminates scheduling conflicts and enhances overall productivity, allowing everyone to focus on the main goal of the project.
  2. Exchange contacts: CB Exchange Server Sync simplifies contact management for Joint Ventures. Team members can add contacts from the Joint Venture Exchange account via one-directional synchronization, rather than having to add each other's contacts individually. This ensures the security of their information while also optimizing contact access and management.
  3. Exchange emails: If you want to create a centralized email and sync the messages of other accounts to it, that is also a possibility.
  4. Exchange tasks and notes: The same logic applies. Through the centralized Joint Venture Exchange account, tasks and notes can be seamlessly synchronized across all members of the project. Again, using one-directional synchronization, data becomes easily accessible without compromising anyone's privacy. This makes it so the project can run smoothly, and everyone is aware of the tasks that must be completed.
  5. Exchange public folders: If you happen to use Microsoft Exchange’s public folders, they can also be synchronized with CB Exchange Server Sync. Essentially, CB Exchange Server Sync can take care of any synchronization needs you may have. Say hello to streamlined efficacy and goodbye to time-consuming tasks that add no value to your workday!
