Groupboard Designer Advanced Shared Online Whiteboard


Groupboard Designer is an advanced online whiteboard which can be used from any web browser that supports HTML5 (including the iPad and iPhone) with no downloads required. It can be operated either standalone, as a tool for marking up changes and saving them for other people to see, or it can be used in multi-user mode where multiple users can work on a design in real-time.

With the ability to import AutoCAD DXF files, gif, jpeg, png, tiff, ppt, xls, doc and pdf background images, you can show a potential design to a customer and mark it up online, in real-time.

Groupboard Designer has been used by designers and architects for collaborative design sessions since 2001. For more details see our customers page.
