Groopt, the leading provider of cloud-based collaboration and mobile productivity applications, launches Groopt Community at University of California, Irvine (UCI), providing 600 student organizations with online group networks to support campus-wide communication and collaboration.

Community offers universities, non-profits and other member-based organizations a secure online network where members can post messages, share files, vote and manage a shared calendar.

Having streamlined the onboarding process, organization can quickly and effortlessly connect their membership by sending Groopt a CSV (comma separated value) spreadsheet of their member information. Then, Groopt deploys their secure online network and invites their membership for free.

Groopt will create online groups for more than 600 campus organizations as well as a leadership network for all student group executives to share best practices and promote events.

On Monday, Oct. 22, Groopt Community will go live, enabling more than 10,000 students to connect through UCIs private online community.

Now groups have their own private and secure place to get things done. Patrick Allen, CEO and co-founder of Groopt

“Groopts customer service is second to none and response time is outstanding. Groopt Community has been very well received by undergraduates and alumni and has helped to strengthen our organization.” Gordy Heminger, President and CEO of Alpha Sigma Phi, current Groopt Community user
