Background Of Virtual Enterprise Business Network

A VPN requires its own Private Member Collaboration System (PMCS) to exchange information and to develop its projects and offers. The virtual team is a group of persons working across links strengthened by information, communication and transport technologies who interact through mutually supporting tasks guided by a common purpose. The members use technology to work together and to fulfill a task that requires the participation of each member, even when they are parts of different organizations, are separated geographically or have different working hours. They will use extensively computer mediated communication to permit remote members to synchronize their personal efforts and inputs.
