dc.description.abstract A significant technological change for many organizations over the next several years will be the advent of computing and communication networks. Local and wide-area networks will affect communication both within and outside any given locale. The ability to communicate is needed to perform services, share knowledge and skills in an increasingly complex business environment, and to increase consensus on controversial decisions. Recent management science research on the effect of computer networks on group communication has shown that the use of the technology opens up opportunities to improve interactions among individuals working together by using Group Support System (GSS). One of the most heralded features of GSS is its ability to democratize group processes. But in Bangladesh the communication system between the offices personnel is not very strong. In our survey we have found some lacking like low organizational efficiency, lack of proper reporting in work place, lack of proper monitoring etc. are very common in Bangladeshi organizations. After survey we designed and developed a basic GSS to bridge the gap between the ideal situation and the current situation. We implemented this system in several Bangladeshi organizations and tried to evaluate the impact of its implementation. The implications of these findings for research on GSS use are examined, and directions for future research are offered. Task management is a new technology for office work environment. This system offers the facilities for efficient and better working atmosphere. Our goal is to develop a system, which would be able to convert the manual method of an office management system into a computerized system. It will contain all the necessary information of office personnel maintaining the hierarchy of the office and also upgrade the daily activities. It will be a network based system. The interface is same for all users but the working environment is different. Each user will have individual password so that no one can invade anyone's personal space. The system will also provide a better time management. By the help of this system the user will also be able to keep track of their documents and manage them efficiently. This system will provide a great opportunity for office management system. en_US
