grammm in future grommunio, one of the most advanced open source solutions for communication and collaboration offers full digital sovereignty and complete compatibility with Microsoft Outlook and other random clients Whether on premises or in the cloud, with any client, the administrator and user have full control.
Why the name change? The success of grammm not only drew attention to the technology, it caught the attention of larger U.S. enterprises – namely Instagram. In negotiations, the desire arose to rethink the phonetic similarity between “Instagram” and “grammm”. grammm corresponds to this wish and therefore; Grammm becomes grommunio.
