How are you hoping to use Chandler in your company?
Today, Chandler is optimized to serve small-groups working closely
together. Which isn't to say that a large company can't use Chandler
since even large companies are comprised of lots of small groups ;)
However, Chandler isn't really meant to function like centralized bug
databases, contacts directories or document-sharing systems where
hundreds if not thousands of people all need to access the same
Learning a bit more about the problems your company needs solutions
for will help me answer your question.
