Project Management web based
to communicate and collaborate
Collaboration tools and Project Management web based solutionsaim the same goal: to make people work together, whatever where the are located,through virtual workplaces on the net.
Two main categories of tools can be considered according to their relation with time management:
- some work on a synchronous mode: to have to coincide in time
- other are schedule free
Synchronous collaboration solutions
In this category we place all the conference tools: audio, video, web conferencing including VoIP solutions
Asynchronous collaboration solutions
The paradigm of the category is obviously the e-mail, as it breaks the other limitation in communication: the time or more precisely the need to synchronize schedule. But e-mail is only the transport, you need a place to stock the information. If you do it on your disk space or a local server, are you sure that your documents are the last issue ?
When you collaborate in a Business environment, and especially within a Project frame, you will save headhaches if you can garantee that everybody access the same information and the same status at any time.
Whatever the kind of information you have to manage, you will find a solution to manage it on a web based central repository: schedules, contracts, minutes of meeting, specifications, configured documentation, tests results, product sheets...
