WORKPLACE COLLABORATION: Cloud-Based Collaborative Work Management Premieres
Recent Gauteng Business News
Mindjet, the company that improves how people work together, has announced new Mindjet Connect collaborative work management software to help groups working toward common goals get more done. Mindjet Connect is a cloud-based service that helps groups visualise their best ideas and plans, securely manage and share files, get teams on the same page and access information anywhere, at any time.
Forresters Rob Koplowitz indicated in his 2011 report that 43 percent of information workers work from multiple locations over the course of a month, and that 42 percent work outside of the corporate firewall. Work is decentralised, moving faster and likely to keep changing at a rapid pace to keep up with the similarly frenetic pace of change in communications, business and technology. Mindjet Connect addresses the needs of this changing workforce.
The Necessity of Collaborative Work Management
Work today is different. Individuals and teams are overloaded, increasingly virtual and knee deep in unstructured information, resulting in a lack of clarity, accountability and action, said Scott Raskin, Mindjet CEO. Mindjet Connect goes beyond document management and file sharing, and includes a powerful way to visualize information that provides faster insight and better results.
Collaborative Work Management Moves to Social Media
Mindjet also announced the acquisition of Cohuman (www.cohuman.com), a social task-based web service that keeps teams in sync by making information more people-centric, organised and transparent. With social aspects similar to Facebook and Twitter, Cohuman gives people the ability to better coordinate with colleagues on projects and tasks.
Where Mindjet Connect collaborative work management helps teams get on the same page, Cohuman helps teams stay on the same page, said Raskin. The combination of Cohuman and Mindjet Connect will further Mindjets vision to help people work better, together.
