Messaging & Online Collaboration: LABS GALLERY: Liaise Leverages Outlook for Project, Task Management
There are many systems available today that are designed to help workers manage tasks and projects, ranging from classic project management platforms to portals to SAAS-based business collaboration tools. But nearly all of these applications force users to leave the collaboration platform in which they are most comfortablenamely, e-mail. Liaise, a new product that debuted at the recent DEMOfall show, addresses this by letting users stay in e-mailbuilding tasks and action items based on what a user types in an e-mail. But while Liaise is intriguing, the current beta is still fairly limited and works only as a Microsoft Outlook plug-in.
