Tools for Group Work

Interesting, but how lazy do you have to be to call your inbox to check messages? The company also addresses help desk support, credit card fraud control and appointment services, all of which I understand a little better. I guess if your thumbs are tired of paddling that Blackberry, 800 Genie is the way to go.


Also of interest, LegiTime Technologies is addressing the smart phone management issue for power users of office software on the go. While Lotus Notes and Outlook help users better manage their daily routines, there really isn't a piece of software that does this for the mobile device.

The company's LegiText software looks to reduce inbox clutter by letting users categorize and create messaging groups on the fly for some serious mobile collaboration.


Speaking of collaboration, the morning session had no shortage of tools for group work. TimeTrade has created TimeDriver, which puts a button in e-mail and Web pages to let sales and support professionals schedule meetings with clients. This software could be a boon for people who are tired of the constant e-mail back-and-forth just to hash out meeting times.

Company officials invited and received confirmation for a meeting in four steps. Appointments flow into a Google or Outlook calendar taking their place seamlessly along other appointments.

Liquid Planner

Project management. Those two words tend to make eyes glaze over. LiquidPlanner's new project management software makes using software like Basecamp seem like boot camp, offering a reprieve from an older style.

While traditional project management tools are challenged to keep up with information, LiquidPlanner uses ranged estimates and scheduling based on probability to narrow down about how long a project will take.

It might not seem like a big deal, but being right in this space can save companies a lot of time and resources.
