In a nutshell we want to empower managers and individual work contributors by enabling them to focus on the execution of their work rather than on spending time updating and communicating the status of their work”, said Jas Dhillon, an investor in UnaWave
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 19, 2010
UnaWave, a new start-up company supporting the Google Wave APIs, announced a smart new work management platform that will impact the way tasks and projects are managed on-line. The company was recently launched and includes key talent Henry Min, Founder of M, an interactive design and technology services firm and Brian Nenninger, Technical Architect at White Fence, a home services technology firm among others.
The UnaWave Work Management Platform was developed on the breakthrough Google Wave collaboration framework and is believed to be the next killer “business application” that will truly showcase the power of Google Wave.
At Google I/O, UnaWave will demonstrate their new product as part of the Developer Sandbox supporting Google Wave. It will solve pain points experienced by tens of millions of business professionals every day, in all industries and make it dramatically easier for team leaders to manage groups of people working together to achieve a specific objective. Simple to complex projects, such as remodeling a home or writing a Web application can all be easily managed using the UnaWave work management system.
Prior to UnaWave the choices available to manage work assignments ranged from simple calendar based tasks to complex Gantt chart project management applications supporting dependencies and resource allocations. However, the vast majority of work falls somewhere in between and it typically involves a team leader creating a project, assigning tasks, getting status updates and then accessing and updating a status dashboard on the progress of all the tasks.
“In a nutshell we want to empower managers and individual work contributors by enabling them to focus on the execution of their work rather than on spending time updating and communicating the status of their work”, said Jas Dhillon, an investor in UnaWave, "It's also the first Social Task and Project Management system that we've seen in the marketplace."
UnaWave leverages Google Wave’s collaboration foundation with an elegant yet simple work management service that directly addresses a wide range of work management activities across businesses of all sizes. UnaWave empowers individuals, team leaders, and managers, in real time by:
- Simplifying the process of creating and assigning work assignments from the simple to the complex for team members, next door or on the other side of the world.
- Enabling team members to accept work assignments and update assignment progress.
- Integrating task status updates from multiple team members into easy to use dashboards that provide overall work (project) status.
- Reporting and sharing work status via embeddable work /project dashboards – all in real-time.
By leveraging the strengths of the Google Wave platform and connecting it to an easy to use application, the UnaWave work management and collaboration service makes the challenges of work assignments and status reporting a thing of the past.
