More exciting TeamCentral functionality is on the way
Minneapolis (PRWEB) November 12, 2008
Riverock Technologies, developers of the OnePlace™ team collaboration and work management system, today announced it has added new social-media functionality to its online software, allowing teams of workers to better communicate and get things done.
"Social media is gaining wide popularity as a way for online professionals to collaborate in their daily work lives, with tools like Twitter and Yammer seeing rapid adoption," said Steve Kickert, Riverock CEO. "But now, instead of team members having to rely on such stand-alone social-media tools, we've integrated key functions right into our online work-management system."
The new "TeamCentral" feature announced today is immediately available to all users of the OnePlace™ system at no additional cost. New users may sign up for a free 30-day trial of the system at info.oneplacehome.com.
Putting Social Media to Work
A key component of the new feature is called "TeamPulse," which is a Twitter-like way to communicate continuously with your team members. A "pulse" is equivalent to a Twitter "tweet" (or update), but private for only your team members. And, unlike Twitter, it is not limited to 140 characters, giving team members more flexibility for work-related tasks and projects. An important additional function of the TeamPulse feature is this: it automatically "pulses" on your behalf when you start or complete a task (that is, when you mark a task as "In Progress" or "Complete" within OnePlace™). In this way, all team members automatically get notified and stay in-the-know continuously about project status, in real time. "More exciting TeamCentral functionality is on the way," said Kickert, "including the ability to view your team's schedule, and their recent activity."
