Collanos Workplace is a simple productivity tool to improve the workflow on projects.
The program is specifically focused on project management, and allows you to save all your material (emails, graphs, reports and the likes) into one place.
You can create multiple tabbed workplaces, which is a good way of separating your different projects yet having access to them anytime. Changes made to projects by anyone are immediately visible in the interface, as is the availability of team members.
Collanos Workplace is available for PC, Mac and Linux, so you can use it with any OS and still share project information with other team members.
Collanos Workplace can be used offline and will automatically syn new information as soon as you get back online. Another way to communicate is by using the Team Instant Messenger environment, represented by the discussions pane at the bottom.
The closed environment that is Collanos Workplace is its true strength and weakness. To be able to manage your projects and keep a solid organization it's important to have every team member and feature under one system.
However that also means you'll have to put up with all the tools, even if there are some you don't enjoy working with.
The application was easy to use, and I could see it being easily implemented to any organization.
However it did feel a little slow at times. Apart from the startup login, I was also a bit surprised not too find more security settings to protect your projects.
Collanos Workplace is an intuitive project management tool to handle and organize all your projects and keep in contact at all times with team members.
