Collanos Workplace 1.3
Collanos today released Collanos Workplace 1.3 (site down at publish time), an update to the cross-platform collaboration software that is thoroughly optimized with extended teamwork functions. The latest release includes a Team Instant Messenger environment, and allows team members to share results with other team members across any supported platform as quickly as similar server-based applications, according to the company. Collanos Workplace 1.3 is available for free (system requirements were unavailable).
The update boosts the technology driving its peer-to-peer platform, while a new task management function allows users to view as well as track and maintain all tasks across their workspaces.
"The extensions of the peer-to-peer technology allow Collanos partners and service providers to offer value-added services," said Franco Dal Molin, president and CTO of Collanos Software. "These offerings include persistent, secure and reliable data storage, permanent team synchronization and the possibility to access workspace content from the browser. Messaging is planned to be augmented with team messaging and voice/video functionality. As in task management, other relevant team work tasks will be supported Workplace-wide, for example, in the form of team calendars and other tools for planning and change management."
