"Comindwork" is short for "collaborative mind work." Like most project management software, it provides a number of features that help keep projects organized: users are able to monitor a project's progress, create to-do lists, produce reports, share information among themselves and with clients, and assign specific tasks to project members or groups. It also keeps track of a project's history.
The "ideals" behind Comindwork include customizability, visually appealing presentation of information, the use of wikis to promote straightforward communication, and simplicity. Comindwork is currently available in version 2.0, and the company is currently working on a 2.2 version that seems mostly aimed at expanding and deepening the program's current features.
Comindwork comes in two varieties, a "hosted plan," which keeps your project information on a remote server, and a "self-hosted plan," which allows you to store the information on your company's own internal servers. The second option allows more control, but is also more expensive, and it requires a certain amount of server capacity. Comindwork is 100% web-based. Using it requires only an internet connection and a web browser. It is compatible with Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, or Google Chrome.
Comindwork specifically targets client companies that it describes as "knowledge-intensive" and those that "actively produce nontangible products." This includes, for example, IT companies, consulting firms, nongovernmental organizations, advertising agencies, and research and development groups.
The monthly cost for Comindwork's hosted plans is scaled based on the amount of data needing to be stored and/or the number of users in the organization. Therefore, it is flexible enough to be used by both large and small businesses. Comindwork offers a free hosted service designed to be sufficient for a single project. This offer can be used as a trial to see if its service fits your company's own particular needs. There is also a 21-day free trial for those wishing to test out the self-hosted version.
