Description

Overview

"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.

Technology

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.

Who Would Be Interested in Comindwork's Solutions?

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.

Distinctive Features

  • Project team members may post to and read project-related blogs, providing an avenue for informal communication within the team and allowing everyone to stay continuously up to date, as well as share new ideas and suggestions.
  • Users can receive email and RSS notifications when documents are edited, so that everyone can know immediately when a change has been made.
  • Requirements can be placed on wiki pages, where they can be read and discussed by all. This will cut down on problems such as contradictory requirements.
  • Project managers, team members, and clients can all track the progress of a project, including any recent or upcoming milestones. Projects will therefore be more transparent for everyone involved.
  • Clients' comments are tracked, so that customer feedback is never lost in the shuffle.
  • Users can import and export data to and from other collaboration systems (a feature that is scheduled to be expanded in the upcoming version 2.2).
  • The interface is highly customizable, allowing you to insert the company logo and choose a color scheme, for example. As noted above, Comindwork seems particularly interested in visual attractiveness.
  • An affiliate program provides customers with bonuses when they refer others to Comindwork.
