Is this the year that your small business makes a leap in its online capabilities? The availability of technology and dropping prices now make the option of using project management software more feasible than ever. Whether you have a company of three or three thousand, there’s no longer reason to avoid improving operations online. The StrikeBase cloud collaboration platform offers straightforward and comprehensive business solutions.
StrikeBase (www.strikebase.com) is a web-based project management and collaboration platform. Cloud storage enables easy desktop or mobile collaboration. Team members can communicate freely with each other as well as with clients. Project management tools make it easy for a business to coordinate efforts on multiple projects while maintaining a clean workflow.
Team members in small and medium-sized enterprises often uses multiple services such as Skype, Gtalk, Box, Basecamp, and Asana to collaborate on projects. These services were not always designed to work with one another. Incompatibility creates problems such as fragmented and redundant data, inability to search data across services, multiple user logins, and access complications for both administrators and users. StrikeBase looks to eliminate these issues by offering a comprehensive suite of applications that leverage the strengths of one another and work cohesively on a single platform.
