Projecis 2.0 includes a re-designed user interface to promote quicker access to content and features, and home page access to Calendar, Recent Activity and To-Do Items for "At-a-Glance" update capability. Combined with key features such as unlimited storage, file sharing, VoIP meeting center, milestone-task tracking, "work-from-email" ability, document review, and contact management, Projecis allows companies and individuals to track projects and manage information effectively.
Projecis subscribers will now find an Activity area where project content actions generated by team members can be tracked; from posting files to generating issues to commenting on news, tasks and other items. Details on milestones provide a breakout of assignments required to achieve goals. Subscription members are better coordinated in the Projecis Workspace area, where members are easily assigned to projects with given roles and privileges, or can be deactivated from projects and designated as a "contact."
File features continue to be a strength of Projecis. Unlimited file storage is provided with any subscription, along with these features:
Share files among team members in a secure environment
Generate optional public URL to share files with those outside your team
Ensure your team is working on the most current file version
Keep track of file versions and maintain access to earlier versions
Monitor who reviewed and/or downloaded files and which version
File Review & Workflow:
Files can be placed in the Projecis review feature for approval or as part of staff training
"Projecis 2.0 raises the bar for project collaboration. It's more feature-rich than products like Basecamp, much less expensive than Office 365, and has communication features ignored by other systems," says Paul TanPiengco, head of business development at Projecis.
One Projecis client is the Public Health Alliance for Clinical Trials (PHACT), a non-profit group focused on testing drugs for delivery to the poorest regions in the world. "The Projecis platform allows our group to collaborate as a team on all our projects, which is especially advantageous since we have team members from around the world," says Ellen Morgan, president of PHACT. "We are able to distribute files more easily and securely, as well as communicate more readily with online chat and group discussions. It's more than a 'To Do' list, since we generate milestones and then associate assigned tasks and issues to each milestone for ease of tracking project goals. Projecis really increases our team effectiveness. We wouldn't want to work without this tool."
