Live Documents - Office for the Internet Generation. Presentations, Spreadsheets, Word. The pre-eminent office productivity suite used by businesses worldwide is Microsoft Office - a set of twenty-year old applications that are still stuck to the desktop and have been completely untouched by the Internet zeitgeist. People still create documents on their desktop and use a variety of painful ways to share and manage these documents leading to spaghetti document versions and wasteful email cycles. Alternatives haven't taken off... The likes of Google have attempted to enlist the Internet to power their office applications (Google Docs) - however, the benefits that they bring to the table such as mobility and collaboration are offset by some inadequacies - lack of many features that users of Microsoft Office are familiar with and demand and loss of data and fidelity when you import/export your existing Microsoft Office documents.

SmartQ: Visual Project-Management That Conforms to You When it comes to project management, most web apps offer the same basic features: a group of to-do lists, some kind of messaging board, a few gigs of file storage, shared document-editing, a calendar of some sort, and if you’re lucky, a set of reports.

Axosoft Creates Visual Project Management with OnTime Version 10 - Axosoft SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Axosoft, the company behind the leading project management software for software developers, released version 10 of its OnTime software today, featuring a drag-and-drop Planning Board that makes managing tasks simple and visual. The new feature, called the Scrum Planning Board, illustrates each task, requirement, defect, and incident in the system as a card. At a glance, these cards show what stage the item is in, who it is assigned to, how much time has been worked and how much time is remaining. The cards can be picked up and moved to subsequent workflow stages as the item progresses, and each "move" can trigger custom e-mail alerts to the project manager or team member, notifying them of status updates. "Version 10 has completely changed the game for not only software development teams, but also for any business who manages multiple projects," said Hamid Shojaee, CEO & founder of Axosoft.
