Boston-based Kibits Corp. announced the launch of their mobile collaboration platform, Collaborate.com. The new service allows distributed business teams to work seamlessly together on projects of all kinds.
The “mobile-first” platform allows its users to connect through iPhones, the iPod Touch, Android devices, and the Web, in order to quickly manage business projects. Combining document sharing and task management environments, the Collaborate.com platform can be integrated with cloud services such as Box, Dropbox, Evernote, Google Drive, and Apple's iCloud.
Already adopted by a wide range of different industry sectors, Collaborate.com has an ease of use, secured network encryption, and affordability that has widespread appeal. The platform’s ability to be used for a multitude of various projects is also quite attractive to businesses that require constant collaboration from their mobile workforce. As the press release announcing the launch explains, “Collaborate.com helps keep teams on the same page and accelerates decision making across many real-world use-cases, including field sales force management, field service issue resolution, warehouse inventory control, and more.”
Matt Cutler, Collaborate.com’s CEO and co-founder, said in the press release that the ultimate goal of the new service was to bring the “second-nature” use of mobile devices in our personal lives to, “overloaded team leaders are in need of a similar approach to manage their teams and their day-to-day projects.” He added, “We have crafted our platform to extend familiar mobile conventions – like instant push alerts and automatically organized conversations – to the comparatively complex domain of day-to-day team and project management.”
While the new product is being offered for free for teams of up to five, tiered pricing for larger teams and additional features is also available starting at $9.99 per month.
Kibits Corp., the company behind Collaborate.com was founded in 2011 by Cutler and David Greenstein. They have received funding from Google Ventures, Charles River Ventures, and General Catalyst, among others.
