Here at Tech.Co we're big fans of productivity, whether it be improving our own, or helping others with theirs. We're always looking out for the best apps, tools, tips, and platforms to make us a more productive and efficient team, as well as more productive individuals. So, when we come across a platform that could help you and your team do what you do better, we like to pass it along.
I recently learned about daPulse. They are a productivity and project management platform for businesses. The driving idea behind the platform and its features is transparency. The team manager and team members all have the same view. It gives everyone the ability to see the big picture as well as individual tasks, along with allowing open and visible communication through every step.
The Execution Board
The execution board allows everyone to see the big picture, as well as how projects are being broken down by team member, the status of each project, and if a project is stuck at a certain point.
The Pulse is the door to transparent project management. It is a collaboration space that connects everyone to one particular topic, project, or task. It's a space where files can be shared, communication and updates exchanged, and serves as a common knowledge center. On the execution board, the pulse appears as a single line, which can then be clicked to access other information. Once you click on the pulse to open it, it will take you inside to a page similar to the one below.
Subscribers are anyone relevant to a particular project. They can see and contribute to the pulse and they will also get notifications to any updates inside the pulse. The platform also integrates with Google Drive and Dropbox as well as several other file sharing tools to make it as easy as possible to share documents, images, video, or anything else you want your team members to see, comment, and collaborate.
Uber, WeWork, and NBC Universal are among the clients that are using daPulse. They offer a 30-day free trial for anyone wanting to test drive their product, and a simple pricing structure dependent on number of users and level of features.
