Swyvel a cloud-based project management and collaboration platform was launched by Hardboot. Swyvel helps to share task lists, manage resources and collaborate with team members. The project management tool can be used by individual users like Freelancers, Solo Entrepreneurs, and Consultants and also by Small Businesses, Teams and Start-ups Agencies & Large Organizations.
A cloud-based project collaboration tool, Swyvel aims to replace the multiple platforms project managers are usually cobbling together in order to manage all the moving pieces of a project. The product was offered in a closed-beta period in February 2012 and a soft launch was made in November. One of the expected benefits of using Swyvel is the reduction of a project’s email footprint.The platform is also fully compatible with Dropbox and iCal for exporting calendar invites. Potvin has indicated that we should expect to see integration with other software and systems in upcoming product releases. Checkout www.swyvel.com.
The project management and collaboration tool also has a 14 days free trial period for first time users to help them evaluate the tool. Users can create milestone, tasks & reminders, allocate people and time, keep all communication in one place, track issues and bugs, share documents and files securely, track invoices and financials, customize permissions for team members, grant viewing access for management, vendors and clients.
