Visual collaboration for your projects

Sunday, July 1st, 2012 by Servage
Collaboration tools are not a rare sight online. Especially those related to project-management, trying to give you a framework for collaboration, tools etc. However, visual collaboration is moving into the market as well. It's for example already pretty great to code simultaneously with multiple developers in the same source file, while seeing changes in real time, for example with different colors. For design collaboration and exchanging conceptual ideas by adding elements, structures, text snippets etc. onto a table, the offline collaboration has been superior for a long time. But maybe this is changing with CanvasDropr, a tool which lets you work like this online. Essentially you get an area (canvas) ...

Friday, June 22nd, 2012 by Servage
If you're are busy web developer, or pretty much any other service provider, who has enough work to do with doing actual stuff for customers, then handling quotes and billing is really not the best use of your time. Lots of billing tools have emerged, making it easy to manage and send invoices. But what about the step before that?

Monday, June 18th, 2012 by Servage
