Intervals Revs Up Online Suite of Business Management Tools
New document support feature completes robust task and time management system
SANTA BARBARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pelago announced today a major upgrade to Intervals, its flagship time and task management system. Intervals now features full document support, including upload, transfer and version tracking capabilities. The new functionality turns the robust web-based suite of management tools into a complete and fully mobile business application.
Intervals document support represents a new trend in asynchronous web applications, which give the user real-time interaction and feedback and which leave other applications still operating in linear interfaces far behind. This has far-reaching implications for the business world, as it strives to figure out what’s real and what’s hype in the Web 2.0 space. Pelago has filtered out the practical from the hypothetical in this brave new world of the web and built a solid and responsive business application.
With the document support upgrade, users can now work with virtually any file type, retain full version histories, link documents to specific projects and tasks, search for files within projects or universally, and share files with other team members regardless of geographical location or time zone. Documents can even be tagged with keywords for easier searches. Storage quotas depend on the type of account the Intervals user has.
The new functionality peels away yet another important layer of inefficiency experienced daily by designers, programmers, writers, producers, project managers, and their clients: the email attachment. Documents sent by email can be easily lost or confused with earlier or later versions.
Even FTP, iDisk, and other file sharing mechanisms fall short, as they are stand-alone solutions that cannot be fully centralized and integrated with a company’s workflow. With Intervals, all of the pieces of a project sit in one organized, centralized work space: team member and client accounts, tasks, files, notes, instructions, timesheets, fee structures, and work modules.
“The impact of the Internet on business today cannot be overstated,” said Braden Jones, Pelago’s CEO. “Companies are demanding full workflow centralization and 24/7 universal access, and Intervals delivers on both counts.”
Created by Pelago, Intervals was originally designed to solve Pelago’s own struggles with tracking time, billing clients, and knowing where projects stood in real time. Targeted primarily to creative and communications services companies and small businesses, Intervals is a powerful suite of tools for anyone who wishes to ease the daily stress of organizing and managing people, workflows, projects and time.
