Online project collaboration application

Hi guys,

I hope that this in the right forum, if not please feel free to move it.

I have an issue and it’s one that I believe can be resolved through online collaboration although I need to find an application suitable – ideally .Net based.

An overview: I will be working on a large scale marketing project that has involvement from many other agencies and multiple clients. As a result I need to be able to store assets online via a DAM (Digital Asset Management) then create projects (potentially with items/PDFs that contain assets stored in the DAM), project can range from video edits through to designs for digital channels (JPEG) and print (PDF). Then allow people to input, discuss, add comments, add change requests control via version control and finally approve via an approval workflow through out the project life cycle. Then provide areas for general discussion via a forum or Wiki.

The general idea of online project collaboration seams to solve all of the issues that I face i.e. mass emails, email back tracking, storing of assets, conversations, debates and approvals. However I guess what I am looking for might be too much for one application? I have just started to use Jive SBS and researching others, does anyone have any ideas or can point me in the direction of a web based application that could be a suitable solution.

Thanks,
Si :slight_smile:

Will Basecamp do what you’re after? I’ve found it pretty helpful for managing projects in the past

I did think about Basecamp and have prior experience of using it. But I think that it may be too limiting i.e. lack of approval process etc

Have you tried Google Wave yet? Althoguh right now it is closed, you might be able to get in.

I have an invite available if you want it. PM me

Its good and helpful tips for project management work. People have to understand these type of tips for their project work so they can enhance their work of project easily and systematic.

ActiveCollab is a very good solution :slight_smile: I’m also working on my own which will use specific development strategies but I really can’t tell anyone just yet :wink:

Cheers guys :slight_smile:

You may want to take a look at http://www.aceproject.com/ too

May be projectpier help you out ?

Thanks for the reply’s guy’s these are all being added to my review list! One of the key items and functionality requirement is the ability to store video and display without people with specific privileges being able to download - watermarking would be ideal but not essential. This could be an area for development i.e. users can upload videos to the asset stores but I could change the previewer to disable the download option and overlay a watermark - if the viewer is editable.

We enjoy www.comindwork.com for are internal projects. We have made some recommendations to them for changes and they were implemented rather quickly, so that’s a major plus in my book. Depending on the size of your project, it may be a little more expensive than some others. The other product I wish I could try would be www.actionmethod.com It looks realllly cool (and their paper products are extra sexy as well).

Lots of them i think.

I have used basecamp, assembla, and the hosted solution like projectpier, activecollab.
And rightnow i used collabtive, the hosted sollution.

Well, its more come in this year. The old ones improve their service and the startsup ones become famous in short time. You can check it in Web Apps listing, tagged as collaboration or project management (feedmyapp, go2web20, killeraps, etc) …

I use ClockingIT and set up sub-projects for restricted access.

I have a main project for all users and sub-projects for the restricted segments of the project. I give the specific users access and can grant different permission levels (read only, comment, start-topic, etc.) and then notify the users to click on the “Projects” tab to see the restricted sub-projects/sub-tasks.

It is good for Programmers.

They take so many online porjects.
