For business professionals, collaboration is key. Working together to successfully achieve a mutual goal makes all the difference in a fast-paced world. However, when you and your partners’ busy schedules don’t quite mesh, progress can quickly become derailed. However, LiquidPlanner Mobile Dashboard by LiquidPlanner, Inc provides an online project management system that simplifies scheduling and collaboration for teams of all sizes.
With LiquidPlanner, users gain mobile access to this paid service that allows them to share files, project plans and comments with their entire team in a safe, secure environment. This service, which you may also access and work with via computer, facilitates fewer meetings and emails, and more realistic schedules.
Upon download, users must first have a LiquidPlanner account to login to the application. For those just signing up, visit http:///www.liquidplanner.com to create an account and access your 30-day free trial. Simply visit the website and enter your typical contact information. Once you’ve received the confirmation email, just click on the provided link to activate your account and complete the registration. After you’re done, feel free to begin exploring your mobile workspace, which provides three tabs: Comments, Task List and Recently Edited Items. Easily participate in team conversations, review your prioritized task list in detail, and view edited items recently posted by each of your project’s members.
What’s best about LiquidPlanner is that not every member of your team must possess an Apple device and the mobile dashboard application in order to connect. While the mobile dashboard comes in handy for those with such compatible devices, as it caters to your busy lifestyle, any member who has access to a computer can join the workspace environment.
After your 30-day free trial comes to an end, those who would like to continue using this service will have to pay. If you pre-pay for a single month, it will cost $35 per user per month. If you pre-pay for an entire year’s subscription, users will only pay $25 per user per month. Unfortunately, I’m not a businessperson in any sense of the word, so I cannot quite decipher whether these fees are within reason or not for such a service, but I can imagine that bettering your working environment is invaluable, especially when it results in success. So if the first 30 days show positive results, perhaps the service will inevitably pay for itself.
