A tool to cut clutter


Thirty-forty per cent of the mail in your inbox will be of no use, and you may realise this while cleaning it up one fine day. If clutter bothers you, here is an option.

TaskTrek is the tool for you. All messages are grouped into relatable activities and tasks chronologically, thus helping all communication flow in an organised manner automatically. Instead of the ‘send' button, all you have is ‘share.'

“TaskTrek's an alternative to e-mail,” says Dheeraj Juneja, founder and chief executive officer, Loginworks Softwares (www.loginworks.com). His company has designed this hosted service for internal team communication.

It is not just for mailing or messaging, but can also be used for managing resources, teams, documents and office within an organisation, clients and other stakeholders.

Once a company subscribes to this service, Loginworks Software will create an account for it and share its login details. The user types in the URL customised for the company (eg. http://company name.tasktrek.in) and inputs the username and password to access account. This application is accessible from any Internet browser. Starting January 2011, TaskTrek has been made available on the mobile too, says Mr. Juneja.

There will be no room for miscommunication if TaskTrek is used, Mr. Juneja claims. All messages appear in a trail-like format, the users get real-time updates or notifications through e-mail alerts and pop-ups, the entire history of the activity and all related messages are grouped together. Secondly, all files are grouped into standard folders for consistency in the office. And all team members store their information in one standard folder or sub-folder structures.

MAIN TARGETS

Small and medium enterprises are the main targets for this product, which is priced depending on the space required and number of users. A company with 10 users can start using TaskTrek with no difficulty. For it, it is a very economical solution, without having to worry about IT infrastructure.

It will be useful in PR agencies, media, marketing and advertising, where communication is priority, and law and financial agencies where systematic information docking is critical.

AT&T MiFi 2372 review

In the week or so that I have been testing the AT&T MiFi 2372 by Novatel Wireless, it has already saved no less than three lives. First, it saved my cable guy’s life. You see, Time Warner Cable provides the worst home Internet service I have ever experienced. I can’t even think of a close second. If providing terrible home Internet service was a sport, Time Warner Cable would be on its tenth consecutive undefeated season. Forget the fact that my upload speed is capped at 60Kbps and I’m lucky if I can get half that — it has been months since I’ve gone through a full day without at least one service interruption. Months. Unfortunately, Time Warner Cable has an exclusive contract with my building so I have no choice but to endure its abysmal service. Last week, as a Time Warner Cable technician entered my home for the sixth time in two months, I realized that this certainly would have spelled serious trouble had it not been for my trusty new back up device. Before the Mi…
