If you work in the BPO sector, most likely you have worked on apps in the cloud or server based for you notes, crm, calls or whatever.. If you have worked as a freelancer or a nomad like a lot of programmers or social media managers do,then you surely have used collaboration applications like the famous google docs – that help people keep track and share documents, files,pictures and everything else even if they are far apart..
Recently, a friend of our attended the opening of the new office of Atlassian, a company that started in Australia that focuses mainly on collaboration software…
They have a couple of products, but the one that mainly got my attention was the Confluence.
Look at the pricing.. $10.00 per month for10 users – which means its an average of 1 dollar per user per month..
It’s very easy to sign up – just put in your details, and wait a couple of minutes – in about15 minutes you are ready to start.send invitations to other members to sign up.. create your notes and everything is done..
Besides the price – another thing that caught my attention is the fact that it has unlimited space. Full version usable even at the 7 day trial period.. and full 24/7 support.. Most other products I’ve tried on a trial period didn’t have those..
Atlassian apparently has its office in BGC – Bonifacio Global Center in Taguig City and is now currently employing 40 personnel which is basically doing its shared services – HR, Payroll,Customer service and Support.
Compared to google apps.. here’s what it offers
Well, just comparing storage – for 5 sd you get only 30 GB of storage and sharing.. for the 10 usd per month 1 TB only.. hmmm…
based on my experience – google docs is something like a simple file storage, compared to confluence where you can collaborate, track and work with others.
Well, confluence doesnt have email compared to google… well, if all the files are in the cloud already – no need to send emails with bulky attachments right?
Well, all I ca say it that it looks like we found a better alternative in collaborating with our nomads, home based reps and site based personnel.
Test it out for yourself.
