Collaborative Solutions

Last week I met with Dave Huffman CEO of Linkify. Linkify is providing collaborative project management solutions for their clients. Their approach facilitates the creation of any team across boundaries enabling the use of project management tools and directories. As a result coordination, resource planning and a bias for execution and action are imbedded in these teams.

What really intrigues me is the way Dave has integrated his ASP business model, aligning it across channels, with an effective interaction model that can only grow. At the core is the solution provided to those that “project manage”. Using underlying approaches that retain e-mail, document handling and project management tools, they create spontaneous Extranets.

Where’s the next opportunity for Linkify? My guess is it will come from the users. And yet there's an opportunity there for the "social exchanges" of information about each other.

There are other sites chasing this meme. I had the benefits of Dave’s enthusiam to understand the potential. While there is clearly a list of competitors they aren’t making it easy for “me” to understand the offer. For example Kaidara and Icoya. I also found Sitescape as an enterprise solution. Of course I’m not the customer for these systems.

Linking together adhoc or permanently must become easier, more effective and at a substantially lower costs. Linkify is providing an effective approach. Watch it.
