The online environment yields great opportunities for freelancers and independent contractors, as well as for small and medium-sized businesses. Regardless of where they live, professionals from all over the world can seek each other out and collaborate. It is common knowledge that teamwork always delivers superior results because each team member contributes her/his own unique skills to the project. In web design, the online collaboration between two or more professionals is a powerful force.

The most basic example is that of a developer and a designer who join forces. While the former is a wiz of HTML coding, the latter lives and breathes visual creativity. Together, they launch beautiful websites. But even when more web designers come together with their unique styles, it makes a lot of difference. The larger the team, the more experience is shared – and everyone wins. Besides, the delivery time of a project gets significantly shorter with all hands on deck.

The key to doing a good job is to organize, and for this purpose Comindware is the ideal project management software of your business. With it, not only do you plan and then execute a process, but you easily control and manage it every step of the way. If you already use a similar service, then you’ll be interested to learn that what makes this tool so special is its adaptability.

In the real world, when we set up a business project, a lot of things don’t go according to plan – from allocation of resources, to unforeseen third-party complications like a distributor who fails to deliver something on time. Most management tools fail to take these flukes into account. They just tell you to set the parameters of a project in the beginning, and then generate an automatic scenario. If you want to make a change in an ongoing project, odds are the whole thing will give you a headache.

Comindware Project can run straight from MS Outlook, and it enables you to modify any process scheme during its execution. A visual Work Breakdown Structure allows you to drag-and-drop assigned tasks and set an initial priority, but you’re free to add any other detail on the way.

The software will start planning your project automatically, by drawing on those priorities – which spares you the effort of doing so manually. But wait, there’s more. A Real-time Gantt-chart automatically recalculates your project plan in real time by observing the progress of task completion in relation to their due dates.

Communication between team players is also bolstered by this proficient tool. Comindware Team Network as a whole permits you to set up a company directory and organizational chart, as well as it helps you manage documents and organize private or group-based rooms – for discussions that are vital to the well-being of your project.

Last but not least, it’s also very easy to keep everyone within the team constantly motivated by granting monthly and yearly awards for their work. Take my advice and work with this empowering software starting today. Try out Comindware!

My friends and I are always coming up with different business ideas and we always get stuck at the part where we have to build our website. The code requirement is always a drag for everyone else other than programmers. Web designers are way too expensive these days and so are programmers, so we end up giving up on our ideas. Lucky for everyone, things are moving in the right direction for once. Coding is no longer necessary and the new web builders out there are making the web easier than ever.

With IM Creator, you can get a free portfolio website for your business whether you’re a photographer, a web designer a graphic editor – and the list can go on. You won’t be needing neither programmers nor designers anymore, and you will be saving up a lot of time, because having your web site up only takes a few minutes. I will tell you how IM Creator works so you won’t have to take my word for it.

2

First, you browse through a wide variety of templates and choose the one that best represents your business. You have plenty of options here. Then you go to the dashboard and with the help of the menu from the top bar you can add pieces to your puzzle, such as colors, shapes, sizes, transparency by dragging and dropping elements on the work board. You can add images in slideshows or galleries and if you want to go pro, you can use the HTML widget. The best part is that you don’t need to register for all of this. The site is pretty intuitive, but just in case you have problems, there’s video guide, a PDF tutorial, a FAQ section, step by step walkthroughs and a forum. If you’re on to something fancy and you need something specific, you can contact their support team of professional designers and they will help you out.

After you’ve finished designing your site, you can get hosting from IM Creator too. It’s convenient to get hosting in the same place to save the hassle of looking somewhere else. There is a free package, but that will not allow you to have a personalized custom domain, and the storage options as well as other features are too limited. But the hosting prices for the better versions are really affordable starting at $5.95 per month, especially if you consider that you get to design your website for free. Give it a try and see how it goes.

If you’re like me, then every morning as you drink your coffee you also try to use that time to stay in touch with the latest happenings in the world. The Daily Telegraph, TechCrunch, and The Next Web are probably some of the first ideas that cross your mind as you log on the internet.

Techi has the potential to satisfy all the inquiring minds and to quench every Web designer or Web developer’s hunger for information. It’s a good idea to place Techi in your bookmarks, but it’s an even greater idea to subscribe to its newsletter, because this stellar service rounds up headlines from all the major sources so that you no longer have to engage in a daily odyssey for brand-new technology, media, and design topics to satisfy your curiosity.

If you navigate to Techi’s homepage, you’ll see what it’s all about. Basically, Techi is a platform to which only the best and most relevant news from the tech world make it. These stories are attentively extracted from the vast expanse of the internet the minute they appear and summarized in snippets, so that readers can preview the featured article, review, or piece of news before redirecting towards the full text.

What is more, Techi also publishes exclusive articles written by their own skillful contributors. The exclusive stories aren’t part of another setting, but converge with the non-exclusive content to enrich specific centers of interest, such as software, hardware, politics, and lifestyle. The most popular stories coming from both planes of origin can be filtered and displayed separately.
