WorkMate is a project management tool that lets users tailor the tools to their needs. With a click of a button, users can begin discussions about a project without sending multiple emails. All discussion information is stored in one online location for easy access later. If the user wants, they can respond by email rather than logging in to WorkMate. The application gives users a place to store files of any type. Project tasks can be created and assigned to tea members. When the task is complete, WorkMate sends the user a notification. Users can set up a project right away and visit the Add-on Store anytime they want to add more tools and functions to the application if needed.Show more screenshots »
WorkMate was designed and developed by CreaDroid. The application was designed to give users a simple way to manage projects, tasks and team members. The current version includes a wide range of features however it has not yet caught on. For the most part WorkMate has gone unnoticed. That may change as more users try the service and spread the word. For the time being, WorkMate offers helpful services for users handling projects and teams.
WorkMate offers many features that are found in other, similar applications. In terms of basic function, the application really doesn’t innovate. What makes WorkMate so unique is the interface and way it presents each feature. The design helps maximize the user experience by utilizing simple, easily accessible buttons that give the user instant access to various tools. The ability to pick and choose add-ons from the Add-on Store is another nice benefit that lets users customize their experience to their professional needs.
WorkMate offers users a design that can help optimize productivity. The interface isn’t overly fancy or colorful, but provides a clean, clear workspace for the user. Simply, stylized icons add flavor along with hints of color that are used in a practical manner. Each visual element is placed to maximize the user’s ability to streamline the project management process. WorkMate may not use cutting edge graphics, but it does offer a user friendly experience.
A new user can create a WorkMate account by clicking the “Sign Up” link in the upper, right hand corner of the homepage. The registration form appears at the center of the next page. The form asks for an email address, full name and password. After successfully submitting the form, the user is automatically signed in to their new WorkMate account. The user can begin creating projects right away. An email confirmation is requested but not required to log in for the first time.
All new users can create a WorkMate account for free. There are no subscription fees and the user receives unlimited access to all basic features. The site does not require a credit card and does not list a subscription fee for its services. Users are given access to all five add-ons for free as well. Add-ons include contacts, calendars, additional states for tasks, scrum reports and public projects.
WorkMate is an appealing project management option for users who want a simple solution without a lot of fancy, confusing features. The application is so easy that it doesn’t even come with all features installed right off the bat. The user can visit the add-on store to add features like calendars and public projects if they want or keep their feature options as simple as possible by sticking with vanilla WorkMate.
