The nature of work has changed a lot over the past few decades due to advances in information technology. It is particularly true for those of us who engage in so called “knowledge work”. Our work requires us to have instant access to information and we need to be able to interact with and collaborate with many different people; people who we sometimes only know by their email addresses. As knowledge workers we often cannot anticipate which information we need, or who we need to interact with. We are also stuck between a rock and a hard place as
we have less time to plan our work at the same time as our work gets harder to plan due to constant change and complex inter-dependencies to the actions and decisions of other people.
Workbench solves this problem — Bluedog's web-based platform uses a people-oriented approach to collaboration that leverages a new generation of easy-to-use collaboration technologies to build on concepts such as search, notifications, links, tags, project signals, filters and teams.
Workbench addresses the increasing number of business challenges that rely on improved many-to-many collaboration: Information Management, Business Intelligence, CRM , and more. In turn these all rely on basic key knowledge worker activities such as:
• Sharing information
• Finding information
• Finding people
• Locating expertise
• Managing teams and projects
• Building workspace awareness
If your work requires direct or indirect participation of different people in order to achieve a certain purpose or goal, it’s absolutely essential to find and communicate with anyone who can contribute to that work — perhaps even people you don’t yet know. Workbench gives you the web presence to connect those people (even when they can't get to a computer, by using Workbench's iPhone or iPad applications).
Bluedog s' software-as-a-service (SAAS) offering, Workbench "Always on the Job!" is a web and iOS based tool for collecting and managing information related to projects, people, issues and other social collaboration.
