How Projectplace helped
Cancer Research UK began using Projectplace three years ago, primarily as a document repository. They used our version management control to avoid duplication issues.
“Projectplace was mainly used for document management and for sharing applications that were developed as part of the project. It has been an extremely versatile resource for developing documents that required input from multiple project partners, and the versioning functions were particularly useful in this context,” comments Dan Grecu, “but, in this case, the project's objective is to develop argumentation models and technologies.”
Projectplace made the collaboration tasks for the development of project deliverables transparent. We also enabled Cancer Research UK to focus on project issues of primary concern and easily bring together a diverse project community working on a variety of computing platforms.
“Projectplace has allowed us to maintain a high level of shared project awareness and has given us the confidence that the reasons for which we subscribed to this tool were reliably fulfilled,” continues Dan, “everybody found Projectplace very intuitive and the use of on-line documentation and help functions was sufficient to support both regular users and administrators in their tasks.”
