HALIFAX, Jan. 25, 2012 /CNW/ - Upstart Industries' extends collaborative
work notifications to the consumer space with its latest release of its
social project management software, Vantage.
Vantage is an online, subscription-based social project management and
task management tool which also includes its own secure social media
channel called VantagePoint. VantagePoint is integrated throughout the
project management application, streaming real-time information about
work activities such as new task assignments, completed tasks, event
requests, reminders, approval and consensus requests, team member
status updates, and more.
Available today, the latest release of Vantage has the capability to
send users a direct message to their Twitter account whenever they
receive a new VantagePoint message.
Upstart Industries President, Kelly Kazimer, explains "Our focus is
always on providing the easiest, most intuitive tools to enhance and
support productivity. While many organizations still embrace
traditional email, there is growing demand to embrace newer, more
efficient communication mediums. Leveraging Twitter for VantagePoint
notifications allows us to create an appropriate bridge between work
and personal social platforms. And with Twitter now baked into Apple's
latest iOS, Vantage users can conveniently receive their Vantage task
and project notifications on their Apple device".
Taking advantage of this latest feature requires a dual opt-in process.
Your company's Vantage administrator must first enable Twitter on the
company's Setup page. Then each user must explicitly allow Vantage to
send them Twitter notifications, by selecting "Enable Twitter" in the
Profile section of their Vantage Home page, and following the setup
instructions. A refreshing change from the all-too-frequent practice
of applications pushing out defaulted sharing features to unsuspecting
Vantage offers a free trial at http://projectvantage.com, and you can follow Vantage on Twitter (http://twitter.com/projectvantage) for the latest news.
