at a glance
Does your team spend more time in meetings tracking tasks and status than actually working to move the ball downfield?
We feel your pain. Traditional tools and processes focus too heavily on upfront planning and time intensive tracking, leaving your team less agile and less responsive to evolving requirements and conditions.
TeamPoint pares it all away and builds a project execution platform around real-time communications – all in a browser-based rich web client that improves accessibility, visibility, and agility. TeamPoint is ad-hoc lightweight collaboration done right.
TeamPoint isn’t just a new paradigm for project execution in SharePoint: it’s about getting things done.
- Easily provision, monitor, and collaborate on new workstreams with TeamPoint “Huddles”.
- Web based group chat, integrated directly into SharePoint – nothing to install on the desktop!
- Real-time updates on project documents, milestones, and tasks.
- Easily deployed to SharePoint environments using packaged solution files and features.
- Integrated resource presence and status.
- Integrated, user-defined, user-configured reports
- Visual project metrics
GameTime Huddles allow teams to create real-time enabled workstreams. Each Huddle represents a workstream and encapsulates:
- The workstream collaborators
- The workstream documents
- The workstream tasks
- Real-time notifications
- Real-time status
- Real-time, visual metrics
Creating new workstreams with TeamPoint is as easy as creating a new Huddle list item in SharePoint — we do all of the magic behind the scenes.
Unlike other desktop chat clients, TeampPoint integrates directly into the most common work environment – the users’ browser. TeamPoint uses the same foundational technology as Google Wave©: XMPP.
This means that there’s zero deployment to users’ desktops*. Just install TeamPoint into your SharePoint 2010 environment and you’re ready to go!
This allows users to work seamlessly with their project related milestones, documents, and tasks without having to jump between different applications. Multi-user chat enables teams to work and collaborate in real-time, without stuffing mailboxes with long email chains; say goodbye to “reply all”!
TeamPoint goes beyond just chat and integrates with SharePoint to deliver real-time status and updates to the browser.
This means that there’s no more waiting for team members to email you when they’re done – all of the action is directly channeled to the TeamPoint Huddle where every member of the team has visibility to progress and status of the project.
easy to deploy
Because TeamPoint has no client footprint, it’s easy to deploy and manage.
All components are packaged into a single, easy to deploy SharePoint solution that deploys using simple PowerShell scripts or our easy-to-use installer.
Settings are configured right in the SharePoint interface using simple SharePoint lists.
easy to configure
TeamPoint uses basic SharePoint artifacts for most SharePoint functionality – lists, content types, document libraries, views, and so on.
This means that TeamPoint is non-intrusive; the content types can be easily extended and customized to fit the needs of any team right in the SharePoint interface.
Tasks, milestones, and documents are just like any other SharePoint artifact and can be accessed directly through the default SharePoint interface.
Existing reports can be modified by simply editing the SharePoint view associated with the report. New reports can be added by configuring custom views in SharePoint – right through the browser interface or using SharePoint Designer – no need for developers!
Get real-time, integrated project metrics right in the Huddle that provides insight and visibility into your team’s progress.
Comprehensive and configurable visual metrics allow project managers and team leaders to easily visualize the status of a project.
presence and status
Real-time user presence and live status updates allow team members to see who’s in the Huddle, who’s busy, who’s working on what.
This allows your team to focus on getting things done instead of chasing down status and availability.
