Redbooth Introduces Support for Google’s New Android for Work Program, Making Mobile Work More Convenient Than Ever

Redwood City – November 1, 2016
On The Heels of Launching The First Enterprise App For Apple TV, Redbooth Continues To Expand Options For Mobile Work, Liberating Knowledge Workers From the Tyranny of Their Desks

Redbooth, the intuitive task and project management platform for teams, today announced that its Android app now supports Google’s Android for Work program. Security-conscious companies with employees using their own mobile devices can now choose a platform that their employees enjoy using — and that their IT departments can successfully administer. Redbooth’s app for Android for Work is paving the way for increased adoption and more secure management of company information accessed via mobile devices.

“We see great potential in the Android for Work platform, along with a true opportunity to make the lives of our customers easier,” said Ben Falk, Redbooth’s Director of Mobile. “We’ve taken the first big step in enhancing our app so it can be part of this exciting program. We look forward to continuing to partner with Google as this program enhances the mobile experience for our Android customers.”

The Redbooth app for Android for Work is a friendly, streamlined experience that includes kanban view for to-do lists as well as the ability to easily assign tasks and deadlines, leave comments, and resolve tasks on the go. The app taps in directly to Redbooth’s cloud-based task and project management platform, which can be used by a team or an entire company.

“Redbooth’s Android for Work app is a simple yet powerful productivity application that capitalizes on the best principles of material design,” Falk said. “It’s a fun, best-in-class productivity tool for any Android user — and at the same time it’s incredibly straightforward for long-time Redbooth customers. The whole experience is super-clean.”

Redbooth’s placement in the Google Play Store’s Android for Work area follows on the heels of its launch of the first ever enterprise collaboration app for Apple TV, which brings a streamlined, responsive version of shared virtual team workspaces and planning templates into the boardroom and the living room. Redbooth is committed to providing teams with the optimal methods to access their work and collaborate with their colleagues, regardless of where they are located or the devices they’re using.

Redbooth’s free Android for Work app is available now on the Google Play store. Users who sign up through the app also receive a free version of Redbooth’s web app, where they can explore the full suite of Redbooth’s productivity tools with even more powerful features.

Introducing Redbooth for Apple TV, a Groundbreaking Productivity App Designed Exclusively for Apple TV

Redwood City – August 18, 2016
Redbooth Provides Groups with a Seamless Collaboration Platform, Maximizing the Apple TV Experience in the Living Room and the Board Room

Redbooth, the all-in-one project management and collaboration platform to get tasks done, today announced the launch of its new Apple TV app. Designed exclusively for the new Apple TV, the new Redbooth app leverages the power of the platform to encourage group discussion, collaboration and planning around the screens in our offices and homes from lesson planning and backlog prioritization meetings to trip planning and a wedding countdown. The free, purpose-built app displays an optimized version of Redbooth, enabling teams to run more efficient meetings and be more productive, and families or friends to plan and complete important projects.

“As a collaboration app designed specifically for Apple TV, we’re delivering a groundbreaking, streamlined experience that allows you to skip the screen-sharing, ditch the dongles and start planning quickly and beautifully in the living room or the board room,” said Dan Schoenbaum, CEO for Redbooth. “Combined with Redbooth’s apps for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch, this affords maximum flexibility when editing tasks, adding comments and staying connected to your team’s work.”

The initial version of Redbooth for Apple TV includes some of the following capabilities:

  • Optimized for Large Screens: Rather than projecting the standard Redbooth desktop client, a streamlined, responsive version of the workspace is displayed, which can be used to guide, organize and facilitate group meetings or gatherings tied to projects and tasks;
  • Customized User Experience: Once a user is logged in, a user’s existing workspaces are automatically synced, providing an easy way for team members to drill down into an individual’s workspace to view task lists and tasks, view task status, assignees, due date, description and comments, mark tasks complete, set a due date, and view extended descriptions and comments;
  • Integrated Content: Get started quickly with Redbooth’s free project templates or use your Redbooth account to easily view and update your existing workspaces. Users can access and view a variety of useful content, including application training, best practices and productivity tips – all available for on-screen viewing.

Redbooth for Apple TV is available now and can be downloaded directly from the App Store for Apple TV. For more information, visit: https://redbooth.com.

Redbooth Brings Powerful Task and Project Management to Cisco Spark Through New Bot Integration

Las Vegas – July 11, 2016
Chat Bots and Natural Language Processing Extends Cisco Spark Messaging Experience and Enhances Team Collaboration and Productivity

Today at Cisco Live, Cisco’s annual IT and communications conference, Redbooth, the all-in-one project management and collaboration platform, announced an integration with Cisco Spark that transforms the way teams interact and run their projects. Leveraging the Api.ai platform and Cisco Spark APIs, users can employ intuitive natural language commands to manage Redbooth-powered projects and tasks directly from Cisco Spark messaging streams. Redbooth will be demonstrating this intuitive and simple user experience at Cisco Live booth C9.

Through this unique integration of the leading project management and team collaboration applications, users can seamlessly move from planning work to real-time collaboration. Using the Redbooth bot available in a Cisco Spark room, team members can ask an array of questions of their workspace such as “what’s happening today?”, “show me what my team is working on,” and “what’s urgent?” Cisco Spark’s messaging and meeting experience can then be extended to drive meaningful work outcomes, with real-time communications triggered by project status and follow-up activities tracked by Redbooth.

“As we’ve seen in the consumer market with the increasing popularity of Apple’s Siri and other artificial intelligence-powered products, natural language interaction with apps represents one of the next frontiers in how we manage work and collaborate with others,” said Dan Schoenbaum, CEO for Redbooth. “Through this integration, customers will literally be able to ask a wide range questions to their Redbooth project in Cisco Spark rooms using natural language. We’re excited about the game changing potential this type of innovation will bring to the way teams plan, manage and complete work in a collaboration-centric environment.”

Cisco Spark and Redbooth Boost Team Productivity Together

Redwood City, California – May 2, 2016
New Integration Brings Actionable Task and Project Management to the Cisco Spark Team Collaboration Experience

Redbooth, the all-in-one project management and collaboration platform to get work done, today announced a new integration with Cisco Spark to unite task-centric Redbooth workspaces and communications-centric Cisco Spark rooms. Through this integration, users can now work simultaneously in both Redbooth and Cisco Spark to seamlessly communicate and collaborate with a clear focus on productively completing work.

The linkage of Cisco Spark and Redbooth enables teams to flexibly manage their work and collaborate in the way that fits their business. Redbooth’s powerful task management visibility can be customized in a variety of views, including standard task lists, Kanban boards and Gantt charts via the newly introduced Timeline view. Updates to tasks tracked by Redbooth are then automatically added to the associated Cisco Spark room. This means that important information can drop right into the place where teams are already sharing messages, using voice and voice communications, and launching meetings.

“Redbooth already makes everything actionable, trackable, and reportable, and with this new integration, you bring that level of accountability right into your team communications in Cisco Spark,” said Jordi Romero, VP Business Development & Platform for Redbooth. “Redbooth takes the Cisco Spark collaboration experience to a new level of productivity where teams are able to track work in a way that is visible and transparent, and drive to productive outcomes faster.”

“Cisco Spark is transforming how teams collaborate, bringing them together in a place that makes it easy to keep people and work connected, said Jason Goecke, General Manager, Tropo Business Unit at Cisco. “Further customizing and differentiating this experience, our open APIs enable business critical apps to integrate with Cisco Spark. As a solution that also enhances the productivity of teams, we are excited to add Redbooth to our growing ecosystem of apps that extend the value of Cisco Spark.”

The Redbooth integration with Cisco Spark is available to Redbooth users immediately and can be activated via their user profile settings. New users can try all of Redbooth’s powerful task and project management capabilities, as well as the Cisco Spark integration, via a free trial at https://redbooth.com.

Taking Project Management to the Next Level, Redbooth Redefines Gantt Charts

Redwood City, Calif. – April 19, 2016
Designed To Transform The Way Teams Manage Their Work, Redbooth’s New Timeline View Reimagines Gantt Charts With Remarkably Intuitive, User-Friendly Interface

Redbooth, the all-in-one project management and collaboration platform to get work done, today introduced its new Timeline view, a powerful planning and work management solution within the Redbooth platform that utilizes Gantt charts to help teams simply and easily visualize project progress at a glance.

Built from the ground up, the new Timeline view incorporated customer feedback at every stage of development, ensuring that it was tailored to the unique needs of everyday users, not just professional project managers. Historically, the traditional solution for visual project planning has been Microsoft Project, which many users find to be complex and hard to use. Alternatively, lightweight planning and task management tools including Asana, Basecamp, Trello and spreadsheets such as Microsoft Excel lack integrated Gantt reporting. Redbooth’s Timeline view is designed for business users, incorporates the precise Gantt features that teams require without overwhelming them, and is much easier to use and get immediate value from.

Redbooth’s Timeline view builds and updates Gantt charts automatically for projects, enabling teams to immediately visualize a project from start to finish. Dependencies, built-in accountability, and drag-and-drop editing make it simple and convenient for everyone.

“Everyone at our company has been really excited about using Redbooth’s new Timeline view to create a streamlined visual representation of our work,” said Pete Soyer, Senior R&D manager for Happy Family Brands, which specializes in organic products for babies, toddlers, and beyond and has been twice recognized as America’s fastest-growing organic food company by Inc. Magazine.

“Timeline view gives us all an easy way to go to one spot and see the status of a project — much easier than reviewing a sheet with a list of dates on it,” he said. “I use it for tracking new product development from the idea phase all the way to the post-launch review. Seeing how one task is going to impact another gives me a much better picture of the overall process.”

“Across the board, our customers agreed that while Gantt charts were the best way to visualize project progress and status, they could also become cumbersome,” said Jon Sonnenschein, chief operating officer at Redbooth. “We listened closely to them, and the result is the Timeline view: a simplified yet powerful Gantt chart solution that every member of a team can use. The Timeline view works smoothly with other favorite Redbooth features — including task lists, shared workspaces, deadlines, task delegation, and reporting — that are familiar to our customers.”

With Redbooth’s Timeline view, team members can determine, at a glance, the status of a project at any given point in time; zoom in for a closer look to discover any tasks in danger of slipping behind; make required adjustments; and view the potential impact of late tasks for the rest of the project.

The Timeline view also empowers team members to:

  • Plan out an entire project or client engagement in one place
  • Address bottlenecks early and correct them
  • Ensure work across a team is completed on-schedule
  • Easily share progress reports with all teams including C-level, board members, management team or clients
  • View completed tasks for a comprehensive perspective of what has been accomplished
