One of the really
great things about working on the Web is that it can be done from pretty much
anywhere, as long as there is some kind of connection. This, of course, has its
downsides, particularly when it comes to collaborative projects.
Many companies have tried to find a solution to this problem
by creating tools aimed at these professional teams that may not always be
within the immediate proximity of one another.
One such tool is Cage, a brand new collaboration application
that allows creative teams to present their work for feedback and approval. The
app just recently launched its public beta version.
Creative professionals can use the application to easily
upload and present files, but they can do far more than that. It also allows
them to manage tasks, organize revisions, and receive approvals form team
members in a single environment. The public beta version is undergoing a
massive redesign and interface redevelopment, as well as introducing a
multitude of new or improved features.
Some of these enhancements include the ability to manage,
assign, and complete tasks within the app, in-app sharing, a video player with
the ability to offer frame-by-frame feedback, support for a wide variety of
file types, customizable email notifications, an archive of inactive products,
Since its private beta release in 2011, Cage has been
utilized by over 20,000 creative professionals, including employees of Marvel Comics,
Electronic Arts, Target, Twitter, and more.
