Transparent project management with collaboration tools
Tools such as Redbooth, LibrePlan and Trello support project management within a team. With Trello, you organise tasks in a similar way to a pinboard. On the Trello board, all tasks and the associated responsible parties are clearly arranged. People can assign, comment on and schedule tasks for each other. Thanks to the flexible tiles, it is easy to rearrange and keep track of tasks.
Redbooth lists current to-dos and makes project-related time recording possible. This is another tool that allows the progress of a project to be easily recorded.
LibrePlan primarily supports resource planning. The depiction of workload and capacity allows you to better distribute tasks and more easily coordinate projects. In addition, budget and costs can be calculated in LibrePlan.
Security takes priority: with collaboration software, too
Every tool used in a company puts network security to the test. The more different tools team members want to use, the more areas in the network hackers find to attack. With Workplace Go, Konica Minolta pursues a security concept above all. The thinking behind this approach is that digital collaboration strategies should make the network stronger. In this context, Workplace Go makes use of Microsoft’s comprehensive security standards.
Three tips for choosing a collaboration tool:
- Free applications must make clear to what extent providers have access to sensitive customer data.
- In cloud-based applications, data senders are usually not anonymised. If data is intercepted, this can lead to problems.
- Before you select a collaboration tool, you should identify its potential. This ensures the costs are proportional to the actual effect it will have.
Investment in the future: collaboration tools
The employees of today and tomorrow expect and want a high degree of flexibility in their work. It improves their work–life balance and thus increases their willingness to do a good job. The major advantage of the Workplace Go collaboration solution over many other applications is that it is scalable, affordable and easy to use for small and medium-sized enterprises.
You don’t need your own IT department or SharePoint expert for Workplace Go. Because it is designed to be a solution, not a new problem. This solution awareness is a recurrent distinguishing feature of Konica Minolta. Konica Minolta offers companies the opportunity to test Workplace Go for up to six months free of charge.

Collaboration is developing digitally. This brings transparency and clarity to many processes, making knowledge management visible and usable for all. Because it is no longer hidden in emails. The project status and all project steps are available to the entire team every day.
Workplace Go also includes an intranet that can be used for modern employee communication. Any team member who chooses to can meet in the virtual tearoom for a chat about their next holiday. Collaborating is fun, so collaboration tools should be, too.
