Traction Software (news, site) adds a range of dashboards and features to its social enterprise platform to improve monitoring and collaboration.

Traction Control for Business

Having made a big play of tracking and collaboration in last year's 5.1 TeamPage release of its social enterprise tool, Traction makes reading what's going on easier with the introduction of slick-looking, context-based dashboards and activity feeds in the new 5.2 release.

Able to show users' actions, status and work tasks, the new dashboards can help managers and admins keep an eye on projects, upcoming milestones and specific tasks that need their attention. If the boss isn't able to keep a close eye on things, they can receive email or messages when changes take place.

Management Made Easy

Able to view projects by tasks, people working on them, conversation threads, Traction TeamPage can be used by all parties, including teams, clients and other users with permission-based access to appropriate parts of a project and encourage collaboration and rapid solution of speed bumps or problems

Additional enhancements include personal calendars, email digests and time-based graphs. These and tags, task assignments and comments can help the users keep on top of things and documents can be dropped inline, using HTML 5 browsers, to add needed content or reference information. Expect further enhancements to this social enterprise app to help workers keep progressing on-track together.
