FileTrek, Inc. (http://www.filetrek.com) has released FileTrek for iPad, a management dashboard tool designed for workgroup managers and other team members to transparently track the flow of projects, data and collaborative activity while on the go.
FileTrek for iPad provides live activity updates of projects, displays how project files are related and how those files are being changed, with real-time data syncing and updates. The FileTrek iPad app is built for members of workgroups that require timely distribution of frequently updated files and the ability to track those files and data wherever it resides. Follow this link for a demo, according to Carol Mason, director of Product Management at FileTrek.
“Managers want to view data and activity while on the go, and team members want to report the status of their work without having to write a report or make a phone call. FileTrek for iPad simultaneously presents three up-to-date feeds of information — people, projects and data, all on a single pane of glass,” she says. “It will change everyone’s mindset as to how to get projects done with greater efficiency, and even have some fun while doing it.”
The dashboard app is an extension of the FileTrek solution launched on Feb. 15. The application is the only combined cloud-based file sharing and tracking solution on the market, according to Mason. FileTrek is designed to allow secure file sharing, project collaboration, and the ability for managers to track content and data with enhanced compliance-friendly audit reporting.
With FileTrek for iPad, a worker in the field can access data through a tablet and have the same secure view of spreadsheets, presentations and memos as a manager in the company offices. Any existing FileTrek project or document that has been synced or shared can be added to the dashboard with a single click. There are no limits to the number of “favorite” projects, people and files that can be tracked.
FileTrek’s data tracking feature allows users to obtain a view of all activity within a workgroup or project, who has worked on it, and the various changes that have been made to it. The app provides access to the most recent versions. A file map tracks project dependencies and illustrates how files are related.
You can see up-to-date sharing activity within a project, who has been added, who has been removed, information on what files have been reviewed, changed or removed, A cover flow interface allows users can visually flip through snapshots of files to access and view all the documents and files related to the project(s) they’re working on.
FileTrek for iPad is free and available now for existing Team and Enterprise accounts from the Apple App Store. For any company registering a new Team or Enterprise account with 20+ users on an annual purchase plan prior to July 31 they’ll receive a new iPad free.
