Startup Vigience Delivers New Task Management Solution to Engage With Customers

Horgen, Switzerland (PRWEB) December 12, 2013

Vigience AG has released version 3.0 of its main and most popular application on the QuiXilver platform, the QuiXilver Task Manager. The application has been significantly revamped, making collaborative task management for business even easier and more user-friendly, incorporating feedback and suggestions from our existing customers.

The QuiXilver Task Manager helps project managers to engage with their customers better and more effectively by improving communication across department and company boundaries. Managers using QuiXilver can easily setup secure collaboration workspaces to transparently share tasks and responsibilities, documents such as presentations and meeting minutes, and action items – all without using e-mail. With all information in one place, they can easily keep track of everything that has happened in the project from beginning to end, for any type of project. Clear responsibilities, automatic notifications and reminders, as well as progress updates enable everybody to get things done quicker and keep the deadlines.

With the new version, the graphical view of all tasks is integrated in the main application, giving users an overview of all tasks and their status similar to a kanban board. By defining additional statuses, the application can easily be adapted to the needs of the business or a project team. And, user-defined colours for task categories and statuses not only make the user interface more appealing, but also help users to better grasp and understand what they need to do next.

The new QuiXilver Task Manager is available now for all QuiXilver users free of charge. New users can sign up for free at http://www.quixilver.com for the Task Edition of QuiXilver, or for a trial of the more powerful Team and Enterprise Editions.
