WizeHive, a group messaging and task management app is getting an upgrade today, with a revamped interface, new features, an iPhone app and enterprise-friendly tools. WizeHive combines microblogging features found in Twitter, project management features, and general collaboration and organizational features.
WizeHive’s interface has been streamlined to be easier to use. You can now include up to five workspace that can be included in clickable tabs, with a “more” button available for links to additional workspaces. Generally, tabs in the interface have become consolidated for a cleaner look and feel.
New features to the platform include the ability to tag data as a way to easily find pages and content in search. And you can now create an account and login using your google credentials. You can directly access and index Google docs from within WizeHive and create new Google docs that will remain within Google Docs but also be linked in the appropriate location from within WizeHive.
WizeHive is also taking its collaboration platform mobile with a free iPhone app that offers much of the same functionality as the web app. And the new version also includes 22 WizeApps, which are applets that add additional functionality to a workspace. For example, WizeHive has a Resume Manager edition that includes applets for capturing inbound resumes (from job boards), as well as applets that allow for collaborative rating, scheduling and review.
WizeHive offers a free entry level version and paid versions start at less than $50 per month. The bootstrapped startup has only raised $500K in funding. WizeHive’s online collaboration tool has received positive reviews thus far thanks to an easy-to-use and collaborative interface, and is steadily gaining traction as a competitor to SharePoint and other enterprise-friendly collaboration platforms.
