Could ScribblePost give Trello a run for their money?

(TECH NEWS) ScribblePost was inspired by how we collaborate on paper – could it give Trello and Slack a run for their money?

Getting your work life streamlined

Email can be a huge distraction when your calendar is chock-full of other pressing to-do items. Most professional jobs struggle with the unfortunate reality of excessive emailing, which can keep employees at their desk for hours slogging through repetitive and confusing messages.

Luckily, a number of tools have been created to ease the burden of communicating through email. For example, Doodle helps to simplify scheduling and Skype makes face-to-face conversations possible, while Trello and Slack help teams collaborate more efficiently.

Trello in particular has greatly impacted the way we here accomplish our work. With its system of work ‘boards,’ teams can post work assignments and discussions for collaborative projects. To maximize its utility, Trello gives users the tools to write comments and add attachments, check lists, due dates, and alerts to items on their project board. Work items can also be maneuvered between multiple project boards, making complex work progressions possible, and organized!

Perhaps Trello’s most important feature is its free membership and unlimited networking potential. To expand their working network, Trello users need only invite others to join their project boards.

Giving Trello a run for its money?

But Trello may be getting some competition from emerging network, ScribblePost. This new tool aims to improve the connection between colleagues, suppliers, and customers by incorporating their quick note taking system. ScribblePost users will be able to share notes, projects, and tasks with anyone they choose, and integrate all messages with their email.

This new collaboration tool was inspired by the way people scribble messages on paper.

Rod Hogrefe, Director of Services ANZ at Lexmark, has had the opportunity to use ScribblePost in the beta stage and found the tool to be exceptionally flexible. He comments, “I’m not restricted by forms, fields and menus. ScribblePost lets me work the way I want to work, with different people, in different environments.”

It will be interesting to watch how it performs in comparison to Trello’s millions of users. Either way, ScribblePost is sure to be another great step forward in our mission to eliminate the hassle of excessive emails and poor workplace communication.
