The testers provided us with valuable feedback and deepened our understanding of the collaborative habits and behaviors that occur on a daily basis between teams and individuals", commented Yossi Dan, co-founder & CEO of 2Win-Solutions, the creator of KonoLive. "Their suggestions and valuable input have assisted us in achieving greater usability and incorporating more functionality into KonoLive, bringing an even more intuitive integration of work and play to the desktop. We invite anyone who has yet to experience KonoLive to download a free trial and become part of a growing community of people who are truly collaborating anytime, anywhere".
Online, exponential growth of social software is just beginning to tap the potential of collaboration networks. Connections are being created, but are not yet boosting productivity and frustration levels continue to rise while trying to work efficiently with existing collaboration software. KonoLive centralizes, the three core elements of true collaboration - Activities, People and Content - in a unified workspace, providing an intuitive environment that is fully integrated into the applications that people use on a daily basis. This enables team members to work efficiently in familiar territory without having to re-learn another system or solution.
As a unified collaboration space, KonoLive connects activities with relevant content items such as documents, Web pages and media files. This makes them easily accessible, enabling a quick review cycle and providing access to stored information from a single location. KonoLive collects expertise in real time by utilizing collaborative tools such as commenting, stamping, chatting, rating and many more to quickly establish valid contributions. Based on a "rich internet application" client (RIA), KonoLive works both offline and online, enabling everyone to work anytime, anywhere.
KonoLive is one of the first major applications to leverage Adobe(R) AIR(TM), strengthening the connection between the desktop and the Internet by bringing a flash based interface to the desktop, creating a smooth and seamless experience for KonoLive users as they navigate intuitively between applications. Many popular desktop applications, such as Microsoft Word, Adobe Acrobat, Windows Media Player and Internet Explorer are tied into the KonoLive environment, enabling users to start leveraging and collaborating with KonoLive within minutes.
KonoLive is currently available for Windows XP, with other operating systems being released later this year.
Founded in 2005, 2Win-Solutions has gained expertise in developing Digital Document solutions through collaboration projects tailored to large accounts. Based on the success of these projects and the perceived need for improved collaboration capabilities for the work environment, the company created a generic, intuitive but robust solution for teams and individuals. This solution is KonoLive, the first instant collaboration software solution that is defining the future of knowledge sharing.
