Project Collaboration Fellowstream

I saw a tweet by TorquePowered last week on a new Project Collaboration tool called Fellowstream and decided I’d take a look at it. After using it for a couple days I must say that my first impressions of it are pretty solid.

The site is in Beta and gives you a sub-domain that your team/company will use. Once you have your site setup, you create a project that’s associated with your Team and create some Milestones for that project. Milestones can be populated with Work Tickets and each Ticket can be assigned to a team member. When you are ready to start work on a Ticket you set it as your current Status and work on your Tickets activity. Once completed you mark the Ticket as complete.
Fellowstream let’s you build groups of users, like one for QA, one for Programmers etc. As you complete Tasks your projects progress is tracked and a progress bar on the projects home page shows how far along you are.

The real meat of Fellowstream however comes with their Stream feature. It works very much like Facebooks stream, were every action performed on the site, either editing an existing Ticket, Comments or deletions are placed in the Stream for all users to see. Project managers and team leaders can log in and quickly see what activities their team members have been up to.

The product is in Beta still, so it has a couple bugs and is lacking a few features that prevent it from being a complete tool, but it’s Beta and the Fellowstream team has been very responsive to my emails. They’re customer service is really impressive and I have a lot of faith that this product will be a stellar collaboration tool when it’s out of Beta.

Go check it out!

    Thanks for the review, Scionwest! We hope to live up to your expectations once Fellowstream is out of beta.
