‘‘ It is SIMPLE and EASY TO USE! It captures the most important aspects of PM and focuses the attention on those issues. ’’


eLumenata, Inc. is an instructional design company specializing in virtual world educational design.

How are you using DeskAway and what value is it providing your team?
Using it for project management - outlining projects, task lists, assignments; it is an amazing value - this way, I have the milestones, deadlines, etc - and can build the task lists around those issues. More important, it is SIMPLE and EASY TO USE! It captures the most important aspects of PM and focuses the attention on those issues.

Were you using any other tool before DeskAway?
I was using Google docs spreadsheet and prior to that, the Microsoft PM app online (not MSProject) - however, it was far too complicated to be of value.

Was there a learning curve associated with DeskAway? How did your team adapt to a new application?
Learn as you go - no time needed. My team LOVES IT.

What features does your team use the most?
Task assignments and groupings.

Are you emailing (sending tasks, attachments etc.) less because of DeskAway? How has DeskAway helped in lowering project costs, profitability or improving efficiency?
Yes - DeskAway eliminates the need for con calls that explain spreadsheets, gives our clients a place to see progress, and also allows for quick and efficient project changes.

Are there any other thoughts that you would want to share with us regarding our service, product etc.?
KISS!!!!! Keep It Simple Simon! Thank you!
