RealtimeBoard: Collaborative Virtuoso for Offices on One Visual Cloud Platform

Zeroing down to a profile, SWOT analysis, staffing roles, specific images, and most importantly, any ongoing projects, all in one dashboard, requires a lot of tech resources. This is why there is now a cloud collaborative platform, RealtimeBoard. With its base in Russia, the design of the cloud startup is to create an open visual plane where each staff member can augment what others are doing by attaching files, generating infographics, analyzing works through standard methodologies like the SWOT analysis, and even engaging in creativity, including generating random sentences, to tackle a big data problem.

What is Whiteboard?

According to the 13-member team, RealtimeBoard is bespoke of both its web appellation and board surname. In the former sense, it allows users to ‘discuss web-site or product interfaces,’ while in the latter context, it lets the peculiar nature of the internal cream of an organization to collaborate through ‘screen shots, markup…and mini-charts.’

The management itself is an epiphany of coordination par excellence, so to say. The top team consists of founders of other tech companies who needed an app that could allow them expedite and visualize concepts on a single platform, before they could then invite other stakeholders to chip in to the big picture. The lower echelons of management consist of designers who love their art if the meticulous interface of their whiteboard is anything to go by, as well as, aptly, entrepreneurs.

The Shopping Round: Synchronization

Needless to say, undertaking projects of similar scope as those of online whiteboard would require vast cloud space and window-shopping for applications for display and file attachment. The answer from this team is that of using easily compatible web resources, including Google Overdrive, PDF, and its own RealtimeBoard, the latter to encapsulate the former two in one space. In theory, when one has incorporated all those maps from Google Maps, brought in the treasure-trove of private content via a browser, used the RealtimeBoard dashboard to allocate them visible presence, and then used all design or attachment prowess to bring in images, one finally has an orderly mishmash of exactly the entire organization’s contribution to an ongoing project. It is possible to add various signatures and presentations using the good old PDF. Then one can trust on the Software as a Service (SaaS) environment to allow convenient temporary storage for all apps in use in the visual project. Needless to say, it is real-time.

How It Compares With File-Sharing Technologies

Because many of this online whiteboard’s applications rely on sharing content, albeit on a single board, it can compare with giants in the niche like Dropbox. For example, it is possible to embed not only online and PC-composite content for others to view on the other extension, but, just like Dropbox, vector content, including pictures, is also attachable. One can use standard images from the RealtimeBoard interface to augment what one has already. Most vector images include those of popular apps like in the social media, only that it offers one the ability to extend the applications to convenient sizes. Thus, the major innovation here is the fact that, sharing can be visual in a centralized place for all, unlike in cases where each user of a file views it from his or her end, singly.

Solving Complex Odds

How many companies wish they could clearly illustrate their paradigm diagram of the organization without using time-tasking academic analyses? This is where RealtimeBoard steps in by bringing in simplified images including Fishbone and Venn diagram. The former works as a way of tabling links and then undertaking analysis of the possible hitches that will beset a project, the academic way. The latter is for organizing otherwise complicated explanations, like the structure of an organization, by presenting them in a few overlapping circles, each with a meaning. There is also an extra tool: that of taking random big data, to solve organizational matters. One has just to take random words and then arrange them logically on the board before trying to decipher possible meaning from them. Zany or not, it eventually works, according to the team.

Pricing

Just like one would expect of a cloud startup racing up the ladder to the top, pricing is critical and has to bear dual approaches if it were to work. This is why there is the Free and Pro plans. The former allows users a trio of independent boards, as well as, endless shared boards. One can also use the free version to store as much as a hundred files with 100 megabytes of space. Like the uncharged version, the Pro one enables countless members to collaborate, but has a 3-gigabyte storage allowance. There are also backup plans and contacting help via electronic mail all days of a week. Additionally, independent and shared boards are accessible in an unlimited premise.

Thus, RealtimeBoard appears like it might be the next big thing in visual presentations for companies. This allows a hundred thousand persons to see a singe board simultaneously. It has this one strength on its side: innovativeness and a nose for synchronizing existing applications that can help perpetuate its agenda.
