WORKetc Reviewed on Web Worker Daily

Scott Blitstein over at Web Worker Daily has just posted a great review of WORK[etc]. What is great about this is Scott was a user on Veetro, which was essentially WORK[etc] version 1, so he knows first hand how far we have come:

I recall evaluating Veetro in the past and finding the interface lacking, but this new version 2.0 brightens things up considerably and adds improved navigation and lots of obligatory AJAX to make things easier to use.

Interestingly, Scott also touches on one of our key challenges building WORK[etc], that is, how to integrate a range of tools, without letting any one tool not get the full WORK[etc] treatment. The total value of WORK[etc] is only as much as the weakest tool. If a single tool isn’t up to the mark, then the whole application falls short.

The fear with this sort of approach [all in one solution] is that the individual apps might not stand up to their standalone counterparts but I certainly didn’t feel that I was using a “lite” version of anything. Features vary even in standalones and in most instances I found that the individual WORK[etc] apps are really quite feature rich.
