#1. Review Tech Tools for Mobility Management
In 2014, I fulfilled a New Year's resolution to never again use email to coordinate a project. I chose a portfolio of affordable tech tools for conference calling, screen sharing, & online collaboration. It's time to review how well it went.
First, basecamp.com, the online project collaboration site was a great find. In Feb 2014, the Upstate NY Medicaid Transportation site had 34 users. We are up to 104 users from around New York State. The site is the portal for enabling collaboration among counties with our work with NYS Dept of Health. I also use it for six other projects. The most intensive project of late is coordinating work preparing for our FTA Triennial Review in 2015. After each project is completed I archive it and free-up the slot for a new project.
For many people I work with, "basecamp" is a noun where project files, discussions and emails are kept. I'm still learning how the features of the service can be used for our evolving needs. It's a great value for $20/month for 10 active projects.
I schedule and conduct simple webmeetings/ conference calls using doodle.com, uberconference.com and joinme.com, a good package for $20/month. I'm still pleased with weebly.com for creating and editing websites, @ $4/month. I'm still looking for a better email marketing service than icontact.com. It gets a 6 out of 10 score from me.
In conclusion, mobility management is all about efficient collaboration, and with web tools we can efficiently manage the communications essential for collaboration. Many tools have apps for mobile devices and the Google Chrome browser. Take the first step and try these out.
