Google wave made public just in time…
…for us to buck it. We’ve embraced and criticized Wave in the past during its beta phase, but it is now out of beta and open to all. Wave hasn’t caught on in the real estate industry quite like it could have, but the bottom line is that collaborative software isn’t a trend, it is changing the way businesses operate. Teams function better, communities run more smoothly and even customer service issues can be handled with tools like Google Wave.
That said, we’ve switched from Wave to what I believe is a better (and equally free) tool – Flowdock. Flowdock has a better user interface, is more intuitive, more private, offers tracking by tagging and even gives you a unique email address (so, say clients email you at firstname.lastname@example.org, it shows up in your Flowdock dashboard where you and your team can take notes on who is addressing it and what stage it is in).
Several AG writers helped me test out Flowdock and it has been a great way to swap files, ideas and have general conversation. I’ll let them opine in the comments, but I’ll simply say that we use it for AG and our personal business and love it!
