Collaboration between different teams is often difficult, especially when it comes to professionals working with images, such as designers, project managers, and agencies.
That’s why Cage is a tool that provides a complete overview of the project workflow to all team members, allowing them to carry out group tasks or tasks linked to those of their colleagues more quickly.
There are numerous features that can help teams organize their work: assigning estimated times to tasks, using annotations (sketches, highlighted words, etc.), assigning tasks, and much more.
“The interactive, collaborative online whiteboard to bring teams together, anytime, anywhere.” Miro allows teams to work on the same platform, at the same time, being able to see in real-time the changes made by colleagues and interact with them.
It can also be used for online brainstorming, creating diagrams, planning, concept maps, notes.
To facilitate the construction of projects, Miro provides customizable templates to which you can add images and files, and can be integrated with apps like Trello, Zoom, Slack, and many others.

Within a team, it is not only important to coordinate tasks, but often it is also necessary to work synergistically on the same documents. Among the sharing tools, it is impossible not to mention Google Drive, which allows you not only to have all the documentation stored in a single platform, and to organize it as you wish, but also to work within the same file with colleagues and clients.
To find the archived contents you’ll just have to type a keyword in the search bar to discover all the documents named with it and find what you were looking for.
Need a document created by a colleague but don’t know how it was named? Searching by keywords isn’t the only solution.
Paragraphs is a web app that speeds up your search by allowing you to directly find the information you are looking for, without having to remember how a document was named or where it is located.
After uploading your documents to the platform, just type the question you are looking for an answer to: Paragraphs will extract for you, directly from your documentation, the paragraph containing the information you need.
At the moment the individual version allows you to search for content and create new documents that can be shared with the team. Soon the team version will be available where you can create real libraries shared with colleagues and customers.
