My business plan involves software out-souring and collaboration among designer, programmer, project manager and client. I’v been struggling to think of the way to facilitate such cooperation. But in fact, quite a few start-ups have come up with the tool to assist. They are called Collaborative Diagramming Tool.
Take a look following article from techcrunch which introduced a few tools to use. The world really is getting smaller and starting your business costs much less. No better time than right now to start your own business and realize your business dream.
Cacoo, the browser-based diagramming and design application launched in November 2009, came out of beta today. The Flash tool allows users to create, share and publish wireframes, sitemaps, network diagrams, flow charts, UMLs, etc.
What makes Cacoo stand out is that it lets multiple users in different locations create and edit designs collaboratively and in real-time. Changes to designs shared online, i.e. on a blog or wiki, are reflected in the embedded item automatically and in real-time, which means uploading them again isn’t necessary (more on Cacoo’s main features in our previous coverage).
Next to shedding the beta label, Cacoo maker Nulab has introduced a freemium model, under which the free plan will continue with some restrictions. Users paying $4.95 monthly (or $49 per year) will be able to create unlimited sheets for their designs, export them in more formats (SVG), share diagrams and folders with an unlimited number of people, and more.
