In May, we introduced our service VNClagoon LIVE – our reference implementation of several VNClagoon products to showcase our complete communication and collaboration stack with superior features, utmost security, great design and cool user interfaces.
What is VNClagoon LIVE?
VNClagoon LIVE is a reference implementation of several VNClagoon products. During this Coronacrisis, we are offering some VNClagoon LIVE services for free (for individual users) or for a reasonable fee to cover our costs.
Today, two new services were added to our VNClagoon LIVE platform, so we now have the complete collaboration suite available:
- VNCmeet: The perfect service for fast and efficient real time communication (Messenger, Audio/Video Conferencing, Screensharing and more)
- VNCgroupware: The all-in-one Groupware including Email, Calendar, Contact Management and Briefcase
- VNCteamwork: 360° Task and Project Management
Our VNClagoon LIVE service is available as a full featured Web Client in your browser, Desktop Client (Windows, Mac, Linux) and an App (Android and iOS). To install the Desktop Clients or the Apps, please check our Downloads page.
With VNCmeet, the VNClagoon LIVE users have access to our state of the art messenger and real-time communication service including chat, audio and video conferencing, screensharing, broadcast and document collaboration.
VNCmeet is powered by VNCtalk.
VNCgroupware consists of VNCmail, VNCcontacts and VNCcalendar to deliver an all-in-one groupware experience and thus delivers professional email features, a very granular contact management and calendar functionality on top. You may also store files and attachments in the VNCmail briefcase to have immediate access to documents on the go and wherever you are. Collaborative work has never been easier.
VNCteamwork consists of VNCtask for individual users and an optional extension to VNCproject for organizations. VNCteamwork delivers 360° task and project management to enable you to get your work done efficiently, on time and stress free.
VNCtask is a professional planner for your everyday to-dos and helps you to keep track of all your tasks at all times. VNCproject enables you to bring project planning and management to a whole new level. VNCproject comprises enterprise grade features such as Gantt charts, (meta) roadmaps, team capacity planning, agile boards and much more.
What motivated us to launch VNClagoon LIVE?
2020 so far has been a year of challenges for many of us – regarding physical and mental health as well as financial stability. All of a sudden, organizations were forced to consider work from home as a necessity for their teams. And the curse seems to have turned into a blessing just a few months later, as the advantages of remote work in the long term (even without Covid-19 induced contact restrictions and distancing rules) have become fairly obvious. With reliable and secure software, clear goals, effective collaboration, less time lost due to time-consuming face-to-face meetings and tiresome business trips, productivity can even be increased in many organizations.
Therefore, we launched VNClagoon LIVE as a reference implementation of several VNClagoon products. You can test the products of our complete communication and collaboration suite and you can work with them productively.
Our aim is to offer the best, transparent and fair service possible:
- All VNClagoon products are based upon open source platforms and thus are auditable.
- We use open source technologies for our infrastructure, no black boxes.
- We protect our users and we don’t sell your data!
The 3 basic principles of VNC are: Virtual Organization, Learning Organization and Open Source. VNClagoon is the toolset to serve these principles. We at VNC have been working in international teams for many years. Our expert teams from all over the world are working from wherever they’re based. For us, it’s not necessary to travel frequently to physical meetings or to even relocate, which would also increase the company’s carbon footprint.
For example, with VNCproject (as part of VNCteamwork), everyone can see which tickets and tasks are urgent and what the granular status of current projects is, VNCcalendar shows when colleagues are busy and VNCtalk can resolve the time consuming email or ticket ping pong with either a quick chat or a video call. Of course you can easily switch to audio calls in case of low bandwidth (or a “bad hair day” 🙂 ).
VNClagoon LIVE keeps your teams connected. It contains the most important components to efficiently work in virtual environments, wherever your are.
With VNCmeet, VNCteamwork and VNCgroupware you get the complete “office suite” wherever you go. Emails, video conferences, chat and project management on almost any device you can imagine. If you have a modern fridge with an integrated browser – even while your pasta gets done 😉
