Take Another Look at MetaTeam

We are very excited to announce commercial availability of MetaTeam, Altova’s unique online team collaboration andproject management environment. If you didn’t get a chance to try MetaTeam during its beta testing phase, now is the time. You can still try MetaTeam free for 30 days.
Why MetaTeam?
We all know the frustrations of teamwork. Files lost in emails. Passed bucks. Language barriers. Missed opportunities on one hand and rework on the other. Collaboration wasn’t supposed to like that!
We canvased our customers, partners, and colleagues across industries and around the world. To no one’s surprise, we found these problems are universal. And the cost is huge. In fact, studies find that well over 50% of project teams fail¹ to hit their budgets, schedules, or objectives.
Many products have tried to put a quick fix on the problem with more advanced scheduling or prioritization tools for specialists. Other products offer general purpose unstructured collaboration that allows for anything and typically improves nothing.
We believe there is a better way. And we developed MetaTeam to prove that tools for high performance teamwork can deliver real impact.
What Sets MetaTeam Apart?
MetaTeam was designed from the ground up with simplicity in mind. It’s immediately accessible for business users from all areas of activity – that means there’s no learning curve, no training required. Its interface is clean, clear, and easy to navigate, with clearly labeled features that are intuitive to use. The most unique aspect of MetaTeam is that it is the only tool of its kind to combine the three aspects vital for successful teamwork: project management, team collaboration, and structured decision making.
As you can see in the screenshot below, MetaTeam delivers these functions through five tightly integrated zones: To-Dos and Task Management, Roles & Responsibilities, Decision Making, Knowledge Integration, and Consistent Language.
