Every once in a while you stumble upon some real useful applications
Every once in a while you stumble upon some real useful applications and or websites. For a while now I’m using a tool called Goeleven.com. It is a “social website” which allows you to simplify your life and this by means of delegation and task management.
The concept is fairly simple: you add everything that’s on your mind to the site, create some tasks for and then you can start delegating if you have some people in your network which might have exactly that experience or knowledge that you need for the task.
Next to that you can buy extra services in the future to help simplifying your life even more (like for instance ironing services, lawn services, grocery services, etc …)
So actually we can call Goeleven.com the first applied TaaS (Time as a Service).
There’s actually 3 reasons why I blog about this :
- First of all : just because it’s something really helpful and useful, it really works
- Second of all: because it has Azure written all over it. It uses a lot of the Azure platform (things like ACS, Compute, Storage, etc … )
- And third of all (but not least of all) it is written by a swell guy I happen to know, Yves Goeleven (@yvesgoeleven)
The good news is that this service comes for free in a community edition, but of course with limited functionality. It gets more interesting when you’re having one of the paying versions. For now only the Community and the Personal edition are available, but there will more options available in the somewhat near future. There’s also plans for an API set and apps you can purchase.
