Software for Ways of Working – TeamBox
In multi-disciplinary teams with a complex information structure it is important to be able to support acquisition and presentation of all the users efforts with good IT system regardless of where the information is coming from. Textfiles, pdfs, expert application, excel sheets etc all needs to be visualised in a structured and user friendly way. Epsis Teambox is a tool developed for this purpose by giving the end users the possibility to create Info Modules that can easily be executed on any PC.
The tool consists of 2 main parts. A configuration tool where the Info Modules are created and a Player where the modules are executed. The configuration tool gives the users the possibility to mirror the information requirements set by the process, activity, agenda etc. This will secure consistent and efficient execution regardless of who is in charge and where the information is coming from. In addition, it will make sure that decisions will be based on a complete information basis not only a subset.
For the above functionality to take full effect the screens used need to be managed. The available screen area must be divided into smaller parts where information can be presented. Epsis Teambox are capable of doing this in in a very flexible way without any hardware components. The end user can easily manage the screens in order for the information to be presented in appropriated place in the right size. There is no longer a need for external configuration of “black boxes”.
