Siasto – An Integrated Project Management Solution

Busy professionals who manage a dozen or more projects at a time will appreciate Siasto, a project management tool that developers, designers, consultants, recruiters, HR reps, and everyday individuals can use to keep their workflows under control.

Siasto may seem a lot like competing project management applications Basecamp and Zoho on the surface, but beneath the exterior lies a treasure trove of useful tools and features that competing applications don’t yet provide. Get started with Siasto by entering your name and email address, or log in directly through Google Apps. All the information you need to manage your team members and any ongoing projects or tasks is laid out on your main dashboard page. This dashboard page is where you’ll also find a list of tasks that need to be completed, recent updates to your workflow, and a comprehensive online calendar. Tasks can be sorted by due date or colleague, and you can separate tasks to see only those that have been completed or are actively going on right now.

What really separates Siasto from competing project management applications is its document uploading and storage sections. Siasto integrates with both Google Docs and Dropbox, which means you can quickly transfer and edit files from these services with the click of a button. For Google-devotees in search of a new project management application, Siasto is definitely worth trying out.
