2013. Teamlab launches free alternative to Google Docs and MS Office

The online service Teamlab has gained recognition not only for its collaboration and business management features but also for its impressive online document editors, comparable to Google Docs, MS Office Web Apps, or Zoho Docs. Previously, these editors were exclusively available to paid users of Teamlab. However, today marks the launch of a free productivity tool called Teamlab Personal, which serves as an alternative to Google Drive, Skydrive, and Zoho Docs. This tool offers cloud file storage coupled with office editors. According to Teamlab, it combines the rich formatting features of MS Office with the collaborative tools of Google Docs. Users can upload and edit Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents directly from their computers and even import documents from other online services such as Dropbox, Google Drive, SkyDrive, and Box (note that the latter three services have their own document editors). With Teamlab Personal, you can easily share files with colleagues, co-edit them in real-time, add comments, and even embed documents on your web page.

2013. TeamLab Office 7.5: Gantt Chart, CRM-EMail integration

Users can create, edit, close, reopen, and delete tasks, as well as establish task dependencies within projects. Secondly, the CRM-EMail integration feature enhances customer communication by providing a comprehensive email conversation thread within the contact profile. This enables users to view the entire email history with a client and conveniently send emails directly from the profile or the contact list. This feature proves particularly advantageous when multiple employees are involved in email correspondence with a single customer. Teamlab offers pricing starting at $75 per year for a 5-user subscription.

2013. New collaboration tools in ONLYOFFICE and LibreOffice

Microsoft recently launched the new Office 2013 and as usual with the release of new version there is a number of frustrated users that consider switching to competing products. So now is the best time for Microsoft rivals to push their office-suites. TeamLab (that recently became an "Office") added real-time collaboration feature. Now you can see who is working on a document at the moment, which paragraph he is editing and communicate with co-workers in comments and chat. You can even invite for co-editing users that are not registered in TeamLab. So TeamLab is now like Google Apps - they even set the same price $50/year. Only in Google Apps it's the price for 1 user, while in TeamLab - for 5 users. By the way, TeamLab's pricing is changed again: there is single edition and no free version. ***

2012. Teamlab turns into Office. Takes the free SaaS version back

Three years ago, when Teamlab launched, it positioned itself as a solution for building enterprise portals (though it could be better described as online project management tool). Now (with the release of version 7) the service headed to another edge - turned into Office. No, not a "virtual office", but the Office, a la Microsoft Office. Because now the most valuable part of the service is brand new HTML5 online document editors. This is evident from the new Teamlab price list. The version with editors costs more than 2 times higher than the version without editors. Well, okay, it's just a question of terminology and positioning. The main thing is that Teamlab is still feature-rich and comfortable. It still provides the tools for collaboration, project management and CRM. And is very affordable. And it's up to you to decide, whether to pay for online document editors or use free Google Docs or Office Web Apps. ***

2012. Teamlab SaaS-version becomes paid. 3 good news

Popular collaboration and project management service Teamlab has launched (for beta testing) the new version (v.7) and announced the new pricing policy. Previously almost completely free SaaS version of Teamlab is becoming completely paid. After 6 months, all free users will be asked to start paying. And of course, this is not a good news, but there are three positive aspects. First - is that Teamlab keeps its promises. They really never gave standard promises that "the basic functions will remain forever free." They promised that the "open-source version will remain free forever" - and this promise is fulfilled. You can install this version on your own server and move your projects to it. ***

2011. TeamLab adds CRM module

The impressive freemium online collaboration service, TeamLab, continues to enhance its functionality with an exciting new addition: the CRM module. This user-friendly CRM system within TeamLab encompasses contacts, tasks, opportunities, and cases. Importing contacts from a CSV file is a quick and seamless process. For each contact, you can add notes, tasks, attach files, opportunities, and even link a Twitter blog. Tasks come with email notifications, allowing you to create follow-up call reminders. In the opportunities section, you can plan budgets, gauge success probability, and track progress stages. However, there are no financial reports such as a sales funnel at present. The cases section enables the organization of various marketing events, providing a centralized location for related tasks, contacts, and documents. Access rights to all records can be controlled as needed. Overall, TeamLab's CRM module is impressive, with its only notable limitation being the absence of email integration. However, the TeamLab developers have promised to add an Email module and a mobile version of the CRM system in the near future. Currently, the CRM module is in the beta stage, and no information has been provided regarding whether it will be a paid feature or part of TeamLab's extensive free functionality.

2011. TeamLab Adds Online Docs and Speadsheets

Online collaboration service Teamlab continues to surprise us with its offerings. While it has recently introduced a paid edition, the core functionality remains completely free, and there are no limitations on the number of users. Despite this, the Teamlab developers have dedicated ample time, resources, and enthusiasm to develop their own online document editors instead of integrating existing options like Google Docs or Zoho Docs. Currently, the free version of Teamlab already includes a text editor and spreadsheets, with the presentation editor set to be released soon. Although these applications offer only basic tools, they can handle most day-to-day collaborative tasks with documents. Teamlab allows you to download documents created in DOC and XLS formats and send them to business partners. Additionally, you can upload documents in these formats and edit them online within Teamlab.

2010. TeamLab - free and open-source Basecamp alternative

Teamlab - is a Latvian startup, launched this summer. It's a very interesting collaboration and project management solution, that takes on Basecamp. Teamlab is available as free SaaS service (almost without limitations), or (free) installable open-source system. Taking into account that Teamlab - is really well-made solution with functionality comparable to Basecamp, the question arises: why is it free? According to company representatives, Teamlab was created for own needs and they were so happy with the tool, that decided to share it with others. The company hopes to attract third-party developers to contribute to the product and gain popularity with the freemium model in order to compete with Basecamp on the global market. And then they plan to introduce paid features (with the promise that the open-source version will remain free forever). ***
