TimeCamp Launches New Tool, HeySpace

Pawel Kijko

Online tracking software TimeCamp recently announced the launch of its new tool, HeySpace. This software allows users to create task sheets at a conversational level. The tool provides separate, though closely connected, channels that enable communication between employees and the task/project manager. HeySpace also allows users to import tasks from current software such as Asana, Trello, Jira, Todoist and Wrike. Pawel Kijko is CMO at TimeCamp.

The HeySpace tool was inspired by an internal need for combining the communication of Slack with the task management function offered by apps such as Trello. Combining both features in a single tool allows for greater integration of projects.

Stribling & Associates recently created a live data center to provide transparency and heightened data integrity, which will help users navigate the complicated and crowded world of New York City real estate data. Ashley Murphy is director of public relations at the luxury NYC real estate firm. Developed in-house, Stribling Analytics is an interactive online station that offers real-time housing data to both real estate professionals and consumers. It is the first program of its kind to cover current inventory, contracts signed and recorded sales metrics across Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. All you have to do is log on to data.stribling.com and create an account.

There is a real data reporting issue in NYC. All of the different brokerages and agencies release quarterly or monthly reports, and they all tell a different story. Stribling & Associates wants to offer people the chance to check out the website, interact with the data, and realize it isn’t as scary as it seems. Consumers are capable of making their own decisions. This simply helps to make the process easier.
