I am an Indian who spent 15 years in Japan and currently living in Sweden. My professional interest is to create innovative web and mobile applications.
ImaHima in Japanese means “are you free now?” and is the name of a mobile location-based social-networking service created in 1999 by my Japanese company ImaHima. ImaHima pioneered the concept of sharing current status [location, activity, mood] among friends using mobile phones.
Since then, I have built several other internet services and my latest project is Colabolo, which is a light-weight issue-tracking software for small teams.
Can you give an insight into your flaship product Colabolo ?
Colabolo grew out of my own needs for a better way to manage the tasks and communication within my company. Email is very flexible tool but lacks organization and sharing. Excel or MS-Project have structure but no communication. Colabolo is a communication & collaboration tool that fits somewhere between email and project management software. It is perfect for simple task delegation and assignment between team members.
Compared to other software in this category, it is much simple to use and integrates with email so it can automatically create tasks from incoming email. It can reduce the volume and clutter of email. You can find a 40-second video demo of Colabolo here
Who are the target customers for Colabolo ?
Colabolo’s current feature set is useful for freelancers and small-medium size teams. It is ideal for teams that collaborate using computers or mobile phones sharing a large volume of tasks that need to be completed.
