As the first release using an updated Traction platform architecture, Traction TeamPage 4.2 combines wiki, blog, social tagging, discussion and social networking capabilities in a secure, scalable collaboration platform.

“With Traction customers in consulting and professional services as well as the pharmaceutical, manufacturing, high tech and government industries, we often see people using BlackBerry and other mobile email devices as much or more than their desktop or laptop Web browsers,” said Traction’s CEO Greg Lloyd. “We defined and developed these capabilities by collaborating with TeamPage customers in professional service firms who love their BlackBerry email as much as they love TeamPage in their browser. These new subscription features bring Enterprise 2.0 collaboration to the road warrior, making it easy to get a clean and simple summary including automatically generated context.”

Easily subscribe to people, pages, projects, edits or discussions

TeamPage 4.2 customers can click a subscribe button next to any article, personal profile or project space header to select email or Jabber notifications on new content, edits or conversations. A simple popup form gives a fine degree of control over the articles, projects, people, tags, files, and folders you want to watch, with a consolidated watch list shown in each person’s profile. Individuals can set a preference to automatically get regular updates to comments on or changes to articles they post, as well as to threads they comment on.

Use your BlackBerry or other phones to collaborate by email

TeamPage 4.2 makes it simple to reply to a Traction discussion, comment, article or paragraph. Using built-in logic for common email clients including Outlook, BlackBerry and iPhone Mail, TeamPage automatically recognizes and cleans up notification information resulting in simple and readable email notification and reply, making life easier for email lovers as well as those who like to edit and comment using TeamPage’s Web interface for smart phone, laptop or desktop browsers.
