I love the English language because some words have so many meanings it can confuse the crap out of anyone trying to learn English. There are words that sound the same but mean something entirely different. One example that comes to mind are the words threw and through.
There are also many words that can have several meanings, one that comes to mind is huddle. A huddle can be a person who draws themselves into a crouch or it can be a group of people that crowd closely together. In sports a huddle is when the coach or captain of the team gathers them all together for a pep talk or to discuss strategy. I’ve chosen a nice image to illustrate this type of huddle. The reason I chose this picture should be quite evident to those who know me.
But I didn’t get you here just to look at a lovely huddle of nice butts. No sirree, I got you here to introduce you to an online huddle, one that many of you will find quite useful.
This particular Huddle is an online site that gives you “simple, secure online work spaces containing powerful project and collaboration tools. Huddle is hosted, there’s no software to download and it’s free to get started.” Yep, you can do it all online with not a thing to download to your computer.
Huddle will allow you to;
- Manage your projects
- Share and store files online
- Create and edit documents online
- Allow you to have group discussions
- Allows you to invite as many users as you need
A London based company it’s used by thousands of users including major companies such as Panasonic, Kia Motors, Nokia, P&G and even major charities such as UNICEF. The main advantage of Huddle is that it allows groups of people to brainstorm online, thereby allowing them to work effectively over vast distances.
So, if you have ever had the need to share a file, to manage your calendar or any of your many daily tasks then Huddle is for you. If you have the need to get a group of people that reside in far off parts of the country or even the world you will find that Huddle will help you out, and don’t forget that because it is completely web based there is absolutely nothing to install.
Naturally, the best way to test to see if it will do all that I say it does is to take it for a spin, and now would be the ideal time to give it a try as they are offering a month’s free trial, just click on the following link. Huddle Accounts – 1 Month Free Trial!
One last thing, in addition to Huddle’s Iphone app, they’re also the official collaboration application for well know social networks such as LinkedIn.com, Ning.com, Xing.com and Facebook.com. Just thought I should mention that before I forgot.
Once you’ve taken it for a spin I would love if you would take the time to come back and let the rest of us know exactly what you thought of it.
