This comes from Rajarama Rao Bennengala, Vice President Programs of PMI Pune – Deccan India Chapter.
“PMI Pune-Deccan India Chapter had adopted Kommbox to streamline its communications related to operations of the chapter, specially related to the key events like our OnTarget conferences. OnTarget is the annual flagship event of PMI Pune chapter, whose preparations are done over 6 months by a team of over 50 volunteers.
We used Kommbox primarily to defining tasks, assign to performers and track them for closure. Kommboxes being context-sensitive, it offered a natural separation of concerns.
We realized that the centralization of the task repositories and replacing all traditional email communications with the communication within the kommboxes resulted in increasing the openness of the communication within the teams and enabled the management to track all ongoing tasks at one place in a sorted list. It could have clearly been very cumbersome to track the progress of all those tasks in email.
We also realized savings of time for the contributors who don’t have to write long emails for the status and also all the discussions canned for each of the tasks.
Based on the feedback from the application of kommbox during OnTarget 2014 conference, the chapter has decided to extend the use of kommbox for all operational purposes.
We wish all the best for kommbox and count on your team for continued support.”
