|13 March 2011|
Two months after the launch of GroupCamp Project (http://www.groupcamp.com/en/online-project-management), its web-based project management software for businesses, GroupCamp now announces support for single sign on(SSO) authentication using user Google Accounts or Google Apps credentials.
With this integration, users can use their regular email address and password to sign into their collaborative project management workspace. Users may also attach multiple Google credentials to sign into their accounts.
For companies who do not have a GroupCamp account, they can now also subscribe to a GroupCamp offering using their Google or Google apps credentials.
« We want to offer a seamless sign in experience to our users who still have email as their most important business application, and a very significant proportion of our customers have Gmail or Google Apps accounts » according to Dickel SOORIAH, co-founder of GroupCamp.
The support of single-sign on authentication is a first step towards the integration of GroupCamp Project’s file sharing and task management applications with Gmail’s Google Doc or Google Calendar.
Group your GroupCamp accounts
In addition to the support for SSO, GroupCamp now also allows users with multiple accounts to group all their groupcamp credentials and therefore sign into each one of their accounts from the same browser.
« GroupCamp Project natively supports multi-company collaboration. Our customers are therefore very often invited into multiple GroupCamp accounts. With this new feature they can seamlessly move from one account to the other within the same browser. »
