Hotkoko was a SaaS product I designed and built at Koko Interactive in 1999. I was the primary UX designer and architect. It did all kinds of things that were way ahead of its time. Unfortunately, we didn’t know how to sell it or market it. I loved this product.
Designed to be a dashboard of what is happening.
Full blow file management, 10 years before modern “box” services.
Custom Alerts for anything that changed.
Be specific about what and who you want to monitor.
Project management the easy way. I wish I had this tool in JIRA.
Free/Busy before Microsoft popularized it. Sync’d with exchange too!
Full blow web calendar in 1999? Yeah. Compatible with Netscape 4!
My first mail blast app. A 10 year pre-cursor to Marketo.
Email Marketing? What does this thing NOT do?
Contact management, easy on the web
We didn’t call it a CRM, but we could have!
Approval workflow on documents. Awesome feature.
Dynamic menus and threaded discussion. Nice!
Folder Management way before Sharepoint or Box or any of the others.
Extensible system. Way ahead of its time.
Customized permissions all through the web.
Enterprise audit trail. We tracked everything.
Individual access management
Sync’d with Active Directory
Group and individual permissions.
