Parmatur Pulse is built to increase interaction between people and hence create an agile decision process in a company. Primarily this interaction takes place at pulse meetings in a pulse room where the participants stand in front of their pulse board. But it is quite common that pulse teams are working on several development sites or that some team members are working from home. So far the solution to connect different locations has been to use a web cam. This works. But remote people have difficulties in really being involved and contribute.
Now there is a solution to running pulse meetings with participants on several locations. We call it Cyber Pulse Board and it is built on technologies from FlatFrog.
You can use an interactive board in your pulse room for projects and management teams where not all members can work in the same location.
If you want to connect two development sites you install two interactive boards, one on each site. If you want to join a pulse meeting meeting from home or when you travel, you connect via your PC.
In both cases you can add and move sticky notes. On the interactive boards you use your fingers. On your PC you use the mouse. You can also add important documents such as the project goal scenario and the synchronization plan.
In Pulse, our system for tracking activities, problems and decisions are both simple and powerful. You can write directly on the interactive boards, but it is much easier to do that on a PC and then share the documents, e.g. with Google Docs or Share Point.
The Cyber Pulse Board can be extended on several pages, which makes it possible to add extra documents or make a quick drawing by hand.
