That eStudio is further divided, with sections for confidential meetings between certain team members. eStudios can be accessed anytime, anywhere and by an unlimited number of people. Those who are now using eStudios can¹t imagine how they conducted business previously. Like the cell phone and the fax, eStudios are quickly becoming a workflow necessity. This is especially true in communication arts arenas where so much depends on getting graphic, audio, video, animated and multi-media files to key people as expeditiously as possible. "

These include a new file update notification feature; a feature identifying eStudio users who are logged on at any given time; access to a graphic designer store and links to stock image houses; a fed-ex and UPS tracking feature; and a toolbar that enhances project management by facilitating other aspects of day-to-day busines such as sending an e-fax, obtaining stock quotes, acquiring a credit report, applying for a business loan, performing a name/phone/address search, or even purchasing a last-minute gift right from the user's eStudio. will incorporate telephone conferencing, once that technology becomes available on a cross-platform basis. Confirms Collen, "We made a commitment to our users that would have cross-platform access and would require no additional software. Telephone conferencing is available now, but only on a PC platform and with complicated software. In keeping with our mission statement, we¹re waiting until the technology reaches a more advanced state."

In addition to telephone conferencing, eStudios will soon offer whiteboarding, which enables users to annotate files online in real time. is constantly evolving.
