Cozimo – The Easiest Way to Collaborate Online


Collaborating on web pages and images can be long and tedious. They have to go through multiple hands, and everyone has different ideas on what should be changed. Wouldn’t it be easier if there was a place project groups could get together and talk about what needs to be changed – without having to be together?

Meet Cozimo, your new best friend. Cozimo is an online collaboration application which makes editing and conversing on multiple file types easier than ever. All your group members can sign on and make changes and talk on one page, making everyone’s work quicker and simpler. This way, everyone doesn’t waste time fixing the same mistake. Instead of marking up a page and waiting for an answer, your Cozimo group members can answer you instantly via the site.

Cozimo’s interface is nearly perfect. The overview page is flawless and everything you could possibly need is easily accessible. On a collaboration page, you can turn on and off all of your group members markups, which could potentially be cluttering the page. You can turn them on one at a time and simply agree or disagree with the change by commenting in the live feed on your screen.

Practical Uses:

  • Collaborate with a project group on the new front page graphic of a Web site
  • Compare group members participation and quality of work
  • Keep track of all current ongoing projects in one place

Insider Tips:

  • Upload all kinds of file types, from .pdf to .mp3
  • Check out their blog updates for new updates and upcoming information
  • Set restrictions for who can see what on each project

What we liked:

  • Complete control over everything in your work group
  • Multiple levels of pricing means there is an option for everyone
  • No need for emails, as direct messaging is built into the interface

What we didn’t like:

  • There shouldn’t be a cap on the $249 plan, but there is: 20 GB.
