A co-op is defined as a workplace that is owned and managed by the workers, rather than a head manager or boss. The website Co-Op doesn’t exactly follow this model, but it is a way for workers to stay connected with each other. In this day and age, employees are often buried in their computer screens. Much of the correspondence is done through email, rather than via the phone. Co-Op aims to enhance the office web experience through an online application.
Say, for example, that there is an office project with a deadline. Coopapp.com lets users log-in to see any important updates about the project, without having to slow down the workplace with unnecessary meetings or conversations. Office mates can add notes about progress – a sort of in-house Twitter feed, as well as update the status of important parts of a project that have been completed.
In addition, Co-Op allows people on the project to share more personal information in the site’s “watercooler.” Co-Op aims to mimic much of the attributes of an office but in a webspace where users can perform a lot of an office’s daily actions in less time and with more efficiency.
