If you’re a web designer or developer, your work involves some teamwork and collaboration. Even when you’re working on a personal project it never hurts to have someone you can rely on. You might need somebody for guidance, assistance, or fresh ideas.

Software projects have a reputation for late deliveries and budget overruns. These often occur due to a lack of insufficient collaboration among the parties.

Setting up a manual system that promotes collaboration can be a good step forward. But it often requires extra effort to keep it functioning smoothly. There is a better approach to it. Invest in a tool that makes sharing information and design concepts a breeze.

These tools fill the bill nicely.

1. Mason

Mason is a front-end-as-a-service tool. Its users can design, build, deploy, and maintain products from a single platform. Since all information is kept in one place, there’s no fragmentation of data or information exchanged during any phase of the design/build/deploy cycle.

Mason works in ways that may at first appear unfamiliar, but nevertheless makes sense. It assembles digital products by breaking them down into their constituent parts and reassembling them using a drag-and-drop building block approach. In this way, it’s far easier to make small changes or modifications not only during design, but after the product has been deployed.

The net result, and a major advantage of using Mason, is that changes can be made to deployed digital products without the need to wait for the next deployment cycle. Changes can literally be made on the spot.

It costs nothing to use Mason during design and testing. You only pay when the product is to be viewed by downstream customers.
