DeskAway was developed in 2006,[4] taking off on the concept that businesses function more efficiently using a central system to collaborate and track work as opposed to traditional methods like email or spreadsheets.[5] Finally, in late 2007 DeskAway was launched to the public. Since then it has been updated with new social features,[6] user interface customizations and changes.


DeskAway provides project and task management, milestone, issues, wiki-style document management, task lists, file sharing,[7] internal blogs, calendar, contacts, messaging, personal email reminders, reports, user interface customizations, security, and integration with FreshBooks and Google Apps. On August 2010 it was included on the Google Apps Marketplace.[8]
