Central Desktop Adds New Social Features

Pasadena-based Central Desktop said Tuesday that it has added new social features as part of its online project and collaboration platform. The firm said it has added polls and online presence detection to its suite of tools. Central Desktop’s software-as-a-service is used for managing projects and connecting with co-workers and clients. The new polling feature allows users to gather votes on polls associated with discussions; the presence information provides a list of other users who are also online.

Central Desktop is run by Isaac Garcia, and venture backed by Openview Venture Partners.
