Duccats Launches Commitment Keeper in Beta Release of Accountability Apps
A very different type of web application was recently launched by Duccats, a new Bellevue Washington enterprise. It is aimed at those who would like to see people take responsibility and be more accountable.
The first piece of Accountability Apps to launch is Commitment Keeper, a “non-social network” application. Whereas the current crop of social networks are all about public messages for the moment, Commitment Keeper is about private commitments with possibly long durations. Only those people immediately involved with a commitment are able to see it. Commitment Keeper features an “agreement engine” that ensures the commitments have been agreed to by the participants before it is put in force. Another part of the program’s accountability model is the resolution feedback. Whether the commitment was successfully fulfilled, or abandoned becomes part of the member’s on-line record.
Commitment Keeper is intended to be used by a wide variety of people such as coaches, teachers, trainers, small business managers, parents, contractors, club members, politicians, or anybody who is looking for improved commitment and accountability. Example uses of the program may be found at http://commitmentkeeper.com for those looking for ways it may help them.
More capabilities for Accountability Apps are coming in the months ahead. This will include ways of making and tracking pledges, agreements, and borrowed items. There is no charge for low levels of use, and minimal charges for those wanting higher levels of items.
