Asengana is a SaaS (Software as a Service) platform. It is an online writing software and a project management tool based on Kanban method. The functionalities of the platform are consolidated towards managing your book as a project.
The modules you have access in the beginning are:
Manuscript Module – Manuscript v1.0 PLANTSER
The Manuscript module gives access to full content of your story, one-page view, and an easy way to navigate to a specific chapter or scene.
Project Management Module – Asengana Kanban v1.0
Instead of using various software or paper to save/organize your research notes, location descriptions, character profiles and so on, the Project Management menu allows to keep everything structured and easy to reach. A major advantage is the enhanced component allowing for embedded video, images and Google Map localization.
We provide analytics that go beyond the number of words you write every day. You will have statistics of the number of written words, but also analytics based on the project management tool, so you could plan better and meet your deadline.
Export and Backup Module
You can activate the auto-save feature and save several different drafts for each book. You can export the Manuscript as well as the entire project in case you are writing a series and you want to create a new project using the same characters/locations/etc.
We are also working on the functionality to export your project to external online file hosting services (Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.)
You will find a big DELETE button on your “My account” page. From my experience with other online software, the thing I hated the most was not being able to delete my account anytime I wanted. It’s a mistake we don’t do.
Before you delete your account, be sure you saved your projects. We won’t keep any backup of your information once you delete your account.
We decided on an unusual pricing strategy. The cost of the initial subscription must be equal with the average money spent on coffee by a writer who writes his book on a laptop in a coffee shop.
The early adopters will pay 50% of the monthly subscription.
If, by accident, you stop your subscription payment, we will limit you account. This means you will have access only to download your projects as they were in the last day of your subscription. Your writing is your own.
You can reactivate your account anytime and start your projects from where you left them. If you were paying a discounted subscription, when you reactivate your account will pay the full monthly amount. Also, these interruptions will block your access to Asengana Awards and other benefits that the full year members have.
As member of the Asengana Community, you have access to the Writing Platform, all the updates/improvements, and the future Asengana Marketplace. You can access the Asengana Writing Platform with any browser (the most up-to-date version) from a PC, laptop or mobile device.
Our goal is to offer free access to all writers, but for now we will focus on our early adopters, the writers that subscribe before the official launch. A FREE lifetime membership comes as a reward for helping our community grow. The details about this will be personalized on every member Profile page.
Are your projects safe on the Asengana Writing Platform? Yes.
Your projects are secured with a double encryption method. We use SSL certification and Database Encryption and a backup system that allows us to keep and/or restore our platform in a matter of hours.
