Abstract: One of the current practical challenges of modern astronomy is to effectively manage collaborations between a geographically diverse network of scientists using multi-wavelength facilities. Here, we present a web application designed to integrate the main functions needed in a collaboration, in a format which can be used on mobile devices or desktops. The web application supports instant messaging, data exchange, campaign management, access to a database of objects, visibility checking, a database of relevant publications and access to standard resources such as Simbad, Vizier and NED.
