Managing an international project involving partners from different countries and various institutions is a challenging task. In such a project, with a dispersed international team, proper communication and documentation management seems to be of crucial importance in achieving the project success. For this purpose, appropriate plans, procedures and rules must be established, as well as an effective software tool used. The present paper concentrates on the latter issue and concerns an EU co-financed project BalticMuseums: Love IT! The main goal of the paper is to determine the functionalities and features of a tool supporting communication and documentation processes in this project. The study bases on the opinions and experiences of practitioners employed in the BalticMuseums: Love IT! project.
