Running your own business can sometimes feel like you’re making a series of decisions, often with limited idea of what the outcomes will be. You trust your gut instinct to help you take your business forward, but you know there is probably more you can do to help boost business and take your company to the next level.
In this blog, we’re exploring the specific issues that come with team working and how to patch up some of the gaps of collaborative project work with software that will tick all the boxes.
Why Bring in New Software?
If you’ve worked as part of a team or have people under you doing just that, you’ll know how vital it is to organise and assign roles. All too quickly a project can gather momentum and you find it running out of control.
On occasion you find that the team you’ve created isn’t the best fit or isn’t working together as smoothly as they should. This is particularly true if you have a team that is spread out and working remotely away from the office. You might have drivers on the road, who need to keep track of their DOT hours of service compliance or you might have a construction project underway, whatever the project is you’ll need an effective way of keeping in touch.
One such piece of software is Asana, a tried and tested product that has helped bring many a team together. Use it to assign roles, assign tasks and have everyone on board and following the same script.
Tasks can be easily managed and ticked off or adjusted, sending a notification out to all team members when such an action takes place.
Use it to manage your project from start to finish and keep everyone on track.
A great piece of software that sets out projects on cards that are pinned to boards, which can be commented on, adjusted and have due dates added to. An easy, clean and straightforward interface that’s so useful you might even use it to plan your own group holidays and life outside of the office.
When it comes to file sharing and collaborative work on a document, Google Docs is head and shoulders above the rest. Simple to use, easy to share with others and with a clear view of who has commented and where, Google Docs is the go-to software when it comes to file sharing. Dropbox comes a close second, but if you’re using a lot of space up in file storage you will find yourself having to pay for the business service.
When you’re building your business and building your teams into an effective working machine then you want to be able to support them with software that makes life easier. Take a tour around Asana or Trello and easily sign up to Google Docs to make sure everyone is kept in the loop and your projects are kept on track, every time.
