Project management apps are a brilliant way for your team to work on projects from their mobile devices. They enable your employees to track and deliver information and keep track of all project activity, increasing productivity and interactivity, enhancing communication and collaboration, with the easy and instant access, and the range of dynamics it offers, as well as it being a more practical way to work.
When using project management apps, you will need to consider whether you will be using your app internally or externally. If you’re using your app externally with clients, this will allow you to keep them updated on the status of your project together with a project status report app via a dashboard with daily updates, or a newsfeed, as well as updating your client with general information about the project.
Using an app can save a lot of time. For example, your employees can use it to update data, as well as export it, rather than having to go through a spreadsheet each time. There is also the possibility to send reports directly to your client’s mobile device, cutting down the time spent navigating emails, and as such, increasing productivity. You can use the app similarly to communicate with and update upper-level management too.
Using a project management app internally allows for the whole team to be kept up to date and access all information and documents available in this central hub. You could create milestones for your team to reach, helping everyone keep to a schedule and achieve targets in a timely fashion. Push notifications can be set up as progress reports, and you could enable updates to inform your employees of where everybody is at with the project. When setting out tasks on the app, you could also include tags allowing for quick navigation.
With a project management app, you can create profiles with each team member’s contact information, making it easy for everyone to get in touch with each other throughout the project via phone call or email with a quick tap of an icon.
You could create a document library to keep all of your project’s documents stored and organised, allowing for others involved access to what they need, when they need it, wherever they are.
As you can see, these kinds of apps are great for keeping everyone working as a team, no matter where they are in the world, or what time it is. There is also the advantage of being able to set up a chat room or social networking feature, to increase and sustain good communication throughout the project. You could even send out a regular newsletter to ensure everyone is on the same page, and at the same stage at all times.
Project management apps are a great way not only to communicate and update your client, ensuring you stand out as a business, but to enhance the quality and efficiency of employee output.
