It continues to become more clear why managing a project online is so beneficial. Here are some of the top benefits.
1: Access Your Project From Anywhere
If you have team members that work from home, different offices, or even different countries, everyone can access the same thing!
It also frees you from having to work at the same computer in the same spot all the time. You can work from the office, coffee shop, your home computer, or even a mobile device.
2: No Software to Install
With web based software, you don't have to go through the hassle of downloading, installing and dealing with annoying software update messages. When you use online software, you don't have to worry about any of this! It's all done for you. Just log in and you have the latest updates.
3: Everyone Sees the Same Thing
As soon as one of your teammates makes a change to your project, you can see what they did. There is no need to go through the painful sync process anymore. Everyone is working off of the same database. Project information is all realtime.
4: Better Communication
When your project is managed online, more information is stored online. Other members of your project can view this without sending emails back and forth. Some examples of information that does not need to be emailed:
- New Tasks - New tasks can be created, scheduled and assigned to the responsible person all in the software
- Status of Current Tasks - Other users can update percent complete of their tasks. This way there is no need to constantly be emailing status updates.
- Files - Keep your files in one central place so that everyone can have access when they are needed. With TeamGantt, you can even keep track of multiple versions of each file.
- Quick Comments on Tasks - Keep track of discussions about tasks all in one place. You can even have have comments optionally emailed out to users to make sure that communication is quick and effective.
