Effective project management is at the core of each and every successful project undertaken by your business. Having the ability to plan, track progress, and collaborate in within a project can easily turn complex projects into much more manageable ones. Being able to easily do things like automate workflows, keep track of budgets, track critical paths, and integrate with other commonly used workplace solutions will ensure that each and every project undertaken by your organization in the future will be successful. Zoho Projects is a project management solution that lets you take back control of every aspect of a workplace project – from the assignment of tasks to reporting and invoicing, Zoho Projects does it all.
Task management made easy
Breaking up projects into tasks not only helps to make them more manageable, but also goes a long way in recognizing milestones and assigning certain aspects of each project to specific team members. Zoho Projects makes creating and assigning tasks easy, letting project managers add description, start and end dates, owners, and more. Managers can also create milestones within each project, signalling to your team when they’ve reached a major benchmark in the project and allowing for reflection. Zoho Projects also features a dependencies feature to help better prioritize tasks and ensure that things are done in the proper order. Every aspect of a project’s task management can be easily viewed from the calendar in Zoho Projects, giving your team a glimpse at where your project is in its lifespan.
Get the entire team involved with social project management features
Throughout the lifespan of any collaborative projects, it’s important that project managers keep everybody in the loop in order to maximize efficiency and effectiveness. Zoho Projects features social media channel features that makes it easy for the entire team to become involved, stay updated, and feel like they’re a valuable part of the team. Team members have unique profile pages, and can post comments at any time and mention other users within relevant discussions so that nobody gets left out of important conversations or milestone celebrations. The Zoho Projects social media channels features a real time feed that lets your team organize meetings, celebrate achievements, and keep people posted about what’s going on in a project or specific task. Chat features also work to tencourage communication within your project teams, bringing teams closer together no matter where they’re working from
Track time and create comprehensive reports
Generating accurate invoices has never been easier thanks to Zoho Projects time tracking features, which helps to track billable and non-billable hours, and quickly turn timesheets into invoices. From there, invoices can be sent directly to clients from Zoho Projects, eliminating the need for generating project invoices in a separate app. Charts and reports also gives your team instant access to relevant project data and progress reports that make it easy to determine the success of any project. Resource utilization charts let project managers view which team members are being overloaded with work, and which ones can afford to take on some extra tasks. Zoho Projects integrates seamlessly with Zoho Reports, giving you instant access to in-depth analytics about any aspect of your projects.
