Running an IT company is all about managing teams, handling constantly changing client requirements and meeting deadlines. And mind you handling all this is by no means a fairytale. In fact, if we look at the numbers they speak for themselves. A survey found that 54% of IT projects fail due to improper project management and only 3% doesn’t work as a result of technical challenges.
And there are numerous reasons behind it. But thanks to the rise of project management software, it has now become easy to deal with all the challenges faced by IT teams while handling projects.
Talking about meeting the challenges, let us have a look at some of the ways these online project management tools help IT teams to bring sanity in their life -
An online project management software gives you just the same experience. It saves you from the frustration of going through long email threads. An advanced project management system offers features like task management, collaboration and reporting; eliminating the need of exchanging emails altogether.
Again, project management software is the answer. Ask your team members to update their work in the tool. This way, you get to know what they are up to and what’s the project status, both in no time.
Now that we use the software, the team is able to keep everything organized at one place. The software allows you to keep anything and everything in it. Apart from storing your files and documents, the software lets you maintain notes in it, helping to save your ideas and thoughts instantly.
I will close the article with a quote by Bill Gates - “Information technology and business are becoming inextricably interwoven. I don't think anybody can talk meaningfully about one without the talking about the other”.
These are just a few of the top benefits you get using the tool. There’s a lot more in the list. I would suggest you to try the tool to experience every bit of it.
