project management


The biggest challenge for remote work is not being in the same physical space that your coworkers or employees. With the Covid-19 contingency,  it’s more important than ever to be able to track your project’s progress, especially if your business is struggling to stay afloat.   



There’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to track your project’s progress or see which tasks you should be focusing on. Certainly, just because your employees are in different places; doesn’t mean that your work has to be all over the place as well.  

Thanks to technology we have many tools to choose from that offer us everything we need to work with the same level of productivity even remotely.  

Physical distance is not an obstacle anymore.  

The only thing you need to succeed in remote working is one shared central place for all of your work that allows you to quickly assess who’s working on what, and discuss work in context.  This is a project management tool.   

With your employees being isolated from each other you need to provide them with a tool that enables everything they can need to do their job, and that’s exactly what a project management tool is for. 

Why you need a project management tool?

A huge benefit of a project management tool is the ability to seamlessly collaborate across your company. In addition to your team members and external collaborators such as clients, vendors, and stakeholders as well.  

Most importantly your employees are able to see where their tasks fit into the bigger picture of the project and what everyone else is working on.   

Using a centralized project management software, minimizes the need for meetings with all the members of your company and even with the external collaborators; because above all you’re providing them with all the information, updates and status of the work in real-time. Plus it only takes a few seconds to share the proper information with anyone, anywhere at any time.  

Track your team’s productivity 

For many teams, tracking time spent on tasks is required to monitor productivity. When time tracking is built-in to the task management software, the team is much more likely to adopt it because they don’t have to download any additional apps.

A  project management tool centralizes communication and collaboration.  



You can easily comment on tasks and projects to communicate quickly with all your employees and clients without the need for long email chains. 

Document and file sharing is another crucial element for collaboration and communication. When you use a project management tool that allows you to centralize your file sharing, it’s much easier to find exactly what you need to work on each task and project. 

 A project management tool not only gives you the ability to assign tasks to team members quickly; but also allows you to monitor their progress and reassign resources as needed to get the work done faster. 

When you have a project management software remote work becomes so much simpler. Thanks to the collaboration, communication, file sharing, budget tracking, time tracking, and delegation features.
