Zoho Projects is one of the most popular project management tools on the market. It is a straightforward, web-based program that allows you to collaborate with your team. Projects make sure that any business venture can be completed in a cooperative and organized manner. Many of the businesses that we work with at The Marks Group have teams that work together from across the country. Zoho Projects is the perfect digital meeting space so everyone can work together on a shared business goal. Here, we’ve compiled three of the best reasons why you should use Projects.
1: Planning Is Key
Full disclosure: I’m a big picture person, and have the tendency to charge bravely ahead with a project without thinking all of the pieces that need to be done. Needless to say, this has gotten me in a logistical pickle more than once. Enter in Zoho Projects. In the project planning portion of the program, you are able to break down everything needs to do be done in to tasks. Once these tasks are created you can assign them to members of your team, and even create sub-tasks to further delegate. Like the Zoho CRM, you can choose a list view, or the Japanese Kanban style. No matter how you use it- Zoho Projects will get any project you’re tackling off to a strong start.
2: Communicate, Communicate, Communicate
As I mentioned before, many of the businesses that we work with have employees all over the globe. Zoho Projects understands that and makes communicating easier than ever with it’s feed feature. What is a feed? Think of social media… Project feeds is a message board where you can post questions, updates, drop files and more. This is an alternative to sending emails or phone calls and allows your project team to collaborate in a quick and streamlined manner.
3: Report On Your Progress with Zoho Projects
One of the hallmarks of the Zoho business suite is that all of the programs work seamlessly together. Zoho Projects is no different. Using the Zoho Reports program, you can run over 50 reports about the efficiency of your projects. Importing information from reports will allow you to track any metrics of your projects. You can customize this feature so you can follow the things that are important to you. One of the benefits of running reports is that you can evaluate and then change your team’s workflow based on the data gathered from your reports.
