There are plenty of team management tools out there, but enterprise software often has a learning curve that slows teams down rather than speeding things up. Oftentimes, assigned tasks and overall goals get divvied up among members without an accessible overview of the project as a whole, creating fractured communication and taking the “team” out of “team management.”
monday.com is taking a totally new approach to team management. Their innovative tools boost productivity and collaboration by offering a high-level centralized platform that also lets teams manage every detail of their work. From roadmap planning to the specifics of day-to-day tasks, monday.com connects the dots in a way that’s totally intuitive. Users get a variety of tools to help their teams stay on track — but these are the four core reasons we say this software is worth a download.
How many times have you interviewed at a company that claims to be transparent, only to be left working completely in the dark. monday.com works transparency into your team’s processes by using a single task board for everyone involved in a project. You can assign to-dos and track everyone’s progress to break down silos and create a collaborative overview of an entire project. You’ll quickly see how this shift empowers employees by connecting them to managers and highlighting individual contributions. It also allows managers to easily shift workloads and creates a visual representation of how your team’s resources are being. Maybe efficiency is starting you in the face — you just needed the tool to see it.
Another pet peeve when it comes to enterprise software: over complication. monday.com bucks that trend by delivering the quality and ease-of-use typically reserved for consumer products. Each to-do list is displayed in chronological order on a beautiful color-coded board. Each row within the board is called a “pulse,” and each pulse contains a single task that’s assigned to a single team member — creating an easy-to-view list of who’s accountable for what. Mark each task’s developments with a colorful label for a quick view of your team’s progress, and update or modify any pulse along your timeline with handy click-and-drag functionality.
Of course, simplicity is great, but every team is different. Aside from the custom colors available on your task boards and pulses, monday.com recently added three new features that make your workplace more productive than ever.
Their new Column Center adds 15 functionalities that facilitate any sort of new data you need to input, including time tracking, creation logs, location views, and anything else your project calls for.
The Board Views option gives you a look at each board and its elements within your company, letting you understand and extract data across the entire platform for a unified front.
Is communication a constant issue within your team? With monday.com, you can quickly tag team members and link to relevant documents, photos or other files — guaranteeing clear messaging within the context of your team’s project, and eliminating confusing back-and-forths from people working on different elements of a project. It’s especially useful for remote teammates.
You can also easily add clients to your boards to show them exactly how close you are to completing their flawless deliverables, and the platform integrates with other programs like Slack, Excel, Trello, Dropbox ,and more in case your clients aren’t on the monday.com wagon yet.
