When we are dedicated to organizing a project we must fulfill many responsibilities: knowing who is doing what, what is being delayed and what is being carried out, organizing communication between the team, etc. Actually, managing a project depends not only on your way of working, but on the technology at your fingertips.
Whether you dedicate yourself fully to carrying out projects or that you occasionally have to do it in your work, these 5 tools will help you to perform a more efficient and better organized work.
This tool is one of the easiest to use since the layout in the form of information cards allows all data to be displayed clearly and easily. Sharing and collaborating is simple, but Trello’s best tool is its flexibility. Its simplicity makes it work very well as a task organizer, pending lists, newsletter or almost anything you need and the best part is that its simplest features are free. Trello works from web or mobile devices iOS, Android and Windows 8.
An application similar to Trello is Flow, which is still very easy to use but incorporates other work tools. The great success of Flow is its control panel that allows users to see everything from the same place. It also has the ability to separate work into different levels with names such as: workspaces, groups, lists, tasks and subtasks. Flow is excellent when it comes to projects that require high levels of collaboration and communication because it allows you to leave comments and set alerts as you would in social networks. Flow has a cost of $10 per user, per month and is available for iOS, Android, Mac and web.
Asana does not have the design quality of the two previous applications, but it stands out for its task management system. Thanks to its own inbox, your email can be free of messages that relate to the project to be carried out. Asana bases its interface on setting and reaching goals, so it can be a good option for those who like to divide their work into phases. All of its tools are free and available for use on the web, iOS and Android.
Basecamp is probably the oldest application and although it doesn’t have such an innovative design, it has a lot to offer. You can make use of pending lists, setting goals and discussion forums, but where it really stands out is in the management of shared files and the visualization of a work calendar. Its cost is $99 per year and can be used on iOS, Android and web.
Podium is probably the most complete tool mentioned here since, apart from allowing you to make use of all the functions that we have already mentioned, it allows you to generate your own applications within the system. This means that you can adjust it to your liking and needs. If you do not want to design your own application, you can make use of hundreds of applications created by other users ranging from budget management to reviewing videos, storyboards or publications for social networks. The best part? Podium is totally free, there are applications within the system that have a cost but usually all are free too. Podium is available for web, iOS, Android and Windows.
