Viren is a Project Manager at an Analytics company managing 17 projects at a time with a team of 12. He needs to report to his manager and 8 of his clients on projects progress. He has set timelines for the projects and assigned the tasks to his team members. How does he stay on top of updates on what is happening with his 17 projects. Using ProjectToolBelt.
At one glance he can see which tasks are overdue and by how many hours or days. He makes his team members enter their timesheets everyday. So he knows who completed what and in how many hours. By referring to this ProjectToolBelt workspace he can see how many hours per day are being logged on his projects. He knows who is absent as ProjectToolBelt is fully linked with the leave management system.
His team members know what is expected of them and so they are also happy to co-operate. They can enter their timesheets easily against the task and activity performed. It takes just a few minutes to update timesheets using MyWebTimesheets – the timesheets linked to project management.
Viren’s boss does not need to follow up with Viren daily. He can monitor the health status of the projects easily online. He can see billable hours worked, tasks awaiting feedback and he can send updates to his boss easily.
All customer related information is available in one place and so is project info. Exports to excel and printable pdfs make it easy to refer information easily. He can run summary reports by Projects or by Customers. And see exactly how many hours were spent Customerwise or Projectwise by his team for any time period.
The graphs show billable hours worked – and also show where the non billable hours are being spent. ProjectToolBelt has made life easier for Viren- he is able to spend more time with his family because he knows where to look for information quickly. All the project documents are uploaded and accessible at one place for him. Viren has also been sleeping more soundly after he started managing projects using ProjectToolBelt.
