In a previous post, we monetized the importance of productivity, and how the use of Keluro’s hashtag channeling system really reinforces team collaboration, and overall boosts productivity. But here, we want to apply how Keluro can be a useful tool for project management.
Even though there are several project management solutions available, many project managers still rely heavily on basic email. But basic email alone is by no way the best resource for project management, as it can create more confusion, and less information. As the project evolves, the email thread gets longer, as does the email list, creating lots of opportunity for information to get lost. Even ‘labels’ haven’t solved this problem—finding the current version of an attachment, is literally like finding a needle in a haystack. Here is where Keluro boosts project management. Emails with attachments are easily tracked using the unique hashtag channel management feature. A simple click brings you to the current, most up to date thread of the email, eliminating stress and lost time.
For comes to larger projects, assigning tasks to different members, one email at a time is a definite lead to miscommunication. You need to explain the project, await confirmation with possible questions via another email, respond with another email, and this process carries on and on…. Assigning tasks and looping in teammates when necessary at certain points of the project management schema is just as simple as assigning a hashtag. All information is tagged accordingly, tracked accordingly, and added to efficiently.
When email is used for project management, there is no central unit that stores all the important information. Nothing is found easily, and as any project manager knows, problems occur at the last minute. So where does one find the latest stats? Discussions and conversations? Files? It is clear that email is not optimized to store digital data for projects as there is no organizational system. With the Keluro hashtag system, project managers can extract the files, data, conversations needed by selecting the hashtag used at each development stage. This allows the project manager to compare digital assets with physical assets to properly move forward when there is a problem, and overall, keep the entire project properly managed from beginning to end.
