No matter what industry you work in, project management can be a tough thing to tackle. You have to keep track of multiple teams, multiple development stages, and maintain clear communication with your employees and your shareholders. Adding a remote team to the mix makes the communication that much more difficult, but regardless of the type of project you’re working on, there are several challenges that are almost universal and FreshVu2Go can help.
Confusion on Requirements
Each project is different and the requirements at each stage will vary. Keeping your team up-to-date on the requirements can be difficult, especially when you’re working with a distributed workforce. Even if you email out updated requirements every step of the way, it is inevitable that some of them will fall through the cracks.
Mistakes in Timekeeping
Your team has to keep track of their hours so you can bill the client appropriately. However, it’s easy for things to get missed. A good project management software program will help you and your team keep track of the tasks they complete, how long it takes them to complete it, and what, precisely, was done at each stage. An accurate count of how your team spends its time can go a long way towards satisfying demanding clients who wish to know exactly what was accomplished each day.
At the beginning of a project, you establish a clear allocation of your resources in order to get each task done properly and on time. While each project has to be completed with a finite budget, overspending happens more frequently than most project managers care to admit, especially if they’re not monitoring their resources adequately. If you overspend, you’ll have to come up with the extra resources on your own.
Unless your team is incredibly accurate when accounting for hours worked, resources used, and time spent on each stage, you may find invoicing to be a challenge. A good project management software will help you keep track of work completed, the amount of budget utilized, and the time your team spent on each stage. With accurate accounting, your invoicing process will be significantly easier.
