Project Management Tools - Managing Projects

Effective Project Management

Your project management tool should be easy to use and straight forward. It should allow you to track your projects, milestones, tasks, time frames, and client entities.

Your clients' project scope and the phases it requires for completion can all be managed for an on-time deployment.

Projects

Take the guesswork out of projects. Set them up so they are organized and easy to follow for your implementations team. Make descriptions clear and objective.

Milestones

Some larger projects require milestones to divide up efforts and time frames. Organize groups of tasks so your client can get a sense of achievement as you make implementations on time.

Tasks

The task manager allows you to be very specific when assigning items to do for your team. Tasks may be assigned to roles and include attributes like due dates, expected time, actual time, priority, etc. The Market Toolkit online project management tool is very effective in helping you deploy projects and tasks on time.

Entities

Manage companies and other clients who may own a project. Entities are managed in the CRM tool which connects to many parts of the Market Toolkit.

Time Frames

Times frames are based on due dates set in each task. You can get a feeling for how long a project will take when tasks are assigned and the dates are added up.

Proactive Project Management

The key to effective management is to stay on top of the details of the project. A project that grows out of date becomes cumbersome. Regular updates can keep a project on schedule and the project status clear for all of the users.
