Manage Remote Project Teams? Shine Light into your Project with Spotlight!
For those who manage remote project teams in the software environment, I’m sure you all know the challenges that can rear their ugly head during the process. Communication issues, time zone differences, task management, and team member availability are a few of the things that have to be properly managed to deliver a successful project. Ask a project manager what task their individual team members are working on at that exact moment or what the exact status of the project’s delivery is and you will often get a blank stare. Some project managers are experienced enough to have mastered this art but many would benefit from having a tool to guide them down the project delivery road. Serpico DEV strongly endorses our client Spotlight Software, who can offer you this guidance with Spotlight – People & Project Manager.
Spotlight PPM offers remote project and team management capability at your fingertips with easy to use web and mobile interfaces. What once took a series of emails, conference calls, and Skype sessions to find out the status of your project can now be accomplished by simply logging into the Spotlight online dashboard and task manager. So what are the meat and potatoes?
- Real-time updates – Track the project team through real-time updates of their current status, whether they are working on a back-end database or out to lunch.
- Manage your team from anywhere in the world – Mobile and web interfaces give you the ability to be in control from anywhere at any time. Monitor your project from your desktop computer, laptop, iPad, iPhone, or Android device, whether you are in the comfort of your own home or stuck at the airport.
- Track the progress of your project – Instantly see your project delivery date and if it’s on time to be delivered.
- Detailed task management – See a breakdown of the individual tasks required to complete the project from start to finish. Track the specific tasks individual team members are working on and their progress towards completion.
Imagine the peace of mind Spotlight could provide for those unexpected times your CEO stops you in the hall or you get an impromptu call from a project stakeholder wanting a status update. But don’t take my word for it, listen to what one developer who is an extensive user had to say: “Keeping track of your time is effortless. When you update your status in the app, it’s like leaving small notes on the Project Manager’s Desk.”
So take advantage of the tool that makes everyone’s job easier from the developer to the team manager. Your project owner will be glad you did.
