We’ll say it again for those just arriving to our Tool Box series: Small business owners have limited time and resources, which is why they shouldn’t waste either on cookie-cutter software solutions that don’t react, can’t evolve, and aren’t flexible enough to meet their needs.
Now that we've got that out of the way, here's the latest peek into the Accountfully toolbox. This week we share our secret weapon for assigning tasks and staying on track across teams and locations with Asana. This handy workflow management tool helps us ensure that we are synched up across clients and internal teams, and offers a user friendly design that helps visualize workflows as needed.
Not only do we use it here in the Accountfully office to keep track of our bottomless list of tasks, we use it to collaborate with our teammates, and to share important project status updates. Like all of our other favorites, it is cloud based and can be used from your desktop or mobile device anywhere there is an internet connection.
Mini Case Study: Asana Integration for Streamlining Communication in a Growing Company
Recently we started working with a client who was trying to keep up with their day-to-day operations through a complex web of emails and spreadsheets. This system worked for them for the first year but as they grew, added new employees, and opened a new office, their needs changed dramatically.
We helped them integrate Asana to sync up tasks and streamline employee communication. Soon, both offices were seamlessly working together on projects that previously would have required in person meetings. Tasks were getting crossed off the to-do list, and dusty spreadsheets quickly became a thing of the past.
When You Should Consider Using Asana
We recommend Asana to clients who have multiple offices, off site employees, or quite simply a mounting list of tasks. It’s one of our favorite collaboration and productivity apps and we can’t imagine life without it.
