Collaborating seamlessly from home

Managing a large project like a complex tender is not an easy process even under the best circumstances. What happens to you and your team's progress when the ability to collaborate on a project is hampered by something you cannot control?

Having a framework put in place that ensures everyone knows what to do as the project moves along is essential. Each of your team members needs to have access to the necessary information in order to actually do their jobs. This can be a content library, graphics or simply feedback from the team guiding the process along.

Without a proper system in place it is hard for you as a project manager to gauge where you are in the process, who is doing what and what strategic changes must be made to ensure success.

 

Co-authoring and automation software helps you win

For many managers a co-authoring and collaboration software solution would go a long way toward addressing many of the issues that arise once no one is left at the office and the deadlines remain unchanged.

The ability to assign roles and tasks to your team helps ensure you have a workflow that keeps momentum going on your project even when you’re not there to chase down every last section of your final document. This allows you to see the project be created in real time and provide comments and feedback as you go, without being blinded by a check in / check out system. 

If the project is created as a single document, and you don’t have to compile pieces of a document scattered across your team before enacting critical changes, then you and your team may just be able to pull off a win even while fighting an uphill battle.
