Any project manager looking after a widely disparate and varied workforce will understand that keeping all information in one place is absolutely essential for the smooth completion of all the tasks that have been allocated. Having to report back to the customer on what has been done, what needs to be done and when things will be done is difficult enough. —
Also, the allocation of work can very soon become difficult and especially so with more and more people joining the project.
Allocating workloads effectively is a skilled job and if too many tasks are assigned to one person, that contractor can quickly become overwhelmed and this is when delays begin to creep in.
To help alleviate this problem, Project Bubble have created a “Workload Summary” report that quickly gives an overview of the tasks that have been allocated to contractors on a project-by-project basis.
By selecting projects and users, the project manager can quickly get a view of which contractors are being over burdened by tasks and those that maybe have time to spare. This is an essential part of making sure projects get done on time and more important, work is completely accurately. Over-working staff in critical projects is never a good idea and can lead to mistakes and problems later on down the line.
Stu Green of Project bubble said, “We make changes to the system based on customer feedback and this particular feature was requested a lot. It’s fine having granular control over all your projects’ details, but sometimes having that 30,000 foot view can make a real difference.”
The new report is available now to all subscribers to Project Bubble.
