Every business needs a system for facilitating workflow, allocating tasks based on specific goals and monitoring progress on those goals.
Trello.com is a great platform for doing so. Whether you're an independent online marketer, a boutique firm or you run a much larger team, Trello scales well when it comes to managing productivity. All you really need is an Internet connection, a business or project and a need for improved productivity. Here are just three of the top benefits...
1) Everything is cloud-based
With Trello, you don't have to worry about keeping a local spreadsheet or dealing with unorganized project protocols offline. Just go to the Trello website and log in and you can access the boards of which you're a member. Everything saves automatically and the site reflects changes in real-time.
2) Manage projects and tasks with depth
Trello is more than a simple to-do list. The first level of the platform consists of "Boards." A board is a broader category that you assign to different function areas of the organization – for example accounting, business development and creative each have a board on which to manage their projects.
The next level includes "Lists." Lists outline specific projects within the function area. For example, the creative team's lists would include items such as "design logo," "create blog," and "launch website."
Within lists are "cards," which outline specific processes involved with each project. Using the "launch website" list as an example, cards would include "create content," "design website," "code website" and "QA and upload." You can get even deeper into the task management process on each card by creating bulleted checklists, adding comments, attaching files and assigning cards to new projects or individuals.
3) The design is intuitive
Trello has the depth and complexity of an enterprise-level productivity management solution, with the easy-to-use interface of an application like Wunderlist.
You can easily shuffle around cards and lists and assign members to specific tasks. Cards feature drag-and-drop functionality for file attachment, and the search function makes it easy to find what you're looking for on each board.
The board sidebar also has a news feed that updates in real time, enabling you to see who's making progress on what.
Trello.com is an excellent workflow and productivity platform. It's completely free and anyone can register. Try it and see what you think!
