“Project management is the practice of initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and closing the work of a team to achieve specific goals and meet specific success criteria at the specified time.
The primary challenge of project management is to achieve all of the project goals within the given constraints”
I usually work on Bitrix and Asana and build my own project management tool on Excel. It meant moving out of my comfort zone to research project management tools I have not worked with before. I realised one thing while researching these two tools, they are there to make the SME’s and big corporate operator’s work easy and efficient. Now teams can have easy access to software that is cheap and easily accessible with only the click of a button.
Favro is “Collaboration and planning in the cloud” – thus a cloud based application. This is a planning app which is designed to help a team carrying out their complex business plans with ease and efficiency. This software can especially be used by marketers, production planners and developers because it offers some intuitive and easy to use features for activity planning. Developers also love it because it is fast and modern, staying up to date with current and relative tools.
Favro provides the following key features:
Which tools often used by Virtual Assistants integrate with Favro?
Unfortunately it is not a free plan. Two to more than 100+ users can work simultaneously. The more users the cheaper the plan, definitely a project management tool for bigger teams.
TeamGantt is “An online Gantt Chart Software“. This online project scheduling software lets users manage their projects easily and visibly. It has built-in resource management, so they can see what each person is working on any given day.
TeamGantt provides the following key features:
- Drag & Drop Simplicity
- Change start and end dates
- Reorder tasks
Which tools often used by Virtual Assistants integrate with TeamGantt?
A free plan is only available for 3 users and 1 project. The varying payment plans starts with 3-50+ users and unlimited projects.
Looking at the above, both tools are great and make life easier with freeing up time when used effectively. Both of these project Management tools work for both small to bigger businesses. TeamGantt provides more integration and a free plan for small businesses. It can also be used more by my virtual industry.
I am however a “work on your mobile” girl and is leaning towards Favro. TeamGantt does not support mobile platforms. Favro can also incorporate spreadsheets………….. It seems I found my next tool to test!
