Increase Project Success With Advertising Agency Software
Read time: 3 minutes
There are a lot of web-based project resource management software out there. A quick Google search returns over 226 million results. With so many choices out there, how do you choose the right one for your team?
A Tool Just Serves Its User. Training Matters.
Researchers at PwC found that the majority of project failures are directly related to poor project management. However, they found that this issue can be countered with proper staff training. In fact, 80% of high-performing projects are managed by trained and certified project managers.
Just like having Adobe Photoshop doesn’t make you a designer, having access to project resource management software does not necessarily lead to successful projects. Your team, especially your project managers and producers, should be trained to make the best use of the project managing system. This is why we’ve created our signature onboarding training program. It’s our way of ensuring you and your team will be successful.
Do Things One Way
Another key takeaway from the PwC survey is the link between implementing a company-wide project management methodology and project success. If you have multiple ways of doing something and need to input information in 2 or more places, you are losing valuable time and resources. It’s very easy for things to slip through the cracks if you don’t have a specific workflow in place. That’s where an all-in-one advertising agency software comes in handy. It allows you to track everything in one place, which is ideal.
Track The Pulse Of The Project With Reporting
Finally, let’s not forget the importance of financial reports in determining project health. According to PwC, cost reporting is probably the most frequently reported-on area in project management. Strangely enough, much of this is done primarily outside of the project management software, but it doesn’t have to be this way.
