ManagePlaces: Location-Based Project Management
Georgio Michalakidis, Aaron Mason, Alfie Simmons
Today, it is common practice for companies both big and small to have team members working away from their central office. Managing workflows within these geographically disparate teams is often a chore involving email chains, constant instant-messaging, and the sharing of documents. Cloud computing has made this vastly more efficient, but there is a long way to go in the realm of remote team management. To simplify this process, ManagePlaces stores all of an organisation’s data in one system and provides a customisable dashboard that lets managers see the information they actually need. It deals with all possible kinds of remote working scenarios, including project, document, asset, team, task, and location management. Using ManagePlaces leads to better workflows, less downtime, and increased task transparency. The live mapping function dynamically maps all tasks and assets, showing their exact location and status. The mapping functionality allows users, for example, to view hotspots where overdue projects are located. Additionally, users can track all their assets, such as vehicles and devices, in one system. ManagePlaces has a utility for almost any business that runs remotely.
