in the software industry
Roadblocks are inherent in every project. But what are the ones impacting a software one?
Missing the big picture
A software project with unclear requirements is simply destined to fail. If the documentation and use cases aren't extensive enough, the end product falls short.
No track of progress
If there is no common place where all progress is tracked, it is impossible to know where the project stands against the plan. Uninformed employees often lose motivation along the way.
Delivering on time holds no value when the product doesn't perform as expected. Unattended issues during and after development can cost you your project.
It all came tumbling down
Keeping your clients in the dark for a big surprise? Well, most projects overrun planned budget and hours because their final product is rejected by the stakeholders.
Why you need Zoho Projects?
Here are some of the ways in which Zoho Projects can make your IT project management process more efficient.
Track each of your code versions as a milestone in our free IT project management platform. The number of open tasks and unresolved bugs under each milestone keeps the team well aware of what needs to be done. Convert your customer tickets in Desk into issues in our IT project management tool.
Designing the interface, writing code, and quality testing are all interdependent tasks. A delay in one task triggers a chain reaction. Set up critical paths and baselines in your Gantt chart to monitor dependencies and avoid delays.
Save time by automating the work flow of similar tasks by designing Task Blueprint. Leave no expectations unmet by setting up SLAs for your clients and escalating when required. Is there a reward better than trust?
Nothing is more nerve-racking for a Manager than to sit down with every sub team to know where the project stands. Turn to the project dashboard and detailed reports instead. Eliminate meetings, and collaborate in real-time using our IT portfolio management software.
Customize Zoho Projects to suit your business and your team. Create your own fields, statuses, customize workflows, notifications, and also the look of your portal. Make your employees feel at home using our IT project management software.
The only thing worse than miscommunication is unfocused rambling. Have discussions over Feed and comments, save files in Documents, make announcements through Forums, and go to Pages for instructions and processes.
