For small agencies and design teams, tools for messaging, project and task management, workflow and collaboration are more than a handy resource. A design project management platform is essential to keeping your team on top of work, communicating across and ensuring that you can deliver on your commitments to clients.
Simplifying your agency resources with a design project management platform
The challenge right now is that we need these tools, we’ve become so dependent on the increased productivity they offer, but there are now so many that juggling them all, managing communication happening in multiple places, is becoming just as time-consuming as it once was to do everything via email. Well, maybe not that dramatic, but in a world of hyper-efficiency, anything causing even the most minor of delays seems like stepping back into communication with carrier pigeons.
Technology is amazing. It has transformed our world, increased our capabilities and allows us to achieve things never before possible. But with our increased dependency comes an ever-mounting pile of “must have” tools, the use of which becomes increasingly less productive, the more we add to the mix.
If you use popular messaging tools for your team, no doubt you’re paying somewhere around $6.50-$12.50 per user, each month.In fact, end-user spending on public cloud services is estimated to reach $396 billion in 2021.
Then, of course, you need a project and task management tool, which is likely adding another $12.50 per user, each month. Then, many agencies will also require design project management platforms, adding another $99+ each month to your costs. That’s just the beginning for most. All of that, just for tools to help your team, basically, communicate and manage projects.
