All pieces must be in place before you reach the goal of a task, and with the help of task management you have an overview of which activities are done when. When assigning a specific task to a person or group, you want that task to be performed in the best possible way and in the fastest possible time, so that no resources are wasted, neither at the customer nor at the company. The task will probably have a lot of sub-elements which are really important to keep control of, in order to get the best possible solution to the customer in the end. This means that it is basic to provide a system that everyone in the company can use for task management. Using an Excel sheet, notes, e-mail correspondence and post-its for task management is in the long run confusing, confusing and not very communication-friendly. It provides a jumble of different information, lost or forgotten tasks and exceeded deadlines. Instead, there is a need for a systematic tool that registers tasks and manages them centrally, so that there is always an overview of tasks and activities.
Today, the possibility of task management is much closer and much more manageable, due to the technological development with digital visual solutions, and because IT is becoming more and more a natural part of a company. To keep up with developments, and at the same time make the work and tasks of its employees much more accessible and easier to oversee, an app for ipad, iphone, tablet, google, android and smartphone is preferred by many. This means that the mobile device can be taken around the world, and you always have the opportunity to update the status of a specific task or project, so you always have an overview of your time.
