The innovative marriage of technology and project management has led to an evolution from the paper or Excel-based project management paradigm to one now based upon bespoke management tools. This shift has created a challenge for many organizations who struggle to provide their management teams with the operational tools they require to keep up with this change. At the same time, staff find themselves having to spend a large portion of their day performing low value tasks which decreases productivity and hinders growth. According to McKinsey, implementing the right tools to support this change can increase your organization’s productivity by up to 40%. While there are many low value tasks that hinder productivity within an organization, these are the 3 that occur almost on a daily basis:

1. Manual Version Control:

Tracking every change made by each team member and having each member working off the latest version- especially for documents that undergo a lot of revision and redrafting can take up a lot of time if done manually.

2. Tracking Emails:

Figuring out where a document was sent, who sent the document, what are the key actions that need to be made on that document.

3. Follow-up Calls:

The time spent following-up to get feedback on a task or project can mean significant time delays and extra work hours. This extended feed-back loop often significantly delays project timelines and wastes company resources.

The TRIYO Solution:
