New Productivity Tool Helps Managers Keep Employees on Task, Despite Downturn

Share Article

SharedStatus, a new web based solution, helps managers increase productivity in their departments, and meet project goals despite layoffs, budget cuts and declining morale.

We've had excellent feedback from users so far, and we're committed to relying on customer feedback to help us develop additional features.

SharedStatus (http://www.sharedstatus.com) is the latest software as a service (SaaS) developed to help managers, project leads and team members collaborate more effectively, and manage and meet deadlines. As the economic downturn continues to drive massive layoffs and budget cuts at companies in the U.S. and around the world, productivity is severely impacted, making it difficult for companies to meet goals and remain profitable. By facilitating detailed communication and information exchange, project updates, and status reports, SharedStatus makes it easier to manage tasks and team member performance, and meet overall objectives, even with a reduced workforce.

Increased efficiency and operational improvements will be key in navigating the downturn for many companies. Recently released, SharedStatus is a lightweight multi-user framework that helps managers create and assign tasks and projects, and manage productivity. Unlike complex project management solutions that require a hefty IT commitment and a sizable investment, SharedStatus is an easy-to-use, and easy to implement solution available at a fraction of the cost of similar options. The software facilitates real time task tracking, team collaboration and easy-to-generate status reports, and can be used by anyone with a web browser. It is ideal for both small businesses and large corporations, and available for $2 per month, per user with a $20 monthly minimum. As a special promotion, a two-month trial is currently available.

"In many companies, important tasks and deadlines slip through the cracks simply because of breakdowns in communication, and a lack of department protocols and procedures that mandate how employees report their progress to their managers and other team members," said David Alison, chief executive officer of AlisonWeb, and developer of SharedStatus. "These types of issues have become even more prevalent as managers are forced to work with limited staffs and resources, and unfortunately can be extremely costly and devastating to a company's bottom line. SharedStatus addresses these issues and delivers a simple yet streamlined solution that can be used collaboratively and adapted to any industry."

By implementing a collaborative task management application, managers can better establish performance expectations, provide consistent guidance and feedback, and streamline departmental communication. SharedStatus allows managers to supervise the progress and communication of their team from their Dashboard, and both managers and team members are instantly alerted by email or SMS text message when tasks are assigned, accepted, changed or updated. The software also eliminates the need for long email threads between team members and unproductive staff meetings, which often contribute to a department's inefficiency.

SharedStatus offers a variety of features and capabilities, such as the Quick Add feature and CSV File Import. Quick Add is a shortcut designed to help users add tasks and due dates quickly from the Dashboard. The CSV File Import tool helps users import fully built schedules from Microsoft Project into SharedStatus, preserving all associated resource assignments, task priorities and state settings.

"SharedStatus is absolutely essential for companies more sharply focused on task management as they fight to remain profitable, despite the current economic climate," said Alison. "We've had excellent feedback from users so far, and we're committed to relying on customer feedback to help us develop additional features."

SharedStatus requires no training, and is an ideal tool for both onsite and remote teams. For more information about capabilities, ordering or product tours, visit http://www.sharedstatus.com.
