London, UK (PRWEB) June 14, 2013
London technology company Woovio today officially launched the updated version of the RACI-based KnowMyTeam iPad app, designed to enable managers to track responsibilities and optimise team productivity, as well as identify early-warning resourcing red flags.
The app is the first of its kind to successfully integrate the industry-standard Responsible, Accountable, Consulted and Informed “RACI system”, replacing the need for costly residential courses and desktop-bound software.
KnowMyTeam is now available to all on the App Store: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id571449502.
Andrew Reid, KnowMyTeam creator, said:
“After years of boosting team performance using RACI in my own management career I knew the benefits firsthand. However, I increasingly needed to access real-time team information whilst on the move. I also knew that for many companies, the conventional costs associated with RACI training are prohibitively expensive, not counting the time commitment. So I decided to set about finding my own solution.
“KnowMyTeam lets the iPad take care of the administrative headaches, enabling managers to concentrate on higher-value interaction with staff and make the team, and their business, more productive.”
KnowMyTeam is a unique management performance-enhancing iPad app that uses RACI to enable managers to maintain control of their team, to interact with them better and to increase transparency. It is mobile, simple, intuitive and powerful, facilitating good governance and maximum performance.
Using the time-honoured Responsible, Accountable, Consulted and Informed matrix system, KnowMyTeam:
•Gives easy oversight - with KnowMyTeam, a manager can understand what their entire team is doing in under an hour.
•Increases morale and engagement – team members can work with managers to define responsibilities and understand the bigger picture.
•Reduces risk – stop responsibilities being overlooked and highlights key person dependencies.
•Saves time – quickly provides an overview of the roles of the entire team and the responsibilities of individual team members.
•Ensures all staff are contributing to the success of the team.
•Reduces conflict – helping managers spot potential areas of conflict ahead of time and avoid it.
“With KnowMyTeam, for a fraction of the price of lengthy training sessions and the hidden inefficiency costs, managers will now be able to get up to speed on their team’s duties in about an hour, and keep on top of what their teams are doing from then on.”
