06 Aug OUR CRAFT: NON-PROFIT FOUR PART SERIES TO ACCELERATE OPERATIONS – Asana
Last week we went over Salesforce and the efficiency it can bring to handling donor relations, community events and more. Today we’re unveiling a platform that will have you operating at a higher level with project management and deadlines.
How many times have you met with your team to brainstorm, only to end the meeting with with a list of tasks and projects that needed timelines and designated names on tasks? We have been in your shoes and it can be frustrating to spend time developing great ideas only to have them go to the wayside. It’s no one’s fault, other priorities arise and before you know it, a year has gone by and the project(s) remain in your email or perhaps an excel spreadsheet. The good news…there’s an EASY fix to this dilemma! Let us introduce you to….Asana.
Asana is an online project management tool from the comfort of your computer and/or mobile device. It organizes projects allowing you to create various tasks and assigning them to colleagues with a deadline. It creates efficiencies for the entire team and helps to streamline projects/events. Another really cool feature is having the ability to send a task to Asana from email! Let’s face it emails are constantly coming in and our inbox can become full of tasks and follow up, save yourself a lot of time and use Asana to help you prioritize work tasks.
Asana is also a great tool for saving passwords. Don’t worry, you can create access rules in the settings, so if you don’t want the whole team to see them, just create the rule and you’re set! Now you have one platform to manage projects AND save your passwords. You can throw out the torn sheets of paper or the excel spreadsheets and put everything in this handy platform.
The best part about all of is…it’s AFFORDABLE! Remember, time is money so why not invest into creating a more streamlined process? Setting up the right tools will accelerate your organizations growth. Not sure if this is for you or maybe you’re interested in an assessment, call us today and let us help you!
