Ashley Bienvenu and her colleagues at Shopbot discovered Producteev for their personal to-dos. In a short amount of time, they implemented the task manager to coordinate their entire marketing efforts.
Shopbot now uses Producteev to manage a complete spectrum of responsibilities — from the smallest of routine tasks to more major projects, as far as three months out.
For instance, Ashley manages daily tasks like updating the company blog and enters objectives for long term projects overtime. In doing so, she ensures that repetitive tasks are quickly completed and ideas for major projects are always “on the radar.”
They heavily rely on task priority, deadlines, and notes. Not all of members of the marketing department work the same hours. Thus, leaving notes on tasks serve as a primary means of collaboration.
Any team member adds tasks to the workspace at any time. Instead of an overseeing admin, all members participate in assigning tasks to one another. Ashley raves, “It’s working out fantastically!”
Ashley considers the avatars, or team photos, an easy way to get a glimpse of who is assigned to any particular task. In fact, like many users, she and her team were attracted to the interface and are motivated to be on Producteev on a daily basis.
On a weekly basis, they use Producteev to help run more efficient meetings. Using tasks as a reference for brainstorming and devising different campaigns and strategies, they make sure that no thoughts are left out of the mix.
Finally, Ashley compares Producteev to a traditional, paper to-do list. “With Producteev, there’s the added benefit of technology, but that same satisfaction of marking a task off as done.”
