Website design project management software organization is a task that I am well familiar with here at SkyPoint Studios. Every single website needs to be organized properly in order to be successful.
Here at our studio we focus on creating a workflow that allows projects to move through the pipeline quickly. One of the attributes that we’re well known for is our speed of development. We create websites in 2 to 3 weeks on average, and that’s way faster than most firms of our size.
We can do this because of our website project management software that we use. For this organization, we like to use specific tools that make the job more organized. Some of the best tools are gonna be broken down below.
The first one that our team uses to communicate on projects is Slack. You may be familiar with Slack, but if not, I highly encourage you to use it for your project management. What we do is set up a channel for each website design project, and then assign the different people who will be necessary to complete the project.
Whether it’s a project manager, web developer, graphic designer, videographer, writer or anybody else who may be necessary to complete the project. Then we go through and set deadlines for everyone to achieve, what they need to do their job and the order that it is to be done in. Because some people need to finish their task first before others can get to theirs.
This works really well to do in the channel and it allows us to communicate back-and-forth specifically on just that project and nothing else. When we need to know about where projects are at and who’s been working on what, we go into that specific Slack channel and we can see a history of where everything is at in that one specific project channel.
I really like how this chat feature works and it’s so seamless for us to use. It’s easy to keep track of everything in one place, without too much structure. The simple chat function allows creativity and communication in a nice smooth flowing way without being too rigid.
Another tool that we like to use that’s also similar but a little bit more rigid is Monday.com. Monday.com allows actual tracking of who is assigned a specific task. It is naturally more organized then Slack in that it’s not just chat but more of a project management software with assignments that have deadlines and due dates.
This works really well with specific teams that like the more rigid structure and need to be held with their feet to the fire to get things done. Usually our junior developers are in the Monday.com software where our senior developers and leadership team are in the Slack channels.
Our leadership and senior team like to use Slack to communicate on the overarching project management and where everything is at ‘as a whole’ for the company. Where with Monday.com is more used for our anybody who could be an outsourcer or junior developer to actually be held to creating their task when they need to have them done.
Finally, we use Facebook‘s project management software called Workplace for some other outside developers and any time that we need help with people who have specific specialties. This is not very often but we do use them on occasion. This is where we keep track of them because we don’t want to mix and mingle them in our other corporate channels.
How does your company organize project workflow?
I think that dialing in your project workflow is one of the most important things for a service-based company to figure out or for any company to figure out for that matter. I know that’s been part of the main success with us be able to deliver the results that we do for customers and be able to get hundreds of five star reviews from customers.
