Great productivity tools can truly transform your workplace. Productivity tools empower you to do your work more quickly, efficiently, and reliably. Over the years of successfully leading software implementations, we've seen firsthand how companies flourish when they put the right productivity tools in place. We share our experience with our customers to help them to start improving their companies right away.
Most companies, no matter what they make, follow the same basic processes: make a quotation, process an order, prepare for production, produce, and deliver. This is deceptively simple, though, because in reality, each step probably entails dozens of subtasks – all of which need to be planned and organized before they can be performed.
We started using Asana in 2012 to coordinate teamwork for the massive workload at our electronics manufacturing company. In our business, each quotation and order includes dozens of administrative and engineering tasks for each of the some 2000 different products we produce each year. As the company grew, the multiple steps and high complexity was just becoming impossible to coordinate without a better software system.
This was when we discovered Asana, which allowed us to create projects, assign individuals to tasks, set due dates, and monitor progress. With Asana's clean overview, we could see at a glance what still needed to be done, leave important notes for coworkers on tasks still to be completed, and watch the project come together in real time. We can track complicated analytics with the click of a button. Asana has not only transformed the way we work, but the way we work together.
Our Asana implementation was so successful at our brick and mortar company that it allowed us to add a remote team to help at every step of the pre-production process, including quotations, order processing, purchasing, and project engineering.
With Asana, the many tasks of our business are coordinated seamlessly across time zones and geographical locations to get things done on spec, and on time.
If we're really honest about it, we don't remember how we managed to get our work done before Asana – and that's why we're certain it will be that transformative for you, too.
