Project Management System

Customer


Our client provides a service for effective project and team management. Detailed information cannot be disclosed under the provisions of the NDA.


Challenge


Communication between project team members often takes place via messengers. To clarify task statuses or set new ones, you have to switch in and out from messenger to project management system. Switching between several applications takes time, shifts the focus of attention and disrupts one’s productivity. 

Solution


The Y-Tech team integrated Slack and MS Teams with the project management system.

Task management


Project team members can create new tasks or tickets right inside Slack and MS Teams. To set a task one should enter a special command in any chat or channel, describe the task and, optionally, assign a responsible person, provide due date and remaining metadata. The created task will automatically appear in the project management system.

Project progress monitoring


The project stakeholders could subscribe for notifications, so whenever tasks are updated or completed the client will receive notification just into messenger.

Result 


Team members are kept in the loop by timely notifications on project working progress and quickly respond to changes. Integration with messengers allows one to avoid unnecessary check-ins and save one’s time by setting new tasks in Slack and MS Teams.
