I don’t know if we can get any more obvious than this, but regardless; seeing as we are the makers of one of the best Project Management tools, we put a great deal of emphasis on organisation and its importance. Seems like a simple, logical topic, right? Wrong. Organisation is, if I may be blunt, an abstract term. Every person is different and everyone’s definition of organisation is different. So making an organisational tool is a harder task than you might believe it to be. I will try to list and explain some of the benefits of organisation, and along with it, the benefits of using activeCollab for that same purpose.
I want to give you a personal example of what I mean when I say that organisation is different for every person. Walking into my mother’s office, you would not be able to find a single sheet of paper out of place. Everything is listed chronologically, stored tightly, and it is as clean as a doctor’s office. She knows exactly where her documents are and she would start working right away, without the need to search for anything. My father, on the other hand, well, his office is kind of all over the place. Papers everywhere, tools hiding under the desk! But don’t you dare and try to move something! He also knows exactly where everything is and doesn’t need a lot of time to find exactly what he needs. In both cases, they are organised, but in their own perspective ways. We, at activeCollab, realise that people are different, and our product gives our clients the freedom to choose the way they wish to organise their material.
Now that we have seen an example of the different ways that people keep themselves organised, there are some things that are the same for every type of organisational strategy. The benefits of keeping yourself organised vary and span out, but the end results are always the same. People that keep organised tend to be more successful. An obvious statement, but highly needed to be noted, as people tend not to focus on that final achievement in their organisational strategy. Not realising the potential of their success, people tend to look past their organisational skills, and therefore, lack the success in the end. By keeping yourself organised, success will just be one tick off the checklist.
Yet another benefit of keeping yourself organised is that you will have more free time to yourself, after the work-day is over. Just as I have stated above, no matter how you keep yourself organised, being able to find exactly what you need will make your life much easier. With that being said, you immediately jump to yet another important benefit; you eliminate the stress that you may put on yourself by not knowing where you left off the previous day. This will increase your enjoyment at the end of the day and you will automatically feel better about yourself and about the completion of your daily tasks. By being able to do things calmly instead of rushing and searching through papers is essential for a successful day at work, simply because it will automatically save you time, money and precious nerves! You will then be more efficient and more productive. As you can tell, these benefits are psychological, but the right mindset plays a decisive role in a successful business.
But organisation is not just about being able to find your papers, files and documents. Your organisation also reflects on the way that you run your business. By showing your clients that you are responsible and that you have everything in order, cooperation and collaboration with workers and clients will become more professional and more efficient. And the further you expand your business, the less stress you will have while running it, simply because you will be used to the order that you have been conducting throughout the years. Imagine being all over the place and eventually expanding your business! It would hit you like a brick wall. If that is not a good enough reason to keep yourself organised, then nothing is.
This is where activeCollab comes into play. You can choose how you wish to keep yourself organised. Choose your projects, work with whomever you want, and do exactly what is needed for your business. Your files, tasks, projects, milestones, everything, will be kept right where you left it. Conducting a quick search will help you find something right away if you think that you have misplaced it. This will save you the effort and the stress, which as we have discussed is highly important to having a successful business.
Yet another amazing task that you can do with your activeCollab, but not with your papers and documents, is that you can take your activeCollab with you wherever there is an internet connection. Imagine carrying a huge suitcase full of papers around with you. It is ridiculous and absurd. Take your tablet or even your smartphone with you and have full access to all of your files and documents, project and tasks in a paper thin mechanical folder! Working in activeCollab will be more fun for you and it will eliminate the stress of not having enough space for where to place your important documents.
activeCollab does a great job when it comes to impressing your clients and associates. There is no better way to invite them into your activeCollab setup than by having a friendly, personalised invitation. The invitational message, highly organised projects, distributed tasks and professional looking invoices will leave your colleagues stunned. At the same time, collaboration and communication will be increased between coworkers and associates as new ways to keep your projects organised will be highly essential to both the administrator and everyone else working in your virtual office. And finally, the end results will prove to everyone that this project management tool is exactly what you have been waiting for! Now this is the revolutionised way that you should keep organised!
