Something is broken. Either your current tool isn’t working for you or you don’t have one and your processes are a mess. But here’s the thing, traditional PPM tools only focus on managing projects. You and your team do more than that. You need more than that.
|You need to know this…||But instead you get this.|
Who’s working on what?
“I don’t know.”
Resource management is so difficult that figuring out who’s working on what feels more like a “who’s on first?” bit.
Are they working on the right stuff?
Your team is drowning in a tsunami of emails and status meetings that are pouring precious time down the drain.
Do they have the resources they need?
Your processes and people are so disconnected it feels like you’re constantly trying to play connect the dots…without the dots.
Do they have the information they need?
Work requests come in completely random ways and no one knows what or how much information to include.
How is their work coming along?
There are so many silos on your team that getting data and updates is like pulling teeth…blindfolded. In the dark.
Will work be done on time?
Your current tool is about as useful as a hammer buried in a toolbox. Nobody’s using it because it’s just extra work.
The truth is, your team does enterprise work that is repeatable, frequent, and requires significant collaboration, but it’s often mismanaged. Most enterprise teams have a disconnected work experience that looks something like this:
Your team members manage their day-to-day work using more tools than Bob Villa. There’s a different tool for everything from task management to file sharing.
Those people work on your team with other people that are also using absurd amounts of tools.
Your team works with other teams in the department that are all using separate tools to manage their work.
They may come as emails, phone calls, notes on a desk, conversations, instant messages, or even through a PPM tool, etc.
Each team plans, executes, and collaborates on their work using 10 separate tools and their own set of processes that make zero sense to anyone else in the organization.
No one is on the same page, you have no clue who is working on what, work gets lost, you’re eating up funds, nothing is on time, and there’s a monkey on a unicycle in the corner throwing banana peels at your head.
All PPM tools do is add one more disconnected tool to your already chaotic processes and frustrated team. What you really need is a single system.
One system that manages the entire lifecycle of all types of work—both structured and unstructured—from initial request to delivery and measurement.
One system that reduces the information overload you feel by cutting out excess tools and connecting collaboration with work. This means more context, less meetings.
One system that streamlines your repeatable work processes using custom built templates and process improvement to improve your team’s productivity and efficiency.
One system that combines everyone’s individual work management needs and processes into a single tool, eliminating silos and frustration.
One system that people will actually use because it’s easy, relevant, and works the way people naturally work so it isn’t just another step in an already complicated process.
One system that provides all levels of an organization with visibility and insights into the truth about workloads, dependencies, and when things will really be done.
One system that gives managers and senior managers visibility into who is working on what, who has bandwidth, and how to justify the resources you have, and the ones you still need.
You already have plenty of “tools.” Enterprise Work Management is an actual solution that eliminates disparate tools and the frustration of silos and gives you visibility you can trust.
Senior managers can justify their resources and budgets and can better prioritize how resources are used.
Managers are better able to align their team’s work to corporate strategy and can improve their team’s productivity.
Team members are empowered to make better decisions, prioritize more effectively, and work more efficiently.

“We have one source of truth for all of the data related to our projects. We’re able to get reports really quickly, get data really quickly, tell a story, and, more often than not, bring clarity to the organization and build trust with our peers.”
Director of Communication Systems, Schneider Electric
“I can put someone who doesn’t have any knowledge of project management in front of AtTask, work with them for half an hour, and give them all of the information they need to begin managing a project in our methodology. I can give it to anyone within my IT department or even within my business, and they can easily adopt it. But it also offers the level of complexity that I need from a project management perspective.”
IT PMO Senior Manager, American Capital
“There are people who work across the country that we’ve never met. We might email them every day, but we’ve never met them. Already in AtTask I feel like I’m working more closely with those people. I post and that person is instantaneously aware of the comments. We have a crazy amount of work and AtTask keeps up with us. It works as fast as we do.”
Senior Graphic Designer, House of Blues Entertainment
“The value I get from AtTask is the data to market IT internally. We’re running 40 active projects at any given time. 95% of those are within budget. That’s a pretty good story. I couldn’t say that without making up the numbers until now.”
