More than just a project management tool
Monday.com is more than just a project management tool, but what does that mean? monday.com is in all likelihood the most versatile tool you’ll find for managers around the world.
Yes, you can use monday.com for project management purposes, however, you can additionally use it as a CRM, a marketing campaign manager, to track bugs, to manage client projects, and to facilitate and manage video production. There are quite a few unique approaches to use it for, and we’ve found groups use it for simply about everything: from teachers planning their lessons to engineers building airplanes.
There are a few distinct differences that make this tool something that we can’t work without and is capable of replacing many of the other tools currently being used.
Focus on processes, no longer tasks
A static checkbox marking a project as “done” or “not done” doesn’t provide sufficient information for team members to understand where things stand. Things are always more complicated than that. What about, “delayed for a day”? What about, “I’m waiting for final review before I can move forward”?
These real-life statuses are not incorporated into any administration tool; it’s continually communicated in e-mail threads, meetings, and discussions. We recognize that things are never that simple, so monday.com focuses on processes. We make it convenient to convey statistics about assignments or projects in a structured way that can be replicated for future processes. That improves all factors of administration and communication.
You need something visual
Text is great for when you’re sitting down with a book. It takes time to understand text-based systems, and when you’re busy, you’ll miss things. monday.com is visual. The colored statuses simply pop out at you and are easy to understand.
You want to work with a grid
People think in grids, now not in hierarchy. It’s an intuitive, flat way to organize information—we all do it. That’s why monday.com is a grid, and there’s very little to no hierarchy in the system.
Understanding the bigger picture
Set a goal, map out a process, and understand where the whole thing stands. It’s the best way to plan. On monday.com, one simple board holds all the information. No need to ask people or sync up with meetings; everyone already knows. You want to understand and work towards the bigger picture. Let’s face it: nearly every management tool on the market just lists work, focusing on initiatives and tasks. monday.com focuses on processes, which is what administration and operations are certainly all about.
