Maintaining coherent, efficient and effective organization within a company isn’t easy. You’ve got to constantly keep colleagues and clients in the loop whilst assigning projects and tasks, scheduling meetings, sending emails etc. So communication is everything when it comes to achieving high levels of team efficiency.
Collaborative task management software, Grapple is optimizing the level and quality of communication among team members.
Founded by Umesh Lalwani in 2013, Grapple’s software system consists of easy-to-use tools such as time trackers, meeting schedulers, project statuses and activity feeds so you can clearly see what’s going on with your team and projects. Its features are accessible by all team members who can contribute and collaborate, making sure everyone is filled in. It also offers a 256-bit encryption meaning all projects are safe from hackers and any content can be made private for managers’ eyes only.
Like other task management tools such as TidyMarketer and WorkZone, Grapple uses automated software to speed up processes and communication. Add to that intuitive voice and email recognition features and you don’t even need to bother typing, you need only send a quick voice message to communicate whatever it is you need.
Grapple interprets messages and assigns tasks so you don’t have to do it manually. All you need to do is say a simple phrase outlining what you need, when you need it and from who, and Grapple will automatically send that person the details of the task along with the assigned due date.
This is great for people who are working on the road or for teams who work from a number of different time zones. Being able to quickly send a short voice message when and wherever they need to means colleagues can keep in close contact. There is no need to type out an email which is more likely to put off until later reducing the risk of missed information.
You can also create a project email inbox within the app, the tasks sent to the inbox will also be understood by Grapple and instantly passed on to whoever it concerns. All emails sent to the project will be interpreted and digested by Grapple and will then be added to the task list if necessary.
By using the natural language system and having tasks automatically assigned, you can waste less time writing emails and chasing up projects and spend more time focusing on the important stuff.
