A project manager called Jenny introduced Podio at her advertising agency – let’s call it Acme Inc.. Until recently, they required tons of meetings, calls and emails to stay on top of their projects. Despite all the effort, things still fell between the cracks. Here is how Jenny found a better way to structure their work and communications.
This app defines the framework of each project and helps Jenny quickly see the status and related deliverables. It also gives her an overview of other projects within her team.
For each project, Jenny breaks down the work into deliverables. This helps her creative team stay on top of their individual assignments, while enabling Jenny to keep her eye on the big picture.
Jenny's meetings are automatically added to her calendar and include a location, time and agenda. They can be linked to deliverables or projects, so the relevant material is always one click away.
Here is a look at how Jenny and her team use Podio on a daily basis to get things done:
You can add files to almost anything in Podio, conveniently integrating with services like Google Drive and Dropbox. It makes it easy for Jenny to e.g. add the project brief as a PDF to the project.
On the mobile app, James will be notified about his new task immediately. The deliverable in question is connected to it so that Jenny will be notified automatically and can see on the deliverable when he completes the task.
A meeting is so much more than just a location and a date. The team use it prepare and discuss the agenda beforehand and to record next steps when it’s over, all in one well-documented place.
