Yodiz – Unique Tools for Unique Teams

Not everyone on your team is necessarily using the same tools to complete work tasks each day. Yodiz is a project management application that understands this concept. Rather than expecting assistants, project managers, designers, and developers to all use the same tools, Yodiz gets a bit more creative. The project management application offers unique tools and features for each member of your busy work team.

One way that you can increase speed and efficiency at the workplace is by making sure your employees have access to top-of-the-line tools built specifically with their job processes in mind. Sign up for a Yodiz account, and encourage each of your employees to log into the system, as well. Yodiz offers role-based screens that differ in appearance based on the role that each employee plays within your company. For example, developers can get access to useful to-do lists with priority levels and issue tracking features, while managers are steered toward a dashboard where they can track the progress of multiple projects at a glance. This manager dashboard also shows exactly what each team member is working on, and links all the graphs it creates based on this information to the underlying data. Yodiz also handles agile management with a host of features, including scrum board, product backlog page, and dependency tracking.

The issue tracking tools that Yodiz offers are completely collaborative, which means your designers, developers, and other employees can all work together through various discussion threads and comments to find solutions to the problems delaying your company’s work. When issues are resolved, Yodiz sends real-time notifications to every person on the team as a way to make sure everyone stays up-to-date.

Practical Uses:

  • Get your whole office to use a project management application
  • Find out how much work each employee has contributed to a project
  • See which employees have missed the most project deadlines
  • Encourage developers to work together to find solutions to major problems
