Managing any project can be hard, and project management software only goes so far. One thing that can really hold a project back is settling on a management platform that’s not right for your project. Social media strategists, digital marketers and many creative types often struggle with the likes of BaseCamp and Trello when neither are built with their sector in mind. The guys at Brightpod had an idea – what about making a management platform for these industries instead?
Brightpod is a management system that has all the usual things you’d expect to see from something designed to help you better manage a variety of projects. As well as overviews for contributors and activity summaries across all of your projects, the platform also includes support for workflows. When running campaigns similar to those you have rub before you can use Brightpod’s workflows to duplicate many of the steps in a click, or create a workflow from an existing project.
A dedicated area called Flow helps users concentrate on tasks that are important to them, rather than being distracted with what can be a very intimidating list of to-dos. Of course some things can’t wait and you’ll find those in the area marked Attention, along with a due date (or an overdue date, if that’s how you do things). A powerful calendar displays all tasks, separating projects by colour to provide a thorough overview of upcoming deadlines.
Finally all tasks can be archived and recalled if required, and there’s a powerful email system that allows even those who aren’t part of your Brightpod project respond with nothing more than an email.
- Project management for creatives, marketers, social media types and strategists.
- Powerful feature set that isn’t designed for software development or bug testing.
- Clean and straightforward layout.
- Calendar and separate areas to separate tasks to focus on and those that need completing.
