Improvement of production or service process.

Once the task performance issue was detected the manager can take measures to solve it. By simplifying the responsibilities of each employee and clarifying his role within the process, the company can more easily determine where improvements can be made in order to increase efficiency and to improve the quality of the product or service.

Standardizing tasks and works.

The situation when at the same level employees perform the same tasks and have the same functions is easy to control by manager. It allows to standardize working methods and approaches, and assign tasks efficiently to employees.

Improved customer service.

The ability to quickly search for and identify a work request within the process allows a manager to quickly respond to customer enquiries. It allows the customer to feel completely involved in the entire process and capable of getting answers to important questions.

Reduced costs.

Workflow management lets create a continuous process, i.e. unbroken chain. When a link in the chain is broken, it is simple to go back and determine where this occurred and immediately take measures. This gives the company capability to reduce idle time costs.

VIP Task Manager is software that gives the company manager capabilities to set and manage tasks efficiently. In the application the manager can customize workflow and edit tasks statuses. Besides the default workflow that has such task statuses "Draft", "Created", "In Progress", "Completed", "Canceled", he can create a new workflow and add new task statuses that precisely corresponds to your working process. For example, in some stage of the planning process the task is required to be checked and approved by Director or Manager. Then the manager could create such task statuses: "Verification" or "Approved".

For effective task management the manager needs to get complete information on how each employee performs his tasks. The manager needs to track and get reports on tasks. In VIP Task Manager he can set deadlines and track procrastinations, assign estimated time for tasks and compare it with actual time needed to perform a task, set reminders and task recurrence. The employee can generate reports on tasks and print it out or send these tasks to the manager by email. VIP Task Manager lets the manager receive notifications on task changes by email or within the application.
