Typical Task Management Solutions Make You Choose Between Powerful Features or Ease of Use
JobTraQ is the ONLY solution on the market that provides enterprise grade task management functionality that business analysts and non-coders can use themselves.
JobTraQ is the leading workflow automation platform for companies in heavily regulated industries, but a crucial component is our enterprise-grade task management software. JobTraQ is the only true No Code workflow platform which can be used by the Business with zero IT support, but IT still retains control over security and integration, leaving business analysts, team leaders, and Business stakeholders free to focus on discovery, design, and now, deployment.
Let’s look at some familiar names for you and outline where some task managers are strong and where they are weak:
Jira is well known to IT teams because it has a lengthy history of being used for bug tracking but morphed into a project management tool, though it’s roots are firmly in bug and issue tracking.
However, Jira’s workflow capabilities are limited to simple rules. Unless you install many add-ons or write custom code, it forces your people to conform how it works, whereas JobTraQ is customizable down to the most granular level you can imagine.
Offered as a Software as a Service (SaaS), SmartSheet positions itself as a collaboration and business toolkit, including project tracking, document sharing, and calendar management. SmartSHeet competes with Microsoft Excel, Project and Sharepoint, though it has had some user adoption issues.
JobTraQ differs from SmartSheet in that it can be used for far more than task listing, and it is eminently scalable with built-in globalization functionality. JobTraQ supports true collaboration and idea sharing in a structured format using custom forms and messaging functionality, while ensuring timelines are adhered to and managers can see the status of work in near real-time.
Wrike has some powerful task management functionality, however it is not easy to use for non-technical people, and in practice IT support is required which defeats the object of a low cost, fast workflow and business application platform. Wrike is also heavily geared towards specified business functions, such as Marketing rather than a business-wide work management platform.
JobTraQ is much powerful and versatile task management platform, which is easy for non-technical people to use to create simple-thru-complex workflows that scale. JobTraQ is a general-purpose system, which means you can bring your whole organization under the same umbrella no matter where your people, resources, and processes operate in the world.
Designed with remote workforces in mind, Basecamp is the product of 37Signals, a Chicago-based web design firm that decided to focus upon application development. Basecamp is best described as web-based project management solution, with to-do lists, milestones, a basic messenger feature, time tracking, and file sharing. It is used extensively by small to medium-sized marketing teams where there is a heavy element of freelancer involvement (creatives who typically work remotely).
Unlike Basecamp, JobTraQ delivers enhanced visibility into due dates and work status, resource utilization and work capacity at organizational down to individual detail, and it is a simpler tool to use.
JobTraQ is a true enterprise task management product which is mature, tried and tested, and successfully deployed in a multitude of large enterprises and government departments.
Trello is widely used for personal use and some work verticals, such as real estate, marketing & web design, and software project management. Its “kanban board” user interface is intuitive, but allows almost no customization. As such it is not a true enterprise task management software solution and is aimed at small teams rather than companies looking to quickly develop and scale workflows and business applications.
JobTraQ is able to handle much greater complexity than Trello, including the ability to manage work across whole teams and across departmental boundaries. JobTraQ allows you to manage work at a much greater scale with multiple dependencies, including cross-functional departmental collaboration.
JobTraQ is a Clear Choice for an Enterprise Task Management Software Solution
Enterprise task management providers face the challenge of delivering powerful functionality or ease of use and simplicity. Developers either provide simplicity which can be used by business people but cannot handle enterprise complexity, or they offer robust platforms to handle complex task management challenges but are too difficult for non-technical people to use effectively.
JobTraQ stands out from the herd in that it combines both powerful functionality and is easy to use.
No other task management and workflow platform combines:
Visual Workflow – drag and drop with Excel like logical operands which makes it simple to create simple to complex workflows without the need for specialist coding or IT support.
Custom form design – drag and drop GUI allows for any form you need to be developed in minutes and changed in seconds by the business analyst or team leader.
Task Management – a simple-to-use, yet very powerful task tracking system which includes the ability to create and manage recurring tasks, the ability to trigger workflow and tasks from incoming email, and the ability to extend commitment and task tracking across departmental and organizational boundaries.
Audit Trail – a very powerful compliance feature which tracks all system-wide changes no matter who makes them, complete with date and time stamp and a description of the change and identity of who is making the change.
CRM & Asset Management – manage all of your contacts and assets in one place and secure them: no more wasting time trying to locate contact and asset information.
Enterprise security – JobTraQ utilizes Role Based Permissions, and meets all major security standards including ISO, ITIL, NIST 800-53, SOX, SAS 70.
Reporting – automated reporting functionality allows for the fast creation of reports which can be automatically distributed but containing only that information that each recipient is entitled to access based upon their role.
