In the present day, everyone likes to be hands-on. Being able to bring one’s work anytime, anywhere, gives a sense of productivity and an assurance that everything is under control. At the age of smartphones and productivity apps, one can type documents and make presentations outside the workplace. With internet connection pretty much everywhere, a whole project team is only one message or video call away.
With mobile devices and apps, so much can be done. Now, several programs are made especially for different tasks. Program makers such as LoadSpring provides a project management mobile site app to monitor tasks with mobile devices. Many software companies make similar apps as well, and for good reason. A good number of people are using them.
Statistics show that 77% of companies use project management software. According to a recent research, mishaps in the project or a full-on project failure cause companies to turn to project management softwares for help. Project managers use apps for time management, easier approval of projects, following schedule and record keeping.
The project management industry is growing, and between 2010 and 2020, more than 15 million new jobs will be created to accommodate the growth of the industry. As such, there is poised to be an increase in usage and demand in project management softwares. Companies usually go for programs that are easy to use and are reliable.
Eighty-nine percent of big-scale companies value project management, and almost 90% of them use project management softwares. While the office computer is home to the office management software by default, project managers are also bringing their work with them, as more mobile project management apps become increasingly available.
Several are compatible with popular mobile operating systems, which adds to the ease of usage. Many of them are also customizable, which lets the users match the apps to their needs.
