Why is aki-BOX customized for business in Asia?
Our experts have been working in Asia for a very long time and have noticed big differences. You can only get more work done with customized software in Asia. Our software is adapted to the book "Human Resource Management in Asia" by two experts Yee Ng and Soon Ang. Hence, scientifically proven!
The Three Big Critical Points in Asia
1. Accurate and concrete assignment of work to employees.
We created this into the aki-BOX using very simple task planning functionalities. In addition, aki-BOX has the "Effort" and the "partial done function" for every task. The priority level and task assignment are crucial features in other task planning software.
2. Real-Time status control
Asian managers consider it important to know the current status of projects, tasks, and milestones. Only then can they act quickly. In Asia, this calls for an extended control mechanism. That's why we at aki-BOX developed the part-ready function and the built-in dashboard. The status of large and lengthy tasks can now be better monitored, especially with the partially finished function.
3. Communication and language
Fast communication is essential in Asia. Decisions have to be made quickly. Therefore we have installed a project-related chat function and additional integration functions for external chat messengers. Additionally, aki-BOX supports different languages. So, every employee can use the interface in their native language.
Why is Time and Task Management in General Important?
It's inefficient and unproductive to start work on each task in the order that it comes up, as you'll end up unintentionally focusing on low-priority tasks, and leave important or time-sensitive ones until the last minute when they have to be rushed. Subsequently, you might switch between tasks too often and make little progress on each one because you're not fully focused. Up to 80% of an average working day is spent on tasks with little or no overall value to the business. Task management is important because it gives you an overview of all the work you need organize so that you can see which things to prioritize. Incorporating time management into your process will ensure that you spend the right amount of time working on the right things.
Time and task management will help you see everything you are currently working on and what's coming up, show you your priorities, the amount of time you can spend on each Task, and the most efficient way to plan out your workload.
How to perform team task management?
Team task management involves breaking the project down, assessing the requirements, and deadlines for each task and assigning them to the appropriate person. As a project manager, you're often overseeing multiple projects at the same time and trying to ensure that your team can complete their tasks and get the projects finished on time. It’s important to have a good process in place for recording and tracking the progress of tasks across the team. You need to be able to quickly see the status of each task so that you can tell when someone in the team takes it up. You should also regularly check and assess whether the work is on track or there are any issues that need to be dealt with. When a task is completed, team members need to update its status and the project plan, as well as inform anyone who might be working on a dependent task.
Team task management is a lot simpler if you're using software like aki-BOX to track projects and tasks. Each project can be broken down into tasks and subtasks with start dates and deadlines attached and assigned to different team members.
