If you want to steer your team toward success, you need to ensure that you're effectively managing your resources, deadlines, and team members. And the best way to do this is using a project management board! This board serves as your workspace for keeping track of project progress, assigning tasks, and facilitating communication with your team.
Without a trusty project management board, your efforts could quickly turn into a chaotic and disorganized mess. You may forget important tasks, miss critical deadlines, and find your crew all not in sync.
With a proper project management board, you'll always have a compass to guide you and provide you with regular updates on your project's progress and status. It will ultimately allow you to quickly identify any urgent tasks and keep your crew informed of any changes or updates.
A project management board also promotes accountability amongst your teammates by keeping everyone aware of their responsibilities and holding them accountable for completing their tasks.
And with all project information housed in one central location, your clients can easily share feedback, ask questions, and provide updates in real time. This ensures that your whole team runs like a well-oiled machine, with maximum efficiency and productivity.>
Email is notoriously bad for productivity: too many people get involved in a thread, and pretty soon all that Reply All spam leave everyone feeling confused and frustrated.
Things get worse when you attach drafts of your writing and try to get comments: what started off as a simple MyArticle.docx quickly spawns MyArticle v2, My Article (John's feedback), My Article v3, and so on…
Important stuff gets lost in the avalanche of irrelevant emails, and it becomes all too easy for everyone to lose track of deadlines.
The challenge of coordinating tasks, keeping track of content, and collaborating has become more difficult now that people are working remotely: when folks are working in different locations, and at different times, making sure everyone is always on the same page is both harder and more vital.>
Kerika's Simple Project Board will save you and your team from endless emails, phone calls, and meetings that come with a project. This board lays the groundwork for you that ultimately brings your teams and stakeholders together like nothing else.

As your projects get more complex and you end up with a lot of cards, Kerika's Highlights feature will help you stay focused on what matters most to you. One common use of Highlights is to spotlight the cards assigned to you:
With Kerika's Dashboard, you can stay updated on dozens of different projects at the same time.
Each option in Kerika's Dashboard is cleverly designed and helps you find everything you need in just a few clicks:
What's New & Updated: you don't need to check for updates on each board where you are a team member; Kerika summarizes it all for you.
What's Assigned to Me: use this option to focus on just those tasks that you are responsible for.
What Needs Attention: important stuff won't fall off your radar, just because a lot of other stuff is going on.
What Got Done: see, at a glance, everything that got done across all your projects – Today, This Week, Last Week, This Month, This Quarter. (No more writing or reading status reports!)
What's Due: a great way to plan your day, or your week, or a Sprint.>
Kerika will highlight exactly what changed, on every card on every board:>
When people are working in different timezones, confusion about due dates is common: Did you mean the end of my day, or the end of your day?
That problem doesn't exist with Kerika, which automatically adjusts due dates to each user's timezone:
In this example, a work item that is due at the end of the day in India is shown as due at 11:30 AM in California, reflecting the 8:30 hour timezone difference. (And, yes,Kerika automatically handles daylight savings time!)
If you need a daily summary of what's due sent by email, Kerika will send that to you at 6AM where you live.
The Kerika team understands very well what people need to effectively collaborate across countries, because the Kerika team is a distributed team, using Kerika to make Kerika.>
You can explore concepts within concepts and even incorporate your files, videos, images, and Web content along with your flowcharts.
You won't find this anywhere else: Kerika invented and patented this!
