When it comes to an IT project, staying on time and on budget is the number one priority, even though it can seem like more of a dream than an achievable goal. According to a recent CIO.com survey three common project problems are:
- Lack of regular communication
- Lack of accurate visibility into scope and change in projects
- Not having a system in place for viewing, approving and tracking changes
The solution to these mistakes is to enable conversations between the person giving the work (service buyer) and the person doing the work (service provider) to keep everyone on the same page. Ensuring clarity on scope, progress and status allows everyone to stay updated while enabling informed decisions as projects, needs and environment change.
Field Nation’s new Work Order Status and Progress Bars are a simple solution that shows how work is getting done. Status and Progress bars now appear on all work orders and provide game-changing visibility into the status, progress, and future expectations of a job while enabling a conversation between all stakeholders.
Automatic alerts notify both the buyer and provider when a change has been made to a work order. Clarifying and approving a change is now required which improves visibility and prevents confusion.
