Task Management Software

"This software rocks golden. Have been looking for this thingy a long time now. My search is over."

" Although I use Microsoft Outlook I found that the task tracking in your software has a better view and layout than Outlook. I like the way that icons can be used for different categories, and the different colours that are used in the main task list make it easier to get an overall picture of outstanding issues."

Groupware tools - Some information you may need to know to get a better understanding of groupware tools and systems

To-Do List Software. Main view of To-Do List Software.

A better understanding of groupware tools and systems for task management allows managers to make right decisions regarding methods and techniques for managing jobs and tasks assigned to employees. Conclusions that managers can make after reading comparisons and understanding features of the best examples will significantly improve task management within their organization, as well as provide employees with many benefits, such as remote collaboration, real-time communication and data sharing. This groupware review will give you a short yet important description of task management examples and groupware pros and cons.

Groupware is a multi-user software solution that includes collaborative tools to support user communication, data sharing and remote access to common data storage (database). The best examples for task management (e.g. VIP Task Manager, MS Outlook) allow several users to connect to a groupware server over local network or Internet, access public and private information stored on the server, and manage tasks according to priority, due date, status, reminder and other task characteristics. Groupware tools and systems contribute to improvement of employee productivity and timely completion of tasks.

Generally, most comparisons point at several pros and cons. If to be brief and not to describe pros and cons of the best solutions in detail, the following list of important features needs to be considered:

  • Groupware tools and systems are usually implemented in organizations which are ready to use LAN and Internet as means of communication between employees.
  • Tools and systems have many features for task management. Sometimes organizations do not use the full range of features, so they may find groupware too complicated. However, advanced task management groupware tools have customizable and intuitive interface, so for organizations that use advanced groupware the problem doesn't exist.
  • While using groupware, you need to take care of permissions and user access to information stored on a server. Usually groupware has powerful permission management tools to set user access levels and define specific permissions per user.

In order to gain benefits and find out whether solutions meet your needs, you can use VIP Task Manager. This system is based on a client-server technology and allows multiple users to connect to a single database through LAN and Internet. The system has powerful permission management tools and intuitive interface options.

VIP Organizer is single-user software for 'todo' management. It's not a collaborative solution; however, it can help you manage your personal tasks and todo lists.
