The Problem

A few reasons why MS Excel isn’t the best tool to manage projects.

“We wanted to make the process of opening new hotels more efficient. We wanted an online solution where everyone could track progress in real time. We also wanted to consolidate all our documents and make them easy to find.”— Aline

The Solution

An example of a sample workspace for hotel openings.

“We definitely gained efficiency since we started using Taskworld. It has enabled us to make complex work very seamless. Now everyone can see what needs to be done, how, by whom and by when.” - Aline

Visual Project Management

Sample marketing project for hotel openings.

“Before Taskworld, we used to gather all information via email, update checklists on a spreadsheet and send it to various people who maintained their own Excel files. With Taskworld, the checklist is updated in one click and visible to everyone. Taskworld also reduced the number of emails sent during the opening hotel process, thanks to the chat.” — Aline

Taskworld chat has been proven to cut emails by over 40%.

Favorite Taskworld Feature

“The overview dashboard which summarized total workspace activity in one single screen is my favorite Taskworld feature.”
