About the Product:
Online Project management
To manage your projects you need the right tools. Binfire gives you all tools you need to manage and work on your projects. Break you project down to high level tasks and then breakdown each task to yet smaller tasks and so on. This concept called WBS is a powerful tool that provides good understating of all tasks in a project. Use the interactive Gantt chart to graphically view your project. Ask your team to write status reports at the end of every working day as to what they have done, what they will do tomorrow and if they are facing any issues which needs your attention. As project owner you can assign permissions to each member of the project as to what they can do or see in the project. This feature is especially useful when you work with contractors or third party providers.
Task Management Using WBS
The best practice for managing a project is to use WBS (Work Breakdown Structure). Divide your project to a number of high level tasks; divide each one of those tasks to smaller tasks and so on. This gives a top down breakdown of a project. For further reference on WBS check here: (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Work_Breakdown_Structure) Some people call this process Mind Map, but we use WBS to describe task breakdown.
Interactive Gantt Chart
As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. To visualize your project and interact with it, an interactive Gantt chart is the best possible tool. Binfire’s Gantt chart is an interactive representation of your project. You can change your project right from the Gantt itself. You can extend or shorten tasks, create or remove dependencies and record the progress you have made in a task.
Status Reporting Using Secure Tweets
An effective way of monitoring a project is to get the team together and receive status report from each member. In remote projects this is not possible. That is why Binfire has the status reporting tweet feature. This is a secure private tweet for your team. Ask each project member to report every day what he / she has done , what he / she will do tomorrow and if there is any issue that needs your attention
Control Panel & User Permissions
As the project manager you have full control of who sees what and has access to each element and page of your project. The project control panel is viewable only to the project owner at the beginning. The project owner can give full access permission to this page to anybody in the team, for example to the project manager. When working with contractors and outside vendors this flexibility is critical in managing a project.
