One of the unique things about our digital transformation firm is that we’re vendor agnostic regarding the tools and implementations we are doing for clients. One area where this comes in handy is project management. If the client utilizes a specific platform, we’ll either sign up as users or they’ll provide us access and we’ll work to ensure the project is fully documented and all assets loaded into the instance that they have ownership over. We’ve used vendors that had their own licenses and trying to get all the documentation, project plans, issues, and assets turned over at the end of an engagement is quite the headache.
As we work across project management tools, some definitely stand out for their focus on marketing-related projects. Marketing-related projects are someone unique in that they often rely heavily on collaboration between internal and external resources, they are often repetitious, and the results aren’t the completion of the marketing initiative but the resulting impact on the business.
The result is that we work across multiple tools… between project management, task assignments, documentation, whiteboarding, asset management, etc. It can be frustrating for both our clients and ourselves as we monitor our progress, manage our internal and external teams, and store our clients’ digital assets as we work.
