Why do you need a Task Management System?
How often do you email to organize daily tasks for the day? A email that comes in you feel is important either because you assigned that importance yourself or you have received this email as a very important task. Most people are trying to use Email- Gmail or other email type programs to be able to do this. However, they find, like I am sure you have that this doesn’t work very well. One thing people need to remember is email is a tool and task management is a new tool.
The Right Tool for the Right Job!
I don’t cook but believe it or not, when I first started in my sales career my first job was to sell high-end cutlery. We had set of knives that each customer should purchase because each tool(knife) had a specific purpose for its creation. You don’t use a pairing knife to chop bones from a piece of meat. Same applies to other industries such as construction, plumbing, even health field with doctors, and dentists. So why do we as Business owners and professionals think we don’t need the right tools for our jobs?
I have tested this Smash System!
With a task management system that I personal used for the last few months. I can take the important emails and do the following: Find the subject line, copy it, paste it inside the new task. I can also edit it if I want to so it stands out better for me. I can then go back to email copy the body of the message, the important parts and post into notes for that task. In addition, I can then assign a priority for this either (high, medium or low). I can assign a category to this particular task like a certain project I am working on, assign a due date along with time if I so wish. Then if I want, I can delegate this task to someone else on my team by just selecting the from my list or just send them an email. Once they log-in to the system, they can then do the tasks, ask questions about this task, show me the progress of this task and then show when completed or if they did something with that task. All of it I can see the progress, so I know nothing will fall between the cracks.
The Problem with other Systems!
I have found with other task management there is usually a higher cost and there is a limit to the number of tasks one can assign either to self or team members. However with the system I use, there is not. I have well over sixty tasks and according to corporate they indicate there is no limit to the amount of task you can have in this system. I feel it is one of the best and most robust system of its time.
Ties into the Contact Database!
Not only that, but it can also tie into my contact database- so if I have a task that I need to do for a client- All I do is go to his/her record and assign a task and it will show up in my main task window. More on this in a future blog coming to a computer or mobile device near you.
How Much Time Can I save?
How much more efficient is this then trying to use email as a task manager, how much time have I created in my day because I don’t have to go back and forth. In addiiton, what I have recently heard is Smash got authorization from Google to be able to Synch everything on the Google suite of products like gmail , calendar, tasks and be able to go into the system while using Google or while using this Smash system.
