Communicating with Team Members in Different Time Zones

In today’s shrinking world, many companies are doing business all over the globe. Team members based in different time zones working on the same projects can create problems for those responsible for managing the projects. It can be extremely difficult to share information and communicate with all team members in a timely manner.

However, web based project management software, such as Project Drive, provides the solution. All team members, regardless of their location, receive real-time updates on the project with the automated communication functions included in the software. Not only does it allow team members to send and exchange comments, but will also distribute emails on major actions. The email function allows:
  • Selection of fields to trigger notifications and which users will receive them.
  • Notifications to be sent to one or multiple users
  • Notifications to be sent users when tasks are assigned
  • Notification of users of important new information which requires their attention and converts these issues into tasks
