Beginning a new project can be an exciting time, but it can also be overwhelming - especially when the project requires a lot of time, resources and team members.
Although comprehensive planning and organization can go a long way, there are technology platforms that can be leveraged to simplify the project management process even further. Through these platforms, project managers can delegate tasks and track progress, while team members can share ideas and collaborate in a single environment.
