Having run an agency for over ten years, our biggest challenges always seem to boil down to managing our team and juggling the resources we need to meet project deadlines.
With finite resources it can sometimes feel like a game of Whac-A-Mole.
A mistake in forecasting can mean we need an engineer to temporally switch projects to help meet a commitment — which in turn creates inefficient workdays and hurts overall job enjoyment.
Added to that, is the need to factor in paid time off, sick leave and contractors that may have other commitments.
Teamroll is a new app we’re building and launching soon that solves this dilemma and gives us the 10,000 foot view needed to plan and forecast accurately.
Do you run an agency or manage a team and need to juggle multiple tasks and projects at any given time?
Teamroll helps project managers and product owners forecast more accurately.
Can you take on that new project or will you need to recruit a new team member?
Or maybe you need to drum up more project work to keep your team busy?
For employees and contractors, you’ll be able to see your current and future workload, and plot out any upcoming paid time off or other types of leave (avoiding any clashes with other team members, or when a project milestone is looming).
Our goal for Teamroll is to take what used to be a physical wall planner on your office wall, and transform it into a digital one.
Keep your whole team on the same page, and avoid any nasty surprises.
Is this the tool you’ve been waiting for someone to create?
We’re currently looking for a small group of closed beta testers. If you’re interested in trying it out for your team, check out the Teamroll website and get in touch.
