08.2.2. Construction Project Management With Asana

Sample Asana page

For some time now, I have been using a Project Management application called ASANA.  This is a Project Management SaaS (Software as a Service), which means that it operates in “the cloud”.  Your information is not tied to a specific computer, but is available at any device that allows you to connect to the Internet.

The benefits of this type of application are many, including the following:

·         You can enter information on your desktop at the office and then retrieve that information on a smartphone or tablet at the job site.

·         The information can be viewed and supplemented by anyone to whom you have given permission and access.

·         You can establish teams including managers, designers, superintendents, and even clients and subcontractors, if you wish, who can be adding their input to projects and tasks on a real-time basis.

This application is a glorified, and incredibly useful, To Do list.  It keeps you on track with tasks that are coming up, tasks that are late, and tasks that need to be scheduled.  It reports to you about tasks you have assigned, and whether or not those tasks are being performed.

You sleep better when you know that all the tasks and all your people are coordinated and communicating.

That’s the basis of Asana.
