How to keep projects on track and on time

Ever wonder why you and your fellow employees are dragging along through a project? Whether you’re part of a non-profit or standard business, keeping projects up-to-date and timely can be difficult without a little bit of organization. If you struggle with problems like this, then we have the answers for you and your organization!

1. Keep project information in one area

Scattering project information over multiple documents and platforms is a recipe for disaster. Having to sort through multiple files to find what you need can make you stressed and irritable. To make life easier, find a universal program for your team to use in order to make projects more efficient!

Bento’s Project Management feature offers an easy, organized layout that allows plenty of room for integration between you and your team members. As a project manager, you can assign different tasks to team members with due dates, and even include recurring tasks that need to be taken care of. 

To go along with this feature,  you can group your projects by type and status. Using this tool gives you a chance to see what’s completed and what still needs to be done.  You will be able to see the status of any project at any time.

2. Invite the right team members to collaborate

Inviting the right team members to collaborate on a project allows all the right players to be kept up-to-date and involved on every project. In the Bento Systems you can tag any user to share a project with them. This also means you have control over privacy of projects and only give access to the people who need it.

3. Set project tasks, milestones & due dates so you never miss a deadline

Bento offers many project management tools. With our tools you have the ability to use the ones that make sense for each project. Assigning project tasks lets everyone within a project understand what their job is. Through the CRM, you can create these tasks for others, as well as your own, in order to let other team members know what they are responsible for.

The calendar feature within Project Management offers milestones and due dates making an easy-to-see timeline for all of your projects. You are also able to assign a point-of-contact for each project. 

Another key tool for many teams is using our proposals & billing tool. With this tool, you can easily create multiple proposals/estimates, send to a client, allow them to approve, and pay all within one easy system.

Having organized system within your non-profit or business is a key to success. These are just three of many ways you can make projects easier. If you want to test these tools out for yourself, schedule a free demo today at
