In order to successfully manage a project at AGS, organization is an absolute must. Between managing open issues, timelines, meetings, dialogues, etc., it feels as though chaos can ensue at any moment! The best way to avoid disorder and confusion is by having a strategy and keeping documented information logged appropriately. Because of this need to stay prepared, AGS is a subscriber of a web-based software called SmartSheet.
Because SmartSheet’s interface is entirely customizable, AGS was able to manipulate the program to best serve our project management needs. We had a company-wide rollout in 2017 and we haven’t looked back! Project managers are able to provide our customers with up-to-date timeline Gantt charts and lists of open issues with details and responsibilities. We can create reports based on specific criteria that can help highlight our day-to-day or show an overview of what is to come. We’re also able to facilitate open communication between all the departments in our company and we can do all this from anywhere—even at a customer’s construction site!
SmartSheet has been an invaluable tool for our company. It keeps our projects on track and allows us to keep an eye on the small details that may normally be missed. The AGS Project Management Team is able to manage projects at every level while maintaining a face-to-face relationship with our clients thanks to our organizational skills and implementation of SmartSheet.
