We mostly use Daylite for managing our projects and tasks. Our video productions involve a large number of researchers, video editors, translators, and multimedia production people. Daylite allows us to easily schedule tasks and to have a clear view on what is going on at any moment of time.
A few years ago I was looking for a task and project management software. I tried out various programmes, but none of them offered anything that actually made my work more friendly and enjoyable. When I tried Daylite it drew me in right away with the beautiful reports it was able to generate out of the box. The next big killer feature was the freely available server module which allows multiple machines and people to access the same database.
Daylite’s offline feature and Daylite touch allow us to distribute tasks as soon as things come up. Then we can follow this up with beautifully printed list of tasks for those who still react better to paper than to emails. Daylite really improves our communication and let’s everybody know what is in the pipeline and what has been accomplished.
We mostly use Daylite to facilitate team working together. Daylite’s offline functionality and Daylite touch make it easy for everybody to enter information into the system, regardless of whether they are working on their desk, are in a meeting, or are working somewhere in a train or a plane. The system then takes care of updating the server when feasible.
Daylite helps us to keep projects on track and alerts us as soon as something goes wrong. Everybody in our teams feels that they have a better overview of what they are working one. As a result, people are more at ease, more productive and can react to changes quicker. Everybody in our teams seems to be happier at work.
