Are you constantly trying to communicate with several other departments within your company in order to know what the status of a project is? Are emails, chats, video calls, or even pop-up visits to your neighbor department just not making the cut anymore?

Communicating the status of tasks when you work in a multi-department company can sometimes quickly start to feel like chaos. If this sounds familiar, you might be in need of a project management tool that allows for smooth communication across departments.

A critical aspect of project management is being able to know where every different project is at.
