Admation is a project management software solution equipped with necessary tools for effective management of marketing projects and associated tasks. With the help of the software services in terms of resource management, project management and planning, approval manages the processes involved in a project from its initial brief to approval and storage of final assets.
Admation is useful for creative agencies and marketing teams wanting to have their marketing projects streamlined in a single platform.
How Admation works
Admation allows teams to effectively manage their projects with the use of advanced software tools. Its first feature is the built-in marketing calendar. The calendar allows users to organize the timeline of their projects and their respective deadlines in a single unified software solution. Mobile prompts and notifications alert users to do their respective tasks.
The project creation is easy with Admation’s online briefing forms and templates. By simply organizing all the necessary tools for project setup, the software already allows for the efficient implementation of the project itself.
Project roles and teams can be customized, to give members of a team access to one or many projects as required. Internal and external stakeholders are given access as well.
In addition, all project files and documents are stored in a centralized storage system. Access to documents and files can be set for different members of a project team.
For employees and managers having a hard time starting a project from scratch, predefined resource templates are available for perusal of the users. This gives new employees a narrower margin for errors common for new managers.
Project timelines and Gantt charts are also available in the system. This is useful to provide stakeholders information about the progress of the project. With the software, tasks and deadlines are clearly delineated.
These timelines are also given automated approval with the use of the approval network schemes of the software. Before sending out files and proposals to clients, the software always waits for the approval of the project from the executive managers.
Department workloads are also managed with Adamtion. The department dashboard shows the progress of the project within the department. When adding a new user, the timeline is updated. This gives department managers the knowledge of whether the department is taking on too many tasks.
Admation also provides automated brief generation for stakeholders and quality checkers. The brief includes important details about the project, such as the deadlines, scheduling and task deliverables.
Project managers also benefit from the software by having the tasks in a particular project outsourced to specific departments within the company. This inter-department collaboration is made easier with higher interconnectivity among users.
This also ensures reassignment of tasks is done in an easier manner. Tasks that are not performed by the assigned personnel are reassigned to the available personnel at a particular moment. Availability of the employees and team members are displayed on the department calendar.
Timesheets are also one of the key features of the software. Time and motion studies are easily conducted with the use of the software’s built-in task timer. The time it takes for a task to be completed can be recorded.
The resources of the company are also managed effectively by Admation. By analyzing the analytics of the previous task cycle, managers are given data on the possible bottlenecks within the resource demands. By predicting them, they’re easily prevented.
The software enables easier administration of the tasks on hand. By filtering and sorting out data on grounds of deadline, client demand or urgency, Admation gives users a bird’s eye view on the status of even the smallest aspect of the project.
Approval dashboards within the software enable users to have a consolidated toolbar for all the things related to the approval of a project. All briefs, files, estimates and documents are stored within the dashboard. The approval workflow is also amenable for modification upon the demands and requests of the client. Shorter workflow is needed for smaller projects. Otherwise, inefficiency ensues.
Similarly, the online proofing tool-set of the software allows users to generate a proofing scheme with the help of tools for review, markups and comments. The proofing tool-set includes basic freehand drawing, polygons, arrows, and marker color control.
Changes within a file are done in PDF or JPEG format. This saves the administrators time by removing the process of file conversion within the workflow.
Other features of the software include the following:
- Integrated image library for various purposes
- File conversion allows users to modify content to ready it for presentation
- Unlimited storage takes into consideration the revised contents stored within the system
- Download cart allows users to find their asset within the software easily and efficiently
- Usage restriction reminders allow users to be wary of any possible copyright infringement
- Brand asset portfolio allows teams to keep consistent branding across their publicity materials
- Localization of advertisements can be done with the software
- Download history allows users to determine the popularity of assets through the download data
The benefits of Admation
Centralized project management
Managers are given better control in terms of managing projects and tasks. Dashboards allow managers to create modifications to the works whenever necessary.
Data integration and storage
The data of the users are stored in secured memory storage. Easier retrieval of these files and documents is done with the use of the download cart features. These retrieved files are integrated to newer projects for easier implementation.
Data on the efficiency of projects are determined with the use of the built-in analytics of the software. Admation keeps track of the length of time spent in a single project, the entire cost associated with the project operations and the number of skills allocated to the particular project.
Similarly, the software also analyzes projects on an individual level. The software keeps track of the length of time spent by a user when performing his specified task. By studying the time records of an individual, managers are given an insight into the level of performance an employee has. This also allows managers to quickly supplement the project team with additional personnel if the situation calls for it.
