Goodwerp Studio Manager is a versatile web-based solution that helps companies big and small reach their goals and stay on top of their business. It features project-management, invoicing, collaboration, team-management, and reporting as major features. It also includes time-tracking, budgeting, commenting, scheduling, notes (and more) as auxiliary tools intended to streamline collaboration between teams.
It is offered as an online software for professional service firms to take advantage of a single platform to handle most, if not all, of their business requirements. The market may seem crowded with task management tools, financial software, and collaboration programs, but very few can work seamlessly with others, and working with multiple platforms can be complicated, confusing and downright costly. Here is a unified, centrally-located, highly accessible solution that can simplify work and let people focus on their business.
Features, Benefits, Product Strengths
- Task and Project management – Goodwerp Studio Manager allows the easy creation and management of projects, task lists, tasks, and subtasks. It will work equally well with simple task lists and full-blown projects. Users can use one or all modules as needed. Creating a task, assigning it to a resource, reordering, transferring, or printing tasks, and setting a deadline can be done easily with a few clicks. Files can be attached to tasks and comments can be added for clarifications. When a task is updated, automatic notification is triggered for all team members involved. Furthermore, users can bump or manually notify with an accompanying email a colleague when wished for. It also has time tracking, budgeting, progress tracking and project template features.
- Finance module – In addition to PM capabilities, the software contains invoicing features to help with client billing necessities. The Finance module allows users to easily create an invoice or an estimate, and enter full or partial payments to the invoice. Invoices and estimates can be printed or sent to the client through a secured link by email. Income and expense categories as well as tax values can be set for better view of the company’s financial status.
- Reporting – Projects and Finance module connect with one another and provide real-time budget information and reports leading all the way to project performance, client profitability, expenses, and more. Valuable insights which showcase the financial health and efficiency of the company.
- Collaboration and People administration – Goodwerp Studio Manager has an integrated permission level, which gives various access to different team-members within the organization, including clients. Permission levels help make the system organized and secure with different settings for managers, crew, consultants and clients. However, adding clients and sharing projects with them is easy, all the while restricting the lists they can view.
Goodwerp Studio Manager comes with a 21-day free trial, during which time all tools and modules are available for testing. All accounts come with an Extended Validation Security Seal that assures users their data is encrypted while they are using the platform. Payments are processed via Stripe, which ads another level of security and subscription management. Although simple to use, it still comes with online materials and video tutorials to shorten the learning curve.
