If you are looking for a basic CRM this tool would work. It has lots of room to grow.

TaskRay

It is well suited for tracking projects that require multiple human resources. It's not the best for tracking personal todos in my opinion.

Pros

  • Allows you to send emails directly from the target's account
  • Allows you to create tasks
  • Keeping track of notes made is easy

  • Kanban Board View for moving tasks from stage to stage. Easy to see where work is. Each team has visibility as to what is coming down the pipeline.
  • Great time keeping capabilities with its integration with Salesforce. Know exactly where your staff is spending their time with each project, across all the various tasks being worked.
  • Quickly identify Blockers with shading tasks. Staff would identify these blockers with a quick check mark inside the task details and Project Management would know to step in to assist. Great feature when working through Sprints.
  • Easy to schedule repeatable tasks for each day or week. If you have recurring Sprint Meetings, you can setup the task to recreate itself after it has been closed during its next scheduled interval.

Cons

  • Difficult to upload targets
  • Not easy to modify a target
  • When uploading targets you can not attach them to tags until after they are uploaded.
  • When listing opportunities in the system, you are limited with what stage the opportunity is in and the star system is not very helpful. The status' are very vague and not always accurate.

  • We would like to be able to sort tasks by task name.

It's hands-down the best PM tool we have ever used. Nothing compares in ease of use and being easy to learn. It also looks great and makes sense immediately

Again, just like the app, the implementation was very easy.

Alternatives Considered

TaskRay does not require you to be a certified project manager to manage your project like MS Project. We also tried using the Salesforce free project solution but it's not as tightly integrated with SF as the TaskRay and again not nearly as easy to use. We also used ConnectWise in the past but again it was it's own silo and not integrated with the rest of our business software so it was difficult to use it in practice

Return on Investment

  • Helps with tracking prospects through the sales/marketing funnel
  • Has led some employees to stop using the tool and going back to spreadsheets. When trying to attach targets to tags you need to do so individually and if you upload a large list you need to do this manually, one by one, and requires a lot of time. So people have gone back to spreadsheets where they could simply just cut and paste new people in.

  • It has highly increased the efficiency and communication with our teams. We are a virtual company and this is the most important benefit we get from Task Ray.
