The mad summer holiday season is here again. As everyone heads off for their two weeks of sun, sea and sandcastles, you’re juggling having the kids home from school with the demands of your own work and making sure there’s cover in the office.
The holiday season is supposed to be a relaxed and happy time. But, keeping the kids occupied and the work flowing can be a nightmare. Every year you promise you’ll do it better next time. And then, before you know it, it’s August again!
Unless of course you’re using Verto. Because with Verto you have expert help at hand.
Verto: your summer holiday hero
We’re proud of how Verto makes project management and collaboration easy. And we’re proud of all the extra benefits it gives you. Like how you’ll find surviving the summer holidays can be a breeze.
1.Flexible working when the kids are at home
Verto is cloud-based project management software. This means, as long as you have an internet connection, you can access it from wherever you are, whenever you need to. Be that the kitchen table, the back garden or even the play park. At six a.m. before the kids are up, or at midnight when they’re asleep.
All of which makes it much easier for you to balance the demands of home and the office and work flexibly. Because flexibility is exactly what you need to keep your projects on track and your kids happy – at the same time.
2.Easy handover when people cover for each other
With Verto, anyone who has access to the system can see all your projects in one place. Everyone working on it will be working to exactly the same project management process. And real-time updates mean you can see exactly how your project is doing at any time.
This means it’s much easier for staff to help each other out and provide holiday cover. Handover will be a simple process as all a project’s information is in one place in a format that all your staff will understand and be familiar with.
3.Remote working for those who just can’t let go
We all need to take time off from work so we can relax and recharge our batteries. It’s good for our mental and physical health and helps us return to work refreshed and raring to go.
However, there are times when it’s less stressful if you can stay in contact with the office while you’re away. Perhaps a project unexpectedly hits a critical point just as you’re about to go off on the holiday you booked last year. Or a team member goes off sick and you need to help cover for them.
Whatever the reason, with Verto you can work from anywhere with an internet connection and use its instant messaging tool to keep in touch with your team. Which means, when you need to, you can enjoy the best of both worlds – a happy holiday and a well-supported, stress-free office.
