    Task Management

    We've been working on the development of a series of task management applications for personal and business users. I wanted to get some insight from the community to find out how people are generally managing their day to day work tasks and if anyone uses task managers on a daily basis?

    Task management is the process of managing a task through its life cycle, including planning, testing, tracking and reporting. Task management can help either individuals achieve goals, or groups of individuals collaborate and share knowledge for the accomplishment of collective goals.

    Sounds like a project manager to me - is there a difference?
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    There is a certain amount of crossover with management products.

    1. Customer relationship management (CRM) Focus on providing a system to manage your customers information. Their personal details, contact information and last conversation status etc,

    2. Project Management software. Focus on the management, planning and control of specific businesses projects. Generally are time based.

    3. Task Management. Focus on providing an infrastructure to house lists of tasks, which can range from personal todo lists right through to indepth business projects. Features generally include the ability to collaborate on projects, delgate tasks to felllow workers, monitor the workflow of each task. Tasks can be accessed online, via your mobile and from a desktop applcation. Task managers are primarily efficiency tools.
