Why optimizing your resources is crucial to your agency's success

When you’re in an agency, you have limited resources to play with: limited time, limited money, and limited human power. No matter how great your best people are, they probably still have basic needs they need to take care of, like sleeping, eating, and watching Netflix. These types of limitations are a challenge for any business.

8 steps to setting up a quality assurance process for your support team

When a new agent joins your team you naturally want to help them get up to speed as quickly as possible. But, no matter how good your intentions are, manually training agents can be time-consuming and painful for both the reviewer and agent. Even when your agents are fully onboarded, you still need to train and help develop them. But, as your teams scales, you’ll feel the pressure to hit increasing support targets.

New and improved Workload: Manage your resources directly from Teamwork Projects

In an ideal world, every team member would have an equal amount of work (so no one’s overburdened), the right people would be working on the right tasks (so everyone’s maximizing their abilities), and everything would be delivered on time (with no last-minute requests or U-turns). But in the real world, things rarely go quite so smoothly. New work is constantly popping up, team members are unexpectedly unavailable, and priorities can shift in ways you didn’t expect.

Why you need a single source of truth in project management

Picture this scenario: You have three different teams working on their respective parts of the same project. Week after week, they report their progress to you — they’re on track, some of them even ahead of plan. “We’re nailing it,” you think to yourself. You report to your executives, and everyone’s ready to celebrate. Then, you do the final check-in with your three teams on the project, and you learn a painful truth: each team was on track.
