DeskAway

Simplify Work

3.5/5 (4 reviews)
397     1,102

DeskAway is a web-based project management tool that helps teams to organize, manage and track their work from a central location. We believe that teams can work smarter by automating and simplifying their communication.

With the growing number of small businesses/ distributed teams, increased broadband penetration, and 24x7 mobile work culture, DeskAway is rightly poised to give teams an accurate view of how their projects are doing and help eliminate common problems that occur when multiple people are collaborating: email spam, multiple file versions, lost files, task accountability issues, lack of clarity & work transparency.

DeskAway is positioned between the simple project tools and complex per user per month project management software - its packed with powerful features and affordable plans (plans start from FREE to $99 per month, unlimited users) that can be used by even the most non-technical person in a team.

Some of the hottest features till date are automatic email reminders, cloning projects and reporting & analytic.

 Your employees' worst nightmare

My company switched from BaseCamp to Deskaway six months ago and it has been a major hassle every week to maintain. When we are assigned to do something, my co-workers and I have to create a "Milestone", then a "Task List" then a "Task." Pretty much, we have to enter an assignment THREE TIMES to ...

 Easy to use project manegemnet app with great features

Very easy to set-up and to use. Great adoptions from all users in the team. Intuitive way to it structure projects with milestones, task lists and tasks. Have used it for 20+ users teams and it scales well. It has significantly reduced the volume of useless emails flying around.

Your employees' worst nightmare

01/08/2014

My company switched from BaseCamp to Deskaway six months ago and it has been a major hassle every week to maintain. When we are assigned to do something, my co-workers and I have to create a "Milestone", then a "Task List" then a "Task." Pretty much, we have to enter an assignment THREE TIMES to log it. Also, the calendar doesn't show you when a task starts, it only shows when it's due, something BaseCamp did. When my boss sent issues to me, I did not receive emails which the system is suppose to do, plus they did not show up on my calendar nor on my home screen. I almost lost my job because of this. I've tried using shortcuts to reduce the time I spend each week entering tasks in the 8 projects I'm in charge of, however they did not meet my supervisors' standards, so I'm stuck wasting 2 hours every week entering the same tasks every single time. The shortcut I used was a "recurring task." This is might be a good tool for management, however your employees will absolutely hate it and you in turn.

Managing Bigger Projects

18/08/2010

If you are growing, DeskAway’s project management tools offers an additional feature that can wind up being very important. Unlike many wikis or other tools you might consider for managing a project, DeskAway offers SSL security. While it isn’t a free feature, if you do wind up relying on DeskAway for your business needs, I think reliable security measures are bound to be a plus.
