papirus.net – Project Management Service
papirus.net’s Project Management Service is designed for small to medium sized organizations. Papirus makes it easy for you to manage projects, organize your tasks, monitor overdue assignments, arrange a formal workflow, and communicate with other project team members. Papirus is a web-based application, with a corresponding app for every popular mobile platform, including: iPhone/iPad, Android, and Windows Phone 7. Papirus is based on the idea of structured communication. Its main aim is to have all of the information about a specific task recorded in one place, while ensuring that the process of assigning responsibility for that task is very transparent. Transparent assignment of responsibility for each task ensures that necessary information is delivered only to the involved members, without distracting other team members with non-relevant communications. By keeping other team members focused on their own responsibilities, the amount of time it takes to complete a task – whether a small assignment or a large project – can be reduced, thus improving overall task management. When a team member logs into Papirus, they see a list of the tasks they are currently responsible for. They can organize their list of tasks using the GTD® (“Getting Things Done®”) method, or whatever other method they prefer. By default, a team member will not see any information about tasks that other team members are responsible for, though they do have the ability to view them, if those tasks are shared with them.
