Morning status meetings are a part of the daily routine at offices around the country, but the amount of time they take out of the workday can make them a drag on productivity. Teamreporter is a web-based application that replaces status meetings, and instead uses daily email messages to keep groups informed.
Teamreporter pings each person on your work team with a scheduled email each morning, asking for information about their progress on that day’s tasks, any issues or problems, and the most important events going on that day. As your team members reply to Teamreporter’s pings, the web-based application compiles the data into a summary report that’s sent out the next morning. This report is essentially a summary overview of your team’s status, focusing on activities, progress, and future challenges that the team is expecting to face.
Teamreporter offers a number of customization options to fit into existing business workflows. For example, businesses can use predefined scenarios, they can ask their own questions, and they can decide for themselves exactly what time daily reminder emails and reports should be sent out. Teamreporter can also be set up to remind team members to submit updates if they haven’t done so by a pre-determined time.
