Engage your Team

Barvas provides the ideal platform to assess what it takes to make a project happen.
It makes it simple to engage with people to capture requirements, identify constraints, manage risks and ultimately juggle resources such as time and costs.

  • Agree and define the background, objectives and deliverables up front, allowing anyone subsequently joining the delivery team being made fully aware of the project aims and their role within it.
  • The make-up of the delivery team in terms of skills and experience can be quickly identified allowing any gaps to be addressed early.
  • Allocate resources to progress projects, activities or tasks. With each person in the team having their own personal Workspace to highlight what they have been actioned with across all projects.
  • Gives your teams the chance to hold discussions around a specific task so when you go back to it all previous communications are in context without fishing through older email conversations or 3rd party software.

The way the product instills collaboration is to be quick and simple, keeping teams engaged and focused.

Oversee and Monitor

Each Barvas user has their own Workspace, which provides a customisable status of what they are working on. They can navigate to any of the projects they are involved in directly from here and access a range of shortcuts to access recent work.

Each user also has access to a Task Board, which provides a visual representation of how their work is progressing. From here, they and their management can see if any potential issues are a risk to progress and are able to address those before they cause delays.

The process is reflected as workstream swimlanes, with columns positioned to reflect stages in the process. Those are customisable for each project.

Task Lists and task Boards provide insight to individuals and management providing the insight required to ensure progress remains on schedule.
