Ahah! So we meet again!
Hello and welcome back to the second part of KonarkPro’s introduction series. In this blog, we will continue to talk about the various challenges our team faced due to the shift in the work culture because of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and KonarkPro’s solutions for them.
If you haven’t read the first part of this blog series, you can find it here- Introducing KonarkPro The Time Tracker That Solved All Our Problems (Part-I) , and if you have already read the first part, here’s a little recap to refresh your memory.
Recap: Why and how KonarkPro was built
Jellyfish Technologies is a team of technologists, engineers, designers, and strategists who work together to build intelligently engineered and connected platforms and solutions. We started our journey back in 2011, and in these last 10 years, we have built 200+ applications and have served clients in over 15+ countries.
Why did we build KonarkPro?
The shift in the work culture raised numerous challenges for our company. Project managers found it difficult to review their team’s performance, and HR heads found it hard to record employees’ attendance. The productivity level dropped with every passing day. We needed to come up with a solution. That’s when creating a time tracker struck our minds, hence marking the beginning of KonarkPro.
KonarkPro was able to solve all the challenges outlined above in no time. Read in detail about them in this blog, Introducing KonarkPro The Time Tracker That Solved All Our Problems (Part-I)
Now let’s discuss the other challenges we faced during remote working and KonarkPro’s solution for them.
Remote working: Challenges and KonarkPro’s solutions for them
1. Clients’ invoices
Before the remote work culture, project managers had to go through manual records of employees' working hours to build clients' invoices, which demanded much time and effort.
During remote work, keeping manual records was no longer an option. With no reliable way to record their team members' working hours, project managers couldn't create accurate clients’ invoices.
With KonarkPro, the process of creating client invoices became convenient. Manual records were replaced by KonarkPro’s automated timesheets that project managers could directly use to raise invoices and process them for payments.
2. Finance management
Managing finances and keeping up with the estimated budget for a project was a constant challenge we faced while working remotely.
Low productivity, delayed work submissions, poor time management were some of the reasons behind deadline extension and budget overrun.
With KonarkPro’s automated timesheets and descriptive reports, our project managers could evenly distribute work among team members and figure out whether they needed more or fewer team members. This allowed the team to stay under budget and deliver projects on time.
Furthermore, with the help of detailed reports of projects that went over the budget or required deadline extension, we could identify its causes and take necessary steps to prevent it from happening during the next project.
These are just a few of the solutions that KonarkPro provided us for our problems. In our next blog, we will talk about these problems and KonarkPro’s solution for them in detail.
Starting from our HR department to our project managers, we will discuss the problems they faced in detail and how KonarkPro saved them like their knight in shining armor.
We will see you soon! Au Revoir!
