Do you have all information about your product available, or even do you manage this information effective and is it available for all process members?

One of the most difficult aspects to any system is collecting and displaying the right information, at the right time. Outline is one way in which we achieve this, the module can have many different facets and indeed is configured entirely to meet our clients requirements. Allowing the right user to add the right information at the right time.


Capability

One of the biggest benefits of Outline is our ability to integrate this with other systems, using web and programming standards we have integrated our system in many different ways. Each way presenting new challenges that we welcome and overcome in order to achieve what we believe. Define responsibilities within the brief to determine who or which group of users should perform certain tasks in order to complete the brief, we call this “information collection”. These tasks and many more can also be assigned a completion date, this can also link to our Timeline module.


Benefits

Outline is a tool that will enable you to brief your agencies, with the right information, cutting down on multiple entries (via integration) and ensure everyone is singing from the same hymn sheet. The information is displayed in a clear and concise way, reducing the amount of ambiguity of any brief. The ability to set tasks give clear visibility to users as to what is required and by when.
