Task management (Taskworld, Monday etc...)

Feb 3, 2020 5:28PM PST

At my company we used the free task management service, but we finally got a budget for a paid service approved.

People who used the premium versions, which one would you suggest? (app, website)

No company I know goes about it like this.

The CIO, CTO or IT lead takes this and implements it for the company. Not once has it been left for everyday staff to pick and choose these systems.

There are many reasons why this is the way.
1. Company policies such as data safety, HIPAA or other mandates about business data and planning.
2. Backup and maintenance of business critical processes. Tasks would fall under this area.
3. IT would usually do the review about the apps or web pages and compatibility with the smart phones or PCs in the company.

There's more but this is why something's fishy here.

Fishy? :D

It's up to my manager what we're gonna use and he told me to look into the best options since it's just for our team of 4 people? Like CTO doesn't have more important things to worry about than assignment management app for one of the company teams.
I literally meant task management, like arranging tasks within the team, sharing files, assigning responsibilities etc, I cannot imagine our IT department doing a comparison review between Taskworld and Monday... So I asked for the opinion here.
Why is my question fishy? :/

Still sounds like a core business process.

Which is exactly what the CTO and CIO take on to maintain the company from fumbling or getting into trouble over items I noted above.

Also, sharing files on the team is again something the IT would deal with a a core business process along with insuring safety in operation as well as protecting company assets.

Even if I toss all that aside, if Taskworld and Monday do not respond to your queries about features or comparisons that's a bad sign as in what you can expect in the future when you really need help.
