3 Years Old!: Thanks*3

Hi everyone!

It is always difficult to define the exact day when a startup is born. It could be the day when the idea was born, or when the team meets for the first time or the day when the company begins “officially” its activity. We opted for the latter option and, therefore, just these days we are celebrating Doolphy’s birthday.

 

During these 3 years we have grown a lot in every way: team, product, business… But certainly what we feel most proud of is how the Doolphy community has grown: customers, suppliers, fans, followers, friends. We still feel like a startup, trying to improve every day our product and offer a better service.

We want to thank*3:

- Thanks for following us through this blog, our Twitter, Facebook, etc.

- Thanks for your comments, suggestions and complaints.Your opinion is very important to us!

- And, above all, thanks for choosing Doolphy to manage your projects!

Up With Your Projects!

GNOsHello!

A “social project” has many common elements with projects that are developed in different environments, such as the business world. The good use of the resources that are available is the key to achieve the planned goals. To do so it is necessary to have a plan, a non-interrupted internal communication and keep track of the project development.

Hello everybody!

Managers & Directors: Doolphy

With this post, we close a series about profiles related to project management and how Doolphy helps them in their work.

Today we want to talk about managers and directors who, although often are not directly related to project execution, are really interested in its development and outcome.

Before using Doolphy, Adriana used to spend a lot of time with the overall coordination of the company projects. Not being involved in the day to day of projects, she constantly needed to meet the various project managers to know their progress.

Doolphy Actors (III): Customers

Doolphy CustomersHello!

This week we want to continue writing about the different profiles who participate in project management. This time, it is the turn of customers and how they can contribute and be more involved in the projects that other companies are developing for them, thanks to Doolphy.

To understand it better, we are going to explain David’s experience. Louis (Commercial Director at a specialized website development company) has been contacted by David to make a website for David’s business. Once the budget and the project plan have been approved, David wants to be kept informed about its progress in a daily basis.

That is why Louis has created a Doolphy user for his customer, David. Thanks to the role and permission system, Louis assigned David a customized role based on the “guest” predefined role. Now, David can track the progress of the project, and at the same time, Louis can keep in strict secret some internal aspects like cost per hour of his employees or additional sensible data about other customers.
