Client Profile

The client is a prominent marketing and PR agency based out of Chicago, Illinois. Established in 2005, the company has a formidable network of 10,000+ influencers and has worked with more than 200 prominent brands. They provide a wide array of top-of-the-line services including public relations, branding, influencer marketing, and social media marketing to organizations across the country.

The Challenge

For years, the client has worked without a specialized project management application in place. However, as the company witnessed exponential growth, reliance on spreadsheets and paper became less viable. At a time when they were managing close to 50-60 projects, keeping track of who was working on what became increasingly difficult with static spreadsheets.

Each team member had to be contacted separately through emails, etc. to get updates on any project’s progress. With little visibility into ongoing projects, delegating tasks to the right individual also became challenging.

The client recognized the need for a centralized project management solution that could help them simplify project and task management, improve collaboration, and optimize resource allocation. After assessing multiple off-the-shelf software solutions, they decided to have a custom solution built from the ground up.
