Manage your web development more efficiently

Wednesday, September 19th, 2018 by Servage

Web development goes though many stages. It all starts with a great idea or vision that turns into a real concept, the base for your application and business. Often multiple persons are involved in the project, it takes a team effort to be successful. And being successful is what it’s all about, since no one can feed himself from great ideas alone.

So how do you ensure success from the beginning? You can’t! But what you definitely can do, is improve the odds. You can surround yourself and your project with skilled and ten-oriented people, you can use professional management tools, and much more. Another thing that you definitely can do, is to use a great tool to organize your collaborative effort, to streamline development and make sure everyone is pulling in the same direction.

Springloops is a web development collaboration studio, used by thousands of professional developers, to manage hand improve their development experience. It has the following functionality listed on their website:

Milestones is where you can track the overall progress of your project, so you always know where you’re at.

Tickets harbors a very extensive ticketing system, allowing for all kinds of reporting and bug-tracking workflows. This is very important to effective development, and works great here.
