My name is Sarah Griffin, and I’m Managing Director and Producer at Flyte Creative Media. We’re based on the South Coast in the UK, and we operate globally.
Before using ActiveCollab, we had lots and lots of information spread across lots and lots of different areas. Various spreadsheets, Word documents, we were making notes and emailing one another, so there were quite a lot of email trains that were quite long.
Another great thing about ActiveCollab is that I know that every single team member is going to receive an email in the morning that has a to-do list that is specific to them. This way, they know exactly what their tasks are for the day, what needs to be accomplished and also, what needs to be accomplished going forward in the upcoming weeks and months.
A big part of my role working as a producer for our clients and also as a business owner is managing budgets, so it’s really useful for me to be able to track the time that’s being put into projects. Also, it means our clients know what’s going on.
The best thing about using ActiveCollab for our business is the fact that you have an awesome overview of the business as a whole. All the projects, all the upcoming projects - it’s all there in one place for everybody to be able to see and, crucially, it’s personalized, so each individual within the business knows exactly what is going on for them and what is most relevant for them, as well.
