Task Management Software for CPG Brands


How to go from feeling like your head is exploding to having a smile on your face

It’s 2022 and lots has changed in the last several years. You’ve heard the expression “digital transformation” ad nauseum. You know what it is, you know you need to jump on the bandwagon, and you’ve likely already started to do so. But how do you best implement a digital transformation strategy? The best way to start is through finding the best software solutions. 

Software can be employed to create efficiencies in your everyday processes. Task management is a great example. Sometimes it feels chaotic. You know you have tasks; you can picture them in your head, but you can’t quite locate them in your various project dashboards and cluttered email inbox (if you’re one of the few professionals with a pristine inbox, props to you).

Why Task Management Software?

Task management software helps you understand where your tasks are located, who’s assigned to which ones, and what their statuses are. Below are a few of the benefits you can expect to see upon implementing a digital solution for this function.

Track Tasks and Meet Deadlines

Do you currently track task deadlines to ensure there are no bottlenecks in the process? Do you know which employee is assigned to which task? With task management software, your team can manage everything in one location. See who’s assigned to which tasks and what their statuses are. Plus, there are automated task alerts to let you know when a deadline is approaching. This makes it easier to keep stakeholders accountable and complete projects on time. 

Stay on Budget

A software solution keeps you on task, helps you meet deadlines, and thus stay within budget. A single source for all communications and tasks helps you set individual accountability and streamline processes. Not only will your company’s bottom line be feeling the love, so will your team members. With software to manage tasks, you’re reducing risk, improving collaboration, and minimizing costs.

Increase Version Control

Do you have version upon version upon version of your assets and content? If you work in marketing, packaging, or branding, it’s likely you do. This is inefficient and highly confusing most of the time. Monitor all facets of your assets' status to trace how they are created, modified, and released with one single solution. This gives you overall visibility of all your versions, so you can ensure your content and assets are always up-to-date and approved before release. This allows you to avoid costly errors and reworks. 

Foster Collaboration

Want to enable your teams to communicate efficiently? You already know what we’re going to say. A task management software solution intertwines all the features you may not have known you needed. Or maybe you did, and it’s just the antidote you were looking for. View task statuses and updates in real time, use one location to store communications, assets, and content, and increase clarity among internal and external stakeholders.

Eliminate the Avalanche of Back-and-Forth Emails

Remember the cluttered email inbox from above? It’s time to address the elephant in the room. Email is not the only way to manage communications, tasks, content, assets, etc. It’s not the best way either. In fact, there’s a much better way! 

With a task management software solution, you’ll be able to keep your email much cleaner than before. Gone are the days of marking a conversation in red in hopes of remembering to go back to it. Gone are the days of searching for that one thing you’re missing. Gone are the days of creating label after label to keep each project organized. Gone are the days… you get the point.

Choosing the Right Task Management Software for Your Team

You understand the benefits associated with task management software. If you want in on the action, don’t worry. There are plenty of solutions to choose from. But how do you choose the right one for you? Here are some things to consider:


You need a solution that can grow with you. Maybe your organization is on the smaller side right now. But as your company grows, and your complexity inevitably does too, you want a solution that can manage that growth and support your future goals.

Ease of use

Is the user interface visually appealing? Is it intuitive? You want to ensure the transition is seamless for the rest of your team. If a software’s interface feels clunky or confusing, it’s likely stakeholders won’t give you their buy-in. 


Naturally, this all must be budget-friendly. You want the best bang for your buck. Look for a solution with your must-have capabilities. What are the best attributes of this solution? From there you can decide if it’s worth the price tag or not. Additionally, many software brands provide free trials and pricing plans to dip your toes in the water before fully committing.
