In today's remote work environment or hybrid environment, design professionals needs to be able to get information on their own and then provide feedback when they see challenges with their schedule, budget, or have too much work or availability to do more. This is why Planifi automates some of the most common Manager communication topics by automatically providing staff with the information they need to know, what's their budget, what they've spent, and when are the Deliverables are due. Staff can see Deliverables that Manager assign to them, as well as what projects they are scheduled to work on each week, how many hours they're scheduled to work that week and their actual budget and spent for that assignment.  Managers also benefit, by having their project schedules and deliverable due dates at their finger-tips.
