Z-Stream’s Client Features

Z-Stream’s Client Features

As you already know, Z-Stream has many features that can help cover numerous roles and duties in the company. However, the different roles of each user can transform the way you see the features and functions offered by Z-Stream. Depending on your role within the company and the responsibilities you take on when working on a specific project, you’ll find that you benefit differently from each function.

There are essentially three roles associated with any role within the company: the Client, the Supervisor, and the Employee.

In this blog, we’ll take a look at how the Client role can make use of Z-Stream and how it can help transform the way they view their projects.

Who is the Client?

A client is a person (or group of people) who is interested in the final product. They are investing money, using the project, or otherwise interested in how it’s completed. As the project moves forward, clients need to be able to track that progress and make key decisions based on the criteria that are most important to them.

What Do You See in Each Feature as a Client?

In order to understand what key things clients will be able to see through Z-Stream, let’s start with the project triangle: the scheme that shows three main constraints in any project. These three constraints are:

1. The time constraint: the amount of time available to complete the project, including key deadlines along the way
2. The cost constraint: the budget allocated to the project
3. The scope constraint what must be done in order to achieve successful project delivery

If one scope is changed for any reason, it naturally impacts the other constraints and may lead to key changes in them, as well.

Z-Stream allows clients to keep track of all the important aspects of a problem. It’s no longer necessary to choose whether to sacrifice time, resources, or budget in order to achieve key project goals. Z-Stream will now allow you to track all aspects of the work simultaneously and in one place.

 

Tracking Scope

In order to track the scope, or resources, of the project, Z-Stream’s Task feature can be used. This feature lets clients see the work that needs to be accomplished in order to deliver a product, service or result. This includes statuses, attached files, priority, and other key pieces of information.

 

Tracking the Schedule

Scheduling your project is an ongoing challenge. With the Releases and Sprints features, however, it’s easy for clients to see exactly what’s going on with the schedule. You’ll be able to see the planned work and the terms within which it will be executed, including key deadlines and other necessary timelines throughout the project. As a result, you’ll be able to plan further work and projects based on both anticipated results and the way things are actually progressing. Convenient visualization will simplify this task, making it easier to see exactly how the project is progressing and how much anticipated time is needed to move forward. 

 

Tracking Cost

Every detail of the project matters when it comes to cost, including man hours! There are several features of Z-Stream that can help you keep up with the budget. The Timesheet, for example, offers a report that shows you the hours spent on tasks for each project. With Release Notes, you can also see the complete information about each project, making it easier for you to make decisions and track progress toward your goals. This feature allows you to report and track time, creating informative reports that make it easy to see the status of any given task. This allows you to control costs and allocate budget priorities more effectively.

Precise and useful information that you can use to plan, assess the work done, and make future decisions about the project: Z-Stream offers access to all the key facts about your ongoing projects.
