Most teams use different softwares to improve their work and increase productivity. These tools are often hard to setup and take away from the overall efficiency of managing a team.Workestra’s marketing team uses WorkestraHere at Workestra, we use Workestra to automate many aspects of our business. Our teams use Workestra to mange Product, Marketing and Sales workflows. On the marketing side, every time I’m on the go and I comes up with an idea for a blog or instagram post, I use the mobile app to enter it as an “idea”. When I get back to my desk, I add more details, a short copy along with an image to add a nice visual treatment. Once I’m happy with the edits, I mark it as “pending approval” for the head of marketing to see. If everything looks good, it gets moved to the publish state and that’s it!
