HIKE2 is thrilled to announce the official launch of its new Salesforce-native agile project management app, WayFinder PM.
Originally developed for HIKE2’s internal use with client projects, so many clients embraced and continued using the app after initial project completion that it only made sense to make the tool available on a larger scale.
Art Schrage, Director of Development & Integration Services explains, “Historically, as consultants working with Salesforce, we’ve frequently built PM tools from scratch within Salesforce for large Salesforce projects. We started using something similar to WayFinder PM with one of our partners and it just grew from there.”
Clients appreciate both the simplicity of the tool and the fact that it’s built right in Salesforce. “You can jump in with almost no training, and it helps with both Salesforce adoption and usage since many project participants are already going into Salesforce regularly,” Art says.
A key goal for WayFinder PM was to overcome the common challenges of other project management apps, including steep learning curves, complicated features, and the resulting low user adoption. Designed with digital transformation projects in mind, WayFinder PM provides ticket management, product iteration and sprint planning, project-level information like user stories, and flexibility to track various processes based on business needs.
Not only can managers and team members quickly and easily understand their project status, WayFinder PM also provides continuity, allowing users to continue tracking any HIKE2 Managed Services work after their initial project is complete as well as any internal projects that naturally follow.
With WayFinder PM, you’ll seamlessly and organically increase team collaboration, ensuring that everyone is always on the same page. The app does this by delivering:
- Simple setup and training process
- More complete and better organized documentation
- More effective project governance
- Streamlined tracking ability for business processes
Best of all, WayFinder PM is built with simplicity in mind, so you can focus on what really matters: reaching new heights in business optimization and ROI.
WayFinder PM Highlights
Agile Project Management
WayFinder is an easy-to-learn, native Salesforce project management app that tracks the most important aspects of any project. It can be used as a stand-alone app or in conjunction with tools like Jira and Azure DevOps.
Improved Team Collaboration & Visibility
Your entire team can view reports with the real-time status of project work and actions. The tool tracks successes and flags potential problem areas that need attention. Lists can be created and customized for all project roles — from team members to executives.
Ongoing Support & Continuous Improvement
After project completion, WayFinder PM can capture, prioritize, and track requested changes and enhancements, as extensions of your initial project or for any other project management tasks you want to incorporate. Make it your own!
Art sums up, “This is a particularly exciting milestone, because WayFinder PM is just the first of many more HIKE2 apps to come.”
