Parks and Recreation uses Viewpath to take control of projects

Excel just doesn’t cut it

Chapel Hill Parks and Recreation‘s goal is to provide every citizen the opportunity to enhance their quality of life. The staff work hard to handle requests and prepare for events.

Prior to implementing Viewpath, the department relied on Excel spreadsheets for their planning. With dozens of tabs and multiple locations for files, it was easy to miss things.

“We needed a way to get our employees more proactive on project tasks,” says Wes Tilghman, Marketing & Sponsorship Manager, Chapel Hill Parks and Recreation, North Carolina. “We hoped that an online project management solution would make it simpler to delegate and collaborate.”

Viewpath dramatically enhances communication

Chapel Hill Parks and Recreation began their foray into online project management with Viewpath by selecting two users for a pilot program.

“With Viewpath’s simple-to-use interface, it’s easy for staff to update their tasks, comment on status, and have visibility on the projects they need to see” Tilghman reports. “They don’t need to wait to be assigned to a task, but take the initiative to get it done,” Tilghman explains. “I can see exactly how much progress my staff has made, and Town staff and managers can see their requests and how we’re prioritizing them. Viewpath helps us stay in the loop.”
