Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) has launched a task workflow tool, Content Kanban.
The company says that, when used in tandem with the Ixxus Publishing Platform (IPP) or as a standalone tool, Content Kanban provides intuitive content task tracking and management capabilities that streamline development, foster collaboration, and keep projects on schedule.
Publishers and organisations with content-centric workflows require a big-picture view of all content and tasks – from first drafts to finished products.
CCC says it applies the time-tested task-management framework to the lifecycle of content, from the simplest project to the most complex – and that, as a result, teams are more organised and engaged, projects are completed on time and on budget and project updates are communicated faster and more accurately to stakeholders.
'Organisations of all sizes that are rooted in content understand the need for complete visibility into workflows, but few are able to achieve this level of transparency with time-wasted, manual processes,' said Jonathan Brett-Harris, managing director of Ixxus at CCC.
'With Content Kanban, these organisations not only see content tasks stay on track, they can invest the time saved on status meetings and gathering project data and apply it to developing new workflows.'
