We have been successfully implemented WorkNav and its earlier versions for 11 years. WorkNav has provided an efficient and simple method of tracking Council’s compliance requirements to ensure that deadlines are met. Not much effort is required, because each year we simply use a template of the past year to create the Tasks and ToDos for the upcoming year.
Brian D.Manager Corporate Governance, Regional Council
WorkNav was implemented for managing projects, corporate plans, governance, operations and other tasks across Australia. Most of the complex management processes that normally waste a lot of time, and cause frustration and stress, were handled automatically.
John C.Public Sector Manager
I work with other people who often work in a different way to me. But that doesn’t matter with WorkNav, as we each use it in our own way, and still manage to work together as a team, and get things done more efficiently, as a result. I put everything into it that I think is important, or that I want a record of, to help my memory, and to help with planning for future work. This includes my own personal tasks, so I can manage my time better. I like detail (whereas some other team members prefer the “big picture” or have different ways of organising their work). There are features built into the software that allow this flexibility, without sacrificing the information everyone needs.
When we have team meetings, what we agree to do is put straight into WorkNav. I always know where I stand and what others want me to accomplish, but I enjoy the freedom to add my own ideas confidently as well. We use templates for repeated tasks, which saves us lots of time and effort.
Janet M.Small Business Manager
We found it difficult to keep plans up to date without a lot of time wasting in meetings and emails. Without accurate plans, local and remote team members were forced to guess what they needed to do. Sometimes the wrong work was being done and people were stressed. For the last 10 years WorkNav has automatically created and updated plans as we go, so we can be very agile to keep work flowing and do what adds the most value. Completed plans were extremely helpful for audits of Government grants and R&D tax claims. WorkNav has delivered results that I hadn’t thought possible.
Neil M.Entrepremeur and Software Developer
With some local team members and others working remotely, I was often uncertain about what they were doing and their progress made. I was trying to distribute the work and give team members the trust and freedom to be agile. However my constant attempts to find out and manage what was happening and progress, caused team members to become defensive and relationships to become very stressed. When I implemented WorkNav to plan and navigate through our work, team members were able to focus on and take control of their work. As they worked, plans and progress were automatically updated, so I had the critical information I needed without asking, and without interruptions they were more agile and productive. Relationships and trust improved significantly, because I automatically had the information I needed, so there was no need for interrogations. Everyone’s stress levels dropped and we had a happier more productive working environment.
Peter S.Team Leader
I was contracted to develop mobile apps for a company located 3 hours from my business location. Operating remotely and being able to fit the work in allowed me to keep the work life balance in check for me and my family. Using WorkNav I was able to see where my tasks for the project fitted in and what I needed to do and prioritise. When I completed ToDos, the team I was working with were automatically notified and progress charts were updated. So I didn’t need to spend a lot of time finding out what to do or telling people what I had done. WorkNav worked for me and saved a lot of time and stress.
Tim V.Independent Contractor
I was working in an office and remotely, so I spent a lot of unproductive time finding out what to do and telling other team members what I had done. With WorkNav, I can instantly see what is happening, what I need to get done and progress. The best thing is that I don’t have to waste time coordinating work and telling others what I have done and what I plan to do. So I am more productive and feel trusted to get my work done. I strongly recommend WorkNav to get things done and reduce stress.

It is all about increasing agility, reducing complexity and enabling better decisions.
