Barvas

End-to-end project management & mind mapping

5/5 (2 reviews)

Barvas Overview

Barvas is a complete project management solution that helps organizations create and manage tasks, timelines and projects, supported by mind mapping techniques, dashboards and social communication. The platform enables users to breakdown challenges by capturing information, knowledge and ideas in order to work out the best way forward.

Barvas enables users to manage projects from start to finish, helping teams understand objectives, compile requirements, create plans, deliver projects, and finally, monitor and review. Mind mapping techniques help explore challenges with visual cues to effectively break down each element. The map explorer allows teams to isolate and explore a certain element or sub topic without the clutter of surrounding information. The tree layout helps teams brainstorm and capture information, while the affinity layout helps to group and share information.

Information captured through mapping helps identify necessary tasks or projects that can be assigned and monitored through the workspace, task list, and task board. Individual team members can get a view of their own tasks, while managers can view the entire team's workload, and filter by resource. The task board helps visualize projects as they progress, helping users spot bottlenecks or a blockage.

Barvas allows teams to collaborate and share information by adding links, comments and notes to task cards. Users can invite members to specific areas for input, as well as instigate conversations around a branch, task or subject, notifying the relevant @user. Notifications help keep track of any additions, deletions, or changes, providing an audit trail for traceability.

The Benefits of Barvas and Mindgenius

Used Weekly for 6-12 months

The standout benefits of Barvas for me are the opportunities for real time online collaborative working and being able to report progress at a glance via the Task Board which provides a simple visual dashboard overview on progress and risk status.

Being able to manage, monitor, communicate and report within Barvas allows Project Teams to get the optimum balance between project action and project admin.

As an existing user and advocate of Mindgenius, I've continued to use Mindgenius for complex task management activity at the start of a project to define the full critical path with start and end dates. I can then easily transition to BARVAS for milestone management and reporting which saves me time on creating bespoke status reports for my clients.

Pros

Ease of use and quick visual status reporting

Cons

I'd like to see start dates as well as end dates to help with prioritisation but this wouldn't be a pre-requisite for me as I already do this in great detail in Mindgenius so I'm happy to use the Barvas product for milestone management and reporting
