We all know how chaotic it is to manage several projects organized in compliance with the internal and external policies of our company.
TaskControl, comes in hand to help a lot in this matter, allowing to effectively and easily control the generation and management of information for internal and external use, all organized under the best practictes framework, which will result in a drastic and increasing improvement of service quality towards your customers and give you peace of mind in the management and controlling of your projects.
4- What is the basic architecture of TASKCONTROL?
TaskControl allows you to create a company-id for your company and you can later create several "customers" having each one of them an unlimited number of projects and users(members) (depending on the plan you choose).
For example, you could have your company called "MyCompany" and within it, you could register and manage your "customers" companies (eg client1 with projectA and projectB and client2 with projectsA, projectB and projectC respectively). You can also upload and assign a team of professionals to these customers & projects based on the needs of your planning and from any country all around the globe. In addition, you will be always communicated thru VideoChat with all of them for all your required meeting every day.
Also you will have access to the essential reports of Cost, Time and Scope, Quality and Risk allowing you to know the precise situation of each of these variables at each stage of the project by providing corrective actions if necessary.
5- Ok, so what Subscription plan should I choose?
If you are a freelancer or handle small projects, you could always opt for the "Starter Plan " and depending on your growth you may need to upgrade to the "Professional Plan" (the next available plan). If, on the other hand, you have a large company with many customers and projects, what you need is the "Enterprise-One Plan" that provides you with even more number of projects and users availables.
In any case you can contact us ([email protected]) previously. We will gladly advise you for the most convenient service plan for your company or specific case/project.
6- Can I have several customers under one company-id?
Yes. TaskControl is a multi-customer, multi-project application within your company (called company-id in our context).
Only in case you are the owner of more than one company or whose extension and complexity requires it, you should register them separately under another company-id and hire the appropriate Subscription plan for each of them.
Contact us at [email protected] for possible discounts in the latter case.
7- What about Security?
All of our applications are based on international data security best practices (the same one used for banks and financial institutions all around the world). All communications are encrypted and you (as the owner) are the only one that can access your private data.
8- Will I pay "extra" for applications updates?
No. In TaskControl, we believe that the updates of the application, should be paid only with the user's monthly Subscription fee, thus providing applications updates without additional extra cost. Only in exceptional cases (such as new versions of the application with major improvements) will we be able to modify the prices of our plans according to the new functionalities implemented.

For more technical details, you can contact us at [email protected].
12- Why there is no "FREE" Subscription plan ?
The "free" ends up going out expensive. In TaskControl we know it and that is why we do not believe that a professional service can be offered for "free". Behind each of our plans, there is a technical and human infrastructure impossible to maintain at no cost. Nevertheless, we strive to maintain a basic service (Starter) with a minimum monthly cost that could be well paid with the tools we bring to manage any kind of complexity projects.
Just as a remembering, we offer our customers, email addresses for your company, videochat and any service you might need for your project, that implies you DON'T HAVE TO PAY A CENTS TO ANY OTHER COMPANY in the internet!.
