ftrack, the project management and tracking software solution for industry professionals in the creative industries, released it’s dedicated Android and iOS app, ftrack Go.
What is ftrack?
ftrack Go gives access to creative pros to work in collaboration with teams wherever they happen to be.
Supervisors, producers, artists, and freelancers can use the app to check on projects to change the status, post comments, and log time. The interface is easy and simple to use so anyone in the pipeline can follow and interact on any mobile device. When you have a busy schedule outside of work, you can still track the progress of a project and comment, make notes, and change the status. Production environments are dynamic especially for creative professionals where change happens on a 24 hour schedule. Modeling, animation, simulations, rendering, and compositing that need consistent monitoring in a pipeline.
Planning, Scheduling, and media review are the only functions that won’t be available on the app.
“We are very much looking forward to using ftrack Go! It will support us a great deal and make our art directors’ approvals independent from their workstations. Our consultants and colleagues working offsite will now also be able to track their working hours with their phones – it’s a huge benefit for the whole company,” says Mackevision.
“With ftrack Go, users can take advantage of all the power, perspective and organisational ability of our desktop version, but on the go. Our powerful cloud-based solutions, combined with the ease of use of a smartphone, has enabled us to further empower our users when it comes to always-on project management.” says Fredrik Limsater, ftrack CEO.
ftrack Go is a tool creative professionals in visual effects, animation, film, and video game development need for simple remote log in to check on the status of their work. ftrack provides dashboards, spreadsheets, scheduling tools, lists, custom attributes, filters and more that allow supervisors to track every aspect of the work.
You get a “birds-eye” view of the pipeline, while customizing the needs of the client. Production tasks change dynamically in a pipeline so this gives the artist an ability to check in on the status of their work to give them the opportunity to respond quickly through a simple interface that will save time and money on projects. Supervisors can manage the time constraints it takes to produce the work while following each artist to keep everyone coordinated and on schedule. ftrack Go is a very useful app that will be great for productions small or large.
