If you happen to be a manager, executive, or business owner and are constantly looking for a way to make status reporting easier and more streamlined, then we have an app that may be the perfect solution. The UpdateZen app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone and gives business leaders a way to collect direct reports, updates, and status reports. All the team members will be able to use this app which then takes their information and consolidates it into an easy-to-read offering upon which the manager/owner/executive can rely.

A Streamlined Approach

The UpdateZen app really takes a streamlined approach so that productivity levels in your business stay as high as possible. The different team members and leads can use the app and add projects, reports, status updates, and so much more. What's cool about this app is that all the updates have a maximum of 250 characters so this means it's short and to the point. Where this also acts as an advantage is that you don't have to wade through page after page of information just to find one thing. Team members will also be able to see when their boss or team lead has read their update so everyone is always on the same page when it comes to information.

In its most recent update there were some bug fixes made that was affecting those using iOS 8. The app does require iOS 7 or later to use. Right now it doesn't have a customer rating or any customer comments.

Of course the standout feature in this app is the ability to see everything that is happening with a team instantly and easily. You will be able to acknowledge you have read an update with one tap, you can swipe through the information, send feedback, add as many reports as you like, receive push notifications when updates are added, and request an update on a particular project. Additionally you can set up reminders to keep everyone well managed, you can archive projects, view a history of the project, and plenty more.

What I like about this app is despite all its tools it remains very minimalist and allows the focus to be on the work itself.
