Setting goals means looking at past results compared to your current ones and Commence aids in that by saving and tracking your company’s work as it progresses.
Risk Management. The success of your company is tied to risk management. Any organization, big or small, is unable to manage everything that goes on around them.

Creating Competitive Advantages. Commence recognizes that when businesses plan, they get a real time view of their strengths and weaknesses at that moment compared to their competition. As a manager, you can view competitor’s weaknesses from the outside and in turn develop a strategy to take advantage of those weaknesses. Being able to observe the actions of rival companies can aid you in identifying other opportunities you may not have noticed.
An online project manager tool like Commence makes planning and executing that much easier. A major part of the success of any project is knowing how to correctly establish the steps needed to finish a project.
