Since adding TaskAdept to our production tool and publishing dashboard we’ve been able to collect data on time spent on these processes in our workflow. This has given us a greater insight into where we expend our effort in general, which papers consume more time, and how our teamwork is divided. This is invaluable information to aid budgeting as well as evaluating efficiencies.
Managing the peer review process is a fundamental part of our day-to-day operations, so being able to understand precisely how much time each aspect of the process is taking will enable us to continue to adjust and improve the service we offer our authors and reviewers.
Task Adept provides valuable insight into the ways our editorial teams work. The flexibility and adaptability of the tool has made it easy to get accurate data across a variety of journal workflows.
Editorial Office has been using the TaskAdept Timer since it’s introduction in 2013. Our team of 90 editorial assistants record over 18,000 tasks each week, accurately submitting task and time data for over 90 journals. The data gathered from enables us to make quantitative decisions on process changes to ensure the highest efficiency in every stage of our peer review management. As a vendor to the STM publishing industry it also enables us to provide transparent billing which strengthens our partnerships with multiple international societies and publishers.
