A refreshing, new approach to project management software was released live today at Project Manager.com
Project Manager.com is an online project management software tool set that provides managers and teams with a brand new way of delivering projects. Using the latest Microsoft technologies, digital dashboards and 3D imagery, this website provides new tools and techniques for project management.
No longer will a project manager have to spend a lot of time generating complex status reports and working with spreadsheets to gain a current view of their project. Using this smart, savvy online project management software, a project manager can report on their projects in minutes.
The core of this new offering is the project dashboard. From here, the user can see the status of their project at a glance. It tells them whether their project is on time, under budget and is appropriately resourced. It also shows them a summary of their risks, issues and changes. By viewing this graphical information, the user can quickly see whether they are on track.
"Another novel area of the software is the "Task Manager" says Craig Nicholson, Technical Director. "The comprehensive suite of features allows users to create detailed project plans for their projects. It includes all of the widely-used features within Microsoft Project, as well as a lot more. Users can import their Microsoft Project Plans into Project Manager.com and then use all of the dashboard and reporting features to monitor the status of their projects online."
"As well as simple to use status tracking features, this software allows users to manage resources easily across teams. They can allocate multiple resources across multiple projects in minutes, and then report on their efficiency and productivity," says Nicholson.
Reporting features allow the user to generate a regular Project Status Report and Portfolio Status Report at the click of a button. All of the reports are customizable and allow the user to select the data that they wish to report on.
One of the most innovative aspects is the handling of projects, project groups and portfolios. The software allows the user to see at a glance, not just the performance of their project, but also the performance of their groups -- using the Project Group Dashboard. And on the Portfolio dashboard, the user can see the overall performance of their entire portfolio of projects.
"It's hugely beneficial for users," says Nicholson. "They can quickly see whether they are on track. And if they are behind, they can immediately drill down to find the root cause. In the future, the software will even tell them how to fix the problems that are occurring, so that it can predict problems before they occur. Now that's what I call smart."
The team has tall goals for this new online offering. Their vision is to be the "leading online project management software provider in the world, within just 2 years." With a fantastic name, advanced software development skills, online marketing expertise and a passion for project management, the team believe they have what it takes to succeed.
And they believe that they can generate the right amount of momentum needed to conquer their competitors. "Within the first few hours of going live, we already had trial users logged in and using it from three different countries," says Nicholson.
