Leading Edge Project Planning Software

Leading Edge Project Planning Software Released Today

The latest in Project Planning technology was released today by Project Manager Online Ltd.

The technology allows Project Managers and teams to plan their projects online. Microsoft Project, the leading project planning software world-wide for individuals does not enable teams to plan their projects online. So the team at Project Manager Online set about creating similar Project Management Software online that allows teams to plan, update and track their projects.

At ProjectManager.com, customers log in to their projects and create detailed project plans to set out the vision for their project. They can then use online planning tools to track the progress of their projects daily. And as team members enter timesheets, expense forms and update their work completed, the system immediately provides the Project Manager with a high level view of the progress of the project to date.

“The Project Planner uses the latest in online technologies to allow Project Managers to collaboratively plan projects,” says Craig Nicholson, Project Manager Online Technical Director. “The scheduling engine helps customers create a detailed task list and then schedule each task by allocating start and end dates. They can reschedule tasks, allocate resources and assign expenses on the fly. They can track progress at the helicopter level, and then drill down to see detailed progress every step of the way. And if they already have Microsoft Project, then they can simply import their project plans and start sharing them with colleagues online. It’s that simple.”

With the release of this Project Planning Software, managers and teams are easily able to track the progress of their project on a minute-by-minute basis. They can view their actual vs planned progress and report on the difference between them. The reporting suite allows them to create project status reports at the click of a button and the built-in Project Dashboard allows teams to see the health of their projects at each step in the life cycle.

“The benefits to a project team in using this smart software are enormous,” says Nicholson. “Knowing at every point in the project life cycle whether you are on track or behind, is critical to success. You need to know how you’re progressing against schedule and your budget. This smart Project Planner tells you just that. It gives you all of the information you need to make quick decisions. It tells you when you’re ahead and when you’re behind. And if your project is over resourced or at risk, then you can quickly and easily get it back on track. It’s smart software for project professionals.”

In the future, Project Manager Online Ltd plan to integrate a suite of project management templates and project management methodologies, to further boost the value to their clients. For further information, visit ProjectManager.com.
