Features, Benefits, Product Strengths
- Goal-driven Planning – Projectplace online project management provides users with a Gantt-centered planning approach where goals and deliverables are broken down into a hierarchy of activities. The visual chart enables users to list their goals, set priorities and hierarchies, and add timestamps to schedule these goals. The timeline shows a graphic representation of the project, including all major steps and accomplishments, from inception to completion. Lowest level hierarchy work items can be pinned to a team board to require action from team members. As they complete their work, true progress is automatically reported back to the chart.
- Visual Progress Tracking – This project management tool in the cloud help teams get their day-to-day tasks done while keeping everyone engaged and updated anytime, all the time. Its agile Kanban board allows users to assign tasks to persons most suitable for the job but also get a clear overview of their progress. Simple drag and drop technology allows them to move cards across columns but also allowing flexibility to change column names to represent the team’s workflow. Each card is connected to an activity at the Gantt chart, but also holds information such as estimate work effort, due date, comments, or attached files. From the card, members can directly @-ref their teammates to ask help, give feedback or inform. Every conversation is safely stored and easy to track back in their right context. Document management works alongside the boards to securely store relevant file attachments.
- Project control and reporting, Calendar, Mobile Apps, and more – Projectplace also has resource management tools that monitor utilization of resources across portfolio of projects, resolve utilization conflicts, and provide planned and actual project hours analysis. It also has portfolio, time and report management features that enables users to plan efficiently, make informed decisions and keep teams highly productive.
