Microsoft project is the most popular project management software globally and has been using successfully by thousands of enterprises and individuals. We have grown and learn from Microsoft project and having tremendous respect for the software
There has been many online project management software but precisely should be named as Task Management Software as most of them do not carry any project decision making tool such as critical path, free float, latest start etc. Yet they claim to be project management software. We tried many of them and they hardly come any closer to the powerful features of MS Project.
ISSUES WITH MS PROJECT DESKTOP SOLUTION
- You will not be able to use the software without any desktop installation. Thus every pc that needs to use must have MS project installed.
- It is not a collaborative solution. Project file can be opened only by one person and they need to transfer the file for someone else to use (or user can use within the network of a company)
- Financial progress and billing. MS Project has got limited capability of financial progress and costing. It cannot be used for project billing
- Lack in collaboration: System collaboration and integration with different stakeholders, employees, vendors etc. is not possible with a desktop based solution. Thus it is used as a stand-alone system
HOW TO IMPROVE THE CAPABILITY OF MS PROJECT?
- Take the power of web based solution to collaborate team and resources: When it comes to project monitoring, team collaboration and resource interaction within the project, an ideal web based solution can increase the capability of an enterprise and it’s performance. Theory of desktop based solution is great when it comes to stand alone application. But a true project management and monitoring can achieve great result with a web based solution
- Convert desktop based solution to a web based monitoring system : TIEMCHART brings you a complete solution to integrate MS Project files into its web based platform via excel import features.
