Project Management

In the past couple of years project management software has become key for the vast majority of businesses. Users range from freelance consultants to project managers in big corporations. As a marketer myself, I have been involved in a number of projects and have been testing quite a few applications for different purposes. This is why I decided to share my experience in a series of infographics. (more…)

AtTask Review – A work management solution that makes it easier for teams to stay on track when juggling multiple projects All the big tasks and milestones may be accounted for in project management systems, but what about the smaller duties that come up at random while staffers chat at the water cooler or when they run into each other in the hallway? Most project management systems fail to take ad-hoc work into account, and as a result it’s these small, but plentiful, ad-hoc tasks that generally derail projects that would otherwise be running on time. AtTask is a next-generation platform offering enterprise work management tools that have been specially designed to encompass the entire work lifecycle. In this AtTask review, I plan on delving into the application’s most innovative features, including those that were just recently released. After evaluating the user interface (UI), document sharing, report building tools, agile enhancements, and new Gantt charts, I hope to be able to offer my recommendation as to whether AtTask is a platform that Enterprise organizations should consider checking out.

Project Bubble brings multiple aspects of managing projects into one, easy-to-use web-based interface. This Project Bubble review will examine how the app can simplify the process of managing projects. (more…)

Comindware Project Review – A complete project management software that takes collaboration to the next level Project management platforms are a dime a dozen, but Comindware Project still manages to stand apart from the pack with its professional planning capabilities and simplified project scheduling features. Built on top of the company’s enterprise social tool, Comindware Team Network, Comindware Project creates plans automatically when a user assigns tasks and defines priorities, which decreases the burden on management and increases the chance for team-wide success.

Actionspace Review - Useful tool for companies that are looking to get more out of SharePoint When it comes to collaboration software, it’s hard to find anything more ubiquitous than Microsoft SharePoint. In fact, SharePoint Server is now used by roughly 50% of corporations, according to the Association for Information and Image Management (AIIM). The challenge, however, is that SharePoint’s interface can be cumbersome and difficult for some employees to use. Actionspace provides a solution. The system serves as an add-on tool that workgroups can use to get more out of their SharePoint accounts. In this Actionspace review, I will look closely at Actionspace to determine who could benefit the most from using this web-based add-on system. I will also evaluate the platform’s award-winning features to gauge whether Actionspace is a worthwhile investment from both a cost and time perspective. (more…)
