How does Tenrox PWM compare with other Project Management & Planning apps?
The Tenrox Project Management Software module brings teams together, allowing them to stay up to date on the progress of any project. This project planning software helps quickly pinpoint scheduling conflicts to ensure the workload is being evenly distributed.
With the Resource Management module’s skill management, as well as its capacity and resource planning components, users can ensure the right resources are dedicated to the right tasks. Each team member can view his or her tasks in the system to determine which items are due first.
Users can assign team members to projects in the resource management system. Resources can be “hard booked” or “soft booked” on projects to allow for the many changes that will occur as a project evolves. This also can allow some managers to be given the ability to soft book resources until upper-level management can review the allocated resources and choose which employees to hard book.
While many projects focus on the tasks to be performed, Tenrox Project Management Software focuses on the people who serve as resources for the project. As teams have become more global, it’s more important than ever that businesses have a way to stay informed about which team members are working on which tasks.
Tenrox Project Management Software helps businesses balance the resources they have, while also helping them determine if more team members should be added.
While Tenrox Project Management Software could help businesses of all sizes, it’s ideal for businesses with teams exceeding ten employees who will be using the system. Juggling this number of team members can prove challenging for even the most organized team leader, which can lead to potentially devastating scheduling errors and missed deadlines.
Tenrox is also a great solution for businesses with remote employees and contractors who will be helping with a project. Employees can track projects and input time spent working on individual aspects of a project.
Users can immediately identify employees that have specific certifications and skills in the reporting section of Tenrox Project Management Software. These skills can include proficiency in foreign languages, including French, German, and Spanish.
Employees can update these skills in the system at any time, noting whether they’re ready to perform these skills, interested in learning them, or not interested at all. This information can be valuable when a business works to determine how to spend its training budget for the year.
From national holidays to annual vacations, Tenrox’s project management software keeps an employee’s availability up to date. When a team member will be out of service on a specified date, that team member will show as unavailable in the system, allowing managers to shift plans accordingly.
Businesses aren’t locked into generally-recognized national holidays. Under settings, a user can remove and add holidays as needed.
Unlike other HR solutions that require businesses to use template timesheets, Tenrox Project Management Software lets users customize timesheets to include the information a business needs to capture. Since each business has its own unique set of projects and client types, it’s important to have project management software that works the way a business does.
The time management system within Tenrox Project Management Software also makes reviewing and approving timesheets and leave requests easy. Managers have the ability to review reported time tracking before a client is billed for it as a safeguard against errors.
For any business, getting paid is top priority. Tenrox provides users with the ability to import information on credit card transactions to hasten the expense reporting process. Receipts can be scanned and attached to reports to make the reimbursement process as paperless as possible. Having electronic copies of receipts also helps a business in the event of an audit.
With built-in cash advancement and multi-currency support, Tenrox Project Management Software is flexible enough to accommodate any group of clients. Reporting allows businesses to track expenses by category to identify areas where spending can be cut.
In the course of doing business, financial reporting is an ongoing battle. Businesses are required to keep up with projected budgets and compare them to actual budgets, always planning well into the future. Using Tenrox Project Management Software, businesses can keep an eye on overall financial information or view just the information that pertains to a specific project.
Tenrox’s project management software includes several tools to automate the process of financial planning and tracking. The Financial Planner pulls it all into one spreadsheet, allowing business leaders to easily see where budget projections are falling short.
Tenrox’s project planning software integrates with a variety of solutions, including its own full suite of project and billing solutions. This easy integration allows businesses to begin using the software immediately, without waiting for code to be written to help everything work together.
Among the many popular business solutions included in Tenrox’s integrations are PeopleSoft, Oracle, Paychex, Sage, and Microsoft Sharepoint. This instant interaction means businesses don’t have to replace their favorite applications when they add Tenrox Project Management Software to their toolbox.
