According to a recent survey of project management teams, over 50% waste more than seven hours a week because of issues collaborating with remote team members. Almost half cite collaboration issues as a top obstacle and more than a third blame collaboration difficulties as the reason for projects being delivered late and over budget. ProjectPlace is a collaborative, Web-based, real-time system that lets team members and partners keep an eye on every detail that brings a project to fruition.
Using Kanban, a visual method for tracking projects, integrated with more traditional Gantt charts, along with document management, multi-user interfaces and social and mobile applications, ProjectPlace offers all of the services needed for a comprehensive project management suite. Users can drag and drop customized cards on ProjectPlace’s Kanban boards showing work estimates and timeline due dates that can be reviewed and commented on by other team members. To replicate traditional Kanban swimlanes, cards are color-coded to group cards by project classifications. Kanban cards can be linked to a project’s Gantt chart as steps in the project allowing users to manage the tasks and the their relationships in the project.
ProjectPlace’s document management and sharing can be private within the workgroup but users can elect to share documents publicly for external stakeholder review. There is an approval workflow that tracks when reviews take place and tracks all changes. For easy access the document management system integrates with Dropbox and Google Drive.
The application offers robust reporting and add-on applications for enhanced document management and project planning, project templates, and mobile applications that offer all of the same features available in the browser version.
Beginning with a free ToDo version that offers just the Kanban board features, small to medium sized teams will likely find all of the features they need for the $29.00 per month/user Teams plan. Larger businesses can call for the more customizable Enterprise version pricing. The combination of Kanban, Gantt charts, online meeting functions, document management and social features all into one comprehensive project management application makes ProjectPlace an impressive and user friendly project management solution.
