New Change Management Software Release Makes Tracking Changes a Snap

LA HABRA, CALIFORNIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 1, 2010) - The latest release of project and change management software tool ProjectManager.com makes tracking and controlling project changes easier than ever.

Project Manager Online announced today that they have just released the latest version of their cornerstone project change management tool, ProjectManager.com. This latest release allows the project manager and team better controls over and more vision into their tracking of ongoing project changes.

"Projects start with a scope statement or a statement of work. Requirements are established from all of that information," states Jason Westland, president and CEO of Project Manager Online Ltd. "It's inevitable that project requirements defined at the beginning of the project are going to change at least to some degree throughout the engagement. It happens on nearly every project - I can't think of a project I've managed that didn't have some change incorporated at some point. If you don't do a good job of managing those changes and documenting those changes, then scope creep happens, the project budget starts taking hits, and before you know it you have an out of control project."

ProjectManager.com now allows for tracking of all existing changes, risks, and issues on each of your projects giving the project manager instant views into the status of each of those on an as needed basis. Maintaining constant tracking ability of all the changes that are affecting your project along with all of the issues and risks that either are affecting or could affect your project are critical to the overall success of the project. Left unchecked and untracked, changes affecting a project can quickly throw the entire project budget off track.

"On budget delivery is often one of the key factors in determining the success of a project," says Westland. "If a project manager does not have proper insight into all project changes, then the budget can become very hard to manage. By allowing the project manager and team to track and report on changes, issues, and risks from right within the existing tool is a huge benefit. The fewer places that a project manager has to go to in order to track everything on a project the less likelihood that something will get overlooked."

ProjectManager.com has enjoyed 20% year over year growth and its user base now numbers more than 20,000. The completely web-based project management software solution is used by individuals in more than 200 countries worldwide. Employing 30 professionals in three countries, Project Manager Online is a small organization that focuses on the needs of the project manager and they make it their top priority to meet those needs to the best of their ability.

"ProjectManager.com is designed by project professionals for project professionals," says Jason. "Our user base speaks and we listen. They stated they needed a comprehensive tool that could also help them track changes, issues, and risks and that's what we're giving them. We listen to every concern and do our best to incorporate real project needs into future releases."
