New Project Management Software Release Brings New Navigational Changes

LA HABRA, CALIFORNIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 25, 2011) - The latest release of popular project management software ProjectManager.com offers navigational changes that should make the user experience even more positive.

Parent company Project Manager Online Ltd. has just announced its latest release of ProjectManager.com, their popular web-based project management software tools and task management software. This latest release will make the user experience faster and more enjoyable by incorporating some navigational changes based on feedback from the ProjectManager.com user community.

"We found out, based on user feedback, that when users moved around within multiple projects, they often wanted to be viewing the same information in each project," states Jason Westland, president and CEO of Project Manager Online Ltd. "If the project manager was viewing 'reports' in one project and went to open another project, they preferred to open that project to the 'reports' view as well. Prior to this release, all subsequent projects were opening to the 'tasks' page since that is the most frequently used view in the software. We've made this change to increase productivity for our project management user base and I think they'll be very satisfied."

Indeed, when opening other projects, landing where you want to be within that next project by default can speed up the user experience by removing unnecessary 'clicking' time. The user community was stating that they wanted to land in a new project in the same spot they left the previous project – and Project Manager Online listened.

ProjectManger.com is currently in use by more than 20,000 project professionals in more than 200 countries worldwide. With 20% year over year growth, ProjectManager.com is fast becoming a force in the project management software industry.

"Our product is designed and created by project professionals for project professionals," says Westland. "Because of that, we understand what is required of the project managers in the field …. we know what they're up against and what expectations they need to meet. It is our goal to make their jobs easier and we do that by listening to user feedback and incorporating needed changes into future releases. That's exactly what we've done with this latest release and exactly what we do with each and every release of ProjectManager.com."

One key feature of ProjectManager.com that greatly increases its usability and compatibility is the way it interacts with industry-leader Microsoft Project. With built-in import and export functionality, exchanging data and project files with project team members, the customer, and executive management who have not yet made the switch is just a matter of a couple of clicks.

If cost is a concern, you really don't have to look farther than ProjectManager.com. A license costs 10% of what an MS Project license costs, but ProjectManager.com incorporates all of the most commonly used features of MS Project. Plus, it's completely web-based so there's nothing to download or install … ever.

If you're not quite sold yet, ProjectManager.com is available online for a thirty day free trial. Give it a test drive on an existing project and check out all of its features. You can even have some of your project team signup so you can test its collaboration capabilities on a current engagement. For up to date information, you can check out Project Manager Online's project management blog.

To signup for the free trial, or to purchase a license, go to ProjectManager.com.
