Newest Release of Project Management Software Includes New Project Health Status

LA HABRA, CALIFORNIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 9, 2010) - The latest release of project management software tool ProjectManager.com is out and it includes new project health monitoring features.

Parent company Project Manager Online Ltd. has just announced the latest release of their online project software ProjectManager.com with added project health monitoring features. These newest features give the project manager, project team, and management a quick view into the overall project health with some additional detail on the specific trouble points.

"The project manager is expected to always have detailed project status information in front of them," states Jason Westland, president and CEO of Project Manager Online Ltd. "There's no way the executive management team is going to pour over the details of each project like the project manager does. They need a good dashboard type view of the overall project status like we've always provided. We've taken that a step further with this latest release and broken out project health into its own green / yellow / red status view with some included detail on each category."

In ProjectManager.com, individuals can report on and view project health on the following categories:

  • Time – identifies how far ahead or behind a project is
  • Cost - % over or under budget the project is at any given time
  • Progress - % ahead or behind schedule the project is
  • Effort - % of tasks that are currently on schedule
  • Risks – number of risks broken out by high, medium, and low
  • Issues – number of issues broken out by high, medium, and low
  • Changes – number of changes broken out by high, medium, and low

Health is no longer just a stoplight color for each of these categories. ProjectManager.com now takes it a step further giving you the type of specific status update listed above for each category. It's still a quick view that your executive's will love, but with more details that the user community has indicated that they would like to see.

ProjectManager.com counts big names like NASA, Volvo, and Citizens Bank among its many global users. While its user base has grown by more than 20% in the past year to 20,000 users worldwide, the small to medium sized business user base has grown by more than 30%. Seeing the value that they are getting for their dollars, this niche of users enjoy the ease of use and short learning curve they experience with ProjectManager.com.

"We listen to our customers and look for their feedback at every turn," says Jason. "The things they tell us about what they want to see in our product are discussed in our project management blog and go straight to our designers and drive all of our future product releases. We design our product for the project managers in the field and it's our goal to make their lives a little easier with each release."
