Project Management Software Gets a Boost

LA HABRA, CALIFORNIA--(Marketwire - July 8, 2009) - Leaders in the Project Management Software space, Project Manager Online Ltd today announced the release of a major upgrade of their online system.

"Firstly, we've dropped the pricing substantially" says Craig Nicholson, Technical Director for Project Manager Online Ltd, creators of the online project management tool.

"Where our competitors are putting prices up to stay profitable, we've dropped our prices to allow more customers to signup. Since we dropped our price from $45 to $25 per month, we've had a substantial increase in sign ups. This helps our customers who are money conscious at the moment, to keep using the software to deliver projects on time. It eases the pressure on projects, which are typically financially constrained in the current climate" says Nicholson.

Project Manager Online first released their software in July 2008 and have seen a marked increase in market share. Their claim to fame is their Project Planner is the most advanced in the online world and it compliments Microsoft Project perfectly, by allowing the import and export of MS Project Plans freely.

"In this release, we've provided full multi-page Gantt printing, so that customers can print large Gantt charts across multiple pages, to put up on a wall" says Nicholson. "We've also dramatically increased the speed of the application and improved the reliability, by fixing all known bugs. It's now cheaper, faster and more reliable than ever before and we want to keep it that way. We also added support for large project plans by boosting the number of tasks per page. You can now manage tens of thousands of tasks using this innovative Gantt Chart Software online".

To help customers to use the software in trial mode, the company has released a new "Get Started" page which provides shortcuts to the most popularly used parts of the system. They have also released a suite of online project management video tutorials so that users can feel confident about using the system within minutes of logging in.

"Getting people to interact with the system was important to us, with this latest release" says Nicholson. "No longer do they have to work out how the system operates. They can now be lead by the hand to create projects, enter tasks, assign resources and produce reports when they want."

In the coming months, ProjectManager.com will likely integrate the Project Management Templates provided by Method123.com, as well as the Project Management Methodologies offered at their sister site MPMM.com

By offering online software, templates and methodologies, they hope to substantially increase their market share.
