Project Management Software Project Insight Supports Armada Ltd.

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 24, 2012) - Project and portfolio management software, Project Insight helps the project team at Armada Ltd. manage its projects more effectively. Armada Ltd. is a world class provider of prevention, preparedness, response and recovery solutions for both public and private sector clients. Project Insight's online project software allows the dispersed project team at Armada to access their projects from any location.

Before Project Insight, the project team at Armada used an in-house project management system; however, as the company expanded, they outgrew that solution. As a significant portion of their employees work from remote home offices, it was mission critical for all project information to be accessible online. The organization also needed a good way to track and report on time at a very detailed level. The Chief Operating Officer (COO) decided to find a more robust project and portfolio solution.

Armada selected Project Insight because the software:

  • Provides visibility across all projects
  • Gives a view into all resources and their rates
  • Allows team members to track time down to 15 minute increments
  • Provides detailed reports on all time and expenses on all projects

The project and portfolio software was implemented with a small team of project managers, but as the company expanded, so did the number of team members. The ease of use and intuitive navigation made Project Insight easy to implement for all employees, even those with less experience with new technology.

Today, the entire project team at Armada uses Project Insight on a daily basis. Project specific reports are run weekly to evaluate the status of all projects across the company. The COO states, "These reports help Armada identify where we can save an extra few thousand dollars to keep us business focused and profitable."

Another benefit was realized with their QuickBooks integration. Previously, time entries were being manually calculated, resulting in a high number of payroll errors. Project Insight's integration with QuickBooks has reduced the number of payroll issues by 90%!
