Previously I touched on EPM Live as a whole and their leadership in development and deployment of enterprise Sharepoint Project and Work Management solutions. Their key product offerings are: ProjectEngine, WorkEngine, and PortfolioEngine.
In this installment, I would like to address the ProjectEngine offering with our readers. First, ProjectEngine is all about collaboration. The ProjectEngine product is a simple, online project management tool that makes working together on projects, easy. What do you normally look for in a project collaboration tool? A central repository that is easily accessible to your project team? A place where your team can track their projects, revise task assignments and progress, and share documents? A place where project communication flows seamlessly with other tasks on the project and is efficient and effective, and not a cumbersome tool forced on the project masses because the company ‘invested’ in it?
Well, ProjectEngine is all of those things and more. As I took a turn using ProjectEngine, I found it to be a great balance of scheduling options, project management best practices, collaboration tools and reporting options. It is powerful, yet simple to use. Of course, it is Microsoft Sharepoint-based as previously mentioned, and it seamlessly with other business productivity tools such as Microsoft Project, Outlook and Excel.
