Adoption, Adoption, Adoption
Many project managers have learned the hard way that getting team members to track their time and report their progress is a surprisingly thorny problem. Yet team-entered data is by far the most accurate way to track project progress and manage resources effectively. Project.net is designed to maximize team adoption of tools, as well as to provide as much value as possible while adoption is ramping up.
Project.net's tools appeal to IT teams because they are familiar — which developer hasn’t seen blogs and wikis? There is virtually no learning curve. All of the tools are easily accessed from the personal dashboard. Our tools deliver value right away, and become more reliable and accurate as team members come to rely on the productivity and collaboration tools offered by Project.net.
Getting Started is Easy
Create a project workplan that captures tasks, sets a schedule, and ties resources to each task. Our Project Workplan module is flexible, so that you can describe tasks in the amount of detail that works for you and your team. As your project progresses, you can update your plan and flesh out details.
Introduce your team members to their personal dashboard, which provides easy access to their assigned tasks and progress as well as the project dashboard. Team members track progress not just with time logs, but through submitted work supplemented with associated blog and wiki entries that team members provide as background information about what they've completed.
Enjoy the unparalleled visibility offered by Project.net. You can drill down with the finest levels of granularity into the current state of the project and understand how it got there. You can generate reports for yourself and your management to guide the project to successful completion.
