In Soenen we used to make planning in Microsoft Excel on weekly basis without defining persons, or detailed input from other departments. As our planning scope grew we realized the need for detailed planning software, as we wanted detailed planning per day / per hour. We experienced that we needed MS project to have everything in one project as Master Project Plan. We have 3 licenses of MS project 2013. We needed several people to view the planning. Open source or freeware was not good enough.
Everyone involved in the project was able to consult the MS Master Project to overview the tasks for their particular project without purchasing a MS Project license. Communication between departments improved, as everyone could quickly check the project’s health on a daily basis. No issues were experienced working with our Master Project Plan, which was a great plus.
- Cost efficiency due to purchasing fewer MS Project licenses
- Improved communication within the company\
"Communication between departments improved, as everyone could quickly check the project’s health on a daily basis."
We have only been using Seavus Project Viewer for a while, but we are satisfied with what it delivers so far.
