Why 90% of Project Management Software fails to be true Enterprise Solution

Project management involves breaking down of entire project into several task and sub task and monitoring progress to ensure completion in time and budget. In the Planning Stage, firstly the activities are listed down in initial level, called Level 1 (L1). A rough period is defined and only the major milestones are defined. With respect to the Level 1 Milestones, further levels are defined. And the number of levels depends on the size and quantity of the project.

In Planning, those levels are called WBS – work breakdown structure. And the final level of the WBS is the activity. Completion of the defined activities under the last WBS root, will lead to completion of the WBS on subsequent higher levels.

There are several software and tools available to plan and monitor project but more than 90% of them fails to provide an optimal true enterprise solution. Let us see some of the major players and where it requires an alternate solution to support the business. While doing this write up, we have got big regards to all the names mentioned below and some of them have helped us to grown in the field of project management. This study is to show how TIEMCHART has position itself in supporting business and where we can be of help!

SAP

SAP is widely used ERP system by most of the large organisation. But when it comes to project planning, there seems to be added tools like MS Project etc to enhance its features. The reason being SAP is a great ERP tool where all the function and divisions of the enterprises are integrated but when it comes to project planning and resource assignment, it lacks simplicity and in some regard does not support.

Let us see some of these areas that SAP does not support

Gantt chart – SAP does not provide elaborate Gantt chart features and is not the best user friendly platform.

Resource engagement and monitoring – There is no standard report to show availability of resources and assignments. There are better tools that do this job more efficiently and effectively

No relation between MM module and PS Module – While project procurement is ordered via MM module and project is handled in PS module. There is no relation as if any activity is completed, it triggers into MM Module to state where invoices can be accounted against such completion.

Complex to handle – SAP lack simplicity and does involves lot of practice before a user gets used to the system. Most of the company using SAP does end up in using other tool for project planning

Having said that SAP has got detailed financial monitoring and month end tool such as revenue recognition etc. which no other similar platform provides

MS PROJECT, PRIMAVERA, JIRA

MS Project, Primavera is another widely used tool for project planning. They carry some of the biggest features on project planning and scheduling that no other software can touch their depth. Now let us see some of the features they lack in providing to the industry

Theory of weight: Each WBS may carry certain weights to the overall project. Most of the software seems to be missing the theory of weights

Progress % update : They follow tradition method of updating Gantt chart where user drag the bar in the chart or edit in % completion field. Using this approach, task update is manually driven by the user. This is great simple tool. But if you are the project owner, you would like to know what validates that percentage completion? Large project require project task against certain validation.


Monthly Progress plan v/s actual: Using these tools you cannot build monthly progress of plan vs actual. There is cumulative comparison report but month on month comparison reports are missing.

Financial progress: Both the tool fails to address financial progress in details if you are the project owner. For project owner, the cost is what vendor bills you and not what is actually incurred in the project (cost to the vendor). But such tool will only support scenario where you are the project contractor and not project owner.

OTHER ONLINE PROJECT MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE

There are lot of online project management software such as Basecamp, Asana, Wrike etc. who are either providing team management, task management or resource management. They are not really a project management software when it comes to project planning and decision making tools such as earliest start, latest start, critical path, resource leveling etc together with good financial progress of project. They are great tool for small scale project and for individuals. But when it comes to large complex projects; an alternate solution might be required. While selecting such software, it is down to the business which tool really solves their problem.

Enhance the power of Microsoft Project into web based solution
Microsoft project is the most popular project management software globally and has been using successfully by thousands of enterprises and individuals. We have grown and learn from Microsoft project and having tremendous respect for the software
There has been many online project management software but precisely should be named as Task Management Software as most of them do not carry any project decision making tool such as critical path, free float, latest start etc. Yet they claim to be project management software. We tried many of them and they hardly come any closer to the powerful features of MS Project.

ISSUES WITH MS PROJECT DESKTOP SOLUTION
1) You will not be able to use the software without any desktop installation. Thus every pc that needs to use must have MS project installed.

2) It is not a collaborative solution. Project file can be opened only by one person and they need to transfer the file for someone else to use (or user can use within the network of a company)

3) Financial progress and billing. MS Project has got limited capability of financial progress and costing. It cannot be used for project billing

4) Lack in collaboration: System collaboration and integration with different stakeholders, employees, vendors etc. is not possible with a desktop based solution. Thus it is used as a stand-alone system

HOW TO IMPROVE THE CAPABILITY OF MS PROJECT?
Take the power of web based solution to collaborate team and resources
When it comes to project monitoring, team collaboration and resource interaction within the project, an ideal web based solution can increase the capability of an enterprise and it’s performance. Theory of desktop based solution is great when it comes to stand alone application. But a true project management and monitoring can achieve great result with a web based solution

Convert desktop based solution to a web based monitoring system
TIEMCHART brings you a complete solution to integrate MS Project files into its web based platform via excel import features. We have developed a solution where the folders can be copied over to our software including task relationships, constraint, lag etc. And taking the desktop MS Project folder to a web based intuitive platform.

VALUE ADDITION TO YOUR PROJECT WITH A WEB BASED SOLUTION
TIEMCHART is bringing the best alternative to MS Project. It is web-based enterprise project management software for managing complex projects, processes and resources.
While putting these key differences, we are analysing the advantages and value addition TIEMCHART can bring to your project. There are many advantages of MS Project that may not be addressed by TIEMCHART. We are putting this difference for an alternate solution and as a client you can make the choice if such address to any of the issues you might be facing.

Sophisticated and yet simple to operate
If you are looking for replacement, we have got you covered. MS Project is bloated with features that most people do not use. We bring together the essential features that you will require to manage a project. We are trying to keep the system simple and yet carry the most essential features that you will ever need.

Billing and Project Accounting:
Another great feature of TIEMCHART is the ability to track revenue and cost at each individual project or further down to the task level. With built in job costing system to account for cost on daily basis, it is also having billing module to carry out regular billing.

Integrate MS Project to TIEMCHART:
With the features such as importing project directly into TIEMCHART via excel import process, integrating from another system or software has become so much easier. If you are currently running some of your project in MS Project, we can easily integrate such project using excel import features. This saving you 100’s of hours to re-enter them in our system. And taking advantage of the added features of TIEMCHART

Advanced Gantt chart packed with Project monitoring decision:
At times you might be interest to know the available resources in terms of resource category, skills and its location. TIEMCHART resource management software enables such easy filter of your resource right from dashboard.
