Project Management is an IT Issue
Any project manager will tell you that there are countless issues that can get in the way of a successful implementation. To nobody’s surprise, business technology can aid project management by streamlining operations and making the entire process much easier for everyone involved. We’ll dig into the details about how project management software and value-based managed IT services can help you complete projects on-time and on-budget.
First, we’ll tackle how managed IT can provide value for your project completion efforts, and then we’ll dig into the details of how project management specifically can help.
Managed IT for Project Management
Imagine trying to work on a project, but you can’t get any work done because your technology solutions just keep experiencing hiccups and other inefficiencies. This is more common than you’d think. If an employee starts having trouble with Word right in the middle of a project that demands text, this could severely impede progress. The same could be said if your network access were to fail and you are no longer able to access important files and assets.
Managed IT helps companies stay focused on project management by keeping networks maintained and managed. This means that instead of worrying about whether or not you’ll be able to do your job, you’ll instead be able to just do the job. With a managed service provider like Ferrum Technology Services managing your IT from behind the scenes, you’ll be able to focus time and resources where they really matter—on initiatives to make your organization more money and improve its bottom line.
Project Management Software
Of course, project management is much more than just making sure your technology is working properly. There are countless moving parts in any implementation process, including the staff who make everything happen, the resources they need for the project, and information from clients or vendors that needs to be managed and shared throughout the project management team. Somehow, project managers have to connect all the dots and make sure the implementation goes off without a hitch, but this is easier said than done.
Project management software, which today often comes in the form of true collaboration apps, provides a single point of access for all of the resources needed to complete a project. They include a communication hub for employees and team members to stay connected about the many moving parts of a project, as well as project managers to see progress being made. This all helps to keep projects on-time and on-budget. Furthermore, this helps to make sure projects are handled properly the first time, as spending more time than necessary on a project can cut into your bottom line.
