Project Management Software Recommendation?

by kimshuff / December 11, 2012 11:15 PM PST

Hello,

I am trying to find a very simple project management software that can track team members' progress on their current projects (about 7-8 members). I need each team member to be able to go in and edit throughout the process so a manager can see an overview. I would prefer it to not be cloud based, I realize this may create some limitations. Any suggestions? We do not want to use Microsoft Project.

Unfortunately, my boss doesn't want to use our current Excel spreadsheet to track projects any longer. She says people will get in there and mess up the spreadsheet. Excel was my vote as well!!

Then it's custom app time.

One of my old projects used a custom app to do PM. It was done and we all suffered with it so for now, when we do this it's the usual Excel with one person using Project.

Scheduling Manager by Thoughtful Systems

Scheduling Manager by Thoughtful Systems sounds like it fits your needs. Team members can track their current projects in the program, and each team member can edit the process so a manager can see it. When a team member makes edits in the program, their name and the time of the edit will be saved. It can work as cloud based or not. It is a one time purchase price, so you own the software once you purchase. The software is very easy to customize and their team can work with your companies needs.

See http://www.thoughtfulsystems.com/ or call 800-759-2532.
