“We believe project management should be accessible to everyone, so we created a collaborative solution that is quick to implement, easy-to-use, and instantly connects the team - using shared work spaces project oriented web parts and an intuitive, elegant interface,” said John Milan, CEO, TeamDirection and Microsoft SharePoint MVP. “The addition of Bamboo’s Project Portfolio Dashboard addresses the number one request from our clients to be able to provide at-a-glance views of project status for stakeholders and upper management.”
IntelliGantt products are designed for organizations that have outgrown spreadsheets but do not need a full-fledged enterprise project management solution. The IntelliGantt Add-In for Microsoft Project enables SharePoint users to publish and synchronize project changes outside of Microsoft Project. Team members can use SharePoint to update and complete tasks assigned to them with a web browser or with Microsoft Outlook 2007. With over 70 custom fields, users can choose what information is published to SharePoint and how that information is displayed. Project summaries can be reported directly to and from SharePoint project lists or to Bamboo’s SharePoint Project Portfolio Dashboard, for at-a-glance views of project status and milestones.
By adding Bamboo’s SharePoint Project Portfolio Dashboard, Project Managers are able to take their project management one step further – significantly reducing the time it takes to compile project data and communicate status to stakeholders and upper management. It provides users with a single view of the progress, health and risk level of projects in a client’s entire project portfolio. Project Managers can communicate the status, cost and budget for each project using a configurable red/yellow/green indicator list, issues meter, bar or pie chart and Gantt view widgets. Users can choose to use one or all of the widgets to display project data in the dashboard, as well as customize the layout for how the project data is displayed.
“We are excited to work with vendors such as TeamDirection who develop smart solutions for small to medium size businesses,” said Michael Tanner, CEO, Bamboo Solutions Corporation. “With TeamDirection, we continue our mission of extending Microsoft’s SharePoint platform with software that helps customers implement project management solutions faster and at lower overall cost.”
Because it installs on the local desktop, the IntelliGantt Add-In for Microsoft Project works with hosted SharePoint solutions and keeps track of changes made offline, merging updates when users are back online. The IntelliGantt Add-in for Microsoft Project with Bamboo’s SharePoint Project Portfolio Dashboard works with both WSS 3.0, or MOSS 2007.
