dotProject – An online project management tool

  1. 1. dotProject – An online project management tool Maintaining clear lines of communication with Hardent’s clientele is made easier and more efficient by the use of dotProject, an on-line Project Management tool When faced with the prospect of entrusting a critical design to an outside contractor, some companies are hesitant, viewing this as adding additional risk to the project. Objections to using outside help include “We don’t have any visibility into what the sub is doing”, or “if anything goes wrong, we won’t know about it until it’s too late”. The key point here is the assurance of quality – how can the buyer of electronic design services be assured that his or her project is on track when the work is being done offsite? For several years now, Hardent has been providing electronic design services to a geographically diverse client base. In the case of many of our clients, this means that we use the Internet to solicit their business, gather project requirements, negotiate contract terms and transmit project deliverables. We also offer them the use of a web- based project management service which allows them to keep informed as to the status of their project at any time.
  2. 2. The use of an open-source project management tool allows us to manage tasks, schedules, documentation, notes, reports, and any other relevant project information. Providing online access to customers allows us to provide them with a high level of visibility into the progress of their project. At any time, they can use a web browser to view design files, including schematics, parts lists and project schedules. This is invaluable when you when management is requesting a project status, or when planning upcoming work. Having an online link to the design team also allows changes to be communicated to the designers immediately – it’s almost as if they were in the same organization. In fact, that is one of our goals – to appear as if we are part of your organization, whenever and for however long you require our services. When unexpected circumstances necessitate additional resources to finish a critical component of an important project, Hardent engineers are ready to pitch in to finish the work.
