  1. 1. ValleySpeak Project Server Cost Advantages The Affordable Way to Give Your Team Access to Microsoft Project Schedule Details. Introduction Using Microsoft Project in a group environment is a challenge. Every user must install the software onto his/her machine in order to view or change the schedule details, which becomes very expensive. Additionally, Microsoft Project is a complicated application that requires training in order to install and use efficiently. Some teams try to circumvent this by sending around Excel files to gather status updates or sending PDF files to communicate the schedule. These approaches have their own unique challenges: the project manager ends up having to integrate multiple changes back into the schedule manually and the team members are often unsure about whether they are using the most current version of the project schedule. The other option is to purchase and install the Microsoft Project Server software. Microsoft Project Server is complicated to install and use, expensive and generally too high end for many workgroups. Though feature rich, it is an enterprise software product that requires a large commitment in order to implement appropriately. All of these approaches have downsides and limitations. Fortunately,there is a much better solution: ValleySpeak Project Server. The ValleySpeak Project Server provides an affordable and easy way to use web-based access so that each team member can view and update schedules in real time. With easy installation and minimal training required, it is an ideal solution for workgroups that want to share Microsoft project schedule status with minimum hassle. ValleySpeak Project Server - An Affordable Alternative To Licensing Microsoft Project For Each Team Member Installing Microsoft Project onto the machine of each team member can be quite expensive.
