OMNITRACKER Project Management Center


Published on

The OMNITRACKER Project Management Center is based on Prince2 and PMI standards. It supports the full project lifecycle from project initiation to project planning, execution, monitoring and finally project closing. Related supported processes include documentation, time registration, travel expenditures registration, reporting and resource management.
Projects can be broken down in project phases, which can be broke down into activities. Activities can have sub-activities, predecessors and successors. Employees can register time entries on activities. Gantt charts provide easy insight in planning, including resource utilization levels. Automated, configurable escalations provide early warnings.
The out-of-the-box Project Management Center runs inside the OMNITRACKER platform and is integrated in many of the OMNITRACKER applications templates, including IT Service Management Center, Requirement Management Center and System Engineering Center, for release management and testing.
Of course it is possible for all our clients to make any change they want to the Project Management Center or to add additional tailor made processes.
