We are today in a unique position where we have elaborated a project management environment allowing collaboration and communication between members in a modern and easy way. We do this through three main interconnectable areas: Project Management, Document Collaboration, and Communication. Projectplace is not about Social Media, it’s a part of Social Business. Obviously the two are connected to each other. Social media is about sharing experiences and giving feedback, and that’s exactly what we want in our professional life as well. Because it increases productivity, creates engagement and enables your team to work more goal orientated, when they can give feedback on ideas, document, meeting, plans, tasks, issues etc, to better manage their projects.
Let’s quickly look at what we offer through the three areas: Project Management provides Planning & work coordination, Project office support, Time & issue management, and Resource management. We’re very strong in document collaboration, sharing, reviews & version management, Drag ’n drop file management, MS Office & Desktop integration. Some of our clients get stuck here and only use document-sharing, which can get pretty expensive. There is sooo much more on offer when it comes to project management and our social communication tools. For true collaboration to work, you need good social communication tools, messaging, reporting & notifications, Web conferencing, Meeting management, Member & stakeholder management.
Project Management part of our collaboration tool helps you optimize your daily planning with tools such as kanban-inspired action boards and cards you can drag and drop to update the status of tasks worked on and finished as the work is progressing. Here you can also get a clear overview of your project timeline and workflows, manage resources and their time, and as a Project Manager you also have easy overview of project progress through Project Office Support.
People sending e-mails to each other. Plans are not updated. People are not updated. Different versions of documents are circling. Difficulties to find accurate information, more importantly to GIVE accurate information. With Projectplace, you gather all information in one place. So people can collaborate around this in an efficient way. Wherever they are. On any online device. Involve your stakeholder here to get perfect alignment. Make a change in your project and your customers or board members can see and react on it. With MS integration, you can easily drag and drop files between projects and desktop. You also have Plug-ins for general integrated file editing from any PC or Mac application, and for desktop shortcuts, drag ´n drop file and folder uploading/downloading.
In summary, with our communications features you can for example manage meetings, do messaging, reporting & notifications, web conferencing, meeting management, member & stakeholder management. All this with Projectplace social tools that encourage collaboration between project stakeholders for best results.
As you can see, social features are visible throughout the entire tool. A whole spectra of features is available on your mobile devices. All this securely stored in the cloud, so that you can simply pay as you go and get free support. Finally, Projectplace does not only create value by improving collaboration in projects. The delivery form in itself also improves efficiency and reduces cost of usage. Projectplace is distributed as a Cloud Service which means big savings in time and costs. Often the largest cost when implementing a new service are the hidden costs such as training and maintenance that you don’t see on the price tag. With Projectplace, you pay for what you use and there is no hardware or software installation or any other upfront investment in time and money. Maintenance costs, software updates and other cost-drivers that you typically get with a SW implementation are non-existing when you use a cloud service. And since Projectplace is a standardized online service used through any web browser, you can literally have the whole organisation up and running in minutes. The system maintains state-of the art security standards with real-time data mirroring and continuous backup. As one of the first IT-companies in Sweden Projectplace has been awarded the ISO 27001 certification for information security. ISO 27001 is an international standard for information security that includes proactive management as well as the evaluation and addressing of risks.
