Powerful Project Management Portal

Build your project portal with as much or as little processes for your business needs. Your SharePoint site with Dock can bring together all the items you need to manage projects into one central, collaborative location under the Projects tab. Now is the time to take advantage of this for your project management needs. 

 

Portfolio Dashboard

Utilize the straightforward dashboard that shows you how the project is doing with a summary of work, goals, project status, and so on. The Quick Launch can be personalized so the grouping and categorization mimics the project management processes that you use in your business. All the processes that your project will need can be built right in.

 


 

Advanced Reminder Alerts

Once you centralized your project information in your SharePoint site, we advise you to set up automated project processes, like changing the control process by utilizing built in SharePoint workflows. You can authorize alerts to automatically send out reminders to project stakeholders. This way, your team members can also view their upcoming tasks and be able to check them off as they go.

 


 

Data Aggregation for Projects

Project Management Central is a turnkey project management solution that can standardize project sites, permissions and navigation consistency throughout projects in the enterprise. Set up 'Task Lists' in SharePoint in combination to plan tasks, activities and milestones with dates, assignees and build a breakdown structure for any project you're working on with multiple employees. You can also include additional lists tailored to specific project processes to manage risks, issues, change requests and more. 

 


 

Resource Management

With the 'Project Statement' tool, you can include an overview of the project, description, and key dates. All your team members and stakeholders on your project can have the ability to refer to it so that they can understand the purpose of the project or to get a summary of the high-level project information. In addition, control documents through the library to store deliverable by authoring, version control, and approval workflows. Keep your documents stored with your company intranet ensures that every team member is working on the same up-to-date document.

 


 

Project Reporting

You can setup additional views for work completed, in-progress, overdue, and more. Communicate project status to senior executives and other stakeholders. The reports can include KPIs with red and green indicator buttons to quickly show the project status visually. Add columns with your own commentary on what has been achieved, major accomplishments, issues, and planned next steps. Group web parts or project processes into phases such as: initiate, plan, track and close. SharePoint will guide you and your team to express how the project should be managed.
