What is our primary use case?
ProjectCenter was implemented within the organization to improve performance in the management of architectural and engineering projects in a comprehensive and planned manner. It is capable of managing the times of each activity scheduled with professional management methods that directly influence the improvement of the work environment of the teams and groups of each project.
How has it helped my organization?
This solution has tools and resources for the organization and planning of construction, architecture and engineering projects. It has allowed me to control and manage the work times at each stage of the project and monitor the progress of the members of each team during the processes of design and production of the work. It is very useful for providing all of the necessary information for the project, and also improves the internal decision making.
What is most valuable?
Undoubtedly, its most valuable and outstanding features are its document management, which allows you to manage all of the files and technical documents by folders, with options to view plans and include comments on them.
Its management reports tool is efficient and useful to have a specific control from the development of each activity and task scheduled.
The directory and calendar work correctly to organize work times.
It has resources to establish workflows that are very important for the administration of work teams and their respective assignment of activities and tasks within the deadlines established in the project calendar.
What needs improvement?
The graphic aspect leaves a lot to be desired. It has a visual limitation since it does not have a dynamic and creative operation that links the user with the interface and workspace. Furthermore, it has a very rigid development, which limits the editing and customization options within the platform.
For the next version, it would be very useful to expand the options and resources of direct communication via chat and messaging with the possibility of sharing and exchanging project files in a simple way, and with a line of contacts indicating the work teams.
For how long have I used the solution?
We have been using this solution for three years.
