At Project Widgets, we are experts at tailoring Microsoft Project to work the way you want to manage projects.
Built into Microsoft Project is a robust development environment called "Visual Basic for Applications" (VBA). With VBA, it's easy to incorporate your process into the tool and literally lead your users through the steps they need to know to be successful.
Depending on your needs, Project Widgets can also create more sophisticated add-ons to Microsoft Project using Microsoft's latest .NET development technologies. We also can customize Project Web Access and Sharepoint to further enhance your project management processes.
Here are a few examples of what we can do for you:
- Have you ever had the need to open up every one of your organization's projects so that you can perform a common function such as re-saving the baseline, adding new tasks, or changing a field value? With our widgets, we can automate these kinds of tedious, repetitive actions across multiple projects so that all you have to do is click a button and the widget does all the work for you (while you go to lunch!).
- Everyone has to write a status report, and we usually find ourselves re-keying information that already exists in one of our Project schedules. Wouldn't it be great if we could somehow click a button and have a tool that automatically creates our status report for us using the information that already exists in our project? At Project Widgets, we can make this happen! We can create an automated project status report in Microsoft Word and professional quality, presentation-ready PowerPoint slides with data from your project schedules.
- In Microsoft Project, the left pane on the screen is referred to as the Project Guide. The guide is designed to lead you through the steps required to manage your project. At Project Widgets, we can customize the project guide to incorporate your organization's project management processes, such as initiating a new project, following project stage gates, and closing out a project.
