Benefits of Deltek Project Information Management for Project Management
DELIVER PROJECTS ON TIME AND WITHIN BUDGET
One of the biggest challenges project managers face is juggling competing priorities. You have a lot on your plate and expectations are high, so it can be very frustrating when internal processes and communications breakdowns impede collaboration and slow team progress. It’s common for information silos to exist within teams, which can have a detrimental impact, especially if someone leaves and you realise critical data is trapped in their inbox. As a project manager, a disconnected team is a huge concern because it can result in activities that waste billable time and drag down firm-wide utilisation.
You need tools that can help you overcome these obstacles and more. Deltek Project Information Management provides you with a central hub for sharing all information across the team. It enables effective collaboration, increasing team efficiency and ridding you of the administrative and data management tasks that are demanding hours of your time each day. With that weight off your shoulders and time back on your calendar, you can accomplish your goals and be successful—ensuring client satisfaction by delivering projects on time and within budget.
Projects are a team effort that require a high level of commitment and coordination. Keeping contributors connected and in sync with each other can be challenging, but it is essential for successful project delivery. Project managers need a solution that can streamline file sharing and promote open communication across the team and firm-wide. Deltek Project Information Management can help meet these objectives with features that include:
