benefits of ajera for Project Management
COMPREHENSIVE TOOLS TO LEAD PROJECTS FROM START TO FINISH
Ajera provides cost forecasting, tracking and reporting to deliver actionable feedback to project managers. Innovative features, such as Project Snapshot and Earned Value Analysis (EVA) reporting, provide information in an easy-to-digest format that provides additional insight to project managers. The Project Snapshot report is a real-time report that shows critical information about a particular project including budget, time billed and work in progress. Drilling down from the snapshot shows the timesheet detail that has gone into that project and can provide quick validation that time is being recorded correctly.
Resource management and project scheduling are critical tasks for keeping utilization high and forecasting future staffing requirements. Those tasks can prove to be very time consuming for firms using multiple spreadsheets or a cumbersome software program. Ajera delivers fully integrated employee and project scheduling tools that enable managers to edit and analyze the information they need quickly, easily and in one place.
