Use the Gantt charts in Project Manager to plan, co-ordinate and track specific tasks in your projects. Gantt charts are available for project tasks to compliment list views and offer views by both task and task owners. Easily see progress of each task, due dates and manage the tasks directly from the Gantt views using definable date periods and full screen options.
Project Manager provides out of the box metrics on project costs, risks and resources. Compliment this by creating your own project measures, widgets and role-based dashboards, roll up multiple dashboards into slideshows for displaying on plasma screens around the office, or create more detailed reports (PDF, CSV, XLS, XLSX), and schedule their distribution to project stakeholders and other interested parties in Document Manager where periodic versions of the reports can be reviewed, collaborated on and even accessed from the native mobile app.
With Service Manager also installed, raise new projects, add stakeholders, costs and milestones from within business processes supporting your requests in Service Manager using Hornbills Integration Bridge (iBridge). Before automating the creation of the project and passing in project variables or invoking pre-defined project templates, allow project requests to be raised via SelfService and manage the business authorization of the project in Service Manager.
Relate Changes, Releases, Service Requests, Services and Configuration Items to your projects.
Attribute project stakeholders hourly rates, allow them to be assigned project tasks and then record all resource time against tasks, using out of the box metrics to manage individual resource performance, contributions and costs on each project.
Define, manage and mitigate project risks. Use the Risk Matrix to govern and control risks consistently across all projects in the portfolio using both impact and probability logic. Visualize individual project risks, and common risks across projects in your portfolio.
