Top 10 Reasons to NOT Implement SaaS Project Management Software


0 comments

Unlike enterprise project management systems that require everyone to have a doctorate or toy like spreadsheet solutions with few benefits over email, WorkOtter is the “just right” solutions for all but .01% of
companies.

OK – Drumroll Please. Our top 10 reasons why you shouldn’t waste your time considering WorkOtter for PPM:

  1. You were on a competitor’s website and noticed they had 17 resource leveling algorithms. 17!
  2. During a competitor’s demo you looked through all 12 tabs of information on a single task and were impressed by the hundreds of fields to fill out.
  3. Honestly, any workplan with under 2,000 tasks isn’t a “real” project.
  4. You like your PPM software like you like your remote controls. More Buttons = Better. Heck, the best PPM solution would be to take all the features from all the vendors and stuff them into one tool. Now THAT would be awesome!
  5. You are really not excited about doing any research and heard from Microsoft that their Enterprise Project Management solution is the way to go and you are just looking for other vendors to pad your proposal.
  6. You attended the full two weeks of
    Microsoft Project Server training and came back thinking “that
    was EASY!”
  7. You build the world’s
    most complex project spreadsheet and are sorry to give it up.
  8. Your executives track your movements via cameras so that they can avoid you telling them how badly they need a PPM solution.
  9. You have figured out it is a lot better to spend every year in committee looking for the perfect solution, than it is to take a chance and get something going quickly.
  10. Your CIO asks when your team will be done with project management (and continuous process improvement for that matter).

If you answered yes, well, WorkOtter is either too complex, too simple, or
your management doesn’t care enough for us to help you today. I am very sorry to be so direct but WorkOtter is not for
you.

Right, well, um, thank you so much again for your interest. We really appreciate it.

OK then, thank you again and best of luck with all of that.

Everyone else still here?
