What Makes WorkOtter the Best Engineering Project Management Software for You?
The top reasons our customers tell us WorkOtter is one of the most popular engineering project portfolio management software programs:
CLOUD-BASED ENGINEERING PROJECT MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE
WorkOtter lets you run your engineering projects on our private cloud, giving you anytime, anywhere access, without the need to:
- Purchase Servers
- Install Software
- Manage Patches and Upgrades
- Configure Networks
We have a 99.999% up-time guarantee and are continuously monitoring and updating our cloud to keep your engineering projects running. Check out why WorkOtter is one of the most popular project management software programs available.
WorkOtter SaaS project management software has class leading issue, risk, change, action, and support items as well as integrated workplan scheduling. Regardless no one wants to setup every project from scratch. WorkOtter SaaS solutions for small business allow you to create project templates directly (or as a copy of a past successful project). The templates can contain any of the following for ease of reuse:
- Workplan (including duration, work, dependencies, and assignments)
- Action items
- Generic Roles (and proficiencies)
- Team members (and their roles on this project)
Unlike other solutions that limit your templates to just workplan items, WorkOtter SaaS project management software allows much more complete capability and with the “copy” feature it’s easy to setup different templates for specific scenarios. This saves you time and allows you to continuously improve by updating the templates for future projects. Small business gets SaaS business software without the EPM cost.
FLEXIBLE FORECASTING BY PROJECT
Your resource management forecasts are worthless unless everyone participates. Where other PPM solutions expect every project to have a workplan, WorkOtter allows a more flexible project by project forecasting including:
- Team Forecasts (Dates and % of Time Allocated is All You Enter)
- Resource Plan Forecasts(Fill out a spreadsheet with hours per week for each role you need)
- Workplan Forecasts (Microsoft Project or WorkOtter HTML5 Scheduled Plans)
- Team/Workplan Hybrid (Set % of each team member but replace if workplan forecasts exist that week)
No other engineering project resource management software accommodates such flexible project by project forecasting, even allowing you to switch between settings (for example, setup a team forecast and switch to workplan once you have one to upload). WorkOtter is a resource management solution even the most project adverse managers can get behind.
FLEXIBLE, EASY TO USE INTERFACE
For every PM that loves Microsoft Project, others quickly become frustrated and lose productivity. WorkOtter allows you to use a web-based “MSP like” light HTML5 project planner. Start with a template, import a MSP plan, or create it from scratch. Most loved features include:
- Drop/drag to move work, create dependencies, and update work percent complete
- One click chats, documents, baseline, EVM, and CPM
- Inline edit on the grid side
- Setup projects as Agile, Scrum, Waterfall, or Custom work types and hierarchy
- Expand, collapse, and adjust the interface to match your work style
All this (and more) in a “desktop like” experience with ribbon bars, context menus (right click), and features you would expect in a system infinitely more expensive than WorkOtter.
Every WorkOtter Account Includes (No Extra Charge)
WorkOtter is hosted in a top tier, all steel frame, secure building. It is one of the largest facilities in the central United States. We designed our own cloud once we realized that public commercial clouds were slower, less secure, and more susceptible to performance issues.
