Project management software can do everything from help you keep your team together to mapping out whole strategies. PersonalPMO from Ahead Of Its Time offers a complete library of customizable project management templates, plans, status reports, and other essential tools and documents. It's a "Project Management Office" that is fully compatible with Microsoft Office 2000 and later. It can handle an unlimited number of projects across multiple organizations and involving numerous contacts.
PersonalPMO has a familiar Windows look, with file menus, including a Help file, and an icon-based toolbar providing full control of the program's considerable configuration options. The main display features a three-part window with tabbed access to individual projects, a tree-based main view, and a preview pane, a simple and logical layout that makes it easy to manage multiple templates and projects at once. You can use the supplied templates, customize them to suit your company, create new ones, or import existing templates and have them converted to PersonalPMO's format, an after-sales service priced according to needs. There's a full complement of features for managing personal and project time, personnel, meetings, accounts, and reports. The software's standout feature is an auto-complete function that fills in repetitive template fields, saving time and reducing entry errors. Sophisticated synchronization capabilities keep the project up to date.
The fully functional PersonalPMO is free to try for seven days; the latest release adds document management and versioning for non-proprietary document types. It installs desktop icons without asking and leaves folders behind when it's uninstalled.
