Product Overview - ProjectSphere 

Connecting user-friendly task management to the project portfolio management functions of Project Server Online

Today, there’s a noticeable gap in project management solutions. On one end of the spectrum, there are simple, user-friendly task management tools that are not integrated into an overarching project management system. On the other end, there are larger-scale tools that support many project-management functions but don’t take the end user into account.

ProjectSphere combines the best of both worlds, with drag-and-drop task management that’s fully integrated into the project manager’s plan. End users can quickly and easily manage tasks using a graphical, user-friendly interface; while project managers can focus on resource planning, cost, portfolio planning and more.

SIMPLIFIED TIME TRACKING & REPORTING

ProjectSphere’s drag-and-drop interface makes it easier than ever for team members to enter and view time. And because ProjectSphere is built on the features of Project Server Online and Office 365, users can stay directly connected to updated project time allocations.

  • Easily view time allocated and remaining on the task
  • Enjoy visual cues that show your status at the task level

How it’s integrated into the project plan:

360-DEGREE PROJECT COLLABORATION

In a cross-functional workplace, it’s all about efficiency. Project teams must continue to plan, collaborate and communicate without interruption or missing a beat. Here’s how ProjectSphere helps both task users and project managers do that: 

  • Less learning curve: ProjectSphere uses the core capabilities of Office 365 in addition to features of a platform that you’re already familiar with, such as: Microsoft Project, SharePoint Sites, Document Libraries, Delve, Workflows, Power BI, Excel, and Search. 
  • Simplified external communication. User-friendly features allow you to collaborate with your partners, vendors and other external sources; or provide project communications and document sharing with your customers.

EASY AND SECURE TO IMPLEMENT, EASY TO ADOPT

ProjectSphere is designed for easy adoption – on both an enterprise level and across your team. Here’s why: 

For organizations 

  • Layered on top of Office 365
  • Can be added or removed from your existing environment with zero invasiveness or lost data
  • More secure - rather than transferring to another system, all data is securely kept within your own searchable ecosystem.

For users 

  • Easy-to-use interface, layered on top of Project Server data and SharePoint features 
  • Custom project site templates feature user-friendly designs that are fully integrated with ProjectSphere’s custom task cards and boards.
