Microsoft Project 2007 Standard - Open License Features
Quality Features That Remain Highly Functional
The reason Microsoft Project 2007 Standard remains such a popular and effective product comes down to quality. These features were built to be helpful in 2007, and they were built to last. Scroll through these features and see just how fundamental they are and how well they work.
Here are some of the most important features you’ll find in Microsoft Project 2007 Standard:
Keep costs down, stay within a budget, and meet deadlines: This gets at the heart of what every business is looking for when they purchase Microsoft Project. Project, at a fundamental level, is all about saving your business money and streamlining your process, so milestones and deadlines are always met. One of the most useful tools provided in Microsoft Project 2007 Standard is Task Drivers, which lets you trace where your resource constraints are coming from. You can then free those up and remove delays and significant cost issues.
Get right to improving your projects with templates: One of the most significant time-wasting elements that come with some project management software is the need to set up from square one every part of your project. Avoid all that business work with Microsoft Project 2007 Standard, where templates can be employed to jump ahead and get right to your management solutions.
Play out potential choices to make the best decision: While the above features may feel a little basic, it’s here, with the what-if scenarios, that Microsoft Project 2007 Standard pays for itself.
You can play out different scenarios and see what your choices lead to. These potential choices can be quickly done, undone, and redone to see exactly how they play out and what benefits or risks you’ll be taking in implementing those decisions. It’s an incredible resource to make sure you always make the best choices in your management.
Keep track of the changes that result from your decisions: Another major feature that helps guide project managers is Change Highlights. This allows you to see all the changes that come about because of your choices. Whether used in what-if scenarios or tough decisions, this will enable you to keep track of what is changing and how you need to make adjustments in the future. You’ll be able to better keep tabs on all the elements of your project, without making assumptions that something remains in place when it might have changed.
Discover new ways to share and relate your project progress: Project management can only go so far when the managers are the only ones with access to the information found within the program. That’s why Microsoft Project 2007 Standard comes with a whole set of report options and report templates that can be used to send reports out to all those who need to say informed.
