Cardwells new project connector is live
CLEVELAND (2/7/11)--Strategy execution consultant and software developer Cardwell said its MS Project Connector is now live in beta testing as part of Connections Online IQ. Going live with MS Project Connector means the “connector” syncs MS Project to department and enterprise projects within the Connections Online (COL) software. COL clients can subscribe to the IQ service, which allows them to gain access to the MS Project Connector for seamlessly synching projects. Once a project is created in either Connections Online or MS Project, the Project Connector syncs with the new and updated project data, said Karla Norwood, Cardwell president. Through MS Project connector, the project can sync back and forth between both applications each time the project is updated in MS Project. This allows project teams to update their own project work through the COL interface. The Project Manager can manage any project by pulling it into MS Project to update the data and then re-sync them. All updates are reflected in both “directions”--from MS Project using the connector and also from COL. “Many information technology departments and project management offices are used to the sophistication of managing a project using MS Project, but typically only a few people use it because it is not very user friendly and it’s complicated,” Norwood said. “So if projects are run from MS Project, it is a lot of work for the project owners to keep it updated because they have to rely on e-mails and phone calls to keep the project tasks current that other people are accountable for completing,” she continued. “MS Project Connector, contrarily, makes things easier not only for updating, but also for reviewing status. Executives and project stakeholders can view the current status of the project ‘just in time,’ since the project is available online 24/7.”
