The marcom office at Ithaca College has been stymied for years now with too many project management systems: one that works well for print doesn't work well for the web team, one for the web team that works well for us, and one for all of IT that the IT people on the web team are pressured to use exclusively (but marcom web people are excluded from).
Although excellent systems for the intended creative work, none of these systems is the answer for managing our combined creative work.
Anyone on this forum using a system that combines print, web, and content production? We'd love to hear your recommendations -- and why they work for all of your creative. Thanks!
Joanne - did you ever get other suggestions for a solution? Our dept (marcomm) is also looking for a project mgmt solution for web and print, so I'd be interested to know what you've found out.
I'm afraid I didn't. Shortly after I posted this, our office had a couple other higher-level projects that diverted our attention from the project management solution, and I never pursued my research. (And I've since left my position with Ithaca College.)
I believe several people from IC are still on this list, so perhaps they can provide better updates. Try Bonny Griffith, Benjamin Costello, or Rachel Reuben.
Sorry I can't be of more help to you!
we are beginning an implementation of AtTask. While I would have liked to implement Microsoft Project for our team, this is a division wide implementation across platforms and AT is a cloud/SAS solution.
It has all the bells and whistles and an area for custom data, which then allows for custom reports. I will let you know how things proceed across our Web Communications department and also division-wide.
Keep us posted Scott, that is a nice looking product. Only complain I would have is it looks like pricing is in the $30/person per month. that's just not sustainable for 8-10 people for us.
We are using teamworkPM. We've been pleased with it so far. We also use a custom built asp.net application for the ticketing portion of the application. It allows us to enable a front end for people to make request and review the status of their requests. We tied that in via the API to the project Management product. There are some limitations on the traffic for the api that causes us some problems. But over all, it's pretty decent.
As for the other recommendations that were mentioned, do you like them?
