The Excel list previously used to manage a large number of IT projects could no longer meet the requirements and was prone to errors. As the company grew, the project and portfolio management (PPM) had to become more efficient and, of course, enable better reporting to management. What was needed was a tool that was cloud-based, modular, expandable and therefore future-proof. In addition, it should integrate into the existing Microsoft system landscape in the best possible way.
The TPG ProjectPowerPack product is built on the Microsoft Power Platform and uses Microsoft Project for the Web scheduling as its core. With Power Apps, Power Automate and Power BI, the application uses the latest Microsoft technology and is highly future-proof. The full integration of Microsoft Teams allows new users to get started quickly and complete their tasks in a familiar software environment. Due to the subscription model, the costs remain transparent.
The PPM application grows with the demands placed on it: Starting with a basic configuration that includes only the essential project management disciplines, it can be successively expanded with new functionalities as required. It can be used both by employees and by external project participants. Its usability ensures a high level of acceptance. Comprehensive reporting improves portfolio control and increases transparency for top management.
“With the TPG ProjectPowerPack, we have managed to implement a user-friendly solution to actively support project managers in planning, recording and documenting their projects. In addition, the solution integrates perfectly into our Microsoft landscape and also provides all functions centrally in one place via Microsoft Teams.”
