Microsoft's Office suite remains a core tool for businesses around the world, but its project management offering is perhaps less well-known.
Microsoft Project covers all the basic tools you'd expect. Time and task management allows users to enter time sheets, create to do lists, and assign tasks to other team members, while teams can also use a central collaboration hub to upload files and update members on project progress. Risks and issues can also be added to tasks, so any potential roadblocks in your project can be easily seen from the get go.
It also has a strong resource management tool – you can monitor labour, materials, meeting rooms, and more, as well as assigning cost to different resources. These functions may be useful for team leaders wishing to see which resources are being under-used or over-stretched.
As you might expect, Microsoft Project also has integration with the full Office 365 suite – so if you already use these for work you’ll have no problem uploading or sharing files.
Pricing starts at £7.50 per user per month; more expensive levels cost £22.60 per user per month or £41.50 per user per month. Support is offered via phone, email, and live chat.
