Project Management Software | Comidor

Comidor Project Management Software, based on PMI and PRINCE2 methodology, enables teams to manage and automate easily and fast their work.

What is Project Management

A project is the act of planning and controlling the work needed to carry out an objective or achieve a result within a certain time frame.

Project Management, then, is the process that is used to coordinate, organize, and control resources in order to meet the needs of a project. Project management software helps organizations in managing projects efficiently, by providing them with tools that will help them to stay on track and manage their resources. In other words, business teams utilize PM software to manage projects from inception to completion. In addition to that, managing projects involves identifying, analyzing, and solving potential problems before they arise.

Increased efficiency

It is proved that Project Management enables businesses avoid potential pitfalls like scope creep or insufficient communication within team members.

Improved productivity

Project Management software helps you be more productive by saving time on repetitive tasks, like sending emails.

Effective resource management

Project Management software offers resource management and allocation tools that allow Project Managers to keep a project on schedule, plan and manage costs, scope and resources.

Better quality of work

Proper Project Management leads to improved team performance, and thus, to better quality of work because it helps teams know what they are doing and how they are going to do it.

Clear and transparent overview of work

Project Management tools provide you with valuable insights into how your projects are progressing over time – helping you make strategic decisions.

Initiate & Plan

Use Comidor Project Management (PM) Software to develop the PM plan by estimating activity duration, sequencing activities, determining work packages and connecting them with pre-built workflows.

Execute

Optimize resource management, create outstanding products and services, as they are outlined in the project management plan, while managing the stakeholders’ expectations.

Automate

Start from scratch, or associate a workflow pattern with a project with pre-defined phases, to automate project management tasks. Use project automation to automatically track resource loads and receive alerts.

Monitor & Close

Monitor the project progress and performance through dashboards with real-time analytics, track the project milestones, and use the Burndown chart to get an instant view of work hours. Let your managers be aware of their personnel workload and easily track and manage the resource availability.

Innovative “echo” Model

  • Project Manager (PM): selects the participating groups and designs the Gantt chart. The Project Manager is responsible for setting the workload for the team, as well as for estimating the expected costs, and finally for assigning each work package to its associated manager. 
  • Team Leader (TL): selects the appropriate personnel and assigns the relevant tasks to them. 
  • Team members (TM): accept the tasks assigned to them, building their own sub-tasks. The actual budget and the exact workload are constantly re-calculated for the purpose of new updates inclusion.

What is Project Automation

Project Management is a never-ending process. It takes up a lot of time and resources to manage projects.  

Project Automation is a subset of Business Process Automation and aims to enhance project efficiency, effectiveness, and quality. Specifically, it is the process of automating tasks that are typically done manually during the project management lifecycle. These tasks usually include project planning, resource allocation, and tracking. 

With Project Automation, managers delegate tasks and coordinate work on projects that can be either small-scale or
large-scale. 

The process of implementing Project Automation can be broken down into three phases: 

  • Discovery: Gathering the project data, what needs to be automated, and how much time it will take to implement the changes 
  • Implementation: The actual process of mapping the project and automating it in a way that is manageable for both project managers and employees 
  • Evaluation: Evaluating how well the Project Automation has been implemented and whether or not it should be expanded.
