Services Ease Project Management
Review: Hosted applications provide the tools needed to manage complex projects.Hosted applications from AtTask and eProj-ect allow organizations to more effectively manage projectswithout having to manage desktop and server applications. Both AtTasks AtTask 4.02 and eProjects eProject PPM (Project Portfolio Management) 6, priced at $395 and $495 per user per year, respectively, were updated in September. AtTask is more of a group project and portfolio management application, with a prebuilt tool set particularly well-suited for IT management applications and professional services organizations. AtTask 4.02 is available as both a hosted service (as eWeek Labs tested it) and an on-premises application. eProject PPM 6 is a broader project and portfolio management system that is highly customizable and well-suited to large organizations with multiple projects.
During tests, both products provided the tools necessary to create and manage complex projects. We liked the simpler user interface of AtTask, which is more approachable for novice users. eProjects more complex interface is powerful, but it may be intimidating to users with less experience with project management applications.
