PPM - Project Portfolio Manager
                             
The PPM solves the vexing problem of managing a slew of projects without the overhead of a long learning curve associated with other project portfolio management software programs. The software automatically recognizes the user from the Windows network login, and provides read-only or read-write access to different program features based on the user's individual settings.
Key Features:
The standard Excel Ribbons are replaced with a custom ribbon, providing the users with command specific to the PPM.
PPM subscribes to the standard AutoSoft color protocols. A yellow cell with a red font is designated for user input.
True Multi-user; many users can simultaneously enter data. Microsoft Access, SQL Server, or Web-Based Database back end.
Vanilla Microsoft Excel/VBA platform, no other licensing or third party software.
Multiple levels of security from read-only access, through editing of assigned projects to total program control.
Automatic backups and archiving of data.
Activity log.
Integrated Help.
Integrated Time Tracking capabilities.
If the optional TransMaster module is used, tracking of cash flow estimates and actuals down to the purchase order line level and invoice line level is possible.
A Microsoft Project-like scheduling screen, where changes in an event automatically affect all subsequent events.
A Plethora of reporting options.
Upon startup, the User is greeted with the HOME screen:
 
                             
                               
The HOME screen provides a number of "One-Click" reports as well as easy navigation to the rest of the program.
The User can then quickly navigate the Projects screen where a list of all projects are presented. The default listing shows only those projects assigned to the current user, but all projects can be displayed if so desired.
 
                             
                               
A simple "Double Click" on a project brings up the Project GENERAL screen:
 
 
The Schedule Screen mimics the functionality of Microsoft Project without the overhead of learning another software package. One can schedule as little as one Milestone or as many as 18.
 
 
 
The Resource Screen allows the Project Manager to assign resources to each project:
 
 
And to check on an allocation on any resource, a simple click "pivots" over to see what projects have been assigned to the selected resource. The Project Manager can then quickly and easily balance resources to "fill everyone's plate" without overflowing it. In this example, Harry Smith is overscheduled for the week of 10/06/13, snf hsd 8 hour available during the week of 11/17/13. Note the color gives instant feedback. Also note the color bands telling the user what stage each project is in each week.
