Outsourcing your CAD projects is one of the best ways to free up your time while ensuring your tasks are completed by experts. However, if you’re working on a large project and/or hiring several freelancers at the same time, you’ll need to have a system to keep track of who’s doing what and ensure that deadlines are met. One of the best ways to do this is to use Microsoft Project.
This program was originally released in 1984. Since then, it has become the project management software of choice for many businesses and is now commonly used around the world. This isn’t really surprising since Microsoft Project provides tools that make it easy for users to set a budget for a project, determine how much resources are needed, and set deadlines for each task. It also allows users to set different access levels for each team member, ensuring that only authorized people can access areas with sensitive information.
Microsoft Project is available in both on-premises solutions and cloud-based solutions. On-premises solutions involve Project Standard and Project Professional; the former helps with managing tasks, costs, and schedules and comes with reporting and business intelligence. Project Professional has both of these features, along with timesheet submission, SharePoint task sync, collaboration with Skype for Business, and other tools. Cloud-based solutions, meanwhile, include Project Online Essentials, Project Online Professional, and Project Online Premium. All three differ in price and features, with Project Online Essentials offering the cheapest price and the most basic tools and Project Online Premium providing the highest number of features.
Microsoft Project is used in both SMEs and large corporations, and it’s incredibly useful in all kinds of projects. In particular, it’s important in CAD projects that are being worked on by several people at the same time. So, if you’re planning to hire designers, make sure they’re familiar with Microsoft Project services. This way, you’ll find it easy to trace task paths, track their progress, and ensure everything is submitted on time.
Fortunately, searching for a freelance Microsoft Project designer isn’t that difficult since you can easily find one here at Cad Crowd.
