Work confidently with a powerful project management tools

By All Posts, Cloud, Managed Services, Office 365, Productivity, SharePoint, Teams

Traditionally delivering projects in the Software Consulting world has always been focused on using Project Management tools like Microsoft Project and Project Management Systems. However, with resources and project teams being remote and scattered across many locations and time zones, these traditional tools haven’t really lent themselves to the versatility of agile software project delivery methodology.

At Imaginet, we are a Microsoft Gold Partner, so can we utilize all the advantages of Microsoft 365 Tools and its capabilities. We have overhauled our Project Delivery Process with the vision to exceed our clients’ experience with us, but also create an organization-wide delivery consistency for all our Consulting resources to follow with ease to support our clients. We have achieved this using Microsoft 365, PowerAutomate and Planner.
