Project Management

As a Project Manager you typically handle multiple projects simultaneously, each with its own deadlines and deliverables. Balancing and prioritising these projects can be a juggling act, requiring effective time management and organisational skills. Project managers must ensure that projects stay on track and meet client expectations while managing limited resources and overlapping timelines.

Ever stand on top of a hill that gives you a 360° panoramic view? There’s nothing quite like it.

 

And the same can be said about our Project Dashboard.

Job Project Dashboard

The Project Dashboard is logically divided into 3 sections:

  • Budget
    Track how your project is performing against what was agreed upon with your client, as well as key KPI’s such as Net Margin and Gross Margin.

     

  • Scheduling
    Magnetic will predict if you are going to over-, or underservice on the project. Through key metrics such as Estimate to Complete and Estimate at Complete, Magentic will help you understand if your project is going to be on, or off track. Effectively allowing you to be proactive instead of reactive.

  • Financials
    Understand your projects’ financial performance through key financial indicators such as Actual Net/Gross Margin, un-billable work and supplier purchases.
