“…Starting in October 2009, we set up two very critical projects to be managed through Easy Projects .NET
The shorter of the two was successfully completed on schedule, and taught us a number of very important lessons
concerning our campaign management and the every-day utilization of project management software.
As of January 2010, we will be completely managing all of our campaigning activities through Easy Projects .NET…” Read Case Study

Excerpt from the PM Network Magazine (published by Project Management Institute):
“Ramesh Rajasundram and his team of data analysts at ICOM Information & Communications LP were overwhelmed. They were facing a barrage of 7,500 project requests a year coming in from six of the company’s departments. The main culprit was a project request setup that required several steps just to delegate a single task. Easy Projects has helped the company streamline the project tracking process and monitor expenditures by departments. Instead of devoting so much time to project reporting and billing, Mr. Rajasundram can now focus on project planning. ICOM reports the software has saved it nearly $60,000 in annual labor and materials costs and has also improved productivity without overextending the team. “No one idles, and no one is swamped,” says Mr. Rajasundram. “Everyone knows what they are doing today and what they are doing tomorrow.” - PM Network Magazine May 2009
“Easy Projects is a simple to use but powerful tool for tracking projects of all types. I’m tracking Software Development projects, but EP could be used equally well for all types of projects. The web interface is the key. My development team can see their outstanding tasks, log time, receive notifications, and raise project requests and bugs from any computer connected to our intranet.
EP comes with several reports built-in, but we’ve also created a Business Objects Universe and some BO reports that provide enhanced project tracking. I use these to report back to my Project Director. Any B.I. tool could be used, because the underlying database is simple to understand. it’s also open, ours is stored in Microsoft SQL Server, or you can use Microsoft Access.
I’ve also found EP’s support desk very responsive. I’d recommend EP to project managers who want a low cost project management tool that isn’t over-engineering with lots of complex options.”

Until this past year we had relied on Microsoft Project for 100% of our project management needs.
It was becoming obvious as our project grew that the current system was not a cost effective or productive solution.
It was expensive to license, resource intensive, and difficult if not impossible for most of our users to utilize in an effective, time efficient manner.
Easy Projects has been an easy decision for us. We’re spending a quarter of the time and money we needed to invest in our prior systems and we’re seeing twice the results.
We no longer need a stand alone server just to run the system like we did with our MS project server. EasyProjects requires little in resources and is a breeze to install on any existing web server.
Additionally we no longer have to spend large amounts of time training our users. The interface is intuitive and easy to use. We’re spending far more time now working on our projects and less time entering information into the tracking system.”
