PlanTogether links to MS Project, allowing the Project Plan to be ‘imported’ into PlanTogether. PlanTogether improves personal access to the project plan by creating an easy to navigate multi-layered and searchable Gantt chart but it also logs the data created by the activities. The project plan becomes the project log. The plan dictates the tasks, and records the result. PlanTogether is collaborative software, designed for project teams.

Advanced Resource Analytics -
MS Project Automation

QC Project (software) links with MS Project, then AUTOMATICALLY makes corrections.
QC Project’s unique capability to AUTO FIX can save the Project Manager many hours versus manually fixing errors.
Its calculation-intensive analytics allow it to identify (and fix) special errors that aren’t easily identifiable, including:
(a) calculation errors (b) loop-links (c) link fragments (d) out-of-sequence tasks
Manually identifying these particular types of errors is ridiculously (and needlessly) time-consuming.
QC Project enables project plans to be best-practice & trouble-free. Also, the need for expensive training is dramatically reduced.
It is a powerful time-saver, and best-practices trainer for MS Project users.


ProjectCommunicator is a companion product for Microsoft Project. It is designed to present tasks from Microsoft Project in much friendlier views that can be organized and sorted using attributes of the tasks rather simply using the rigid hierarchy you get in Microsoft Project. This software also saves the history of date changes you make in Microsoft Project and allows you to save comments on the progress of each task.
Tap on the Shoulder Software

Tap on the Shoulder is an automatic task reminder system that answers the two questions team members always have: What do I have to do? When do I have to do it? Just before each task is about to start or end, Tap on the Shoulder reads the schedule information in Project and sends a customized email to the responsible team member, noting the task name and all the relevant dates. This Microsoft Project add-in can be used even when team members don't have access to the Project schedule. A demo version is free for the first month.
