Flexible for any business context

Due to the high flexibility of the TRACK software, the application supports a wide variety of company situations. With the TRACK tool from MSO, companies can specifically design their individual goals, strategies, projects and plans in their respective context and track them with regard to their chosen implementation method.

Strategic fields of action, cross-cutting issues and implementation orders can be broken down into subsidiaries, business units, regions, markets, assemblies, etc., for example, and planned and controlled by those responsible with projects, work packages, milestone plans and measures – with regard to their implementation.

On the basis of results already achieved and results still planned in relation to the respective target, the implementation status, progress or forecast of all “programs”, for example, can be precisely analyzed.

FAQs

The price depends on the specific needs of the company context.

The implementation process can take 5 days or 6 weeks, depending on the complexity and if the project specification is already clear. In addition, the duration depends on individual customization requirements. Further factors are the number of employees involved in the project and their roles, the possible data migration and whether the application is rented as a SaaS tool or hosted on-premise. SaaS technically takes 24 hours: you can start with SaaS and move at a different time.

The tool should be intuitive to use. Nevertheless, we offer training for administrators and users (for example, specifically according to user roles, for example: PMO, project management, sub-project management and project staff). Trainings are usually a suitable “vehicle” to increase motivation and acceptance for the benefits of a new software – and thus to guarantee a good start into a successful joint project management.

Track can provide individual project profiles with the specifically required data and information fields, e.g. for effect controlling(!) and supports different project management methods in one tool.

Structures are arbitrary and can be individually mapped and evaluated. Regardless of strategy, goal, organizational, project, product, market or other structural fields.

All project participants have views and evaluations of their respective responsible topics. The PMO can track all projects in one tool and provide comprehensive and company-specific reporting.
