Many companies attempt to manage projects using desktop software applications like Microsoft Project and Microsoft Excel. The main challenge with using desktop software to manage projects is that these applications were not designed for collaboration among several parties. At worst, the file is shared by e-mailing the file to all parties on the team. At best, the file may be posted on a network or on an extranet and shared from there.

A project management solution that is Web-based can help solve these issues by allowing project managers and their team members to access project information from any browser in the world, at any time of the day or night. The project information is centralized in one database and posted in real-time, assuring that all project members and executive management can view the most recent information about the project.

Cynthia West, Vice President at Project Insight, and her team speak with project managers, directors of operations, vice presidents of professional services, chief financial officers, and other project team members every day. They hear familiar stories repeatedly and have identified some trends, or commonalities, that regularly affect project management success. This slideshow highlights five of the most common project management challenges identified by Project Insight and ways Web-based project management software may be able to help.
