Tailored cloud project management solutions

Discover SharePoint project management solutions that can cover everything from single requirements to multi-project, multi-phase deliveries.

Cloud-based and accessible, SharePoint is a flexible solution for busy project managers. Plus as it’s available through many common Microsoft 365 licences, a project management system in SharePoint can be far more cost-effective than dedicated software.

Advanced Project Management Features

Beyond team sites, we also configure SharePoint as a project tracking tool specifically for busy project managers.

Projects can be linked to Microsoft Teams allowing easy and trackable communication around projects, plus enabling access on the go.

SharePoint can also feature Gantt charts, detailing the progress of various streams of a project – or even multiple projects – with automatic updating as tasks move through to completion. And your solution can be fully branded.
