Smashing Ideas: Digital Agency Uses Hosted Solution to Improve Project and Resource Management
Smashing Ideas typically has 50 to 70 projects active at a time. For many years, the company managed projects using Microsoft Project 2002. The company was generally happy with the solution. But it encountered occasional stability problems with the aging software, especially for employees who develop iPhone and Macintosh applications and work almost exclusively on Macintosh computers. Smashing Ideas chose Microsoft Project Server 2010 hosted by Microsoft partner Project Hosts. Smashing Ideas is using the solution to easily meet the needs of both PC and Mac users, to free up IT resources for support issues that are more urgent, and to improve its resource management capabilities.
