Deltek has been working on a solution for project managers to plan, manage, and monitor their projects without all of the overhead of the Project Planning module. Their solution is Deltek Vision® Navigator, a free, browser-independent, tablet-ready add-on for Deltek Vision® (if you are on Vision version 6.2 or 7.0). Firms that already own and operate the Project Planning module will find that Navigator complements the functionality of that module rather than replaces it. For firms that do not own the Project Planning module, Navigator provides a first step towards full project planning in Vision.
Deltek Vision® Navigator gives firms:
-a management portal for on-the-go project managers
-the ability to easily capture data, manage projects remotely, and share status with everyone
-project control for project managers and project visibility for the firm
Along with Kona, Deltek Vision® Navigator allows firms to manage projects from outside the confines of the Deltek Vision® software. These tools help managers perform their duties whether they are in the office or on-site since they area available to them wherever there is an available Internet connection. A product demo and an FAQ PDF are available at http://www.deltek.com/products/vision/navigator.aspx
P.S. Deltek Vision® Navigator is currently available only in limited release, but it should be available in general release soon. Stay tuned to our blog for more information when it becomes available.
