Problem:

When businesses have processes that need to be followed repetitively and have targeted beginning and deadline dates, the most efficient and consistent way to drive these processes is to use a templated project management solution.
 

Solution:

Use the Milestones PM+ template functionality to automatically create projects within Salesforce to increase efficiency, productivity, and consistency with all types of business processes. With Milestones PM+, there are no limits on the number of templates that can be used. Each business unit in a company may have their own project types, and if desired, house them under a Program.

Some examples of how companies are using Milestones PM+:

  • Budget Management
  • Issue Management
  • IT Project Management
  • Milestone Tracking
  • Percent-Complete Tracking
  • Portfolio Management
  • Project Planning
  • Requirements Management
  • Resource Management
  • Status Tracking
  • Task Management
  • Time & Expense Tracking
  • Employee Onboarding/Other HR related projects.
  • Customer Onboarding/ Any processes that need to be completed post-sale for service or product companies.
  • Marketing Projects
    • Events
    • New Website Launch
  • Construction projects/ New Location Openings
  • Retail / Seasonal Displays or Pricing Changes
  • Real Estate - Property Purchase/Sale/Rentals
  • New Product Launch
  • Time Tracking
  • Process Management
  • Waterfall / Traditional Project Management
  • Gantt Chart
  • A specific project delivery methodology is needed (PMI PMBOK or Prince2-based or Stage-Gate) 
  • Tracking Billable vs Non-Billable Time
  • Internal Business Process Implementations

For each of these project types, a template or templates can be used for automatic project creation including all of the necessary milestones, tasks, durations, dependencies, risks, and issues. As an example, we have created a Starter Template MPM+ Stage-Gate® Project.
