Struggling With Repetitive Tasks, Optimizing Resource Allocation & Analyzing Project Performance?
How Project Automation Can Help You Overcome Salesforce® Project Management Pain Points
Common pain points organizations often face with Salesforce Project Management are that Salesforce doesn’t have project, portfolio, or resource management capabilities within any Cloud.
This can create inefficiencies and lack of transparency for organizations. Imagine managing a project and being unable to view options for resources for tasks that need to be completed.
For example, as the Healthier Kids Foundation grew, they saw a need for a more structured approach for project management. The team was using emails, Word documents, spreadsheets, and Outlook Calendars to manage projects, but they weren’t able to track how much work was coming in or who was doing the work.
Healthier Kids needed a solution that was integrated with Salesforce, so they chose Milestones PM+ to help them organize projects.
“When I first started, if someone had done a report, there was no record of it. There was no way to track when it was created or what the parameters were. The organization was swamped constantly with new programs,” explains the organization’s Chief of Staff, VP Information Systems and Quality, Bob Hansen.
Bob said that Milestones PM+ eliminated that chaos and gave them a unified source of communication on who is requesting the work and what they’re requesting. (Read the full story: Milestones PM+ Helps the Healthier Kids Foundation Manage Projects and Focus on Their Mission.)

We get it. Salesforce reports can be tricky to create and, even if done successfully, the color selection of the charts and dashboards are restrictive and occasionally not visually distinct.
