TeamTrack Solves Mission-Critical Issues
TeamTrack from Serena Software, Inc. (www.serena.com) offers “Web-
architected workflow management solutions.” In English, that means that the
software helps you identify problems and defects that may crop up in your
processes — and find solutions. The software allows you to create visual
maps for your processes and share that data among your team members.
The Web focus here means that people can get to the process data online
without having Project running. Serena offers ProjectBridge to help integrate
their system with Microsoft Project.
One nice feature of this software is that it notifies you when a problem occurs
or deadlines have passed without activity. TeamTrack even helps you identify
issues that might arise when “non-talking” systems communicate. In other
words, if you integrate two pieces of software to share data and data comes
into Project that causes a problem, you won’t even know it because you’re
not inputting it. TeamTrack flags such problems to help you avoid missing a
critical situation before it’s too late.
Serena’s Web site offers a free evaluation download and online case studies
to help you decide whether TeamTrack is right for you.
