PUBLIC SECTOR INFORMATION

Our claim of cheaper is not an empty one. I do not think that any private company or public body should pay more than £15 per licence if they have 100 users and for those with users across the UK, pay no more than £5 per licence where there are 1,000 users. On that basis you could save thousands on your IT Budget by purchasing Project Commander and replacing Microsoft Project.

Kirklees reap the benefits of a change from Microsoft

In 2007, the Council  are now really reaping the benefits. Mike Pownall, IT Project Manager at Kirklees says “Prior to purchasing a Project Commander site licence, Kirklees Council were spending £26k per annum on Project software licences with a cost per seat of about £200. With Project Commander, our cost per seat has fallen to less than £1 per annum. We now just pay £1500 annual maintenance to cover the upgrades and support.”

 Helen Bennett also at Kirklees says “Project Commander has enabled more staff to have access to project software within the council for a small cost. This has enabled more staff to become competent at using the software to assist in project management. It does not have the same steep learning curve of Microsoft Project and therefore can be used easily and appropriately by staff. The functionality is similar to Microsoft Project and there can be transfer from one to another if required.”
