Description:The Project Managment Pack (PMP) is a series of 9 HanDBase (v2.1) databases that can be used separately or together to manage consulting, sales, or project management services. The PMP is an extremely versatile supplement to HanDBase and can be used by numerous types of business professionals such as sales people, project managers, traveling consultants, and individuals who supervise and manage large work teams. Each database is configured to be able to read the most important information in the list view using the To-Do and Address Book buttons to scroll. The PMP allows the business professional to: 1) record general information about the client's or projects with which they work, 2) track client and co-worker contact information (phone, fax, etc.), 3) record visits to client sites or in-house meetings, 4) log billable hours and related information, 5) track deliverables to be provided to or received from the client or other co-workers, 6) track tasks to be completed for each project (including to whom the tasks are assigned, and 7) log communication contacts (phone calls, faxes, e-mails, etc). The PMP is a powerful management tool for the traveling businessperson because it taps into existing records of other databases to complete entries, which makes data entry quick, easy, and complete. This allows the user to associate tasks with specific individuals and companies, and associate certain deliverables with their respective companies. Each database has been designed to work as a standalone database or in conjunction with one or more of the other PMP databases. For those who work in a primarily in-house setting, the pack can be easily modified to serve intra-company work teams and projects. The PMP can be used by consultants, salespeople, project managers, supervisors, team-leaders, work group members, or anyone who manages multiple projects in an in-house or mobile environment. The PMP can be set up to work with a single client, multiple clients, one or more projects, or it can be used to track multiple in-house projects. A description of each database, its function, the field structure, and suggested uses are included in accompanying document. Sample data is include as examples.
