All project managers are capable to personally perform the most difficult tasks as the developers. This ensures that the project team members will be closely controlled and given a good advice.
For project management IntroPro uses MS Project, Trac and other products. Also, for many projects the customer’s project management systems are used by the customer’s demand. Detailed weekly reports and if needed daily reports are the basis of successful projects’ progress information exchange with the customer
For effective information and data exchange with customer following instruments are used:

  • Online weekly and daily meetings through WebEx tool
  • Repository of project working documents available for project teams from both sides

Key employees of IntroPro are often present at customer’s site at crucial phases of the project based on a customer’s demand – requirements specification clarification, initial design, deployment of application.
For account management two approaches are practiced. First, a custom system is developed for specific customers. Second, a customer’s account/project management system is to be used when IntroPro managers had a direct access to the customer’s system. The choice here is to the customer.
