A company specialising in large-scale environmental and earthwork projects has chosen project management software from Micro Planning International after rejecting competing packages, including Microsoft Project.
Alaska Environment Contracting is using MPI's Micro Planner Manager software to monitor and control resources for environmental projects more effectively.
The company said projects often involve lots of variable factors and large numbers of staff, making it difficult to keep resources in balance.
By automating the whole process, Alaska said it was able to icheck nstantly whether projects are running on time and to budget. It can also check that resources have been allocated properly.
The MPI software, which is running on an Apple Macintosh platform, has already been used for two big environmental contracts. Alaska declined to say what these were.
