The purpose of this project was to provide the client with a project management solution that provided for better communication between ITS and the community, while providing a place for projects to be proposed and stored, ensuring projects are not lost. This goal was achieved through a process of determining the client's business needs, examining their existing systems, preparing a formal project plan, and designing and implementing a solution. The result was a solution that provided the community a location to improve communication on project status on a 24x7 basis. Through the design of a custom project management solution, all of the client's goals were achieved. The application worked with the client's current security system; guaranteeing all community users are able to access the system, without requiring a new username/password. The application also provided users the ability to finish a project proposal over multiple sessions, for projects to be prioritized, and phases to be added to each project with the ability to assign each phase to a project manager and team. The project was a successful solution to the problems defined, with the success attributed to clearly defined goals. The project used commonly used internet technologies, which provided a solution easy to use and implement.
