Project Management Tools
Protech’s standard Project Management Methods (PMM) are founded on the Project Management Institute principles, and are standardized across all Protech’s Projects to ensure seamless and effective project management of onsite, offshore and blended applications development and maintenance initiatives. The PMM includes the following functions which are used consistently across projects.

In support of these project management functions, Protech also utilizes project management tools such as Microsoft project, Lotus work bench etc. which automates generating work breakdown structures, estimating, scheduling, tracking and harvesting intellectual capital. These tools also enable us to provide a customizable, turnkey project management repository for standard procedures, forms and ongoing project records.
