Cobalt Project Manager offers a robust toolset for planning, tracking and managing big projects. The application features utilities for scheduling, reporting, analytics, time tracking risk management and resource control, in addition to a host of more advanced features for users truly in need of a one-stop project management solution. Cobalt Project Manager is web-based application, which means it can be access from anywhere with an internet connection for quick updates and adjustments.
The application also boasts a fully functioning calendar widget that allows for up to the minute tracking of project milestones and deadlines.
Cobalt Project Manager was developed by a consulting firm known as Integrated Business Solutions, LLC. The application is managed by Ben Ferris, who oversees the development team and helps plot the course of the software moving forward. The application launched in 2012.
Cobalt Project Manager is similar to other project management applications, but offers a stronger range of features than most. Additionally, the application is based entirely on the web, removing the need for complex multi-machine installs and allowing project teams to focus on the important stuff rather than on syncing software. The application has been designed to be easy to use and intuitive to learn—a common sticking point with PM software.
Cobalt Project Manager is quite easy to use, and all functions are available on dedicated and clearly marked tabs. Most features are just one click from the main PM dashboard, which provides an overview of tasks, statistics and the project’s Gantt chart. Anyone who has used project management software before will find the Cobalt Project Manager layout familiar, but also innovative in its simplicity.
Registration is easy, and comes with a free 30-day trial of the Cobalt Project Manager software. To register, users must provide a first name, last name and email address, in addition to a created password.
There are two tiers of Cobalt Project Manager pricing. The “Personal” account is available free of charge, and provides unlimited projects but no timesheets or advanced features. The “Professional” package provides access to all Cobalt Project Manager features, and runs $12 per month per user. The “Professional” package is available as a 30-day trial.
Cobalt Project Manager is ideal for any group of individuals working simultaneously on one big project. If a business works with project management applications, they would be hard pressed to find a better, cheaper solution than Cobalt Project Manager. Its unique blend of powerful features, web-based architecture and low price make it a strong candidate for anyone looking to take greater control of their projects.
