Project Management Software
Specialists in Project Infrastructure
Project Administrator requires the installation of a version of Microsoft Access 2000 or later. We also provide a version with a runtime copy of Microsoft Access. This can be used to enable the software to run.
Disk space required is initially 18MB. This will grow as additional data is added.
The database is stored in a separate file which can be held on a server. The database is an Access database. The product is shipped with two databases. The first is a blank database which can be used as the production database. The second is an example database which has some sample data. This can be used as a training aid to understand how the program can be used. The PA Main Application (PA6.MDE) is a compiled Access database file and contains all the screens and reports.
A separate file is installed so that you can write custom reports. This is an Access MDB file which is opened from within the main Access application from the reports menu screen.
The main application (an Access .mde file) can be stored on a server, or individual PC's.
From time to time we release a new version or build of our software. You can see a release history by clicking here.
As an option, you can upsize to a SQL Server back end database. For organisations who want a more robust back end, or where Access databases are not permitted, SQL Server can be installed. The front end (screens, reports, code) still sits in an Access file that is located on your local drive. For more information click here.
The application has an interface to Microsoft Project. It uses information from MS Project combined with information from PA for reporting and analysis. Microsoft Project 98 or later is required. If Microsoft Project is not present, it means one part of the system cannot be used. You can however create a schedule within PA. You can still set up projects and phases, track benefits and issues, manage documents and action items etc. The impact is not significant. You can however create a schedule within PA.
