When will your project go over budget?

One of the most painful experiences in project management is when a project goes over budget. The reasons vary but in most cases are 1. due to over-promising -leading to unsustainable time estimations, or 2. too many projects running in parallel resulting in insufficient oversight and guidance.

At Cronforce we proactively address such issues by tracking time bookings and budgets. You can plug the actual rates for your team members and set a budget for a project, sub-project or phase in a project. Once this is done, it is up to you to set a notification if budget reaches a certain level. In addition, you can disallow a budget to be exceeded or allow to exceed by just a certain amount. Many project managers and executives rely heavily on the Cronforce dashboard visualisations that allow in seconds to go over your complete list of projects and track progress. Find below an example of budget tracking:
