Consultancy for a business solution
Forscale can help you with the design of a business IT solution. This can be for instance the portal for one extensive project or for several concurrent projects.
Before using a business solution it can be needed to train the users first or to develop a manual or training course.
During the use of a business solution it may be necessary to solve occurring problems according to a support agreement.
Each project has its own workflow containing different departments and expertises. Projects also have different needs for tracking progress, for example an online dashboard or portal for an overview of various projects, possibly coordinated by a Project Management Office. The standard scheduling software from Forscale can be integrated with one or more apps from Google by means of a custom Google Apps Script.
- Standard software means the software is readily available, covering a portion of the needs.
- Custom software is software designed and developed specially for a complex set of customer requirements.
|Standard software||Custom software|
|immediately available||available after development time|
|not all wishes are realized||all wishes are exactly realized|
|low cost per universal feature||costly per unique feature|
|per month per user||paid once|
The custom solution consists of:
Forscale's standard software for project management.
It is a web application that allows users to share schedules.
Google Workspace (Google Apps), the standard online productivity software by Google.
Examples of Google Apps are Drive, Gmail, Docs, Maps, Calendar, Contacts, etc.
Google Apps Script allows customization
by integrating different Google Apps into the workflow of your projects and business and linking it to ProjectWork.
An example of an Apps Script is a
of a ProjectWork schedule that uses Google Docs to present graphs and tables.
