Asta Powerproject update is now released with new modules and online services

Elecosoft, the specialist international software provider, is further enhancing its award-winning Asta Powerproject planning and project management software, with its latest release (version 17) bringing greater collaboration and sharing capabilities.

Available to Asta Powerproject subscribers, key updates include:

Protecting your work: the new autosave feature automatically saves progress at regular intervals with the default autosave setting of 10 minutes. Users can customise timings to save their work more or less frequently.

New project timeline feature: including a new project timeline control panel, allowing customers to create key task overviews for each project. Programme managers can also add drop lines and call out priority tasks to ensure projects stay on track.

Activities within tasks: users can now break down a task into several activities that can be progressed individually and checked off when completed. Project managers can weight each activity’s importance to track overall task progress as individual actions are completed. This simplifies the structure of the overall programme without losing the fine detail.

Real-time collaboration: compatibility with a brand-new module that allows project teams to work on a programme together in real time, benefitting from instant digital feedback on projects. This upgrade will help companies to enhance collaboration and prevent miscommunication within their projects.

Global governance library: compatibility with the Asta global library management module to simplify company standards, save time and improve data accuracy and reporting. Centralising project templates will help organisations that use Asta Powerproject to manage workflows and ensure project compliance, as any changes will be automatically applied the next time a project is checked out.

Introduction of meaningful associations: teams can assign and differentiate project tabs in various colours to make workflows easier to visualise.

David Simpson, Global Product Manager, Elecosoft, says: ​​“Asta Powerproject version 17 continues our focus on creating positive experiences and outcomes for our customers, with the latest version strengthening project communication and collaboration. We’re committed to identifying what’s important to our customers; made possible by our active global network of customers and partners. Through their feedback, we’re continually evolving the products and services based on their needs.”

In addition to upgrading its market-leading planning and project management software, Elecosoft is enhancing how it rolls out future software updates to ensure Asta Powerproject customers benefit from the latest functionality.

Asta Powerproject subscribers will receive a notification alert when new features are available, which they can automatically deploy via an installation wizard if this has been enabled.

David Simpson adds: One critical advantage of version 17 is that we can quickly deploy updates to customers. The new installation process gives users automatic access to the latest usability improvements and access to further modules.”

Automating installation will enable Elecosoft to shorten release cycles for Asta Powerproject subscribers, and customers can expect to see their ideas rolled out faster.

Full details of the updates and enhancements being made to Asta Powerproject are available in the new version release notes. For more information on Asta Powerproject, please visit the Elecosoft website.
