As a project manager, your worst enemy is being blindsided. “Unexpected” is a dirty word. You want to see everything, in a single view. With TeamGantt you can see your schedules, resources, estimates vs actuals in one view. Try doing that in MS project, its difficult when all the data is scattered accross many screens.
As time goes on your projects begin to look, feel, and act the same. The structure, flow, dependencies, and timelines share characteristics. While MS Project allows you to create templates, those templates are static snapshots. In TeamGantt, any project can be a template. As that seed project evolves the template evolves with it.
