Tools Within EPPORA

Communication

Real-Time Project Interactions

Bill Gates said, “I’m a great believer that any tool that enhances communication has a profound effect in terms of how people can learn from each other and how they can obtain the kind of information that they’re interested in. ” This quote inspired the development of EPPORA communication methodology; our communication engine is based on the principle that intelligent feedback is the key to communication. EPPORA keeps all Project Team Members informed of their tasks in priority order and vastly simplifies the communication between Project Team Members and the Project Manager thus simplifying the effort needed to maintain up-to-date schedules daily. Each EPPORA user has a list of project schedule tasks on their Home page relevant to their assigned responsibilities.
