Chronicle Graphics, makers of visualization software for project managers, announces the debut of OnePager Express. OnePager Express is a graphics package for Microsoft Excel that creates one-page snapshots of the tasks, milestones, and activities that take place during the lifecycle of a project or engagement.
Because OnePager Express works with Microsoft Excel, users do not have to be familiar with Microsoft Project in order to create rich Gantt charts. While project management professionals will likely continue to use OnePager Pro and Microsoft Project, OnePager Express opens up rich timeline imaging to new groups of users. Outside of project management, images are used to visually manage meeting agendas, depict sequences of events in litigation, and engage prospective clients as a part of business development efforts.
"The new OnePager Express enables entire teams to create standardized project summary charts, even if people are using Microsoft Excel instead of Microsoft Project to keep track of dates and milestones," said Jim Black, Founder and CEO of Chronicle Graphics. "OnePager Express adds a new degree of consistency to the presentations given not only by those in project management, but by other organizational functions as well."
Chronicle Graphics is the company behind OnePager and TimeArrow, software tools that enable project managers to create graphical one-page project summaries and overviews for use with scheduling teams, senior management, and other key stakeholders. Founded in 2006, Chronicle Graphics has licensed its technology to Fortune 500 companies spanning multiple industries, including aerospace, defense, telecommunications, healthcare, and energy.
