IntelliGantt is for anyone who would like to tap into business apps (MS Project and Mindjet MindManager) and use readily available collaboration tools (SharePoint and Basecamp) to run a project with a team. It's extremely flexible-- you can use it standalone, with other IntelliGantt products or in conjuction with business and collaboration apps. Here's a picture:
We take pride in demystifiying project management. We also believe project management is one of the most social of business endeavors, so the ability to provide a rich, intuitive UI with very strong collaboration features we think is compelling.
We've seen many web applications recently announce they have offline solutions. We are a rich desktop application that has a great online solution.
Depends how you'd like to use it. A single project manager working with a team may prefer IntelliGantt and its integration with MS Project and SharePoint task lists so team members can update assignments with their web browser.
Or, if you'd like a more collaborative approach, then everyone might want IntelliGantt to create, share and update projects with colleagues, consultants, even end customers. With IntelliGantt, everyone will have the up to date view of the project.
First of all, you can work when you want-- even offline. Second, IntelliGantt integrates with powerful applications adding value to your current software investments. Third, IntelliGantt's rich UI-- interactive Gantt chart with instant circular link feedback, instant scheduling ramification feedback and summary task drag and drop are not currently possible with web applications.
Fourth, you have a local copy of the project at all times with IntelliGantt. Even if the worst were to happen, you will always have a backup.
Glad you asked. We have a whole other FAQ dedicated to that question.

A Project Manager might be responsible for a large project with many parts. Using IntelliGantt, he/she could select only the parts that need sharing-- a particular summary task or summary topic and all its children-- and invite a select group to work on the selected piece. The Project Manager can monitor progress, and synchronize results back into the original project as they see fit. When the sub-project is done, it can simply go away.
Reponsibility for tasks may be distributed among the group. In this case, IntelliGantt makes sense as everyone participates in building and managing the schedule. As people make changes to the schedule, IntelliGantt performs intelligent merges so that everyone's changes are incorporated into the shared view. Everyone has a sense for what needs to be done and how things are going.
IntelliGantt has both multi-project and dashboard views that let you select any project you'd like for viewing. Simply check or uncheck the checkbox to the left of the project name in the Projects tree view.
IntelliGantt supports costing very well. Esitmated and actual costs are provided for every task with rollups. We have a whole page dedicated to the rich costing features found in IntelliGantt.
We have been demonstrating IntelliGantt to people all over the world by inviting them to sample projects and collaborating as a brief demonstration. Contact us at sales and we can show you how easy it is to share tasks-- no matter where you are.
