toast EPM formerly known as Aceicon Project Server is an easy to use and competitively priced alternative to Microsoft Project Server. Microsoft Project Server is one of the components of Microsoft's Enterprise Project Management (EPM) Solution. Other components like Microsoft Sharepoint and Microsoft Portfolio Server need to be purchased to get the full benefits of the EPM solution. Microsoft Project Server on its own just acts as a server for MS Project Professional files and can be used mainly for project tracking and scheduling. Other features like collaboration etc. come from other components of Microsoft EPM solution.
On the other hand, Aceicon Project Server is a full fledged EPM solution. Aceicon EPM Solution comes with a suite of integrated modules for enterprise wide management of projects including project financials, resources, contractors, documents, knowledge, issues, risks and communication. These features come at a fraction of the price of Microsoft Project Server. The best part is Aceicon Project Server's compatibility with Microsoft Project Professional (.mpp) files. This enables existing MS Project users to easily use Aceicon Project Server in their enterprise. Team members can easily access the project using a browser and also update the status, enter timesheets, review issues, risks, documents etc. Here is a list of some more compelling reasons to use Aceicon Project Server as an alternative to Microsoft Project Server.
