How does AchieveIt compare to project management?

AchieveIt and project management tools are built for different purposes. If you're not using Excel for project management - good. But be aware that specialized project management tools have their limitations too.

 Project management platforms are designed to measure activity, tactics and lower-level tasks. AchieveIt is purpose-built to measure execution and results of a plan as a whole.

Project management dashboards and tools are helpful for allowing team members to organize assignments and tasks, but they often live in a vacuum.

Using project management tools to track multiple projects quickly becomes overwhelming and makes overall visibility nearly impossible.

AchieveIt shows leaders how projects align to larger initiatives, and how those initiatives support the ​overall plan. Our multi-plan management software​provides visibility into the execution of an entire plan - not just a sigle project - to show progress at an executive level, while also housing the project management details team leaders need. ​
