Overall Satisfaction

The application was used to gather and summarize information from all stakeholders of a project to present to management. This summarized report was performed once a month. I would complete a report of the project schedule in the XaitPorter and submit the report before the deadline (provided by the XaitPorter controllers, Project Coordinators) to the Project Manager for review. Once my information has been approved, it is submitted to the Project Coordinators to compile with the other team member's reports (from document control, procurement, quality assurance, etc.). Upper management would then meet and review the reports with the Project Managers.

I believe these reports helped in two ways; the first, for how managers presented the information, and two, for how upper management received the information. The XaitPorter application made it easy for the Project Managers to gather and present information about his project. He did not have to chase after the information from each team member every month. The report was a set format and that provided a great outline for his presentation. The layout of the reports were consistent for all the projects. This consistency helped upper management better understand the information presented.
  • Easy to use.
  • The application can compile several reports into one.
  • Keeps track of historical reports.
  • Better graphics or layout options.
  • It was easy to use but the tools were very basic. More options to customize would have been a nice feature.
  • Better organized reports.
The only other reporting tools I have used, comparable to Xaitporter are Microsoft PowerPoint and Microsoft Word. With XaitPorter, I like how the program can gather information from different users and compile them in to one report. With the Microsoft applications, I like the various features that allow the user to customize the report.
It's very basic. More features would be better.
I believe it is a great tool in collecting and compiling information from all team members and suited the company's purpose of implementing the application.
