PORT KEMBLA COAL TERMINAL VISIT

In mid-January, 152hq visited the Port Kembla Coal Terminal and had a chat with some local engineers and project managers about what aspects of the project management game can be improved and how we can incorporate these improvements into our product. As always, the most common concern was lack of knowledge transparency and mountains of paperwork that need to be sifted through and sorted to generate any kind of forecasting reports. This kind of feedback is great for us, as we believe that consistently being in contact with what our client base wants and needs from their project management software is the best way forward. The only method to get reliable feedback is to talk with them directly; they have skin in the game within their industry and they know what is required to get the job done correctly the first time.

Over the last 12 years, the scope of what Tracka has wanted to achieve has both grown significantly, but our core directive has always remained the same. At its foundation, Tracka is a program that tracks the progress of projects. The initial idea for Tracka started out as a Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet, then moved through to an access database, then an online access database, then through to an application that is a basic incarnation of what we have today. A series of major updates over this time period has resulted in the program we have today.
