BALTIMORE, July 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Project Management Learning Center (PMLC) launched online today providing a one-stop resource for education and training in the project management field. The PMLC launch follows the release of the highly successful TeamGantt Guide to Project Management, which has already been viewed by over 60,000 people.

Project management is a growing profession across all sectors, including the booming tech sector as well as construction, events, management consulting, and marketing industries. The role of a project manager is continually evolving, and it is now more important than ever for professionals to have access to an up-to-date resource.

Commenting on the launch, Nathan Gilmore co-founder of TeamGantt, the company behind PMLC said, "Today's project managers don't have time to read long instruction manuals or take months to learn how to use new project management software. We designed the Project Management Learning Center with the intention of creating a one-stop resource for project managers that is easy to access and use."

The PMLC offers video tutorials, informative blog posts, and helpful tips for project managers. The videos section includes quick TeamGantt lessons and interviews with project management experts. Seasoned professionals and beginners alike can benefit from the PMLC's advice on how to increase productivity, what to look for when hiring a project manager, and better ways to improve project management skills. The PMLC combined with TeamGantt's simple-to-use project scheduling software makes project management easier than ever.

Project management software is a valuable tool for any successful business. According to PwC1 research, a positive correlation exists between project management software and project performance. 87% of the most successful company projects, according to PwC, use project management software.2   

The PMLC is the perfect complement to TeamGantt's cutting-edge project management software. TeamGantt was founded in 2010 as a web-based, streamlined alternative to the clunky desktop project management programs on the market. TeamGantt separates itself from competitors with its use of Gantt charts—easy-to-read timelines that illustrate the start and finish dates of a project. Whereas scheduling projects once involved using desktop software and constantly emailing revised schedules, TeamGantt ushered in online scheduling and efficient collaboration for the cloud era. Project managers across the globe are attracted to TeamGantt's usability and beautiful interface. Never before has it been so easy to schedule and manage a project!

Since its founding, TeamGantt has gone global. The once unassuming bootstrapping startup is marking its fifth anniversary with thousands of customers in over 60 different countries—all without any venture capital backing, a rarity for a tech startup.

On July 16th, TeamGantt will be hosting a briefing with the top influencers in project management. The briefing will include a TeamGantt product overview and demo, a walkthrough of new product features, and an introduction to the new PMLC. Anyone interested in attending the briefing may attend either an early session at 11am (ET) or a later session at 4pm (ET.) For more information, please contact Ivy Wisner at (415) 580-3089 or iwisner@mercury360.com.
