Powered by Microsoft technologies and the idea of making a difference
Sensei was founded because we saw an opportunity to make a difference in the Project and Portfolio Management space. We felt there was a gap between the discipline of project management and tools most commonly used by organizations.
Our team of experts has, on average, 15-20 years of experience with Microsoft technologies and a deep understanding of the business challenges organizations face around PPM and productivity. We built the world’s first apps for Microsoft Project and pioneered the best practices approach that integrates industry standards from the Project Management Institute (PMI®) and PPM research from Gartner into Microsoft’s productivity platform to help close the gap between the discipline and technology of project management.
In 2014, Sensei was named “PPM Partner of the Year” by Microsoft and in 2015 a portion of our app catalog was acquired by Microsoft and now being made available to millions of users worldwide. In 2016, we joined forces with IPMO, a leading Microsoft partner from Australia, to create a global team of experts, delivering solutions to our customers in over 35 countries around the world.
Our philosophy is that the focus should be on solving a business problem—not on the technology—when deploying Microsoft PPM. As such, we strive to start with ‘why’ and bring years of intellectual property to each engagement through our Services, Solutions, Training and Apps.
As a Microsoft Gold Partner, we have worked with hundreds of organizations and trained thousands of end users to successfully improve productivity. We would welcome the opportunity to do the same for your organization.

"The Sensei PPM Beacon solution enables us to compare active projects for their relative health. These checks allow us to measure projects of different size, scope and location providing a positive light for project managers and predictable project performance for leadership."
"We are striving to standardize and master best practices in the execution of IT projects and improve our project management maturity level and the quality of our deliverables to the business. Project Online is helping us achieve those goals as a centralized tool that provides structure, guidance, and current best practices to achieve project success."
"Automated reporting provides visibility to our entire team and senior executives. We can now measure our workload and plan out staffing needs in advance. Project Online with Sensei PPM Beacon™ has propelled us closer towards project management maturity."
"Microsoft provided a solid cloud foundation of project tools and Sensei added its experience, consultants, best practices, reporting, and education to get us governing our portfolio within weeks."
"With Project, team members can immediately get the status for their own work tasks and synchronize those to Outlook. That's a tremendous benefit for us because it improves the line of communication and helps speed up productivity."
"The automated reports help our organization stay up-to-date and provide key information about our portfolio of projects and how resources are utilized. This saves us hundreds of hours each month; in the past most of our reporting was done manually."
"The number one benefit we’ve realized from Project Online is providing our executives and managers a comprehensive portfolio view into all projects with up-to-date progress, health and strategic impact; and give them the tools to drill into the details."
Sensei PPM Beacon is the most comprehensive and complete solution for Microsoft Project Online available today. We’ve evaluated many versions and implementations of Project Server and Project Online solutions to arrive at that conclusion.
