Frequently Asked Questions
Who owns my data?
Visit the Microsoft 365 Trust Center to find detailed and up-to-date information directly from Microsoft.
What if my company has Microsoft 365?
Whether or not your company is using Microsoft 365 or desktop versions of Microsoft Office, there is no additional licensing fee required for VPO. However, VPO runs in its own separate Microsoft 365 tenant for us to provide better administration and support service to our customers.
Is there a free trial of VPO?
We recommend evaluating VPO via using it on an actual project because your time is valuable. In our experience, we have learned that it takes some investment of your time and training to determine if a project management system is going to work for you.
With VPO, there are no large upfront fees or the need to invest in expensive hardware or software licenses. Therefore, it is easy to try it out on pilot project.
I want to use VPO on my next project. How long does it take to start using it?
The training is role-based and very focused on how your team will use VPO.
Each training session is recorded and may be viewed by your team anytime afterwords. Sessions generally run about an hour in length. Typically customers prefer to do one training session per week, equating to an average onboarding / training duration of 5 weeks, though these may happen more quickly based on your team’s availability.
What if I want a feature that you don’t offer?
What is the Architecture of VPO?
Does VPO work on a Mac?
What if my company does not have Office / Microsoft 365?
If your company does not have Office 365, that is fine; we provide it as part of VPO. If your company is considering moving to Office 365, you will be one step ahead because we will set up Office 365 when we set up VPO.

SharePoint, OneDrive, Project Online, Project Professional, Skype for Business, Power BI, Office Online, Office Mobile App, Office Pro–which includes the latest versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and more. Some third-party apps are used as needed also.
As new Microsoft apps become available, we will add them to our VPO solution if they enhance our customer’s ability to manage projects more effectively.
