EPM Live, a Microsoft partner and leading provider of project management solutions, unveiled three new services at the 4th annual Microsoft Office Project Conference in Seattle, WA. EPM Live is the first 100% Microsoft-based online project management Software + Service to serve every level of the organization from individuals, teams, departments to executives. EPM Live's suite of solutions includes the EPM Live Workgroup solution as the leading Microsoft Office Project 2007 collaboration tool available as a low cost, low risk subscription service. EPM Live Workgroup connects desktop Microsoft Office Project 2007 with online Windows SharePoint Services by utilizing the Project Publisher to share tasks and schedules directly with project teams.
"The EPM Live Workgroup solution brings the world's leading project management software to the entire work team. Microsoft is excited that EPM Live Workgroup's straightforward solution brings the benefits of Microsoft Office Project 2007, to a wider range of customers," said Mike Angiulo, General Manager of Microsoft Project Business Unit. "An increasing number of customers are attracted to Software + Services for its usability, price, and fast deployment. This solution combines the best of Office Project 2007 with the flexibility of online services empowering everyone on the work team to collaborate more effectively. Whether they call themselves project managers or not, this tool helps leaders get their teams collaborating toward a common goal."
Typically project managers utilize Microsoft Office Project to plan and manage projects but rely on email and spreadsheets to collaborate with their teams. Now, Workgroup empowers everyone on the team to update the status of individual contributions giving project managers real time data to keep their projects on course to success.
EPM Live's two other solutions: Workspace and Enterprise deliver online Microsoft technology ranging from straightforward collaboration workspaces in Windows SharePoint Services to full featured online Microsoft Project Server-based EPM solutions.
EPM Live adds to the growing list of Microsoft-based Software-Plus-Service offerings. Instead of simply selling software licenses, EPM Live offers a range of online collaboration services with flexible pricing options. These full-featured out-of-the box solutions take pressure off in-house IT resources while placing tools in the hands of project managers to successfully manage projects.
