New capabilities available for major mobile device platforms
FOLSOM, Calif. (February 14, 2012) – Meridian Systems, the Plan-Build-Operate technology solutions leader for project-based organizations, announced today the release of Proliance® software version 5.1. This release adds new mobile device capabilities to the Proliance platform, which provides capital program management capabilities to building owners managing new infrastructure construction and facility renovation programs.
Release 5.1 provides features to improve usability and increase user adoption. These features include extended interface customization capabilities that allow users to tailor field names in menus and form views to create consistency with the terms used by the business. This capability helps building owners to map Proliance features directly to the way that they do business. The Proliance 5.1 release also includes a variety of enhancements that help to streamline many common tasks, including one-click export of data, one-click file upload, and one-click to open project schedules.
In addition, Proliance 5.1 now supports major mobile device platforms, including Android, BlackBerry and iPhone, allowing users to access vital workflow features from a mobile device. Mobile users can now perform workflow driven tasks such as approving an invoice, accessing notices, or reviewing a change request.
“Because more and more users are no longer tied to their desktop, we have dedicated significant research and development activities to offer mobile capabilities to our users,” said Rick Gehringer, who leads the Capital Owners Business Unit at Meridian Systems. “Having the ability to process workflow steps when in the field can further increase the collaboration capabilities already inherent in the Proliance solution.”
Proliance software uniquely combines project and portfolio management, business process management and business analytics into one system of record, enabling large enterprises to track how their real estate, construction and facilities portfolios are performing.
