Proliance 5.1 delivers Easy-to-use Earned Value with a New Application Pack for Microsoft Office
FOLSOM, Calif. (May 7, 2012) – Meridian Systems, a Trimble Company, announced today that Earned Value capabilities are now available in Proliance® software version 5.1 and in the new Proliance Application Pack for Microsoft Office. Proliance Earned Value provides an easy-to-use set of capabilities for capital building owners to gain more insight into project and program performance, including:
• Tie Cost & Schedule data together to more effectively measure project performance
• Calculate Earned Value (including Schedule Performance Indicator and Cost Performance Indicator) for specific Cost Accounts
• Automatically apply costs to periods using allocation curves
• Visualize project data using the built in charting capabilities
Earned Value capabilities combine the data elements from the budget, cost and schedule modules to allow for accurate project performance measurements. Proliance 5.1, when combined with the new Proliance Application Pack, allows users to quickly and easily interact with Proliance data via familiar Microsoft Office applications and easily perform Earned Value analysis on projects and programs without having to implement a complex system. The Proliance Application Pack brings together a best-in-class capital program management system and the leading desktop productivity applications, enabling users to work more efficiently, reduce risk and work in a familiar environment.
“While recognizing the benefits of Earned Value, many project and program managers have been unable to implement the processes and provide reporting due to the inherent complexities of system alignment and data capture,” said Rick Gehringer, who leads the capital owners business at Meridian. “Proliance addresses these challenges by providing a system that simplifies the use of Earned Value capabilities and makes the benefits much more attainable.”
