Now Includes Ease-of-Use Features Such as Drag-and-Drop That Have Previously Been Unavailable in Web-based Applications; New Functionality Helps PSOs Quickly and Easily Meet Client Demands and Drive Revenue
Saddled with budgetary pressures and time constraints, PSOs must efficiently allocate personnel to hundreds of simultaneous projects and ensure that their organizations meet current client demands while anticipating future needs. Executives can now answer high-level workforce planning questions through easy-to-use "what-if" scenarios. And with features such as automatic resume creation, Primavera Evolve gives resource managers immediate access to who the resources they can allocate are and what they have to offer, so staffing requests can be filled faster and more efficiently.
"Perficient is a rapidly growing company that delivers world-class technology solutions to clients throughout North America," said Jason Feucht, Director of Business Operations at Perficient. "Time is quite literally money to us. Primavera Evolve is now even easier to use, which saves us time, and the addition of drag-and-drop and other features give us the best of both worlds: the ease of deployment, maintenance and access of a Web-based application, with the rich functionality that one usually expects to find only on a desktop solution."
Some of the new, key features designed to help managers and executives include:
* Powerful new workforce planning functionality: No need to ponder the "what if's ... " and the "if only's ... " Executives can easily answer and plan for hypothetical scenarios, determining what would result - for instance - if they augmented their workforce in anticipation of taking on a new account or project. With the click of a button, outcomes of hypothetical scenarios are visible instantaneously, helping executives save time and increase their visibility into project commitments and budget goals.
* Look and feel of a desktop application: Primavera Evolve employs Macromedia's Flex technology, which works with Flash to give Web-based applications features and functions that previously have only been available for client-based programs. For example, with Flex, Time & Expense functions operate like common desktop functions that provide drag-and-drop capabilities, improving ease-of-use and facilitating wide spread adoption.
* Enhanced usability and reporting: Managers can perform searches by skill set for unspecified positions and can generate resumes for a group of resources from numerous places within Primavera Evolve.
"Primavera Evolve gives PSOs the tools they need to plan more effectively and better prepare to meet the challenge of an ever more competitive global market," said Joanne McCool, Primavera Evolve General Manager. "With quick and easy access to information about their resources, managers and executives will find it far easier to make critical decisions and maximize productivity."
