KeyedIn® Solutions Announces Major Enhancements to KeyedInProjects with launch of v5.2
MINNEAPOLIS --(Business Wire)--
Solutions, a global SaaS (News - Alert) (Software as a Service) solutions provider
and consulting services organization, has announced a new release of its
globally-acclaimed Cloud-based project management suite, KeyedInProjects™.
KeyedInProjects™ v5.2 includes wide-ranging new-to-market
functionality that is immediately available through its SaaS platform or
as an on-premise or hosted license.
A key addition is the new Social Collaboration feature that enables
project teams to communicate and collaborate within the software and
work together using social tools.
"KeyedInProjects™ provides an unbeatable platform for core
project management processes. Now, with less formal information flows
and communication paths, we're giving our customers another layer of
efficiency with the ability to collaborate in real-time", notes Karen
Adame, Chief Product Officer at KeyedIn Solutions.
"By adding Collaboration to KyedInProjects™ v5.2, we have
enabled users to record threaded discussions so the team can
communicate, interact and help each other online. Importantly, this
keeps team discussions within the project environment, rather than in
personal email systems or on insecure social networks."
Recognizing that even best of breed products cannot stand alone, KeyedInProjects™
v5.2 includes a portfolio of web services that allow for easy
integration with third party finance, CRM, HRIS and other applications
while ensuring data integrity and security.
A new Alerts and Notification function is also included in v5.2. Users
can configure Alerts to notify them when they or their teams have tasks
assigned or overdue. Alerts can be delivered within the software on a
new Notification tab, or via the user's email system.
A task-based planning tool, which displays projects as a Gantt chart,
has been enhanced with an option to display a critical path which can be
toggled to red. A new task filter enables only critical path tasks to be
displayed giving users visibility into priority activities.
User interface customization - widely praised by the customer base - has
been further improved to increase flexibility of data selection and
display. The Contract Management module has been enhanced to include
Billing by Hour.
As KeyedInProjects™ achieves global reach and becomes the project
management suite of choice for multi-national operations, multi-lingual
support has been enhanced in v5.2. Whatever language the data is held
in, users can view the KeyedInProjects™ screens in any one of
eight supported languages. Languages added in this update include:
Spanish, Latin American Spanish, Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese.
The company has signalled its intention to develop the high-technology
Scandinavian and Baltic markets and expects to add four more languages
in the next version, scheduled for release Q1, 2013.
KeyedInProjects™ was first launched mid-2012 by KeyedIn following
the successful acquisition of UK-based software developer, Atlantic
Global. It received immediate acclaim within the enterprise business
applications market by bringing together three scalable elements of
project management into a single Cloud-based suite: Professional
Services Automation (PSA), Project/Program Management Office (PMO), and
Project Portfolio Management (PPM (News - Alert)).
KeyedInProjects™ is currently accessed by more than 26,000 users
in 167 organizations globally. For a free trial of the new KeyedInProjects™
v5.2, visit www.keyedin.com.
