New product helps to keep all project team members updated and on the same page.
Brisbane, Queensland, September 8, 2014 IPM Global, a leader in software technology for construction project management, has released a new addition to its growing suite of project control tools that allows bidirectional integration with Microsoft Project. Information from Project can be sent to IPM Global’s award winning project controls software solution called IPM to establish beginning and ending dates on each level of breakdown on the project, schedule dependencies and project resources that have been setup in the scheduling system. Project managers and other IPM users can view this information in IPM’s Planning and Forecasting area. As the project progresses and changes occur affecting the schedule that are made in IPM, e.g. dates, resource allocations, etc. can be sent back to Project to keep both sides in sync and containing the same information.
“Companies today are demanding their various software products talk to one another,” says Reef Fielding, an IPM Global Director and its Chief Technical Officer. “Our integration with Project allows the schedulers and project team members to have ‘one version of the truth’ when it comes to the schedule. It joins our other integration applications, Primavera P6 and IPM Link to ERP, that allow sharing of data across the enterprise eliminating double entry and keeping everyone on the same page.”
IPM Global was recently recognized by Constructech Magazine as a technology leader by being given their prestigious CT 50 award. IPM utilizes a Microsoft development platform called xRM that offers built in and native integration with Outlook, SharePoint and Office. A powerful yet easy to use workflow engine from Microsoft is also a part of the platform and allows companies to automate their business processes saving valuable time for their project teams.
