Document management at multiple levels within a project:

Complex PM Solutions focus on end to end integration. They are high cost solutions with long lead implementation times. However, typically only 20% of the functionality is used in any company on a repetitive value added basis. Also, they are not fully web based and hence add deployment complexity

Other, more cost effective solutions (like Microsoft Project) focus on defining and maintaining effective Project Plans. Though low cost, they are typically not collaborative solutions. They do not enable global project teams to work in context of a project dashboard concept. Web enabling deliverables (like MS project plan) typically does not deliver the required level of integration for successful project management

PACE brings the best of the high end and low end solutions in one integrated package:

  • Web based and enabler for global collaboration
  • Ability to manage multiple document formats (MS Project Plan, Excel, CAD files, etc.)
  • PMO methodology independent - Enables customers to model and reuse their unique time tested methodologies for project management aligned with their corporate culture
  • .NET architecture based:
    • Open, extensible architecture
    • Enables addition of third party modules and customer specific configurations
    • Integration with existing business processes and applications
