Austin, TX (PRWEB) February 15, 2006
QuickArrow, Inc., the worldwide leader in On Demand Professional Services Automation solutions for Billable Services Organizations, has launched the QuickArrow Sandbox. The QuickArrow Sandbox enables Services professionals to keep pace with the fluctuations of today’s business environment by testing the impact that potential changes will have on their Services Operations prior to implementation.
The QuickArrow Sandbox provides clients an exact copy of their production site, which their teams can use for configuration, testing and training. The QuickArrow Sandbox incorporates all of the benefits of QuickArrow’s production On Demand Professional Services Automation solution ─ in a separate, controlled environment that enables clients to model the impact of new functionality or configurations before putting them into production.
“The QuickArrow Sandbox gives our clients a platform to test new configurations, train employees and play with new ideas before implementation, which allows Services Operations teams to formulate plans of action and execute effective strategies,” said Elizabeth Davis, QuickArrow’s CEO. “The QuickArrow Sandbox eliminates costly infrastructure investments and the maintenance headaches that come from trying new configurations on production environments, making it easy for clients to explore new functionality and streamline their processes.”
“Our QuickArrow Sandbox is a great environment for testing process changes in a safe environment, away from our production data,” said Matthew Kell, Operations Director at Autodesk, Inc. “We’re also using our Sandbox to train new project managers. They get hands-on experience building projects in an up-to-date copy of our live environment.”
As part of its ongoing commitment toward continual value-add for its users, QuickArrow will continue to provide educational offerings such as industry-relevant newsletters, webinars, and best practices training on enabling Professional Services Automation Success throughout 2006. Additional releases for the year include enhancements to QuickArrow’s exclusive Advanced Analytics Executive Reporting Tool, the release of the company’s next-generation Web-based reporting module, and bidirectional Web services API capabilities to enable integration with critical front- or back-office applications.
QuickArrow is the leading provider of automation and management software for Billable Services Organizations. QuickArrow offers the first and only PSA solution specifically designed to streamline operations and provide visibility into all key operational metrics for Billable Services Organizations.
QuickArrow has received its second unqualified SAS 70 Type II certification, following an extensive audit by Ernst & Young LLP. This certification demonstrates the company’s commitment to the safety and security of clients’ data and to the reliability of QuickArrow’s service.
