OAK PARK, MI (PRWEB) October 18, 2006 -–
Vertabase, a leading developer of productivity-enhancing project management software, today announced that Capstrat, a strategic communications firm with offices in Raleigh, NC and Washington DC, has successfully been using Vertabase Pro software for three years.
Vertabase Pro organizes people and projects by simplifying, centralizing and accelerating access to critical up-to-date information. Vertabase Pro facilitates management by providing a framework for increased productivity.
Founded in 1995, Capstrat offers marketing-communications, public relations, public affairs and interactive communications services. With clients including GlaxoSmithKline (NYSE: GSK), Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina and RBC Centura, Capstrat is a well-established leader in its field.
With about 100 projects on-going at any given time, each lasting anywhere from an hour to a year, efficient business process management has been critical to Capstrat’s success.
“When we were searching for a project management software solution, we evaluated about eight different systems. In the end, we chose Vertabase Pro,” said Linda Krick, accounting and payroll manager, Capstrat. “Three years later, we are still using the software to manage projects, set budgets and create management reports. Vertabase Pro also interoperates with our accounting software to generate client invoices. It has made our administrative processes much more efficient. For example, manually entering billing information used to take two people an entire day – 16 hours – each month. Now, the same process takes one person less than 2 hours a month – that’s an increase in productivity of almost 90%,” Ms. Krick concluded.
Vertabase’s flagship project management software product Vertabase Pro provides advanced resource planning, easy-to-use project management, project tracking and comprehensive document management. Vertabase’s clients include ABN Amro, Bailey Engineering Group, City of Fresno, Commerce Bancshares, Datanet Engineering, Global Electronics, Institute of National Resources of South Africa, Ives Creative, Mercer Insurance Group, Plymouth Rock, Samson Investment Company, Shore Bank, Unifund, Vector Geomatics, Vicor Power and Washington State Department of Health. Founded in 1997, Vertabase is headquartered in Oak Park MI. For more information, please call (661) 821-2112.
