We've reached the size where our projects are becoming more costly in terms of people, resources and capital expenditures
Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) February 10, 2011
Abel Solutions, Atlanta's leading Microsoft SharePoint solution provider, announced today that they will be deploying a project management solution for Metametrix Clinical Laboratory based on SharePoint 2010 and EPM Live's WorkEngine. The solution includes an upgrade from Windows SharePoint Server (WSS) 3.0 and addresses Metametrix's requirements for a mechanism that allows them to better track project requests, priorities and progress from multiple departments across their organization.
"We've reached the size where our projects are becoming more costly in terms of people, resources and capital expenditures," explains Dave Kuehling, Director of Information Technology for Metametrix.
To date, Metametrix has experienced limited success introducing project management techniques without an infrastructure tool. Metametrix had an existing WSS 3.0 implementation, however due to insufficient planning and education had not experienced widespread adoption across their organization. Abel Solutions recommended an upgrade to their SharePoint environment and the deployment of WorkEngine.
"Abel Solutions helped us understand that SharePoint could have a major impact on our business if we had a proper implementation," continues Kuehling. "Abel's introduction of SharePoint and WorkEngine fit our bill perfectly."
EPMLive's WorkEngine provides Microsoft SharePoint Project and Work Management solutions for teams, workgroups and organizations that want to utilize enterprise tools.
"Metametrix had fallen prey to the traps and pitfalls common to early SharePoint deployments conducted with minimal planning and education," explains Kevin Abel, President of Abel Solutions. "With our more practiced delivery method, Abel Solutions will help Metametrix gain broader adoption of the platform and fully realize its value for workflow and collaboration."
