New York, NY, Montreal, QC, Lindau, Germany and Geneva, Switzerland (PRWEB) April 1, 2009
Genius Inside, creators of the award-winning Genius Project Portfolio Management (PPM) software, recently announced the release of Genius Project4Domino V6 and Genius Project V2 that include additional features to help streamline project management and simplify access to valuable data.
As Genius Inside's flagship PPM software suite for IBM Lotus Notes, Domino and Web use, Genius Project4Domino and Genius Project are end-to-end solutions that go beyond the Gantt chart to cover all phases of project management, as well as all relevant documents and data.
Developed to provide a more comprehensive solution that brings all aspects of a successful project management program under one umbrella, Genius Project4Domino 6.0 and Genius Project 2.0 now includes key cross-departmental and customizable functions.
A new budget function provides greater flexibility in budget development by allowing the user to define the level of detail, line item breakdown, and budget timeline. Users can drill down from an overview to a detailed line item description with the click of a mouse and choose the level of detail with customizable parameters, such as by project phase, cost center or expense type.
Prioritized Project Requests
An enhanced project portfolio streamlines the standardization and qualification of new project requests with a powerful tool that allows users to manage priorities and balance project requests according to strategic issues, the investment picture and performance. Intuitive bubble charts provide a quick view of the risks and requirements connected to each project or project request to enable more thorough planning for future projects and identify challenges to ensure greater success.
The new invoicing module incorporates start-to-finish project invoicing to improve margin overview, project results and cash flow. User-defined invoicing plans enable the creation of upstream project deadlines for invoicing for time, products and merchandise at specific milestones with every conceivable variable - fixed price or advance invoicing, 30% on order, 30% on delivery and 30% on production start for example - or other options specific to each project. A Genius Inside exclusive, only Genius Project4Domino and Genius Project allows true invoice planning directly from the Gantt, to keep cash flow on pace with project planning. Invoices are generated directly in MS-Word format incorporating client file details such as address and billing information, and can be customized, edited and archived. Invoice details can also be exported to an MS-Excel worksheet once the invoice is generated.
Genius Project4Domino V6 and Genius Project V2 now offers 100% user-configurable dashboards. A collection of pre-defined dashboards, suitable for most needs, can be easily modified to display customized views and graphics, while maintaining drill-down properties that reveal the details behind the big picture. Once created, these custom dashboards can be made available to all users simply by adding them to the navigation.
"Genius Inside is sensitive to the needs of our customers who desire a holistic solution that enables greater flexibility and visibility across all aspects of the project management landscape, especially in today's troubled economy," said Christophe Borlat, CEO of Genius Inside. "This major upgrade to Genius Project affords unprecedented budget forecasting and control features that allow managers to accurately estimate the funds, purchasing and resource requirements for each project, right from the start. With a clearer picture of the projected or possible investments required and better mechanisms to ensure a steady cash flow, companies are able to finally achieve true control over their financial strength, resource requirements and financial planning."
