Reston, VA (Vocus) March 19, 2010
CorasWorks Corporation, a leading provider of applications and application development software for Microsoft SharePoint, today announced a partnership with TeamDirection, Inc., a premier provider of collaborative project solutions, which brings added capabilities to CorasWorks’ popular Project Portfolio Management (PPM) application for SharePoint.
By utilizing TeamDirection’s IntelliGantt Add In for Microsoft Project, CorasWorks is now able to offer two-way synchronization between PPM and Microsoft Project, providing bi-directional integration of task information and work breakdown schedules. This new feature allows project managers to use Microsoft Project to build and manage their project plans, and then share those plans through the CorasWorks PPM, where project members can collaborate and provide input and updates to the plan and project.
“PPM is our most popular app and the response to it has been overwhelmingly positive. However, after talking to numerous project managers, we knew Microsoft Project integration was a must-add feature,” said Dan Naselius, Chief Operating Officer at CorasWorks. “We are very excited to bring this new addition to our customers and the market. With TeamDirection’s help, we are able to add significant value to PPM, making it an invaluable tool for any project manager or project team.”
As part of the new partnership, TeamDirection modified the IntelliGantt Add In for Microsoft Project so users have an out-of-the-box option to import or sync data to the CorasWorks PPM. CorasWorks will resell the IntelliGantt Add In product through its App Store as an upsell to the PPM application. The IntelliGantt Add In for Microsoft Project lists for $199 per user.
“The CorasWorks PPM application is gaining significant traction in the market,” said John Milan, CEO of TeamDirection. “Because of this uptake, we’ve worked with CorasWorks to ensure our product works seamlessly with PPM to import and sync data between the CorasWorks app and MS Project. We see this as a tremendous opportunity to be a part of an exciting new app in the market and also to expose our IntelliGantt Product Suite to a new group of users through CorasWorks and its App Store.”
The most-downloaded application in the CorasWorks App Store, PPM allows project managers and project teams to manage, track and report on individual projects; create and manage multiple portfolios of projects; and gain visibility, insight and control of all project-related activities through drilldown dashboards and reporting.
