Planview Brings Together Cloud-Based Solutions for PPM and Work Collaboration, Advancing Work and Resource Management Offering
Latest release of Innotas delivers built-in integration with Projectplace and modern, streamlined user experience
AUSTIN, Texas – September 28, 2016
Planview®, the global leader in work and resource management, today unveiled a new version of the Innotas® Project Portfolio Management (PPM) solution. The update features a built-in integration with the Projectplace work collaboration tool and a significant enhancement to the Innotas user experience. This release is the first since Planview acquired Innotas and represents an accelerated advancement of their cloud-based IT project portfolio management offering.
The joint solution of Innotas PPM and Projectplace collaborative work management establishes a unique end-to-end offering, strengthening teams’ ability to plan and execute. With Innotas and Projectplace, users can now leverage the market-leading project portfolio and resource management capabilities of Innotas along with the team-centric collaboration and Kanban-based task management capabilities of Projectplace. Together, from EPMO (Enterprise Project Management Office) and PMO to project manager and team member, organizations have purpose-built capabilities supporting the breadth of project portfolio planning, resource management, and team-centric execution.
“Since Planview acquired Innotas, we have worked aggressively to bring the business value of our combined product lines to our customers. The new version of Innotas, that includes the work collaboration integration, enables customers to more effectively communicate and anticipate project and resource needs across their entire organization,” said Kevin Kern, executive vice president of Innotas by Planview.
In addition to the work collaboration integration, the latest Innotas release also features a new user experience, designed for ease of use while delivering a more efficient way to manage business-critical projects and address the lack of time and resources that challenge todays PMOs.
The new Innotas user experience includes:
- Streamlined User Interface – Features a modern, flat design with improved graphical layouts and additional configurability for individual users. Fewer clicks to get to relevant information saves project managers time that can now be spent on higher-value tasks.
- Self-Service Administration – Empowers organizations to configure their Innotas deployment, reducing the time to implement and allowing for streamlined use cases that are customer-specific and drive user adoption.
- New Reporting Functionality – Enables reporting at the organization, team or department level, helping to improve communication with stakeholders. Audit history reporting and enterprise permissions are now also integrated into the solution.
“This announcement is another important step forward in our vision of delivering a comprehensive spectrum of work and resource management solutions,” said Patrick Tickle, chief product officer, Planview. “We believe our commitment to this approach is unique and serves our customers best by delivering products that are optimized to fit the many different ways they work.”
