EPM Live Launches Online Microsoft-Based Project Management Software Plus Service



    EPM Live's Online Solutions Transform Microsoft Office Project 2007 into
an Affordable Collaboration Powerhouse

    SEATTLE, October 31 /CNW/ - EPM Live, a Microsoft partner and leading
provider of project management solutions, unveiled three new services at the
4th annual Microsoft Office Project Conference in Seattle, WA. EPM Live is the
first 100% Microsoft-based online project management Software + Service to
serve every level of the organization from individuals, teams, departments to
executives. EPM Live's suite of solutions includes the EPM Live Workgroup
solution as the leading Microsoft Office Project 2007 collaboration tool
available as a low cost, low risk subscription service. EPM Live Workgroup
connects desktop Microsoft Office Project 2007 with online Windows SharePoint
Services by utilizing the Project Publisher to share tasks and schedules
directly with project teams.

    "The EPM Live Workgroup solution brings the world's leading project
management software to the entire work team. Microsoft is excited that EPM
Live Workgroup's straightforward solution brings the benefits of Microsoft
Office Project 2007, to a wider range of customers," said Mike Angiulo,
General Manager of Microsoft Project Business Unit. "An increasing number of
customers are attracted to Software + Services for its usability, price, and
fast deployment. This solution combines the best of Office Project 2007 with
the flexibility of online services empowering everyone on the work team to
collaborate more effectively. Whether they call themselves project managers or
not, this tool helps leaders get their teams collaborating toward a common
goal."

    Typically project managers utilize Microsoft Office Project to plan and
manage projects but rely on email and spreadsheets to collaborate with their
teams. Now, Workgroup empowers everyone on the team to update the status of
individual contributions giving project managers real time data to keep their
projects on course to success.

    EPM Live's two other solutions: Workspace and Enterprise deliver online
Microsoft technology ranging from straightforward collaboration workspaces in
Windows SharePoint Services to full featured online Microsoft Project
Server-based EPM solutions.

    EPM Live adds to the growing list of Microsoft-based
Software-Plus-Service offerings. Instead of simply selling software licenses,
EPM Live offers a range of online collaboration services with flexible pricing
options. These full-featured out-of-the box solutions take pressure off
in-house IT resources while placing tools in the hands of project managers to
successfully manage projects.
