Projity's Project-ON-Demand 2.0, Now Available on AppExchange, Integrates Additional Project Management Functionality with Salesforce

Project dashboards, documents, reports and account integration are added to existing task management and calendar integration between Salesforce and Project-ON-Demand

SAN MATEO, CA — August 1, 2006 — Projity and salesforce.com [NYSE:CRM], the market and technology leader in on-demand business services, today announced improved integration between salesforce.com's on-demand CRM and Projity's project management solutions. Projity's new release of Project-ON-Demand 2.0 for AppExchange extends the integration between the two products and add significant new features for joint customers.

New features in Project-ON-Demand include:

  • Dashboards: See Project-ON-Demand Dashboards and Reports in Salesforce
  • Project Task synchronization: Projity tasks now fully synchronized with Salesforce
  • Document repository: Project document repository can be created in Salesforce
  • Projects can be assigned to Accounts, Opportunities or Products
  • Project-ON-Demand multi-project release: links tasks between separate projects and creates sub-projects/master-projects
  • Project-ON-Demand multi-project release: enterprise resource analysis across all projects
  • Task integration: Tasks completed in Salesforce reflected in Project-ON-Demand
  • Milestone integration: Project milestones populate integrated Salesforce calendar
Salesforce.com and Projity have worked closely together to identify the areas of integration that joint customers require to increase the internal efficiencies created by using on-demand solutions.

 

"As the project and portfolio management (PPM) market expands and its value proposition resonates with potential customers, the size of these project organizations interested in PPM systems are now beginning to vary," says Daniel B. Stang, a Principal Research Analyst within Gartner covering Project and Portfolio Management systems. According to Mr. Stang, "an expanded interest in PPM systems among project organizations of various sizes is driving demand for more flexible deployment and pricing options, including Software-as-a-Service or OnDemand options."

Project-ON-Demand information can now be integrated into existing Salesforce user views. Projects scheduled in Project-ON-Demand can be updated and viewed from within Salesforce. Because Project-ON-Demand users can now create document repositories in Salesforce, project centric documentation can be created and stored within Salesforce. Projity users also have the ability to assign a Project-ON-Demand project to an existing Salesforce Opportunity, Account or Campaign. The assignment of Salesforce attributes to projects within Project-ON-Demand allows for further integration and reporting between the solutions. In addition, project tasks can be completed from within Salesforce with the results reflected back in the Project-ON-Demand project schedule. The multiple levels of integration are a big win for the on-demand customer.
