The Services Execution Management (SEM) solution will be aimed at helping the automation of key business processes of enterprises in the services sector in order to allow them to manage various aspects of service delivery - resources, projects, customer communication, timesheets, in an integrated manner.
The solution is going to integrate Microsoft’s Enterprise Project Management platform Microsoft Project Server with Compulink System’s Whizible application, and will provide several enhanced features such as project portfolio analysis and centralized project repository.
Sundar Balasubramanium, Director, information worker group, Microsoft Corporation India Pvt. Ltd. said, “Our partnership with Compulink will help harness their domain expertise in developing innovative solutions for the services industry. With the introduction of Whizible EPM, we hope to provide a cutting edge Enterprise Project Management (EPM) solution to fulfill the information needs of global services delivery organizations who are executing projects through multiple teams which are often geographically dispersed.”
Whizible EPM will help automate management, execution and tracking of operations for organizations that service their external as well as internal audience. Microsoft’s Enterprise Project Management (EPM) Solution based on MS Project Server will bring together client, server, and web-based technologies to enable these organizations, manage company-wide projects and align business initiatives for better results.
As a result of the joint venture, Compulink’s Whizible, composed of complementary features to MS Project Server will help service centric organizations manage projects, processes and interactions between teams.
“We are excited about this opportunity to build our product on the Microsoft’s powerful EPM platform and though this joint development, we hope to deliver breakthrough benefits to users. We also look at this as a strategic relationship with Microsoft, and are very positive about this step,” said Vishwas Mahajan, Chief Executive Officer, Compulink Systems.
