Trilog Group Announces General Availability of ProjExec® 3.0 For IBM® Workplace™ and Open Standard Platforms

Multi-Enterprise Project Management Solution Unveiled at Project Summit New England; Offers Superior Project Execution Portal for Distributed Teams

WOBURN and BURLINGTON Mass., October 26, 2005 -- Today at Project Summit New England, Trilog Group, Inc., a pioneer in secure multi-enterprise project management offerings and the established provider of distributed collaborative business process solutions, announced the immediate availability of ProjExec 3.0. Designed to solve the many challenges presented by the use of separate and distinct communication and project management tools in highly distributed project environments, this innovative solution provides a single collaborative process portal environment with a common infrastructure for execution and management of multi-enterprise projects.

ProjExec 3.0 is now available in two editions. The version branded as ProjExec 3.0 for IBM Workplace is optimized for IBM Workplace and IBM WebSphere Portal. ProjExec 3.0 Standard Edition supports any J2EE-compliant web application server.

Results generated by project teams working together under a single roof are now possible for geographically and organizationally distributed project teams using the secure and highly integrated ProjExec 3.0 project management portal. ProjExec 3.0’s extensive collaborative capabilities augment a strong project management foundation that complies with industry standards established by the Project Management Institute (PMI). ProjExec 3.0 focuses on solving the problems that are common to multi-enterprise projects, allowing processes to extend seamlessly outside an organization to form virtual project teams regardless of geography, time zone, culture, standards, or IT infrastructure.

ProjExec 3.0 optimizes team productivity while providing project managers and stakeholders real-time visibility, predictability and control on all project aspects. Distinguishing features include:

  • Enhanced collaboration through virtual presence, contextual role-based collaboration and integrated instant messaging tools;
  • Integrated project workflow processes for time and activity management, issue management, document management and change request management;
  • Integration with MS Project and graphical Work Breakdown Structures (WBS), team calendar and common access to project information with role-based security;
  • Dashboard control, portfolio tracking and visibility of critical project metrics with real-time tabular and graphical reporting tools, automated alerts and progress reports;
  • Threaded discussion forums and automated notifications for timely resolution of issues;
  • Integrated team calendaring and scheduling for increased productivity;
  • Automated rule-based alerts and notifications delivering the right information to the right people in the right roles;
  • A unique component architecture that includes extensible and highly configurable templates to implement each organization's specific internal processes and practices; and
  • A personalized home page tailored to the information needs of each project member

ProjExec 3.0 for IBM Workplace includes all of the integrated project management capabilities of the Standard Edition, but is further customized to take advantage of IBM’s collaborative tools such as presence awareness, instant messaging, web conferencing and e-learning. This version further leverages IBM’s WebSphere Portal infrastructure and the innovative Workplace component architecture, making ProjExec a highly extensible and customizable solution compared to competitive offerings. ProjExec 3.0 for IBM Workplace also offers a superior, yet more affordable alternative to Microsoft Project Server and SharePoint Portal, and can also be deployed on Linux platforms.

“As more projects are being created across the business ecosystem, companies are seeking effective ways to solve the challenges arising from fragmented processes, people, information and tools that are utterly essential to communication and collaboration,” said Alex El Homsi, Trilog’s President and CEO. “Trilog’s vision for ProjExec is to provide a secure virtual workplace infrastructure for co-locating distributed project teams across organizational boundaries along with the tools they need to achieve the high productivity levels that one can typically expect from physical co-location.”

ProjExec 3.0 is extremely administrator friendly and virtually eliminates administrative overhead and disruption to an existing IT infrastructure. Traditional enterprise project management tools can be cumbersome to IT administration. ProjExec 3.0 overcomes this obstacle by introducing Site Manager, a new capability that simplifies the hosting and management of multiple sites with multiple projects in a single role-based portal, regardless of whether users are pre-registered in the corporate directory.

"While ProjExec 3.0 is ideal for multi-enterprise project collaboration, its uses are by no means limited to projects spanning time zones, continents and cultures," said Ravinder Shan, Trilog's Vice President of Corporate Development." While a typical deployment of ProjExec 3.0 can be used for collaborative government projects involving multiple agencies and outside contractors, the same solution can be used within a single global enterprise. ProjExec has also proven to be a very effective solution for outsourced/multi-sourced IT projects that involve a collection of vendors, suppliers and contractors.”

Trilog will be unveiling ProjExec 3.0 at the Project Summit New England, October 26 – 27, 2005, at the Marriott in Burlington, MA on the Grand Ballroom exhibition floor. CEO Alex El Homsi will be speaking at the event about “The Challenges of Collaboration and Communication in Virtual Projects,” on Oct. 27 at 1:45 p.m. EDT in the Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Hampshire rooms.
