Trilog Group delivers Social Project Management to IBM Lotus customers

ORLANDO, FL – 31 Jan 2011: Trilog Group, winner of the IBM Lotus Award for Enabling Innovation through Social Collaboration in 2011 and the IBM Lotus Award for Best Total Lotus Software Solution in 2009 and 2010, today announced the general availability of ProjExec 5.0, a Social Project Management solution for the IBM social collaboration platform. This latest release from Trilog Group features major technology advancements to deliver a truly social project experience without sacrificing essential project management practices and rigor.   

ProjExec 5.0 leverages a state-of-the-art Web 2.0 user experience in its Project Wall, a Trilog Group innovation that integrates a familiar social networking paradigm similar to Facebook directly with core business processes. ProjExec 5.0 is being highlighted at Lotusphere 2011 at pedestals 609-610 in the Product Showcase exhibition hall.

Trilog Group's Social Project Management solution enables organizations to execute projects better and smarter using time-tested and rigorous project management methodologies fully integrated with a social dimension that fosters innovation, promotes participation, knowledge sharing and smarter collaboration.  ProjExec 5.0 features seamless integration with IBM Lotus social software and the entire IBM Lotus technology platform, including IBM Lotus Quickr 8.5, IBM Lotus Connections 3.0, IBM Lotus Sametime 8.5.1, IBM Lotus Domino 8.5.1, IBM Lotus Notes 8.5.2 and IBM WebSphere Portal 7. 

ProjExec 5.0 includes integration with Lotus Connections Profiles, which allows project managers to locate qualified and available resources in Lotus Connections directly from the project planning tool. Integration with Lotus Connections business cards allows users to access Lotus Connections from within their ProjExec environment. Project users can also initiate Activities in Lotus Connections directly from project work items such as tasks or issues to collaborate with others who are not project members. Project Wall offers powerful project micro-blogging and event aggregation capabilities that streamlines communications on multiple projects simultaneously and provides total visibility across project activities and project-related information.

"Social Project Management is not an attempt to change the discipline of project management," said Alex Homsi, President and CEO, Trilog Group. "Rather, we're empowering people by managing the "social side" of projects and making the experience more enjoyable. Project Wall does just that. It gets people engaged and makes their work more observable, resulting in better project outcomes."
