Daptiv PPM Helps Owens Community College Increase Efficiency in Project Management and Reporting

Ohio-Based Community College Uses SaaS Software to Reduce Time Spent Reporting by 80 Percent

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - October 14, 2009) - Daptiv, the on-demand leader in collaborative business software, announced today that Owens Community College has implemented Daptiv PPM to drastically streamline the project management process and increase communication throughout departments. Founded in 1965 and based in Toledo and Findlay, Ohio, Owens Community College serves more than 45,000 credit and non-credit students each year. Owens has implemented Daptiv's Software-as-a-Service project management solution in various departments across both locations in order to better track and manage work and simplify project operations.

Prior to Daptiv, Owens tracked projects and managed the IT department with spreadsheet-based applications. Owens decided it needed a more efficient process and began looking for a solution that could update the project management process, offered better tracking insight and would provide flexibility. The college implemented Daptiv in July 2008 and immediately began reducing the amount of time spent generating and communicating project reports by 80 percent.

Today, Daptiv PPM is used across departments and locations to manage a variety of projects such as contract and grant renewals. With Daptiv Work Intelligence™, which provides auto-generated reports, as well as custom dashboards and analysis -- all on-demand in real-time, Owens has gained insight, reduced time spent creating reports and gained visibility into the tasks that comprise a project. Owens has also utilized Daptiv's customizable Dynamic Applications, which enable the college to create its own Project Request forms that add another layer of visibility and traceability to the process.

"With Daptiv, we've streamlined the project management process and increased awareness across departments," said Scott Coffman, associate director of applications and programming at Owens Community College. "With the reporting and customized application capabilities it has become easier for us to communicate during the process so we can see how goals are being met along the way. The results have been impressive -- we've seen gains of 50 percent in time that used to be allocated to updating old processes. The tools have become a vital part of our operations and have introduced a level of increased efficiency and communication."
