DCV Partners With R3D: R3D Consulting Offers its Clients DCV's INVE$TFOLIO(C) Solution for Managing Their Project Portfolios

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - July 12, 2011) - Montreal firm DCV & Associates, a leader in corporate performance management solutions, has entered into a partnership with the Quebec Division of management and information technology company R3D Consulting. This alliance will allow R3D to use the INVE$TFOLIO© Suite for its investment portfolios management, projects, programs and contracts management, and it will be the integrator of DCV's investment project management solution INVE$TFOLIO© for an initial period of two years. With this partnership, the two companies will work closely together to help R3D's clients take full advantage of this state-of-the-art solution.

INVE$TFOLIO© is a software solution used to optimize the process of planning, selecting and prioritizing investment projects within an organization. Developed by DCV and marketed for three years, the solution allows users to consider and analyze the many factors that affect the issues, objectives, profitability and monitoring of the various projects of an organization. By ensuring that these are optimally selected and managed, INVE$TFOLIO© makes it possible to harmonize a company's investment portfolio with its business strategies and governance objectives, while at the same time achieving savings in the order of 5% to 20% of total investments. In addition, INVE$TFOLIO© is available in software as a service (SaaS) mode, making the solution easy to implement and very affordable.

"This partnership adds undeniable value to our investment portfolios, projects, programs and contract management service," said Claude Levasseur, Executive Vice-President, Quebec Division, R3D Consulting. Among other benefits for our clients, the INVE$TFOLIO© suite will greatly assist government organizations in the implementation of the processes required under the new Bill 133 on governance and management of information resources. INVE$TFOLIO© will also be very useful internally for optimizing the management of our own projects."

"We are very pleased to be partnering with a well-established, competent company like R3D," said Christian Vaillancourt, Senior Partner and CEO of DCV & Associates. Together, we will be able to help more organizations take advantage of a technology that is essential for proven governance."
