Forum One Selects Cloud-Based Daptiv PPM for Visibility and Insight Into Project Execution

SaaS-Based PPM Solution Keeps Forum One's Emphasis on Its Clients and the Bottom Line, Offering Greater Profitability and Effective Project Portfolio Management

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - Oct 3, 2012) -  Daptiv, the on-demand leader in project portfolio management software, today announced that Forum One (www.forumone.com), a leading provider of web and mobile strategy, user experience, and application development, has chosen Daptiv PPM to provide greater visibility into planning, scheduling and executing projects across its organization.

As Forum One has continued to expand and take on more clients, it soon became apparent that its existing "home grown" solution for managing project resources, finance, invoicing and other common tasks was fast becoming insufficient. Due to its growing business, Forum One was struggling to manage resources effectively across existing and new projects. The services delivery team had little visibility into the sales pipeline and this made resource planning very challenging. Implementing Daptiv PPM allowed Forum One to integrate with Salesforce CRM, providing real-time visibility into their sales pipeline and allowing the services delivery team to anticipate resource requirements in advance.

As a professional services company, Forum One wanted to keep its staff focused on delighting its clients rather than on overhauling its in-house project management solution. Daptiv PPM's SaaS-based model was a critical advantage eliminating the need to install or manage the software onsite, and enabling monthly updates to occur automatically. Daptiv PPM also has the ability to effectively scale, which helps the firm better manage resources across projects and a growing number of employees and contractors. Daptiv's product team worked closely with Forum One to ensure the organization was continually evolving and tailoring the tool to support their customer's changing needs.

"One thing that stood out about Daptiv PPM was its flexibility to accommodate our unique business model and way of working," said Joe Pringle, managing director for Forum One. "Daptiv has helped us to have a much more mature, robust way to measure and report on our whole portfolio of projects at any time."

"Forum One is a great use case of a professional services organization that's putting its attention squarely where it needs to be -- on its clients -- rather than getting bogged down by managing and maintaining software applications," said Ian Knox, vice president of products and marketing for Daptiv. "As business needs change, enterprises like Forum One can be confident that Daptiv's flexibility and ease of use will help to keep them competitive by offering visibility and insight into project execution."
