Matan MasterLink gives Project Hosts' Custom Cloud users complete visibility over their programs and mega projects through advanced project integration capabilities.
For Project Server 2013 based private clouds, such as Project Hosts' PPM Custom Cloud, The MasterLink 2013 app has hit a definite "sweet spot" among customers with larger-scale or complex projects. These clients are typically in the pharmaceutical, semiconductor and defense industries, along with many government agencies. MasterLink 2013 is a powerful solution designed especially for operations requiring management of cross project relationships. Ideal for new deployments and for customers upgrading to Project Server 2013, the solution can dramatically improve the ability to manage the program and deliver a more accurate and realistic plan. Both project managers and program managers can create various types of links from their project plan to other connected projects, and analyze their impact on the entire program status.
Pen Stout, Senior PPM consultant at Versatile, commented on their PPM Custom Cloud deployment that includes MasterLink: "We are contracted on a long term engagement to provide project and program management consulting to a major software developer. The program requires coordinating the activities of at least a dozen different projects being performed by internal and external teams. We could not provide the level of visibility necessary without use of Matan's MasterLink. You should have seen the smile on the Program Manager's face when she first realized she could review the status of all deliverables on demand in one consolidated, interactive view. And the ability to see the cross project critical paths for each deliverable, on demand via PWA, is essential to effective rapid response to emerging roadblocks. Thank you for your excellent products."
