ProQ, Inc. Launches New Service To Ensure IT Project Team Success

Unique Solution Tackles Persistent Problem of Project Failure

BERKELEY, CA--(Marketwired - May 16, 2017) - ProQ, Inc. today announced the launch of the company and its flagship product, ProQ™ Teamwork. ProQ Teamwork is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution for Enterprise IT project teams that monitors and reports on teamwork progress between service providers and internal IT teams and helps ensure successful project outcomes. ProQ is available directly from ProQ.io, the SAP Store, or from within the Microsoft Azure LifeCycle Services (LCS) environment.

In the past quarter century, research by organizations such as McKinsey & Co. and Standish Group has shown that over half of all enterprise software projects failed to produce their expected value, resulting in the waste of hundreds of millions of IT dollars and an enormous loss of brand equity for customers and vendors alike.

"Despite an incessant drumbeat of public project disruptions and outright failures, a 'culture of mediocrity' is endemic to our industry,'" said Joshua Greenbaum, CEO and Co-founder of ProQ. "It's a highly pervasive problem that plagues both government and the private sector, and it's time to put a stop to it."

ProQ's in-depth research with key participants in over 3,500 IT projects confirms what numerous independent studies have shown -- that teamwork is one of the most important factors in project success, and that deficiencies in teamwork are a key source of project friction and failure. At the heart of ProQ Teamwork is a simple Weekly Pulse Check process that provides teamwork status visibility -- via a Weekly Pulse Analysis -- to any stakeholder, from team and steering committee members to the CXO suite, who needs assurance that their critical project is on track.

"We designed ProQ's unique methodology to provide 'insurance' for any type of project," said Michael Doane, ProQ Chief Strategist and Co-founder. "It provides a new, and now indispensable, complement to the standard project management triangle of budget, scope, and schedule."

"ProQ fits perfectly in a client/consultant project environment relationship, especially on software implementations," said Salvador Sanchez, product manager at Aryzta, a global food products company based in Zurich, Switzerland. "ProQ is a direct, summarized and practical tool for getting a quick sense of the project's condition."

"I have been on 35 large scale implementation projects and have never seen a tool which measures this crucial teamwork aspect from both the customer and consulting side on a timely basis," said Jarret Pazahanik, Managing Partner of EIC Experts, a human resource management consultancy. "ProQ clearly provides transparent intelligence to assure that projects stay on track."
