VPMi Standard Is a Perfect Entry Point for Organizations That Are Ready for Project Management

Latest Web-Based Solution From VCS Offers Sensible Project Management to Organizations Suffering From Project Chaos

ST. LOUIS, MO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 17, 2007 -- VCS, a leading provider of web-based project management solutions, announced the latest release of its simple, sensible and supportable web-based project management solution, VPMi Standard.

VPMi Standard is designed to efficiently meet collaboration objectives of organizations that have outgrown spreadsheets or other rudimentary project management tools.

"Anyone thinking about project management for the first time wants the ability to quickly get things done without spending weeks working around an overly complex solution to satisfy their customers," said Nick Matteucci, co-founder and partner of VCS. "VPMi Standard was built to alleviate the project chaos between teams, customers, and suppliers. It is the glue that binds a complete project team and enables efficient collaboration."

VPMi Standard leverages the core project and resource management features of the VPMi Professional solution, which has over eight years of demonstrated success in some of the most challenging Global 1000 environments. VPMi Standard offers essential project management tools, including workflow, timesheets, portals, and configurable reporting that downloads directly into Microsoft Project, Word, and Excel.

"As an organization first embraces project management, VPMi Standard offers a perfect entry point," said Jeff Pupillo, co-founder and partner of VCS. "At its core, VPMi Standard is an extremely easy-to-use web-based solution for project teams to collaboratively manage all of their work, resources, and customers in one central location."

For small organizations that do not want the worry of outgrowing a project management tool, VPMi Standard offers a simple upgrade path to more robust project portfolio management (PPM) functionality.

"Project organizations moving from spreadsheet, schedule, time sheet, and e-mail environments to a centralized project and portfolio management world typically find themselves ill-prepared," said Daniel B. Stang, principal research analyst, Gartner, in his December 13, 2006 report entitled 'Invest in Processes and Process Automation for PPM.' "Successful PPM requires investments in internal PPM processes, as well as PPM process automation using technology."


Since 1998, VCS has delivered web-based project, program, and portfolio management solutions. The company's flagship SaaS solution, VPMi, revolutionizes client, team and executive collaboration. With VCS products and services, organizations can increase customer satisfaction, eliminate project waste, and improve profits through the proven power of the web and simple, sensible, and supportable project management.
