LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 27, 2012) - Sciforma Corporation, the Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) software innovator, today announced a partnership with Yammer Inc., the leading provider of Enterprise Social Networks, to provide an expanded PPM solution integrating a real-time communication and collaboration platform, allowing the latest project information to be easily shared across an entire company.
Through this new integrated platform, companies of all sizes can increase project visibility, communication and collaboration across functions, locations and departments throughout the enterprise. Yammer's integration with Sciforma 4.0 gives companies the opportunity to instantly publish updates to a network of users across an organization whenever an employee creates, modifies, or completes a project. Adding a new "social layer" to Sciforma 4.0 allows faster communication and collaboration among a larger group of users, driving improved project management and more rapid reaction time to address project performance issues.
Sciforma designed its plug-in with Yammer to be simple, user-friendly and flexible. For example, users can choose, in one click, an event such as the initiation, status change or completion of a project to be immediately posted into Yammer's activity stream so that project team members are alerted. "We are extremely pleased to be working with Yammer to help companies share their day-to-day project status information in real time across their entire organization," said Fabien Herelle, VP of Business Solutions at Sciforma. "This kind of rapid sharing of project status generates a collaborative atmosphere, encourages teamwork, and creates a spirit of innovation within the company."
