Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom, 2009/07/17 - Professional Service Automation and Project Portfolio Management Software provider Atlantic Global announce major enhancements to the market-leading solution Atlantic Global OnDemand - Atlantic-EC.com.
Atlantic Global, the specialist integrated business and people management software applications provider, today announced enhancements to its flagship Atlantic Global OnDemand software, for the management of people, projects and customer relationship processes through a single fully web-enabled solution.
The latest release of Atlantic Global OnDemand includes landmark enhancements to the system administration, as well as the financial management, time and expense management, project and resource management, strategic planning and customer relationship management (CRM) functionality. One of the most significant enhancements is the introduction of context-driven video tutorials to support the user-base in both the administration and use of the system.
“The key focus of Atlantic Global OnDemand v3 was to provide seamless on-boarding for our customers. To achieve this we have developed a complete suite of Computer Based Training (CBT) materials and user guides. We have also supported this with a new data load tool embedded into the application, enabling customers to easily load all of their data and train out their users without the need for any professional services. This significantly reduces the cost of ownership and improves the Return on Investment “ROI” for our clients” said Eugene Blaine, founder of Atlantic Global PLC.
Atlantic Global OnDemand’s comprehensive suite of business software is designed to manage every aspect of a professional service business. The modular architecture of Atlantic Global OnDemand means that the system can be tailored to address a wide spectrum of business challenges.
“Even if you simply need a system to reclaim VAT on your mileage claims, claim R&D Tax credits or just to accurately recharge time and expense to your clients, the Timesheet & Expense Module alone, can save even a small-to-medium enterprise several thousands of pounds.” said Rupert Hutton, Financial Director at Atlantic Global PLC “As OnDemand can be delivered via the internet, as a service, any business can receive a real and achievable return-on-investment, with a very short pay-back period.”
With all of the Modules activated, OnDemand delivers a full Project Portfolio Management (PPM) solution and has been included in the 2009 Gartner Magic Quadrant for IT Project and Portfolio Management.
“The latest version of OnDemand is the result of over sixteen years of experience in the field of business management systems and close collaboration with blue-chip clients such as GlaxoSmithKline, Aviva Group and Pfizer.” said Paul Gleghorn, Technical Director at Atlantic Global PLC “The result is a PPM solution which enables the adoption of ‘best practice’ in organisations of any size.”
The release of Atlantic Global OnDemand v3.0 raises the bar for streamlined business management systems in the current economy. The new release introduces a breadth of enhancements in a number of key areas:
For instance a New Data Load Tool will give the administrator complete control and flexibility over the importing of reference data, saving significant time and effort in setting-up the system and importing and updating data. Enhanced Microsoft Project® Integration now provides the flexibility to launch the import/export function from both the Gantt and Tabular Planning views available in Atlantic Global OnDemand.
Enhancements to Demand & Supply Resourcing now enables the ‘rolling-up' of estimated Demand (projected effort required for each role type) from a Task-Based Plan and in addition a Project can be flagged to dynamically update Supply (projected effort required for each individual) from Resource Assignments. This will save considerable time in maintaining strategic resource plans and ensures the data is fluid and accurate.
A major new development is the introduction of Context Driven Video Tutorials providing immediate video assistance. Relevant tutorial videos can instantly be accessed by the user whilst they are still in the part of the system where help is needed. This provides a broader and more visual background to that area of the system.
Other new features include Enhanced Financial Analysis, Multiple Cost & Charge Rate Adjustment Tool, Time & Expense Entry Improvements, Project-Based Approvals, Enhancements to Assignment Edit, Weekly Delivery Gantt View and Enhanced CRM+ Actions and Enhanced Reports.
Whether a simple timesheet management system is needed or a fully configured project portfolio solution is required, Atlantic Global OnDemand offers a suite of modules which enables a business to improve efficiency and provide a real-time overview of ongoing performance and profitability.
