PROJECT OFFICE AND PSA SOFTWARE
Once the sale is made, the next step for many organizations is to implement what they just sold. Aplicor's Project Office is designed to organize client fulfillment projects, internal projects or the series of tasks to get a new client into production or utilization with your solution. The Project Office is a secured extranet site which acts as a central depository for project related documentation and information as well as provides a vehicle for team communication, collaboration and 24 by 7 project participation. The Project Office facilitates a dispersed project team charged with operating in unison from multiple locations or in different time zones. We have found that using a tool which accommodates Internet access from any location and shares a single centralized information repository is a great facilitation resource in keeping everybody on the same page at the same time.

SUPPORTING DECENTRALIZED & EXTENDED PROJECT TEAMS
Because the Project Office is a secured Extranet, you can provide access to people outside of your organization or immediate project team, such as your client's personnel or independent consultants, and grant them just the permissions you desire.
The Project Office maintains an executive dashboard for all projects, select projects or individual projects. A project manager or participant may then drill-down to view each project's work plans, project teams, schedules, news and updates, events, forums, document library, issue tracker and much more.
In addition to maintaining all project related information in a centralized depository, the Project Office facilitates project-based disciplines and critical success factors such as project planning with revision control, execution with tracking and measurement, and project management, change management and risk management methodologies. Analysis of progress, performance, schedules, critical paths and risk synergize to facilitate project success.The Project Office can further organize a systematic approach, a specific management discipline or a collection of project management best practices in order to reduce risk, improve the performance of a project and allow the project to achieve its predicted results. Project Office is the tool to provide Project Managers and project teams with real time visibility of each project's status, progress, performance and profitability.
