Microsoft Office Project and Portfolio Management (PPM)

Microsoft PPM improves decision making through improved insights and monitoring. By focusing on business strategy and the processes of project management (such as schedule- and resource management, cost management, portfolio management, reporting and workflows) it maximizes the use of resources and enhances company efficiency.
- Extensive expert knowledge and years of experience enable successful customer solutions.
- Delivery of customized solutions by comprehensive requirements analysis.
- As Microsoft’s Global Systems Integrator partner with “Gold Competency” status we guarantee the highest quality in delivery and support.
