Clarizen, a vendor of on-demand, online project management software, has announced Clarizen 3.0, its Software-as-a-Service collaboration and project execution offering.
Company officials say Clarizen 3.0 is designed to help teams manage project details, "regardless of where each team member is located." It has issue and expense management, and improved budget management and Gantt chart features. Pricing begins at $29.95 a month.
With data showing that SaaS (News - Alert) usage doubled in 2008 and is rapidly becoming a mainstream business model in 2009, Clarizen officials say, they feel that this release’s enhancements "continue to position it as a comprehensive collaboration tool."
The product's features include separate capacity for customers to manage business issues with clients, partners and employees by using technical support to automate the lifecycle of a clearly defined issue, and expense reports through time tracking, letting users view hours and associated costs to improve the process of economically reallocating resources, costs and time.
TMC reported that Clarizen signed a Value-Added Reseller agreement with IAAP, a consulting and training company in Latin America focused on project management methodologies, a few months back. The agreement is aimed at improving project execution and collaboration in organizations in Latin America.
Clarizen’s online project management software, C.S. reported, "are simple, easy to use Software as a Service solution that allows organizations to manage time, budgets, teams and people, deadlines and work tasks. SaaS is a technology that helps companies to collaborate within their office as well as with their partners, suppliers and customers and focus primarily on their projects. By implementing this technology, IAAP customers can now manage and utilize the application without installing any component in local servers."
"Our partnership with Clarizen allows the IAAP to open new markets and serve our existing clients with an immediate high quality, practical and ready-to-use solution," said José Esterkin, chief executive officer and co-founder of IAAP.
