Clarizen, a provider of collaborative work management software, has added features to increase team efficiency, boost collaboration, and accelerate time to value in the newest version of its cloud-based platform.
The new features include a reporting tool that makes it easier to create company-branded presentations for meetings with multiple stakeholders; a financial planning module to manage and monitor a project’s financial health; and a new library of best practices to help organizations get up and running faster on Clarizen.
The collaborative work management solution provides a full-fledged project planning and execution solution that facilitates collaboration and improves productivity levels so project leaders and their teams can get their work done on-time and on-budget.
Among the enhancements, Clarizen provides a Slide Publisher that features a wizard-based tool for creating branded presentations with project data collected from team members, using the organization’s standard corporate branding and reporting template.
In addition, the new Financial Planning module combines the simplicity of a spreadsheet for data entry with the control and structure that large organizations require for tracking a project’s business impact and financial status at scale, and over time.
The new release also makes it easier to bring project views alive with color and varied formatting options such as rich text, tables, embedded images, multiple text sizes, and hyperlinks. Clarizen’s Project Overview feature lets customers mix key project data inside Clarizen with custom-designed content.
Clarizen is also releasing a new set of IT best practices for delivering successful projects from ideation to execution, including prepared packages of apps that have proven to be best-suited for specific IT use cases.
Users can follow Clarizen’s best practices to manage the entire project lifecycle from request intake through resourcing to project reporting, all with role-based guides on how best to deploy Clarizen.
And finally, Clarizen’s new Excel Import allows companies to quickly migrate their projects from Microsoft Excel to Clarizen, and enables users to work offline, share updatable data with external stakeholders, and bring in data from third-party tools.
The Clarizen Spring 2017 Release is now available at no additional charge to existing Clarizen customers.
The new financial planning module is accessible via a controlled availability program.
