Forum One Selects Cloud-Based Daptiv PPM for Visibility and Insight
Into Project Execution 
SaaS-Based PPM Solution Keeps Forum One's Emphasis on Its Clients and
the Bottom Line, Offering Greater Profitability and Effective Project
Portfolio Management 
SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/03/12 --  Daptiv, the on-demand
leader in project portfolio management software, today announced that
Forum One (www.forumone.com), a leading provider of web and mobile
strategy, user experience, and application development, has chosen
Daptiv PPM to provide greater visibility into planning, scheduling
and executing projects across its organization.  
As Forum One has continued to expand and take on more clients, it
soon became apparent that its existing "home grown" solution for
managing project resources, finance, invoicing and other common tasks
was fast becoming insufficient. Due to its growing business, Forum
One was struggling to manage resources effectively across existing
and new projects. The services delivery team had little visibility
into the sales pipeline and this made resource planning very
challenging. Implementing Daptiv PPM allowed Forum One to integrate
with Salesforce CRM, providing real-time visibility into their sales
pipeline and allowing the services delivery team to anticipate
resource requirements in advance. 
As a professional services company, Forum One wanted to keep its
staff focused on delighting its clients rather than on overhauling
its in-house project management solution. Daptiv PPM's SaaS-based
model was a critical advantage eliminating the need to install or
manage the software onsite, and enabling monthly updates to occur
automatically. Daptiv PPM also has the ability to effectively scale,
which helps the firm better manage resources across projects and a
growing number of employees and contractors. Daptiv's product team
worked closely with Forum One to ensure the organization was
continually evolving and tailoring the tool to support their
customer's changing needs.  
"One thing that stood out about Daptiv PPM was its flexibility to
accommodate our unique business model and way of working," said Joe
Pringle, managing director for Forum One. "Daptiv has helped us to
have a much more mature, robust way to measure and report on our
whole portfolio of projects at any time."  
"Forum One is a great use case of a professional services
organization that's putting its attention squarely where it needs to
be -- on its clients -- rather than getting bogged down by managing
and maintaining software applications," said Ian Knox, vice president
of products and marketing for Daptiv. "As business needs change,
enterprises like Forum One can be confident that Daptiv's flexibility
and ease of use will help to keep them competitive by offering
visibility and insight into project execution."
