Bamboo Solutions, a leading provider of applications meant to boost the use of Microsoft SharePoint, recently announced the development of a compatible project management application. Bamboo expects its application to help organizations boost their project management capabilities regardless of their experience with SharePoint.
With the number of companies implementing SharePoint on the rise, add-ons aimed at boosting its utility are especially important to improve return-on-investment. Like most SharePoint applications, it addresses a concern raised by a number of users who wanted to improve collaboration between employees working on similar projects.
"As with the customer feedback that has driven the development of PM Central since its inception, customer requests for a SharePoint 2010-compatible PM Central offering led to this latest release," Wes Bryan, product manager for Bamboo Solutions, said. "SharePoint 2010 users want to extend the enhanced out-of-the-box project management features."
A survey recently conducted by the Association for Information and Imaging Management found 22 percent of SharePoint users require every employee to use the program in some way. The development of applications aimed at making it easier to use will likely make it an even easier tool for companies to implement.
