Los Gatos (June 26th, 2012). Leading PPM software innovator Sciforma today announced a partnership with Yammer Inc., the leading provider of Enterprise Social Networks. This collaboration will expand the PPM solution by integrating a real-time communication and collaboration platform. As a result, their users can more easily share the latest project information across the entire company.

Through this new integrated platform, companies of all sizes can increase project visibility, communication, and collaboration throughout the enterprise. Yammer’s integration with Sciforma 4.0 gives companies the opportunity to instantly publish updates to a network of users across an organization whenever an employee creates, modifies, or completes a project. Adding a new “social layer” to Sciforma 4.0 allows faster communication and collaboration among a larger group of users. As such, it intends to drive improved project management and more rapid reaction time to address project performance issues.

Sciforma and Yammer: a collaborative goal

Sciforma designed its plug-in with Yammer to be simple, user-friendly and flexible. For example, users can choose, in one click, an event such as the initiation, status change or completion of a project to be immediately posted into Yammer’s activity stream so that project team members are alerted.

“We are extremely pleased to be working with Yammer. In doing so, we hope to help companies share their day-to-day project status information in real time across their entire organization,” said Fabien Herelle, VP of Business Solutions at Sciforma. “This kind of rapid sharing of project status generates a collaborative atmosphere and encourages teamwork. Better yet, it creates a spirit of innovation within the company.”

The Sciforma 4.0 with Yammer PPM solution is available now. Please contact your local Sciforma representative for more information or visit www.sciforma.com.
