KeyedIn Solutions, Inc., a SaaS solutions provider and consulting services organization, has announced the launch of KeyedInProjects v5.2, a new release of its cloud-based project management suite, KeyedInProjects.
KeyedInProjects v5.2 includes new-to-market functionality that is available through its SaaS platform or as an on-premise or hosted license. The headline addition is the new Social Collaboration feature that enables project teams to communicate and collaborate within the software and work together using social tools, the company said.
KeyedInProjects v5.2 includes a portfolio of web services that allow for integration with third party finance, CRM, HRIS and other applications while ensuring data integrity and security. A new alerts and notification function is also included in v5.2. Users can configure Alerts to notify them when they or their teams have tasks assigned or overdue. Alerts can be delivered within the software on a new notification tab, or via the user's email system.
A task-based planning tool, which displays projects as a Gantt chart, has been enhanced with an option to display a critical path which can be toggled to red. A new task filter enables only critical path tasks to be displayed giving users visibility into priority activities.
User interface customization - praised by the customer base - has been further improved to increase flexibility of data selection and display. The contract management module has been enhanced to include Billing by Hour.
As KeyedInProjects becomes the project management suite of choice for multi-national operations, multi-lingual support has been enhanced in v5.2. Whatever language the data is held in, users can view the KeyedInProjects screens in any one of eight supported languages.
Languages added in this update include: Spanish, Latin American Spanish, Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese. The company has signaled its intention to develop the high-technology Scandinavian and Baltic markets and expects to add four more languages in the next version, scheduled for release Q1, 2013, the company added.
"KeyedInProjects provides an unbeatable platform for core project management processes. Now, with less formal information flows and communication paths, we're giving our customers another layer of efficiency with the ability to collaborate in real-time," noted Karen Adame, chief product officer at KeyedIn Solutions.
