Los Gatos (Feb 5th, 2014). Sciforma, a world leader in web-based project management and project portfolio solution development, has unveiled Sciforma 6.0. In this mobile era, with more companies going global, Sciforma 6.0 meets these ever changing needs.
Sciforma 6.0: Tablets, Smartphones, and Thin Clients
Sciforma 6.0 has given the mobile world access to their projects via tablets and smartphones. Now, users can access the following on the go:
- expended project hours
- remaining tasks and expected effort
- key portfolio indicators
These new features exist thanks to Sciforma changing technology to HTML5 and the thin client. These changes. These changes do not alter the product’s graphical or set-up capabilities. This new technology allows for enhanced personalized customization of dashboards and the input screen for timesheet taking advantage of specific user configurations.
Currently, the new technology allows users to perform about 70% of their everyday tasks from a tablet or “thin client” computer, thanks to Sciforma 6.0’s HTML5 client. However, in the very near future, Sciforma aims to provide 100% of users with this possibility.
Sciforma has reworked and rethought the design of their solution with modern, uncluttered and highly intuitive screens. The migration mechanisms improved, making the upgrade to Sciforma 6.0 very simple.
Sciforma 6.0: Performance and Users in Distant Locations
Special attention falls on the usage patterns of global businesses, with teams spread out over several continents, sometimes in remote countries with low speed connections. Sciforma 6.0 is designed to be accessible to all. Therefore, it takes advantage of the latest advances in network traffic optimization and response time acceleration.
In addition, the processing and consolidation of large amounts of data (several thousand or even tens of thousands of projects, resources, etc.) have been accelerated by the use of the latest tools.
Sciforma 6.0: Cost Management, SSO, and Compatibility with Microsoft Project
In addition to the technological innovations, Sciforma 6.0 also improves upon functional developments. This includes cost management with the ability to publish financial schedules, differentiate between the “OpEx” and “CapEx” of a project, cost center consolidation, and improved implementation of these features.
Sciforma 6.0 incorporates SSO (Single Sign-On): a feature allowing users to log in once and gain access to all systems without future login prompting. Major developments and improvements in its peer exchange capability have been implemented, especially with Microsoft Project. Among these improvements is the read/write compatibility between these two tools for information that they share in common. Sciforma 6.0 lets you exchange your planning schedules with your customers or suppliers, even if they work with another project management system.
