Greenville, SC, May 22, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- PTG, a Microsoft Certified Partner and VMware Enterprise Partner recently implemented a project management solution for the Durham Convention & Visitors Bureau (DCVB) in Durham, North Carolina. Faced with limited resources within a small organization, the DCVB needed a solution for effectively communicating project updates and the ability to keep executive management apprised of project progress in a timely manner. Through a referral source, PTG was brought in and immediately addressed the situation with a solution proposal for integrating SharePoint Server with Microsoft Project. To implement a cost-effective solution, PTG included a detailed project plan and timeline of how SharePoint would work for the DCVB. A custom-developed online tutorial provided by PTG gave the entire DCVB staff access to the new system in a simplified, easy to follow format.
Transition to the new system was seamless and quick. The DCVB team can now monitor and manage projects effectively while measuring progress through visually informative key performance indicators (KPI’s). Team members and executive management are able to see the status of any project at any time.
“PTG listened to us and didn’t force us into a solution that we really didn’t need,” says Keeci Tobias who was the Senior Project Manager for the Durham Convention & Visitors Bureau. “They heard our concerns, interpreted exactly what we needed and delivered a solution that was a perfect fit for the DCVB culture. PTG went beyond the call of duty to ensure a successful transition for us in a professional, timely and caring manner.”
