NEW YORK, April 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- International Institute for Learning, Inc. (IIL) and PIEmatrix, Inc. announced today the formation of a strategic alliance that will integrate IIL's Unified Project Management Methodology (UPMM), a set of comprehensive web-based tools for managing projects, with the PIEmatrix business execution platform, an online enterprise project management software and portfolio dashboard suite. The combined solution will integrate a project management methodology with scheduling and execution software, eliminating the issues of having to transfer data between two separate programs thereby increasing effectiveness and efficiency.
IIL's UPMM provides a comprehensive project management methodology that can be used throughout an organization to create a unified and best-practices-based means of managing projects. By integrating this with the PIEmatrix platform, project managers will be able to not only share a common methodology needed to most effectively execute a project, but also will have the tools needed to track progress, collaborate and integrate all other project business processes.
"Along with education and integrity, innovation is a cornerstone commitment for IIL, and we are excited to partner with PIEmatrix in bringing this integrated platform to our clients," said President, Founder and CEO of IIL, E. LaVerne Johnson. "By joining IIL's UPMM with PIEmatrix's software, project managers will have the best possible roadmap to execute, track and deliver on their projects at both the individual and enterprise level."
"Project management offices will find this solution perfect for fostering project management best practices," said Paul Dandurand, CEO of PIEmatrix. "The alliance will help medium to large companies drive stronger performance with real-time and dynamic project management methodology. This can have a huge impact on the end-customer's bottom line."
The combined cloud solution is made for IT, professional services, product development, operations, marketing, and other departments that implement projects across an enterprise. IIL will offer PIEmatrix licenses and provide implementation and support as part of its suite of highly acclaimed project management products and services.
