IPMA Chooses New Collaboration Tool

IPMA Chooses New Collaboration Tool

IPMA, the International Project Management Association, has announced the selection of Projectplace as global collaboration and web-based project management tool for the next two years. The main reasons behind the decision were Projectplace’s usability and communication attributes and its ability to allow IPMA to communicate effectively across all 55 member associations.

IPMA is recognised as a leading authority on competent project, programme and portfolio management (PPPM). IPMA ensures that project and programme management best practice are widely known and appropriately applied at all levels of both public and private sector organisations.

Projectplace was chosen by IPMA to enable better collaboration and communication within IPMA’s Boards, project teams, and virtual activities.”Quick, easy and secure access to all documents relating to the activities of boards are mandatory for the efficient use of voluntary board members’ scarce and valuable time” says Ed Naughton, a member of the Education and Training Board.

Areas covered in IPMA’s evaluation of the tool included features and capabilities, general user satisfaction, convenience and responsiveness, professionalism of the support hotline, comparison with other tools, and the possibility to provide recommendations regarding Projectplace’s further tool development.

“IPMA has looked at the various tools in place among the best performing national member associations of IPMA. We found the best solution to enable easier and more efficient ways of collaborating across all members associations. After evaluating Projectplace it was obvious that this tool could best fulfill our needs in document and project management. The tool is not only easy to learn and use, it also meets IPMA’s security requirements.”

Founded in 1965 and registered in Switzerland, the International Project Management Association (IPMA) is the world’s first project management professional organization. IPMA’s prior name was INTERNET, for over 20 year, before we gave up that name for the benefit of the WorldWideWeb. IPMA is an international federation of 55 national PM societies in Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and the Americas. IPMA offers an International Competence Baseline standard, a four-level project manager certification, a unique Project Excellence Awards programme, expert seminars and global knowledge. IPMA’s annual world congress is one of the most important meetings of the world’s project management experts and leaders each year. Additional information about IPMA is available at www.ipma.ch
