ProjExec® - Social Project Management for IBM Social Business 5.x

Tab navigation

ProjExec® 5.x is the first and only social project management solution built on top of IBM Lotus Social® Software as a seamless extension of the IBM Lotus collaboration platform. Social project management accelerates projects by engaging all possible participants and by making work observable across the entire enterprise social network.

  • Socialize the project experience. What sets ProjExec apart from other project management solutions is that it delivers an enjoyable social experience that people truly want to use. ProjExec turns projects into social business activities with defined goals and commitments. It gets everyone in the enterprise social network involved and enables participants to share and learn by giving them visibility into what others are doing and by freely exchanging ideas and knowledge.
  • Make progress reporting part of the social experience. Reporting is the Achille's heal of most project management solutions because they fail to answer the critical “What's in it for me?” question. ProjExec solves this problem by making progress reporting part of the social experience and transparent to everyone with one click update of task progress – from the Project Wall, email, mobile device, calendar or enterprise portal - to keep project status up to date simply and efficiently.

  • + Business problem

    With workforces that are more dispersed and more mobile than ever, more companies are turning to social business to empower, innovate and make people more effective.  ProjExec is social software in a project context.  The multiple award winning solution lets customers leverage existing investments in the IBM Lotus portfolio and enjoy the benefit of social project management without changing the way they collaborate today.

  • + Business opportunity

    ProjExec lets IBM Lotus® customers operate a single social project management infrastructure for cost savings and improved productivity.

    Improved Productivity. ProjExec customers typically realize significant productivity improvements because the solution brings the social project experience to the place where people work today in the enterprise social collaboration environment, fully integrated with email, calendars, mobile devices and the tools people already use to accomplish work. ProjExec allows users to spend less time in status meetings, less time searching for project information, less time filing status reports and spend more time brainstorming, working together to generate ideas and getting real work accomplished.

    Reduced Operating Costs. ProjExec customers consistently experience double-digit savings on operational project costs as a result of using ProjExec for project collaboration. ProjExec significantly reduces project administrative overhead and lowers project operational costs with a solution that is far more affordable and cost effective than Microsoft Project Server and Microsoft SharePoint Server.

    ProjExec is easily repeatable. Trilog partners with IBM® Business Partners worldwide to deliver the solution in multiple languages (the solution is currently internationalized in 8 languages). Business partners easily install, deploy and customize ProjExec to meet the requirements of customers across the globe.

  • + Return on investment

    ProjExec enables customers to turn social into business value with typical savings such as:

    • 400% productivity improvement in status and time reporting thanks to the centralized consolidation of all project information. All project communication is readily accessible in real time or anytime across the social network.
    • 15% savings on HR project costs, replacing weekly meetings with real-time access to project progress.
    • Central visual measurement of work load that enabled the company to recognize inefficiencies, cut back on the number of meetings and complete project more efficiently to reduce operational costs and project management administrative overhead

  • + Competitive advantage

    ProjExec is truly one-of-a-kind with respect to its ability to demonstrate that Social and Rigor can coexist and augment each other in a professional project management solution.  ProjExec integrates robust collaboration, real-time communication and social networking capabilities in the context of projects together with a complete enterprise-class project management solution designed to help project teams improve project processes and reduce operational project costs. ProjExec is unique in this respect, as most competitors in this space typically compromise rigor in favor of the free form give-and-take of social media – or vice versa.
