With no software to download or hardware to acquire, ProjExec Live eliminates many of the hurdles that can complicate project collaboration for virtual teams across organizational boundaries. Subscription-based ProjExec Live makes projects social to deliver project success, at anytime, with anyone, from anywhere.

ProjExec Live improves effectiveness and productivity for all project constituencies by delivering secure, role-based tools and capabilities that seamlessly integrate with IBM's premier social collaboration platform, IBM SmartCloud for Social Business. The solution enables project managers to manage the entire project lifecycle according to PM standard methodology and best practices.

ProjExec Live is the first of its kind social project management solution to be delivered through the IBM SmartCloud for Social Business with a low annual subscription fee starting at $99 per user (less than $9 per user per month). It seamlessly integrates and leverages IBM social collaboration services including Profiles, Activities, Communities, Files and Web Conferencing to deliver the most effective social project collaboration experience on the market today.

  • + Business problem

    Project teams often consist of employees from one location, partners from another, and suppliers, customers and stakeholders scattered well beyond the enterprise with no time zone, geography or tool sets in common. Cost, complexity, and size can stand in the way of effective project collaboration across distributed teams. ProjExec Live delivers secure, reliable and affordable social project collaboration quickly and easily.

  • + Business opportunity

    Distributed project teams need a secure, reliable and affordable project management and collaboration platform that is easy to use and enables project teams and stakeholders to stay connected anytime, from anywhere. Many organizations today rely on a combination of home-grown solutions and tools such as e-mail, word documents and spreadsheets to conduct multi-enterprise project execution. These tools take time to assemble and require project managers to spend additional time identifying, assembling and locating information. Small to mid-sized organizations in particular lack the resources required to acquire, deploy and maintain comprehensive project management solutions. Readily available through the IBM SmartCloud, ProjExec Live provides a state-of-the-art social project management solution powered by social collaboration tools from IBM and compliant with PMI standard methodologies and best practices. The risk and complexity associated with typical collaborative project management application is reduced. No learning curve, no lengthy deployments and no expensive on-going support, upgrades and maintenance. Just instant value. The flexible and affordable subscription plans offered with ProjExec Live include a tiered pricing structure to fit all types and sizes of organizations, starting at $99 per user/year for ProjExec Live and $199 per user/year for the full featured ProjExec Live Enterprise.
