Acclaimed Project Management Central and Workflow Conductor optimized to increase interoperability, further extending the native capabilities of Microsoft SharePoint
Bamboo® Solutions, the leading provider of technologies that extend Microsoft® SharePoint®, is proud to announce the release of new versions of two of its most popular product offerings. In addition to introducing leading-edge technological advances, the new releases of Bamboo Project Management CentralTM and Bamboo Workflow Conductor® deliver tighter integration between the two products. Robust with new functionality, Bamboo’s updated product releases are poised to continue to extend SharePoint’s relevance, efficacy, and value of within an organization.
First released in 2010, Bamboo Project Management Central (PM Central) has revolutionized collaborative project management in the SharePoint environment. The much anticipated version 4.0 release of PM Central maintains the core objective that thousands of users have grown to rely on: to provide a comprehensive, turnkey solution for collaborative project management that allows project teams to manage tasks, resources, schedules, and costs more effectively and efficiently. Further increasing the value of PM Central, the new release offers users a wealth of new functions, including the ability to: assign multiple resources to the same task; integrate with Microsoft Project 2010 via PM Central’s Microsoft Project Add-in; change a task’s duration, total work, or due date when resource assignments are changed based on task conditions; archive tasks, issues, risks lists, and their items while retaining history data; and more.
In addition to the just-released PM Central 4.0, Bamboo recently rolled-out version 3.0 of Workflow Conductor. A visionary approach to the field of efficiency management, Workflow Conductor has transformed the method which users automate and manage processes providing a quick and easy solution to streamlining day-to-day processes, without any need for programming or lengthy development cycles. For its version 3.0 release, Workflow Conductor has been amplified with several new, in-demand capabilities including the ability for users to: approve or reject items directly from email; pause a workflow until one of any number of custom, user-defined conditions have been met; create custom user polls, and store an overall outcome based on configurable business logic; and add attachments to Approval/Feedback task notification emails.
“As our customers demand more from SharePoint to meet their business needs, Bamboo recognizes that increasing the interoperability of our products greatly enhances our users’ ability to tackle more complex problems,” said Anders Johnsson, Chairman of the Board for Bamboo Solutions. “As a direct result of this interoperability, customers who own both PM Central and Workflow Conductor realize additional gains in maximizing their investment in SharePoint, a core principle of the Bamboo Way. One prominent example of this enhanced interoperability is the ability to leverage Workflow Conductor’s business logic and process automation in other Bamboo products, which, in PM Central’s case, provides users the ability to seamlessly manage their change management and request management processes, as well as employ custom workflow templates to meet their business challenges.”
PM Central 4.0, Workflow Conductor 3.0, and Bamboo Solutions’ entire product line are available for download via Bamboo’s online store. A no-cost 30-day trial is available for all Bamboo products, and free product webinars and public and/or private sandbox environments are also available for product evaluation. Additionally, when you decide to invest in Bamboo technologies, Bamboo offers a full complement of services covering installation, configuration, training, and support to ensure that the design, deployment, and end user adoption of your solution is successful.
