NEW YORK, June 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Microdesk, a leading provider of business and technology consulting services to help firms successfully plan, design, build and operate land and buildings, today unveiled its new PATH solution portfolio for Oracle's Primavera P6, a high performance project management tool. Built specifically for the engineering and construction industries, Microdesk's PATH solutions are designed to help users quickly and efficiently deploy Primavera P6 – cutting the typical implementation time in half.
Comprised of three different PATH solutions, Microdesk's new product suite leverages the company's deep experience working with engineering and construction firms of all sizes to deploy project management solutions. As such, each PATH includes installation services, pre-recorded video tutorials and an in-depth training program with step-by-step navigation guides designed to simplify installation and ensure deployment success. In addition, the PATH solutions yield a cost savings of between $5,000 and $15,000 as compared with custom installation.
Available exclusively from Microdesk, the three PATH options for Oracle Primavera P6 include:
- Professional Scheduler PATH – Pre-configured for design and construction project use, this PATH is designed for the single-user needing a basic solution to manage their own solutions
- Professional Workgroup PATH – Using Oracle Primavera P6 Project Portfolio Management (PPM), this PATH is for the internal project team that needs access via a centrally shared database to a desktop solution that allows for schedule management and executive oversight
- Enterprise Foundations PATH – For Oracle Primavera Enterprise Project Portfolio Management (EPPM) users, this PATH is an immediate, streamlined first step for organizations looking to grow into an enterprise solution that provides comprehensive tools for managing complex project schedules
"As a traditional Oracle Primavera purchase doesn't include support materials, we learned quickly that we needed a pre-designed solution like the Microdesk Enterprise Foundations PATH in order to protect our investment," said Mike Clark, senior project manager at Shawmut Design and Construction. "The PATH provided us with a ready-to-employ solution geared specifically towards our industry and project types, helping us enjoy the full benefits of Primavera P6 and giving us greater visibility and flexibility as we grow our corporate project management processes."
"While today's engineering and construction firms have access to some of the most advanced project management solutions on the market, they can be extremely difficult to implement without the proper training and installation support," said Michael DeLacey, President, Microdesk. "Using our new PATH solutions, organizations can be ready to start leveraging the cost-savings and efficiency savings of a powerful project management solution the day the technology is installed."
