EPM Live Wins THINKstrategies’ Best of SaaS Showplace (BoSS) Award

THINKstrategies, Inc. announced today that EPM Live has been named a winner of the Best of SaaS Showplace (BoSS) Award. This program promotes the measurable business benefits delivered by today’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions.

The BoSS Awards is an ongoing program administered by THINKstrategies’ Cloud Computing Showplace to recognize SaaS companies that are delivering measurable business benefits to specific user organizations. These benefits can include increased sales, lower costs, higher customer satisfaction, faster operations and greater profitability.

Part of Upland Software, EPM Live is a work management platform that transforms the way organizations manage projects and do their day-to-day work. Built on project and portfolio management (PPM) cost saving disciplines, EPM Live offers a full work management application marketplace that allows organizations to extend their PPM capabilities to all areas of their business regardless of size, work type or maturity.

A specific example of the measurable business benefits derived from EPM Live’s Cloud-based solution is PIH Health, a regional healthcare provider, which needed to digitize its patient health records required by physicians. By leveraging EPM Live, PIH was able to improve Portfolio Visibility, Team Collaboration and Resource Management. Specifically, PIH was able to run 10% more projects a year due to its improved on-time completion rates and better project planning capabilities.

Based on this customer success story, EPM Live has been named a BoSS Award winner.

“We are honored to be named as a Best of Software- as- a Service Showplace Award winner and recognized for the measurable business benefits we are delivering to our customers,” said Joe Larscheid, SVP of Products for Upland Software and General Manager of the EPM Live product line. “This award is a true affirmation of our vision to meet the needs of a changing market that continues to realize the power SharePoint and EPM Live bring to the rapidly growing PPM and Work Management space.”

“Managing projects in a cost-effective fashion is essential in today’s challenging business environment,” stated Jeffrey M. Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, the strategic consulting firm which conceived and administers the Cloud Computing Showplace. “EPM Live provides powerful PPM capabilities which enable organizations to better coordinate their increasingly dispersed staff so they can perform their project responsibilities more successfully.”
