Press Release (ePRNews.com) - BOSTON - Aug 21, 2017 - Today, BrightWork announced the latest release of their project portfolio management solution for SharePoint. Supporting their mission to deliver gorgeous simplicity to their software, the latest version of BrightWork is all about performance and ease-of-use to make it as easy as possible for customers to successfully manage projects and portfolios with SharePoint.
“At BrightWork, our mission is to deliver a gorgeously simple project management solution based on SharePoint, to make project management success a reality for every organization,” says Éamonn McGuinness, CEO of BrightWork. According to Fintan Manning, VP of Engineering, ‘Usability is the first pillar of performance. With that in mind, we have focused on several new features and improvements to existing features to enhance usability and performance.’ He adds, ‘These features will make it easier to get started with projects quickly as well as when evolving your implementation over time.’
Key highlights of the new BrightWork release include:
The latest release introduces a new style of charting, offering a more modern and elegant look and feel. In addition to the improved visualization, the charts are now interactive with hover-over functionality, the ability to highlight particular data sets, turn chart items on and off in the legend. Other enhancements include the ability to highlight segments, zoom and pan, polar and 3D formats, and general readability.
Several BrightWork reporter web parts now have a distinctive ‘working on it’ icon as the web part loads or is refreshed. This provides a smoother and more seamless user experience when transitioning to a new page. This change gives users more feedback, so they feel progress and avoid the temptation to click the link again and start all over.
Customers need to pull lots of data from multiple sites and multiple lists, together in a central report quickly especially as their project implementation evolves. This release introduces a new cache, the open Work Cache, to help address this problem. The Work Cache makes it easier to report on multiple projects quickly. The Project Cache, available in previous versions, now supports real-time updating of project data. Also, the addition of new views – All Projects, Open Projects, and My Projects, allows for easier filtering and faster rendering.
The previous release of BrightWork brought a big update to the “Create Project Process”, introducing a more configurable step-by-step wizard. The new release brings additional configuration options adding more polish to a very important feature in BrightWork. The new default settings include a unique URL generated from the project title, Project Manager defaulting to the logged-in user, and automatic template or project loading when selecting a site to base the project upon. These new configuration settings allow for less clicks when creating projects meaning faster project creation.
When it comes to end-user adoption, role based training is paramount. The new option to create a training zone on install (or later) creates a full site collection with training templates, a training area, and a sample area to facilitate testing, training and exploration.
