Viewpath was created with a usability-driven design philosophy to let users easily collaborate with anyone, in any organization. “Although Viewpath has many advanced capabilities, we’re constantly on an ease-of-use mission to streamline online access to project information at any level. We developed a usability yardstick so a new user can learn 90 percent of basic features in 90 minutes or less,” states Carlson. Due to Viewpath’s visual process of managing projects with interactive tools and dashboards, communication among departments drastically improves, and teams can easily test “what-if-scenarios” in scheduling activities and resources. Viewpath has also developed its architecture for the growing influence of big data and heavy payload demands on web services to quickly update interactive graphics on complex scheduling data in large project portfolios.
Over the past few years, a convergence of fast bandwidth, high-performance browsers and cloud platforms has been an inflection point. The flexibility and scalability of Viewpath’s proven solutions are making large enterprises comfortable in moving project teams to the cloud. Additionally, organizations like Viewpath’s feature-rich tools which support both Gantt and Agile practices. The design simplifies cross-project reporting and portfolio management because customers no longer need to divide projects into team-specific silos. Teams just switch between Gantt and Agile views as a user preference.
Well-designed solution with a layered feature stack that appeals to people across the project management spectrum
Viewpath solutions are used on many IT projects, and in new interesting ways. For example, Logitech has used Viewpath for over two years in managing their fastpaced product pipeline and communication within their global supply chain. Another large enterprise, a medical equipment company, deployed Viewpath’s solution to continually coordinate schedules, resources, and budgets on installations of its sophisticated medical equipment in countries around the world.
Viewpath clearly sees that organizations are heading towards more interoperability between evolving web applications and back office system. This presents many future opportunities for Viewpath to use its enterprise-class architecture and powerful Application Programing Interface (API) to extend solutions integration into complimentary areas such as accounting applications.
Surging ahead optimistically, Viewpath “is leading the way in giving organizations easy-to-use online tools that align project tasks, budgets and resources in one complete picture,” concludes Carlson emphatically.
