Oracle has announced new iPhone apps to streamline communications between project team members in the field and in the office. The new mobile PPM solutions (Oracle’s Primavera P6 Team Member for iPhone and Oracle’s Primavera P6 Team Member Web Interface) enable project managers, project controls professionals, PMO’s, and members of the project team in the field to easily and accurately capture and share information on project status and tasks from their iPhones and tablet computers.
Free to current Primavera P6 EPPM users, the new app is available at the App Store while the new Web interface is available as part of standard maintenance.
By providing the most accurate and recent information directly into project plans, Oracle says these two new mobile PPM offerings help project managers and investors to make informed decisions so that projects can be completed on time and within budget.
By optimizing project communications, P6 Team Member for iPhone and P6 Team Member Web Interface help organizations focus on managing the project delivery and eliminating the time typically required to track down project status updates. Available as part of Oracle’s Primavera P6 Enterprise Portfolio Project Management (EPPM) 8.2, the P6 Team Member Web Interface is optimized to run on most tablet computers or browsers.
Both P6 Team Member for iPhone and P6 Team Member Web Interface enable users to update their status directly into Oracle’s Primavera P6 EPPM or changes can be staged and approved by the project manager.
“An accurate view of project status is critical to the success of any project as it helps mitigate project risks and delays,” said Mike Sicilia, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle’s Primavera Global Business Unit. “By enabling project participants to quickly, easily and conveniently share updates at any time and from anyplace, Oracle’s Primavera P6 Team Member for iPhone and Oracle’s Primavera P6 Team Member Web Interface fundamentally change the way project participants can share information. The new releases are a significant milestone in our commitment to delivering more useful and appealing solutions for wider group of project participants and an important extension to Oracle’s comprehensive portfolio of enterprise project portfolio management solutions.”
