Cloud project management firm Clarizen has announced the spring 2015 release of the Clarizen V6 software.
The company, which is based in the US and is expanding rapidly in the UK with customers ranging from the NHS to BarclayCard and Hays Recruitment, updates its software every three months.
The latest release includes a number of new features, most notably a reports and dashboards feature that provides insights on key data without the need for third-party business analytics providers.
The graphics showing the data can be shared with other staff members and clients outside the organisation, even if they do not have a Clarizen account, the company said.
Clarizen announced the details at the first [email protected] conference in San Francisco, where the company also revealed an extension of its collaboration with Box for document hosting.
This means that staff working on Clarizen for project management can provide access to content hosted in Box, so that the necessary documents can be accessed easily without “cluttering up” the Clarizen platform.
Russell Henley, head of strategic accounts for the UK at Clarizen, said that the company, which began operating in the UK 18 months ago, is seeing good growth from firms looking to bring collaboration, project management and social services together.
"Most businesses have islands of activity with information in different systems that doesn’t link together so people don’t know who is doing what,” he said.
“Clarizen brings this together so people get a single view into their project management and who is working on what to help improve efficiencies.”
The company has around 50 clients in the UK with over 5,000 staff using the platform.
One major customer is the NHS. Alison Foster, quality director for NHS Aylesbury Vale Clinical Commissioning Group, explained that moving to Clarizen had brought several benefits.
Specifically, she said that it had helped staff forced together as part of the move from Primary Care Trusts to Clinical Commissioning Groups in 2013 by giving them a single platform to work on.
