31 March 2010 – South African Financial Services giant benefits from Microsoft’s project portfolio solution with AccTech Systems

Microsoft’s leading Enterprise Project Management partner in Africa, AccTech Systems, has successfully rolled out Microsoft’s Project Portfolio Management solution at one of South Africa’s largest financial services organisations. In a rapid deployment process, AccTech managed to deliver the complete solution in only four weeks.

“We approached Microsoft to recommend an implementation partner with advanced project portfolio experience in the financial services industry,” says the organisation’s Group CIO. “We have been very pleased with the recommendation as AccTech’s accurate and rapid deployment services resulted in the delivery of a very successful IT project.”

Microsoft Office Project Portfolio Server helps organisations realise their potential by identifying, selecting, managing, and delivering portfolios that align with their strategic priorities. For this customer it now allows for up to the minute accurate reports on the status of both internal and external projects, a feature that empowers management to rather spend time on driving customer value, than on trying to manually manage the various projects.

“We are currently in the second phase of the implementation,” says Tertius Zitzke, Chief Executive Officer at AccTech Systems. “The advanced dash-boarding capabilities being delivered in this phase of the implementation will even further enhance their executive’s overview of the various projects. With the launch of Project 2010 around the corner a complete migration to the new platform is also planned for the fourth quarter of this year,” says Zitzke.
