November 27, 2007

Waltham, MA - Impress Software, the leading provider of packaged integration applications, today announced the development of a new product that will deliver integrated project management between Oracle's Peoplesoft Enterprise Service Automation (ESA) and Microsoft Project and Primavera. Impress is developing the solution in close collaboration with the Peoplesoft ESA and Oracle Fusion middleware teams, as well as with Cardinal Point Solutions, a Peoplesoft ESA implementation partner.

"Service- and project-intensive industries recognize the competitive advantages that can be realized by optimizing project life-cycle processes. That's why so many leading enterprises leverage the program management capabilities of Peoplesoft ESA with the project scheduling capabilities of Microsoft Project and Primavera. Integrating these systems with a reliable, best-practices solution will further improve the operational and financial performance of projects," said Warren Utt, President and CEO of Impress Software.

Impress packaged integration applications are operational in over 75 sites around the globe, providing organizations engaged in enterprise project management and asset management initiatives with a proven, productized integration solution. This new product, which will be an extension of the Impress for EPM product line, will automate cross-system project management processes, enabling companies to:

  • Improve resource utilization
  • Achieve more accurate project tracking and control
  • Make more informed project and portfolio decisions
  • Improve communication throughout the organization
  • Ensure compliance with Sarbanes Oxley and GAAP
  • Maximize cash flow and project profitability


"By leveraging our proven packaged integration approach, PeopleSoft ESA customers will be able to streamline their business processes, while eliminating much of the risk and costs associated with typical custom integration projects," said Utt. A preview of the new product was provided at Oracle OpenWorld on November 13th. Impress participated with Oracle in a presentation, called "The Best of Both Worlds: Program Management with PeopleSoft Enterprise Service Automation and Project Scheduling with Microsoft Project Server."
