Wildflower & VCSonline Team to Deploy VirtualEyes SaaS Project Management Software to Federal Market
|January 31, 2012||Filled under releases, United States||
Wildflower Intl. and VCSonline today announced a teaming agreement that grants Wildflower the exclusive rights to VirtualEyes, a Federal Government specific version of the VPMi for SaaS & on-site resource, portfolio, and project management.
Under terms of the agreement Wildflower will continue to enhance, market, and sell VirtualEyes to U.S. Federal customers looking to effectively manage the billions of dollars in contract, program and project management budgets that are expected to get tighter and receive more scrutiny in the months ahead.
“While many will believe we entered this agreement overnight, the truth is VirtualEyes was over four years in the making. Wildflower started using VPMi in 2008 as the third contractor in three years on a billion dollar Federal IT contract. We knew if we wanted to satisfy the customer and keep the business we had to take a radically different approach to contract management and customer satisfaction than those before us. After an exhaustive search of commercial web-based project management tools, we deployed VPMi and started to track every customer order as a repeatable project with workplans, workflow, teams, documents, and issue management,”
“VirtualEyes first materialized in the form of a modestly enhanced VPMi web-based project management tool which Wildflower continued to tailor in order to best serve our principal customer, the Federal Government.”
“We couldn’t be more proud of our partnership with Wildflower or the power of VirtualEyes to change the way the U.S. Federal Government manages contracts and projects,” states VCSonline co-founder Nick Matteucci. “Since launching VPMi in 1998, the single goal for VPMi has always been to help customers reach their full potential through simple, sensible, and supportable project management solutions, and VirtualEyes does exactly that.” Matteucci continued, “By combining our expertise in building web-based project management software with Wildflower’s knowledge of U.S. Government contract management, we knew we had the best combination since chocolate met peanut butter.”
“SaaS adoption is highest in applications that support simplified, common business processes or large, distributed virtual workforce teams. Ease of use, rapid deployment, limited upfront investment in capital and staffing, plus a reduction in software management responsibility all make SaaS a desirable alternative to many on-premises solutions, and they will continue to act as drivers of growth,” said Sharon Mertz, research director at Gartner.
