EPM Live rocks SharePoint TechCon!

Time sure does fly when you’re having fun, and this week at the SharePoint TechCon Conference in San Francisco was no exception. Located at the beautiful Hilton San Francisco Union Square, EPM Live showcased our award winning SharePoint-based enterprise project, portfolio and work management solutions.

Always a great event, the SharePoint TechCon is the largest independent conference in the world for IT professionals, business managers, analysts, and developers.

The passion for all things SharePoint was evident from attendees and exhibitors alike. EPM Live customers and partners sought us out to talk about their experiences using our SharePoint-based project and portfolio management software (PPM). By implementing EPM Live these organizations said they were able to simplify their project and portfolio processes, increase visibility and improve resource management.

I particularly enjoyed speaking with attendees who were new to EPM Live. It’s very rewarding to see their excitement about our products and the possibilities of how it could improve their project and portfolio management. During one of our onsite demos with Practice Director, Jim Patterson, one of the attendees said with conviction “Now that’s money!”  And of course, that’s what we love to hear!

Every day was very busy in the EPM Live booth. People were very curious about how EPM Live could improve their project management processes. EPM Live offers three tiers of SharePoint-based PPM solutions, recognizing that project management is not a one size fits all type of deal.

EPM Live solutions include:

ProjectEngine, a simple online project management tool that makes working together on projects, easy.






WorkEngine, a single solution, that unites all users across your business by providing a common framework for Enterprise Project Management, New Product Development, Application Management and Service Management.








And PortfolioEngine, a SharePoint-based, top-down Project Portfolio Management (PPM) Solution that empowers executives to make critical business decisions with confidence. 







EPM Live’s PPM solutions are all Microsoft SharePoint-based and seamlessly integrate with other business productivity tools such as Microsoft Project, Outlook and Excel. A perfect balance of scheduling options, project and portfolio management best practices, collaboration tools and reporting provides a simple, yet powerful solution.

Tuesday, EPM Live’s trusted partner K2 was one of the sponsors for a great evening event for attendees and exhibitors at Temple Nightclub in downtown San Francisco. A fun night of dancing and networking with SharePoint peers was the break we all needed!

Wednesday brought the completion to the show and for two lucky EPM Live booth visitors some pretty cool parting gifts. The EPM Live grand prize winner walked away with a 37” Flat Screen TV and our consolation prize winner won a Ferrari remote control car!

SharePoint TechCon, is a great event and we really enjoyed being a part of all the fun and action this year!
