[prMac.com] Odessa, Ukraine - CS Odessa publicly unveils the newly developed InGyre Technology as a core part of the ConceptDraw Office. This brand new business productivity software suite is aimed to help managers take control of projects, participants, and resources in businesses of any size. InGyre Technology enables users to rapidly represent tasks, resources, and status information at any stage of business processes, in an optimal visual manner for each participant - depending on their role.
InGyre Technology introduces the capability of working from single files, using project management tool ConceptDraw PROJECT, along with visual mapping software ConceptDraw MINDMAP. Depending on the tasks that need to be resolved, users can decide which application within the suite is most appropriate. Any changes made to project data in one application are automatically integrated with the other products.
The ease of building visual documentation, that reflects actual work progress, is a major task that InGyre Technology was developed to support. InGyre easily assists in the creation of visual dashboards and reports that represent key indicators of work progress, from either project files or a set of selected tasks. It also quickly transforms task outlines into professional looking Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) charts. All project documents are editable by using ConceptDraw PRO.
Possibilities utilizing InGyre Technology begin with brainstorming project ideas, using whiteboard views and organizing results into highly informative mind maps. At the next phase, information is developed into detailed project plans with Gantt Charts and visual performance dashboards. Managers can then balance resource loads using the Resource Usage view, or send task lists to team participants in the form of mind maps.
Gregory Zhukov, Chief Executive Officer of CS Odessa states, "The result of our 15 years experience in developing market leading business applications, data visualization technologies, and our collective knowledge in project management has contributed to the development of InGyre Technology. Every person involved in any business can now retrieve necessary information in its most convenient form with little or no effort. InGyre Technology gives our users the tools they need to build an effective communication process that is intuitive for managers, stakeholders and team participants."
Gregory further comments, "InGyre Technology is unique in its ability to share data in such a transparent manner on both the PC and Macintosh. Our three leading products ConceptDraw PRO, ConceptDraw MINDMAP and ConceptDraw PROJECT, with the release of ConceptDraw Office, will support this ability to use and reuse data intelligently. Our customers have been telling us that they are looking for a powerful solution like this."
