Ukraine developers CS Odessa has confirmed an upcoming project-management suite, ConceptDraw Office, scheduled for release in mid-June 2008.
ConceptDraw Office includes tools for creativity, productivity, team management, project planning, information management, tracking, resource allocation, and reporting results to stockholders and executives.
The company explains it has developed the new software to be highly visual. “For any particular project scenario there is an appropriate visual representation for the respective information. Sample usage scenarios include brainstorming project ideas using a whiteboard-like view, organizing results into highly informative mind maps, and transforming data into detailed project plans and Gantt charts,” it said.
The software also integrates with the software publisher’s other wares: ConceptDraw MINDMAP, ConceptDraw PROJECT, and ConceptDraw PRO, which all ship within the suite.
Any changes to project data in one application are automatically integrated in the others.
Company CEO Gregory Zhukov says: "We have raised the bar, changed the workplace dynamic, and designed our products to utilize the way people think, work, communicate and most importantly:achieve. It's all about accomplishment rather than workarounds that get in the way of real productivity. ConceptDraw Office is for those who want to do."
ConceptDraw Office is available for pre-order at the price of $499 (£251).
