"We were immediately impressed by the simplicity and elegance of the new Changepoint user interface.

"We are extremely pleased with this release and its support for globalized services teams," said Graham Hayhurst, Head, Project One Application Center, Steria, one of Europe's top 10 IT services companies. "We have undertaken an ambitious rollout of Changepoint to more than 9,000 users worldwide with a target of 12,000 users over the coming months, and the capabilities in this release – specifically the ability to express time in increments of hours, days or full time equivalents -- allow us to overcome adoption barriers in certain countries and achieve our goal of single system support for our entire services organization. We were delighted to partner with the Changepoint team and offer input to this release. They listened attentively to our needs and delivered."

"Global services teams are among the most complex in the world. They are heavily resource intensive, geographically diverse, and the teams within these organizations typically manage a variety of projects and engagements – short and long term – at any one time. Despite the productivity and efficiency services organizations can realize, this is still a relatively untapped market opportunity. According to a recent industry benchmark study by PSVillage, up to 1/3 of these organizations continue to manage operations manually or on a spreadsheet. By making the world's most powerful PSA solution even easier to use, we can facilitate adoption of Changepoint across the global services market and encourage widespread utilization and uptake of the solution in our existing customers," said Lori Ellsworth, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Compuware Changepoint business unit.
