THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- DecisionEdge, Inc. today announced that Microsoft has included its DecisionEdge for Microsoft Office Project business intelligence solution in the new Microsoft Office Project 2007 Toolkit for Project Managers.

"We're pleased to feature DecisionEdge in the Office Project 2007 Toolkit," said Amit Chaudhry, Senior Product Manager Microsoft Project Division. "The toolkit showcases products and services that complement the enhanced features and functionality of Microsoft Office Project 2007 and helps organizations and project owners manage their projects efficiently. With more than 80 bundled charts and reports that can be launched from a new Microsoft Office Project toolbar button, DecisionEdge for Microsoft Office Project nicely complements the new visual reports feature in Microsoft Office Project 2007."

"DecisionEdge reports and graphics are a great addition to Microsoft Office Project 2007," said Mark Tillema, DecisionEdge president. "With DecisionEdge for Microsoft Office Project, managers can quickly understand and communicate information about all aspects of their projects. We have worked closely with the Microsoft team to ensure compatibility and are pleased to have earned continued recognition as a valued Microsoft partner."

The Microsoft Office Project 2007 Toolkit for ProjectManagers is available now from Microsoft and its reseller partners.

DecisionEdge Features: -- Over 80 Bundled Charts and Reports - DecisionEdge charts and reports are built from the experience of helping customers better understand and communicate all aspects of their projects. These reports and graphics help managers plan resource allocation, keep stakeholders informed, combine and compare projects, track project status, and measure project performance using earned value. -- Multi-Project Functionality - With DecisionEdge, managers no longer need roll-up projects for reporting purposes. They can keep project files separate and easily combine and compare them in DecisionEdge. -- More Report Types - Beyond bars and lines, DecisionEdge includes map charts, matrix charts, pie charts, dashboards, and tabular reports to help managers see their projects in new ways. -- Easy Access - A simple toolbar button in Office Project lets managers quickly move from Office Project to DecisionEdge and back again. -- Comprehensive Dashboards - DecisionEdge dashboards can include multiple data types in a single report (costs, resources, and performance, for example), giving users a complete view of their projects. -- Interactive Reports - Not just static pictures, users can scroll, drill into data, and use filters to focus on the key information needed for better decisions. Snapshots can be saved to standard graphic files and data can be easily exported to Microsoft Office Excel. -- Custom Charts and Reports - Organizations with specific visibility requirements can add their own charts and reports.
