IS Tools Releases IS Manager 8.0
IS Manager is the wireless industry’s best kept secret for managing global network deployment projects across Europe, Asia, and South America. Nearly 40% of the global wireless network deployment projects rely on customized instances of IS Manager for team and document coordination. Now the specialized, cloud-based project management application is also available in North America.
Stockholm, Sweden/Brooklyn, NY – March 8, 2012 – IS Tools, a leading enterprise grade platform as a service (PaaS) provider today announced the availability of version 8.0 of IS Manager, a specialized project management application for wireless and telecommunication network deployments.
The fully-customizable, cloud-based IS Manager project management solution comes preconfigured with a robust set of telecom-specific project and task management features, automated alerts and common reports needed to support projects from site acquisition and construction to rollout and ongoing operational maintenance. Nearly 40% of the global network deployment projects rely on customized instances of IS Manager for team and document coordination.
IS Manager version 8.0 is easier to use, faster to customize, and more interoperable than ever. The new modernized graphical user interface (GUI) features a new menu system and inline drag and drop editing. Flexible new reporting templates export data into a wider variety of Excel and text based formats to facilitate integration with third party reporting tools or specialized applications like GIS or enterprise systems. The new, expanded API supports easier web services integrations.
Three user-requested enhancements included in this release include enhanced functionality for tracking transmission hops and a new tabbed form that aggregates all site data into one convenient view. Users also requested an easy way to view aggregated deployment progress data at the cluster level. At a glance, a busy manager can now see that 500 of his 3500 high priority sites have been integrated and quickly identify the 500 that are awaiting equipment installation.
Because IS Manager is built on the powerful, enterprise grade IS Tools platform, powerful field level access controls allow deployment project managers to confidently share selected information from any area of the system and further arrange for access to views in meaningful role-based contexts without exposing sensitive data.
The platform’s flexible configuration features allow any business user to customize the application on the fly for specific processes or workflows using the easy point and click configuration controls. Even quite significant customizations can be added at any time without costly specialized programming. Plus users can easily avoid the awkwardness and inefficiency of out of scope features by simply removing unneeded functionality with a few clicks.
