Ease of Use, Flexibility and Low Cost of Ownership Favored PowerSteering

Cambridge, Massachusetts (March 26, 2007) – PowerSteering, the market leader in On-Demand Performance Improvement software, today announced that Ingersoll Rand has chosen PowerSteering for enterprise-wide Project Portfolio Management comprising multiple strategic initiatives.

Ingersoll Rand’s use of PowerSteering will be extensive, spanning Lean Six Sigma, Shared Services, Corporate IT, PMO and Innovation efforts. It will replace a mix of Excel spreadsheets, customized Lotus applications and manual processes that were used inconsistently across the organization.

“We searched for a suitable Portfolio Management tool that would be accepted and adopted by executives, program managers and project managers alike. With PowerSteering, we acquired more versatility, increased efficiency, and better insight to inform our investment decisions at an extremely attractive cost of ownership,” explained James Wood, Senior Project Manager, Ingersoll Rand. “We expect the use of PowerSteering to proliferate across the company and quickly become the sole resource for tracking our entire corporate project pipeline.”

“I’m delighted to welcome Ingersoll Rand as a new PowerSteering customer. This win is very significant because it exemplifies the strategic vision for PowerSteering as the single solution for on-demand enterprise portfolio management for all performance improvement initiatives. Now organizations like Ingersoll Rand, who incorporate a variety of strategic initiatives to enhance business performance, can manage them in a consistent and unified manner to deliver better results,” remarked Stephen Sharp, PowerSteering’s Chief Executive Officer.
