Itransition developed a fully functional SharePoint-based portal with rich visualization capabilities to help the customer optimize their resource management process
A Switzerland-based independent software vendor specialized in Microsoft technologies requested Itransition to develop a web-based collaborative resource management application. The solution was to help the customer streamline their resource management process while fostering such daily activities as project planning and resource distribution.
