Stuart Smith, Project Manager with iPool, comments on the business
drivers behind the implementation of an enterprise project and resource
management system, "With our rapid growth, we recognized that
we needed to keep a tight grip on our many development projects as
well as other commitments such as support work". Smith continues,
"AMS REALTIME satisfied iPool's requirement for a tool to help
manage multiple projects, and which also integrated resource management
in the process."

system should not only meet their needs today but also would scale

important factor in the selection.
