iPool selects AMS REALTIME for Enterprise Project Management Solution

Linux-based system to help manage rapid growth of Internet company

Herndon, VA - February 29, 2000 - Advanced Management Solutions announced today that iPool has selected the AMS REALTIME suite of enterprise project and resource management software to help manage its development programs.

iPool is a consumer e-commerce company which provides a 'pooling' service to its customers. This allows individual consumers to gain the benefits of being part of a large group by uniting via the Internet to get the prices they want for various household and financial services. iPool also offers objective and time-saving research, while protecting consumer privacy.

The AMS REALTIME suite of software will provide project management, resource management and timesheets across iPool's development group and will also be used to manage business development projects. AMS REALTIME will run on Red Hat Linux Version 6.

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."

Another significant factor in iPool's selection process was that the system should not only meet their needs today but also would scale to provide more sophisticated functionality to meet more demanding requirements as their organization continues to grow. AMS REALTIME's availability on Linux, a strategic platform for iPool, also was an important factor in the selection.

Diane Angell, Chief Executive Officer with Advanced Management Solutions commented "We're excited to welcome iPool as an AMS REALTIME customer and commend iPool in selecting a system that will support their needs in the future as they evolve to embrace project portfolio management and performance measurement."
