The Year in Review

The end of any year is always time to look back at how we did, did we meet our objectives, have we made our clients lives easier?

After much effort, we released RiskyProject 5 in June and was an important landmark for us here at Intaver Institute. The product of hundreds of hours of consultation with industry experts and thousands of hours of development, RiskyProject Professional offers unrivaled capabilities at a fraction of the cost of our competitors. RiskyProject Professional shows that you can provide superior software at a very reasonable cost. Risky Project Lite, our entry level software, includes our Addin that provides a powerful, inexpensive replacement for Risk+ users who are moving to Microsoft Project 2010

The latest version also provides the framework for our future development. Much effort was put in the backend of software to provide the flexibility to meet emerging trends, including Cloud, SAAS, etc. Stay tuned for announcements of our upcoming new products.

With the release of version 5, we also began to increase our presence at industry gatherings. In July, Intaver Institute made its first appearance at the AACEI conference in San Antonio. It really was a fantastic gathering, we found the attendees were extremely well informed, and were able to sit in on some of the great presentations. Needless to say, it didn’t hurt that the convention took place beside the famous “River Walk” in downtown San Antonio. Great restaurants, walking, and historical attractions to take in during the off hours.

In October, we attended the PMI Congress in Vancouver, while attendance was down in past years, it is always a great place to catch up with old friends and associates, as well as make new ones, and see what the latest trends in the industry are.

In December, we made an appeance at the IPM conference in Bethesda, Maryland. This is a key conference that intersects industry and government. Discussions and presentations focussed around major changes to the program managment process that are being considered in the near future, of which risk management will be a key aspect.

2013 certainly looks interesting and we will continue to offer both outstanding value and service. Our success to this point rests largely on our customer focus and our responsiveness to meeting your needs. As many of our clients can attest, not only are we willing to listen and address your concerns and suggestions, but do so extremely quickly.
