Project Portfolio Office (PPO), an online project portfolio management (PPM) and collaboration application, has signed a partnership agreement with NSI Technology Africa (NSI), an Africa-wide technology advisory, solutions and services provider with a primary focus on the financial services industry.
This partnership will bring PPO increased exposure in eastern and southern Africa specifically, leveraging NSI's extensive client base and experience to implement, optimise and support the use of the PPO project management application.
"With the competitive climate heating up, companies across the continent can greatly benefit from the enterprise-wide project portfolio management improvements offered by PPO," says Guy Jelley, Project Portfolio Office CEO.
"NSI has a great African footprint and experience, and partnering with them allows PPO to build on the business relationships they've established with many of the largest finance organisations in the southern and eastern African regions, by offering them new tools and techniques for improving their productivity and performance.
This relationship also creates opportunities with new clients, in the financial services, infrastructure, and retail industries, which could benefit from streamlining project portfolio management," he adds.
"The PPO platform is awesome," says Charles Lewis, CTO of NSI. "We believe it provides a best-of-breed capability in the project portfolio management space, and see this underpinning a core part of the project management process for our clients and ourselves. One of the greatest things about the PPO solution is the ease with which projects can be up and running. We would love to see more of our clients gaining a competitive edge from being able to manage and deliver on what they need to quickly and more efficiently."
"We want to be at the forefront of enabling amazing service delivery for all organisations across Africa, and PPO is the solution to help achieve that. NSI brings a wealth of African experience, knowledge and relationships. Our many years of excellent service delivery in east Africa, and now across central and west Africa, positions us to help the PPO message reach right across the continent," Lewis concludes.
