New enhancements are improving overall product usability. Users can now select where user-configurable fields and system defined fields can be positioned so as to make data entry and workflow more logical for users. Additional report distribution capabilities (e.g., to Internet Explorer, Firefox in html format or Microsoft Excel) for non-Changepoint users such as business executives have also been added. To extend existing dashboard Portal capabilities, role-specific Portal templating has been added. Now, users only input or complete the information that is relevant to their position and/or project. Managers have access to reports via their portals that are specific to the initiatives under their control.
Directed toward companies that provide professional services, Changepoint is designed for use in small to large enterprises. While freelancers and small businesses might find some aspects of Changepoint helpful, the best benefits are likely to be experienced by midsize organizations.
