Two international companies serving the Microsoft Project market will be working together on sales initiatives. Sensei Project Solutions, based in Phoenix, AZ, has signed an agreement with Denmark-based Projectum to sell its products and solutions in North America and Australia. And Projectum will sell Sensei’s products in the Nordic countries and the Netherlands.
Both firms offer third-party products and enterprise project management consulting services, and both have won Microsoft’s esteemed Partner of the Year awards in the project and portfolio management (PPM) category.
Projectum’s product line includes:
- Timesheet Daily Comments, which allows users to add comments on timesheets;
- Resource Manager, to bolster resource management in the PPM implementation; and
- Custom Fields Editor, to track how often custom fields are used, to delete fields in bulk and other functionality.
Sensei’s suite of solutions covers integration between Project and line-of-business systems, enhanced project reporting and the addition of Agile and Scrum functionality in Microsoft’s PPM system.
“Projectum is obviously one of the premier Microsoft PPM partners in the world, and we are thrilled to be partnering with them in this way,” said Sensei CEO Kenneth Steiness, in a prepared statement. “Having their products and solutions as part of our PPM suite will greatly enhance the value we can bring to our clients.”
Added Peter Kestenholz, founding partner of Projectum, “We have known the team at Sensei for years, and have been impressed with their solutions. We’re thrilled that we can now present those solutions to our own customers.”
Projectum last week also announced a new CEO. Kestenholz will be moving aside to focus on innovation activities and “business transformation.” His previous role as CEO is being filled by Claus Jordan, who has held C-level positions in companies in the United Kingdom and the United States. Jordan’s sector experience covers life sciences, chemicals and food, logistics and oil & gas, among others.
