(businesspress24) - “Kemira’s management wanted to ensure that the integration of Microsoft Project Server with SAP would be completed rapidly,” comments Ville Vakkilainen, Director, Project Business Unit at Tietotalo. “Our customer’s decision to use TPG PSLink for this project was mainly based on its SAP certification and multiple customer references,” he adds. The TPG product provides a user-friendly project management environment in which data from SAP and Microsoft Project Server are synchronized in the background. Users from project management and accounting can continue to use the tools they are most familiar with. The product also eliminates the need for dual data management in the two systems, while ensuring a high level of user acceptance.

Having already signed up a partner in Denmark, the alliance with project management specialist Tietotalo in Finland represents the next step forward for TPG in the Nordic market. “The Finnish market offers significant potential for our product range,” notes Stavros Georgantzis, Managing Director of TPG The Project Group. “With Tietotalo, we have a highly qualified and experienced Microsoft partner with customers in several promising industries, such as energy. As our products complement and extend Microsoft Project, they offer multiple benefits to Tietotalo’s customers.”

TPG is headquartered in Munich, Germany and has subsidiaries in the USA, UK and Austria as well as a global network of authorized partners. All partners are specialized in Microsoft EPM based solutions and sell and implement TPG’s products. TPG currently has partners in 16 countries, including Australia, Brazil, Singapore, South Africa and Thailand.
