New Visual Reporting, Enhanced Social Discussion Features and Streamlined Time Reporting Make it Easier Than Ever to Collaborate and Drive Results

SAN MATEO, Calif. – January 28, 2013 – Clarizen, the leader in enterprise work collaboration software, today announced new updates to its award-winning Clarizen v6 cloud-based platform.  Clarizen V6 redefines collaboration for the enterprise by organically creating a “work graph™” thatreplace connects conversations, actions and deliverables to help organizations achieve operational excellence. Now, new visual reporting, enhanced social discussion groups and streamlined time reporting, among other features, enhance organizations’ abilities to collaborate more effectively and get more work done, faster.

“Since its introduction six months ago, our customers are using Clarizen v6 to turn their organizations into high-performance, real-time operations by connecting unstructured conversations with structured work,” said Avinoam Nowogrodski, CEO and founder of Clarizen. “We always work from the customer backward to make the process of executing work intuitive for all. We’re excited to offer our users the most visually refined and configurable solution for getting work done.”

What’s New
New updates to Clarizen v6, available now, include:

  • Visual Charts and Reports: New chart views (bar, pie, or scatter) give even better visibility into customers’ data, allowing them to create reports on the fly and build configurable dashboards and charts across the system. Organizations can build different views with filters to visually slice and dice data in any way they would like, as well as drill down into any chart to get detailed information. This enables them to focus on their most critical work.
  • Time Reporting Enhancements: Clarizen v6 allows users to quickly add a new task and report time on it at the same time. In this release, users can now also add themselves to tasks that they may not have originally been assigned to and report time. The ability to do updates in real time dramatically simplifies and improves the accuracy of the time tracking process.
  • Enhanced Social Discussion Groups: New search and filtering capabilities in the News Feed and discussion groups makes it possible to quickly search for a specific post, eliminating the need to leave the feed in favor of the global search. Users can filter out closed discussions and locate messages posted by a particular user, along with many other factors, to get to the most relevant post and quickly take action or create a new project as needed.
  • Augmented Ability to Configure Projects: Users can now define the beginnings and ends of workdays, export multiple projects at once to a Microsoft© Project and gain enhanced visibility into billing rates. In addition, users can now quickly upload new custom object icons to easily distinguish between work items or differentiate between milestones.

The Work Graph™
The way most companies work is broken.  First we build work groups, and then we engage in conversations, which may become actions and, ideally, these actions become deliverables.  Each of these typically live in disconnected “ islands” of activity, managed by different systems.  Clarizen is different in that it connects these islands into a “work graph” that is organically created through the act of getting work done. The work graph enables collaboration that drives results, turning every organization into a high-performance, real-time operation.
