Production And Event Media Firm, Message Makers, Improves Time Management Across Multiple Offices With Vertabase Pro Project Management Software

Oak Park, MI (PressExposure) April 18, 2007 -- Vertabase, a leading developer of project management software, today announced that Message Makers, a producer of video, print, audio and interactive multimedia communications, has increased time management efficiency through the implementation of Vertabase Pro software.

Vertabase Pro offers project management tools for non-technical users to organize people and projects by simplifying, centralizing and accelerating access to critical up-to-date information. Vertabase Pro facilitates superior management by providing a framework for increased productivity.

Founded in 1977, Message Makers serves hundreds of clients worldwide, including: Harley Owners' Group, US Office of Overseas Schools, City of Detroit, National Association of Family Child Care, Michigan State University and Association for the Advancement of International Education. With headquarters in Lansing, MI, the company has offices in Illinois, Virginia and Oregon.

Managing the status of on-going projects had been an obstacle for Message Makers' management team for some time because timesheets and status reports were processed separately. After a comparative analysis of several project management software solutions, Message Makers selected and implemented Vertabase Pro one year ago.

"Prior to implementing Vertabase Pro, it was difficult for us to effectively manage resource allocation," said Chiung Cheng, PhD, Controller and Research Director, Message Makers. "We selected Vertabase Pro because it addressed our most essential need - the merging of project status reporting and timesheet management into a single function. Now, with Vertabase Pro, we are able to evaluate overall status instantly."

"Vertabase Pro is simple, straightforward and offers universal access to important information. We use it everyday. For our company, Vertabase Pro has eliminated inefficiencies and saved considerable time. For me personally, as the individual tasked with managing accounts payable and accounts receivable, it saves hours per week. Now, instead of calling or e-mailing employees about details on their timesheets, all necessary information is at my fingertips," Ms. Cheng concluded.
