Auckland, New Zealand (PressExposure) May 21, 2007 -- Method123 Ltd, the founders of "project management templates online", today announced that they intend to build a portal for project management.
Nicknamed "PM Earth", the new site is set to become a leading portal for project managers worldwide. While details of the new site are kept a closely guarded secret by the Method123 management team, they have announced that the portal will include new tools and techniques never before used in the community.
A holding site has just been released today at http://www.pmearth.com which provides a brief summary of a few of the key pages on the site. There are already a number of portals in existence in the project management domain. So Method123 has decided on a "unique approach" to offering free materials for Project Managers.
"Building a new portal which will be widely used by 250 countries worldwide, is a huge challenge," says Jason Westland, founder and CEO of Method123 Ltd. "You need a novel idea and a unique offering that suits all types of projects in all industries. We have spent the last 6 months researching our target market and identifying their needs. We have now designed an offering that we believe all project managers in all industries, will find valuable," says Westland.
So why will this portal be different than the rest? Method123 say that they have identified new ways of reaching out to project managers. They are building cutting edge technology to be able to supply project managers with the knowledge, tools and techniques that they need to deliver projects successfully.
Method123 won't say what these new technologies are, as they believe them too valuable to communicate prior to the release of the site. They have stated that they are not building a portal that resembles other portals for project management on the market, such as; Gantthead, AllPM or 4PM. These sites currently have a set amount of intellectual property that they give away for free, to attract people to purchase their premium products or services. It is likely that in total, more than 1 million people use these existing project management portals to obtain free knowledge and help them deliver projects. PM Earth will approach this sizeable demand from a different perspective to that currently available in the market.
"The project management market is huge," says Westland. "We believe that there are more than 30 million project managers worldwide, and the number of people involved in projects totals more than 150 million. All of these managers and teams have one common goal; to use their existing knowledge, tools and skills to deliver their project on time and under budget. To help them to do this, PM Earth will provide them with the knowledge and tools they need to boost their chances of success. It's a challenging task, but we believe we have created an offering that will be incredibly beneficial to project managers and teams upon released. It certainly will be a one-of-a-kind website," says Westland.
PM Earth is currently in the design phase of the project and is intended to be released within the next 3 months. In total, it will have more than 1000 content pages, which help project managers and teams to complete projects.
