OAK PARK, MI, Aug. 7, 2007 – Vertabase, a leading developer of project management software, today announced that Data Systems of Texas, exclusive distributors of the Sharetec credit union system throughout the southwest, has saved about 50% on shipping costs through the implementation of Vertabase Pro.

Vertabase Pro offers project management tools 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.

Well-established as a value-added reseller (VAR) in new system installations and system support services in the credit union market, Data Systems of Texas has approximately 70 clients across the southwest. Traditionally confronted with challenges related to resource allocation management, it was essential for Data Systems of Texas to select a project management software solution with maximum ease of use for its entire team. Now, Vertabase Pro is used by the majority of Data Systems of Texas employees and resource allocation is managed up to six months in advance.

“Vertabase Pro has allowed us to cut our shipping costs in half,” said Tom Davis, Support Manager, Data Systems of Texas. “We used to ship everything by overnight express at full cost. Now, our time management is much more efficient and we know who needs what in advance. Consequently, we save a significant amount of money by using standard shipping services.”

“Over the last year, Vertabase Pro has allowed us to increase productivity per employee, further improve the quality of customer service and use our resources more efficiently. We have about 15 projects ongoing, at any given time. Each project requires our technicians to be on-site with clients. Simply speaking, the challenge is to be as efficient as possible with our people. Vertabase Pro enables us to group projects together for maximum efficiency. For example, scheduling client visits by geography. Vertabase Pro shows us what our capabilities are and how we can optimize our operations. Furthermore, this product is very easy to use – even for people with no project management experience. For Data Systems of Texas, Vertabase Pro has helped everyone in the company get better organized,” Mr. Davis concluded.
