The software's built-in reports and latest dashboard capabilities incorporate best practices from Meridian's more than 20 years of industry expertise, resulting in a comprehensive yet intuitive set of features.The new capabilities in Proliance 5.6 add to an already robust feature set, including: a workflow engine that provides views of planned and historical workflow processes; flexible, secure information sharing for cross-project contracts and budgets; and the ability to view both summarized information at an organizational level as well as specific project and program details. Proliance also features a bidding and tendering module for visibility and control into project procurement.

"Whether reviewing real-time cost reporting or the nuances of earned value and parametric estimating, access to reliable, tailored data is paramount—and that's where Proliance's project workflow, budget analysis and reporting functionality come to the forefront."
