Synaptix Systems Delivers PMO Strategy and PMO Systems Implementation Roadmap for $3B Financial Services Customer

ALISO VIEJO, California – September 7, 2007 – Synaptix Systems Inc., a leading strategy and solutions firm that helps clients understand & maximize return on their information technology (IT) and project investments, today announced the successful delivery of a Strategic Plan & Changepoint Implementation Roadmap for the Program Management Office (PMO) at a global $3B financial services customer.

The Enterprise-level PMO at Synaptix Systems’ customer had selected Compuware’s Changepoint product as the foundation of its systems infrastructure, and subsequently engaged Synaptix to generate a Process & Systems Roadmap for the implementation of extended Project Management, Resource Management and Project Portfolio Management capabilities. The customer had already implemented a Time Reporting functionality and related procedures, but needed both strategic and tactical guidance on how to realize and maximize the value of the Changepoint offering.

Synaptix Systems teamed with the client’s PMO and IT organizations to detail a tailored Changepoint Roadmap that captured the company’s vision for the PMO system, the business & technical requirements for supporting that vision, and the architectural approach to implement the system in an incremental manner. Synaptix also addressed how to integrate the new system with internal legacy systems (Financial, Human Resources, etc.), how to define/prepare/load relevant data, and how to customize the system to handle unique customer business processes. Lastly, Synaptix delivered a detailed project implementation plan that laid out specific activities, resourcing, effort estimates, schedule, risks, dependencies, costs and training elements.

“We are thrilled to help guide our client through the complexities of implementing PMO systems and processes that must meet various (and often competing) needs across a large, geographically dispersed and highly segmented company”, states Synaptix Systems President & CEO Heath Hawker. “I am confident that we have jointly created an effective strategy and approach to realizing near-term PMO value and longer-term process and system scalability”.

Synaptix Systems’ client anticipates working with Synaptix for the implementation and rollout phases of the project, which are set to take place over the next seven (7) months. The new PMO system will yield increasingly real-time, accessible and accurate information on project valuation, project prioritization, resource assignment/utilization, progress reporting and post-project review & performance.

Synaptix Systems provides strategic consultative value and information technology governance solutions that drive significant return on investment through process improvement and program/project management office implementation & optimization. The company’s approach to planning and delivering project value has yielded a sound track record of client satisfaction. Recognized for a common sense client advocacy approach and rigorous delivery methods, Synaptix has developed long-term relationships founded on continuous value creation.
