PowerSteering Software Earns Stage-Gate® Ready Version III Certification
Date:8/28/2013

Austin, TX (PRWEB) August 28, 2013

PowerSteering Software, the leading cloud provider of business-driven project & portfolio management (PPM) solutions and part of Upland Software Inc.’s family of project, portfolio, and work management applications, today announced that version 9.4 of its software has received Stage-Gate Ready Version III Certification from Stage-Gate International, the world’s leading full-service provider of product innovation solutions.

Stage-Gate International’s idea-to-launch process is the most widely-implemented product innovation system in the world today. To become Stage-Gate Ready certified, a software vendor must demonstrate functionality on over 200 innovation-related criteria and provide user references to prove the solution is capable of automating Stage-Gate processes and practices. PowerSteering passed all of the 115 mandatory and 97 optional criteria. This achievement includes the new criteria of the Stage-Gate evaluation covering the automation of process optimization and innovation strategy.

“Stage-Gate Ready Certification, Version III, requires participating software providers to demonstrate functionality that moves beyond the tactical execution of new product development,” says Scott J. Edgett, world renowned innovation expert and CEO of Stage-Gate International. “It addresses the business' need for visibility of their innovation program from the strategic, portfolio and project level, while addressing a level of analysis that supports the continuous improvement of enabling Stage-Gate innovation management processes.”

Project and portfolio management tools can dramatically improve the results of product development efforts by enabling organizations to make better product portfolio decisions, optimize the allocation of R&D resources, and increase the visibility and governance of innovation projects. However, not all PPM systems provide the capabilities required to fully support innovation management. PowerSteering is one of only a handful of vendors to achieve Version III Stage-Gate Ready Certification.

Many of the world’s foremost organizations rely on PowerSteering to support their product development efforts, including:

  •     ADT Corporation, a leading provider of electronic security, interactive home and business automation and monitoring products and services.
  •     Veyance Technologies, the exclusive producer of Goodyear Engineered Products.
  •     American Vanguard Corporation, a diversified specialty and agricultural products company focusing on crop protection, turf and ornamental markets, and public health applications.
  •     EMC Corporation, a global leader in enabling businesses and service providers to transform their operations and deliver information technology as a service (ITaaS).

“We are gratified that Stage-Gate International has again validated PowerSteering’s capabilities in the areas of Idea Management, Product Portfolio Management, Idea-to-Launch Process and Innovation Strategy,” commented Ludwig Melik, President of Upland Software. “We think it is critical for PPM applications that support innovation processes to maintain Stage-Gate Ready certification to verify their software’s abilities are keeping pace with the latest industry best practices for R&D and product development.”
