Clarizen is doing for the project management space what Salesforce did for the CRM and SuccessFactors did for Talent Management. Clarizen is leading in a new space- WorkExecution Management. Same was true for Salesforce and SuccessFactors...aren't they just another CRM/talent management companies? Clarizen have strong leadership in place and we are now focusing on expanding enterprise sales and scaling marketing so we clearly take the leadership position of this emerging, and very large, market. There are many others to leverage - Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, Salesforce, SuccessFactors, Taleo, Intact, Workday, Jive, and Yammer (to name a few) that will be growing Clarizen's market and serving up pre-qualified prospects.Clarizen’s unique approach to Business Execution Management is based on a strategy of promoting users responsibilities and participation and actually help users understand what they need to do each day and give them the tools to do it. Once users are on board, the rest falls into place and the enterprise can systematically optimize and improve resource utilization, time management and get real time visibility to deliverables status and budget use. Clarizen brings a new level of visibility accountability and predictability and is helping companies become real-time businesses.
So how do people executing their work today? They use their email system, Excel, time reporting, issue tracing and other applications as their work execution system. Getting no tractability no accountability and no visibility.
Clarizen is helping companies to be more productive by delivering a Work Management solution focused on empowering the users on the one hand and delivering business execution visibility on the other hand. Clarizen is connecting the unstructured work communication such as email with the managed processes of resource management, time management, delivery management and budget management. Clarizen Work Management solution is the next step for many companies allowing them for the first time to systematically stream line their process and manage their most valuable asset, their people.
