CLEVELAND, Ohio (3/11/10)--Cardwell, developer of Connections Online 4.0, has updated Connections, a strategy execution tool, with enhanced reporting capabilities. The tool includes updated dialog reports, a new metric report, an updated resource utilization report, and a new all projects report. The updates were made so users could gain easier access to the reporting tools within the software. The dialog reports have been updated for all tabs, and the layout has been improved for quicker access. On the individual dialog report, performance indicators, metrics and project tasks have been added, making performance discussions more productive. The report is used to better manage meetings, which is where most managers spend more than 50% of their time, said Karla Norwood, Cardwell president. Managers can print the new metric report for any metric from any metric module, including organization, department, project or people tabs. The updated resource utilization report allows users to sort by departments, rolled up departments or a single department. The report allows leaders to sort how resources are being used for projects within the organization. The new all projects report lists projects from all departments, allowing users to view project activity in comprehensive mode. Cardwell, based in Cleveland, Ohio, is a software development and management-consulting firm. It helps clients, including credit unions, succeed by improving organization-wide alignment and cross-functional collaboration through its Connections Online strategy execution tool.
