Clarizen Inc. has integrated its project management software with the Solidworks CAD tool, allowing design engineers to track project status and create new tasks. Clarizen's suite integrates Web-based management tools with engineering CAD tools designed to maintain project databases. Users select an option from a pull-down menu on their CAD tool to receive assignments and to report on their status. Managers access the Clarizen data centers via a Web browser to view progress reports, assign new tasks and report project status to senior managers. E-mailed forms enable distributed teams to operate by time-shifting status reports relative to working hours synchronized by the data centers.
