HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Oct. 23, 2013—The newly expanded Intergraph® Global Professional Services Consultancy and Delivery Organization has launched the improved Global Professional Services Methodology (GPSM) to provide consistent and predictable delivery results for projects worldwide. By establishing best practices and processes into a single methodology, GPSM will provide a structured approach for standard reporting and enhanced project execution globally.
GPSM is scalable based on delivery complexity and is also oriented to customer alignment based on schedule and cost control. There are six phases in GPSM with decision gates and clear deliverables for better project governance. Quality control is a continuous process throughout GPSM, ensuring accuracy of project documentation and high-quality deliverables. The formal GPSM framework helps to streamline project execution and identifies any potential risk early, reducing the need for costly rework and delays. It also provides tools and capabilities for seamless project delivery.
“Our customers from all over the world are increasingly looking to Intergraph for services and support on project implementations, and we are constantly improving our processes to ensure we are meeting their needs,” said Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine president. “GPSM is workflow-oriented and incorporates industry best practices into the project delivery process. It can effectively avoid or mitigate risk for projects, enhance project execution for on-time delivery and improve engagement with customers for greater customer satisfaction.”
The ARC Advisory Group, a leading industry analyst firm, ranked Intergraph as the No. 1 overall worldwide provider of engineering design solutions for industry according to its “Engineering Design Tools for Industry and Infrastructure Worldwide Outlook Market Analysis and Forecast Through 2016.”
