Customer

Genius Enterprise Project software from Genius Inside has over 200 customers worldwide and in excess of 38,000 users, supported by a network of 20 global reseller partners. Genius Enterprise Project was recognized by IBM at Lotusphere 2004 with the Lotus Workplace Innovation – CTO award.

The Challenge

Genius Inside wanted to be able to deliver in a timely manner, greater MS Office integration and advanced attachment support capabilities in all Genius solutions. Although not critical project management functions, many customers seek this integration and it is a substantial competitive advantage.

Genius Inside has always had the same philosophy: do not reinvent the wheel and therefore evaluated the options available by other vendors to allow this functionality. They examined not only product functionality, but also the company’s business models and experience with supporting strong third integration technology.

The Solution

After several months of analysis, Genius Inside chose SWING Integrator for its functionality, support of Notes client and web browser, and company methodology.

“SWING Integrator allowed us to easily modify our solutions to provide greater integration with MS Office and support for MS attachments which has been very well received. Their technical team has been very responsive and easy to work with and we feel our company’s share the same view that positive third party relationships can be very beneficial to both sides, ” says Christophe Borlat, CEO of Genius Inside.

“Implementation was straightforward thanks to their solid documentation and to the sample database available with their product. We had only to copy some design elements into our database and to include a subform managing the attachments into our forms. The focus of the integration was the adaptation of the look and feel of SWING Integrator to the look and feel of Project4Domino, which was also painless. We were able to save several weeks worth of work while integrating Project4Domino and MS Project on the Web.”

Results

“Thanks to Swing Integrator and its plethora of functionality our products can now easily manage attachments through Notes and on the Web.

The bottom line is that through partnering with SWING Software, we have been able to deliver high level enhanced functionality to our customers in a very short time. We have also gained a great competitive advantage by delivering these new functions, and were able to save a lot of money in R&D.”
