Linking Microsoft Project with Microsoft Outlook and Lotus Notes

We are pleased to announce that BeMo is now an authorized reseller of Allocatus developed by holert.com. Allocatus is a unique server-based application which provides a bi-directional sync between Outlook, Lotus Notes, Exchange Server or Domino Server with Project Server 2010.

With Allocatus every project member sees in his (her) own calendar his (her) current appointments from the project plan. Every project member can individually select the tasks he or she wants to link to. That means that even tasks which are not assigned in Project can be linked to the Calendar. In consequence everyone related to the project, such as team leaders, project managers and members of the steering committee will always be up to date with all tasks and milestones. Allocatus saves every day the time that each project member requires to check, update and log dates. Many companies including Adidas have realized the benefits of Allocatus as reported in their case study.

 You can watch one of our video demonstrations for Outlook or for Lotus Notes and see Allocatus in action.

For further information, please contact BeMo Sales team at sales@bemopro.com .
