 LAFAYETTE, CALIF. – February 23, 2015 – TechExcel Inc., a leading provider of integrated Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) and Project Portfolio Management (PPM) solutions, today announced the availability of DevSuite 9.5, a major release of its ALM platform with fully integrated PPM.  The latest version of DevSuite features significant feature enhancements to the DevSuite PPM capabilities and a completely redesigned new Graphic User Interface (GUI) that deliver a significantly greater user experience and increase the performance and productivity for users.

Companies around the world use TechExcel DevSuite to deliver higher quality products to market faster, reduce project costs, monitor performance, and work more efficiently.  Both long-time customers and new users will be excited to see the elegant and intuitive new user interface, enhanced and expanded PPM capabilities, and experience the improved usage and productivity that DevSuite 9.5 delivers.

“It’s no longer enough for software development and project management tools to just support development methods with agile or traditional practices,” said Dr. Tieren Zhou, TechExcel Founder and Chief Software Architect. “With the release of DevSuite 9.5, we’re providing our customers with an enterprise-strength, high caliber PPM solution to manage all projects based on definable project workflows and procedures compliant with ISO, ITIL, CMMI, and other standards.”

DevSuite has always been a premium, feature rich ALM and Development Management solution.  With its seamless integration of PPM and ALM, organizations can define, enforce, and monitor critical project-level milestones and workflows, while allowing implementation teams to choose the most appropriate methodology for their work, such as Agile, Waterfall, or a hybrid approach.  While many development projects are becoming more Agile and require less and less process control, higher level project management still requires robust lifecycle management, automation, and control.  DevSuite provides the platform for such high-level project management, including lifecycle management, status automation, milestone change management, financial tracking, risk assessment, job performance evaluation, customer satisfaction monitoring, resource management, and much more.

Designed to manage much more than just development projects, DevSuite can be easily configured to fully support; automate; and, most importantly, replicate any process.  For virtually any type of project, DevSuite enables users to manage their projects with full assurance that all required management tasks are properly executed, detailed deliverables are tracked, and the process is compliant to project standards.

“Our customers have been asking for a beautiful GUI for DevSuite to match its workflow and process automation reputations for a long time,” said Jeff Johnstone, TechExcel Vice President Sales and Marketing.  “We’re listening to their needs and, with the release of DevSuite 9.5, are pleased to provide them with a beautiful user interface, with the best navigation experience possible for an integrated PPM and ALM solution with such powerful and complete functions.”

DevSuite’s revolutionary new GUI combines a beautiful interface with ease-of-use for enhanced usability and a greater, more enjoyable user experience.  The new user interface improves development and QA team’s usage and productivity with its new dynamic tab layout which allows you to use the entire screen to manage as many simultaneous views as needed.  Now with a single mouse click, users can easily navigate between projects, tasks, folder trees, and more.

DevSuite also now features greater page design flexibility, all-in-one development for Web and Tablets, support for URL-based item navigation, and multiple tab dashboard support, making navigation and development activities more convenient and easier.  All icons, buttons and page designs have also been enhanced for a more consistent user experience.

DevSuite consists of DevPPM, DevSpec, DevTrack, DevTest, VersionLink, and KnowledgeWise, TechExcel’s solution-wide repository for collaboration, information sharing, knowledge management, and process/work item tracking.  Available in hosted or on-premise deployment models, DevSuite is offered as an integrated suite of PPM and ALM solution for enterprises looking for powerful and flexible platforms for their project management and product development needs.
