Austin, TX & Barcelona, Spain—January 15, 2014
GetApp, which helps businesses discover, compare, review and purchase business applications, today announced it has awarded a high rating (4.5 out of 5) to PowerSteering upon completion of a thorough review of the project and portfolio management application.
Part of Upland Software's family of cloud-based enterprise work management products, PowerSteering brings a flexible, cost-effective PPM solution to businesses, allowing them to easily manage a large number of projects and initiatives without requiring granular tracking of time, task, and resource details.

PowerSteering helps provide visibility into these efforts all in one place, allowing for optimized resource allocation, streamlined reporting and analysis, and better decision making.
According to GetApp, what sets PowerSteering apart from other PPM solutions is its ability to provide both bottom-up and top-down PPM capabilities in an organization. "In recent years, Project/Program and Portfolio Management (PPM) has grown to be a driving decision making discipline in the business world," GetApp's Stephanie Faris observes in the review. "PowerSteering helps reduce the complexity and ensure success by providing one of the only cloud-based PPM applications designed as a top-down system."
