In August 2008, Daptiv commissioned Forrester Consulting to examine the total economic impact and potential return on investment (ROI) that enterprises may realize by deploying Daptiv PPM. Daptiv PPM is on-demand collaborative business software that allows organizations to select, staff, and manage projects across teams, departments, and divisions. This study illustrates the financial impact of deploying Daptiv PPM in a medium-sized, multi-location retail organization. In conducting in-depth interviews with four existing customers, Forrester found that these companies achieved:

� Increased productivity through process standardization and automated reporting.
� An enhanced portfolio management process leading to improved decision-making and increased productivity.
� Cost savings due to reduction in internal IT support requirements.
� Savings through software license fees, server, and maintenance cost avoidance.
� Improved scalability for portfolio and project management initiatives.
� Increased accountability.
� Improved visibility and business focus through automated and enhanced reporting.
