CHARISMATEK Software Metrics announces the release of the Function Point WORKBENCH Release 7.0
An Australian company with an international reputation in Function Point Analysis, and software project cost modelling continues to thrive in Melbourne, Australia.
CHARISMATEK Software Metrics provides specialist estimating, cost modelling, comparative performance analysis and benchmarking services to Australian clients and selected overseas organisations for software delivery projects.
This expertise is encapsulated and supported by the software sizing, analysis and reporting tool that is the Function Point WORKBENCH™. The latest release of its industry leading function point sizing, analysis and reporting tool – the Function Point WORKBENCH Release 7.0 – once again offers a thought provoking array of capabilities.
The WORKBENCH facilitates the creation and application of a delivery-based model of the software, utilising the Function Point Analysis assessment technique. The software models and reporting capabilities within the WORKBENCH provide a real opportunity for practical, meaningful and effective dialogue between all project stakeholders and enable clients to directly address the real issues leading to blown software budgets and abandoned projects.
The WORKBENCH Release 7.0 offers a host of new, easy to use features to expand the existing capability. These include, for example, specialist project and portfolio sizing functions that are smart enough to work from what you already know to quickly determine an "order of magnitude" size of an existing system flagged for replacement or asset valuation. Productivity and benchmark reporting is enabled by integration with SMR (from Q/P Management Group). New reports provide even more views of your project. And, of course, there are yet more ways to count function points "smarter and faster".
Existing clients with maintenance are eligible for free upgrades to the Function Point WORKBENCH Release 7.0. If you are an existing client and you haven't already received information about this new release, you should contact CHARISMATEK on +61(0)3 9696 1255 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
