Upland Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: UPLD), a leader in cloud-based enterprise work management software, today announced an innovative integration between Upland PowerSteering, its flagship Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) solution within its Project and Financial Management solution suite, and Microsoft Teams, the unified communications platform used by more than 500,000 organizations.
Project success and goals are often highly dependent upon communication, especially when such efforts involve global project teams. Leveraging Microsoft Teams and Upland’s innovative integration, project team members can now collaborate, communicate, share documents, and schedule meetings directly from within their PPM solution, through a collaboration platform that is used by used by 91 of the Fortune 100 companies.
According to The Project Management Institute, $75 million out of every $1 billion spent on projects is at risk due to ineffective communications, which also is the cause of one out of five project failures. The integration of Upland PowerSteering with Microsoft Teams helps reduce the risk of ineffective project communications and empowers business productivity.

Now, project teams can collaborate in real time to improve productivity and help ensure project success.”
“I was excited to see the integration of Upland’s PowerSteering with Microsoft Teams,” said Gautam Khattak, chief information officer at Artesyn Embedded Technologies. “The interface looked seamless, and I think having this integrated collaboration platform will make PowerSteering an even more encompassing solution.”
