We are proud to announce that we have reached a reseller agreement with Aberdeen-based specialist information systems company Collabro.
Janice Grant-Shaw, managing director at Collabro, said: “Collabro is a fast moving and innovative business whose links with resellers across the UK and overseas are vital in the development and expansion of the company. We are delighted to have Milestone on-board as part of our growing reseller network. One of our objectives is to approach new markets, including energy, defence, construction, utilities, and pharmaceutical, as well as expanding our existing presence in oil and gas. In attracting focused resellers like Milestone we will have an opportunity to do that. They have a great reputation within the Oracle Primavera community and we look forward to working with them in the future.”
Mario Sanvitale, managing director of Milestone, added: “It is clear that Legare is a product that satisfies a number of requirements which our customers have identified and which have not been addressed to date. Legare is a logical addition to our project lifecycle toolset and has already attracted a lot of interest from our existing and prospective customers. We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with Collabro.”

Since Oracle’s acquisition of Primavera there have been many changes that increase the range of functionality offered. Steve Cotterell, technical editor, examines the result.
Milestone is Oracle’s only UK Platinum Partner specialising in Primavera and handling application configuration, consultancy, sales & marketing and training.
The current version of Primavera 6 is release 8.2 and its full title rolls off the tongue as Oracle Primavera 6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management - or P6EPPM for short! This can be a completely Web-based tool and shouldn’t be confused with P6PPM which is the client/server system.
As well as offering the mainstream Primavera products, Milestone can configure and install an ‘Accelerated Product’, a preconfigured version of P6EPPM for small and medium-sized construction companies that they deliver as a packaged offering.
For those organisations unable or unwilling to host their own Primavera software, Milestone also has a solution, known as ‘Rapid Start’. This combines the ‘cloud’ system offered by LoadSpring, an American organisation that hosts software for their clients, and delivers P6EPPM as a hosted solution. Milestone tells me that they have ‘many hundreds’ of users of this joint package, and that ‘more are joining regularly’.
