New Bubble Chart Pro PLUS Release Makes Project Prioritization Easier (October 17, 2012)

New Castle, Delaware - Bubble Chart Pro PLUS is a desktop application that solves the difficult problem managers face when trying to prioritize projects for investment and resource allocation purposes. The latest version 4 adds users' three most requested new features.

Bubble Chart Pro PLUS uses a powerful project prioritization system that lets managers integrate multiple competing criteria into a single value score for each project. The value score is calculated based on the managers strategic business goals. The prioritization system was developed based on decision research by scientists from Harvard, MIT, and the University of Southern California.

Bubble Chart Pro PLUS combines this project prioritization system with interactive bubble charts and bar charts so that the manger can see their projects in multiple dimensions, such as value, cost, and risk. By using bubble charts, managers can quickly compare and understand which investments are the most attractive and which are the least attractive. By using bar charts, managers can understand the contribution of each criteria to the total value score of each project.

Bubble Chart Pro PLUS version 4 adds our most requested features including letting users add their own custom graphics to chart backgrounds, automatically overlaying project names on bubbles, and animating selected bubbles to "blink" on-and-off. These three new features make portfolio analyses using bubble charts easier and faster then before.

Bubble Chart Pro PLUS can be used to prioritize many different types of potential business investments, including R&D projects, marketing strategies, and new product development (NPD) proposals.

This release of Bubble Chart Pro PLUS version 4 brings a powerful project portfolio management tool to business managers and consultants for less than $200.
