In preparation for launching the new Optsee® 5 product line of project portfolio management software applications, we are discontinuing sales of Bubble Chart Pro PLUS and Bubble Chart Pro OPTIMAL licenses. These two products will be replaced in our product line with Optsee® Basic and Optsee® Plus, respectively.

Optsee® Basic and Optsee® Plus have all the features of the applications that they are replacing and much more. Current users of Bubble Chart Pro PLUS and Bubble Chart Pro OPTIMAL will be able to open and use their current datafiles in all of the new Optsee® 5 applications.

We will be announcing the upgrade path for current Bubble Chart Pro PLUS and OPTIMAL users in the next several weeks. In the meantime, the Optsee® applications are currently in a public beta test, and you can try them today. Click here to go to Optsee.com and choose the application you’d like to try.

You will be able to open and use your old Bubble Chart Pro OPTIMAL Version 6 ONLYfiles in any of the new Optsee® 5 applications, but not the reverse, so it is essential that you make a back-up or copy of your datafile before you open it in Optsee®. The Optsee® product line has the same familiar user interface as the Bubble Chart Pro products.

In addition to Optsee® Basic and Optsee® Plus, we are launching Optsee® Pro, an extremely powerful tool for maximizing project portfolio value while managing risk. Optsee® Pro has a rich feature set of business analytical functions built into it including:

  • A powerful genetic optimizer for optimizing large portfolios.
  • The capability of optimizing against project dependencies and force-in and force-out projects from optimization results
  • Easy to use efficient frontier charts that show you multiple maximum benefit-to-cost frontiers that you can compare with your portfolios models.
  • Baseline tracking of individual projects and portfolios with change alerts when projects start to go off-track.
  • The capability of performing predictive simulations on your portfolios using Monte Carlo simulations to better understand project and portfolio risk.

We will continue to develop and sell licenses for Bubble Chart Pro BASIC.

Finally, we will continue to offer support as needed for our current Bubble Chart Pro PLUS and Bubble Chart Pro OPTIMAL license holders.
