Effective work methods spread via web service Projectplace

London, March 4, 2002 - Projectplace Ltd, the leading Internet Business
Service Provider for project collaboration in Europe, today announced a
unique addition to the service, which enables project work to be simpler and
more efficient. The new 'Project Templates' feature will enable
Projectplace customers to create their own customised templates. These can
then easily be distributed on to for example colleagues, customers and
partners for reuse - saving them time, effort and money and establishing a
common project model. This new addition to the service will make it quicker
than ever before to establish a highly operational working methodology
within an organisation and will be demonstrated for the first time at the
ProjectWorld exhibition.

Project templates can consist of folders, documents and files, document
archive structures, pre-defined document templates, milestones, tasks,
subtasks and contact lists. There is also an option to include member
groups in templates. By having member groups in a template, and giving
these groups different permissions to folders in the document archive, you
can effectively support the various standardised roles already established
within the project set-up.

"The new addition to the service is an innovative way of providing our
customers with a method of developing a standard set of processes within a
template which will help them to carry out certain tasks. The team can then
pass the template on to others to use with the help of our web service,"
explained Mattias Hällström, CEO and Co-founder of Projectplace. "We are
the first to offer this type of functionality and hope that it will make
things easier for both individual project leaders and project members, but
not least for companies and organisations who want to co-ordinate their
projects or spread their own project methodology more efficiently."

Dak Liyanearachchi, managing director of Projectplace Ltd adds: "This new
facility will save users from 'reinventing the wheel' each time they want to
start another process, cutting down on start-up time and therefore project
implementation. We received a lot of requests from our customer base for
templates so that they could then offer it to their customers - we saw it as
an opportunity to service our clients requirements and to enhance our
