THOUSAND OAKS, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 9, 2015) - Integrated Management Concepts (IMC), the premier cloud-based provider of Earned Value software and services, and KM Systems Group (KMSG) a premier strategy and technology consulting firm, today announced a strategic partnership that will advance the evolution of Earned Value Management (EVM) and ANSI-748 compliance for businesses working with the U.S. government.

"KMSG's earned value consulting expertise and IMC's CloudEVM solution create a one-stop shop for the EVM community," said Mark Tillema, President and CEO of Integrated Management Concepts. "This partnership provides hundreds of companies struggling to meet the federal government's ANSI-748 compliance requirements with a streamlined, intuitive solution that simplifies compliance, while providing in-depth analytics that serve as accurate and reliable predictors of project success."

CloudEVM perfected a simple way to implement Earned Value by creating a management software that measures project performance and determines the value of work accomplished. The browser-based software can be used from any device and seamlessly integrates with existing accounting and project management software.

"Government contractors have several hurdles to overcome when they are complying with a government EVM requirement," said Dave Scott, Vice President at KMSG. "Traditional 'in-house' EVM software solutions require a large 'up-front' capital expenditure, are difficult, and time consuming to implement; they require specialized resources to maintain and process the system; and they may not be considered relevant to how the organization delivers value to their customers. Integrated Management Concepts and KMSG offer a unique solution which overcomes these hurdles."
