Catalyst to hold seminars in key US cities outlining key product and management benefits

Asta Development has inked a deal to extend its project management, portfolio and resource management software to a wider US audience via a new partnership with Catalyst, a leading Chicago based project management and consulting firm. The agreement will see Catalyst offering Asta Powerproject to both its existing customer and potential new customers. The company had carried out a detailed review of the best available construction project management software tools on the market, with Asta coming out top for ease of use and strategic project management capabilities.

Catalyst will market, sell, and provide U.S. technical support for Asta’s well-known Powerproject scheduling and resource management software and is conducting free seminars to introduce the software to construction and engineering firms throughout 25 Eastern and Midwestern states.
Asta Powerproject has become the construction industry standard throughout Europe and the rest of the world outside the United States since its initial development in 1988. Both small and large companies including general contractors, subcontractors, civil engineering firms, clients and professional advisors prefer Asta Powerproject, with more than 60,000 schedulers using the software worldwide.

“Listening to customers from the many industries we serve and offering only best-in-breed project scheduling software and services has been critical for Catalyst’s success over the last 18 years.” said Steve Sudler, president of Catalyst “We believe Asta Powerproject is a great choice for our construction industry customers who want additional options to satisfy their project scheduling software needs. Asta Powerproject is powerful software. It’s trusted by thousands of schedulers around the world. We are really excited to be able to offer such a robust option to our AEC customers here in the U.S.”

Paul Bamforth, Managing Director of Asta Development, adds: “We are seeing an increasing demand for Asta Powerpoject in the USA and are very pleased to have Catalyst now on board to help us meet this growing demand. With their excellent understanding of the US project management software market and highly experienced team, they are ideally placed to provide the support our users will require.”
