Demand Management & Portfolio Prioritization

Give your portfolio manager a centralized view of all project requests that must be qualified and prioritized. You will achieve a balanced portfolio without redundant work and with resources focused on value-added projects throughout the year.

  • Collect and centralize project requests in a single view
  • Flag and be alerted to finance and resource limitations
  • Assess scenarios depending on strategic scoring and resource capacity
  • Ensure the connection between business objectives and successful project execution

 

Project Execution

Combine proven effective planning methods, such as Agile, Waterfall and Stage-Gate, depending on your requirements in the project life cycle. Standardize project with templates, and get your project teams working together with a clear list of tasks. Finally, track your progress with clear milestones and deliverables. 

  • Identify projects, their requirements, and their teams
  • Delegate tasks and get project teams involved
  • Implement hybrid project management with agile and waterfall planning
  • Monitor the progress of projects and KPIs

Cost Management

Provide project managers with the ability to plan, track, and analyze the financial performance of projects in real-time. This allows you to manage high level budgets, right down to detailed accounting on items such as FTEs, man days, expenses, materials and equipment.

  • Anticipate and breakdown budget needs to get reliable buckets
  • Get a centralized view of project costs (planned, actuals, payments…)
  • Ensure the reliability of forecasts and budgetary outcomes

 

Collaboration & Reporting

Decision-makers can no longer be satisfied with a high-level summary of what’s going on. They also need to be able to anticipate outcomes and act when necessary. Give them real-time control over their portfolio, and they can make decisions based on past findings, real-time monitoring, and forecasting.

  • Be confident in the accuracy and reliability of project data, by formalizing and speeding up project reporting
