Define and align your company long term strategy

Planisware’s strategic roadmaps enables you to visualize all innovation efforts across the company and communicate strategic decisions to your development teams. Give Marketing, Supply Chain and Production departments the power to define their own individual roadmaps, which can then be integrated in the company’s global strategy. Use financial forecast tools to define and allocate budget to products and business units, then use pyramidal analytics to see how resources and costs measure against the strategic orientation.

Choose the right projects

To make the best investment choices, decision makers must have the right information to accurately measure risks and opportunities. Planisware enables you to compare risks and benefits through qualitative scorecards and quantitative indicators, in order to better analyse opportunities against BCG matrices, key performance indicators and other comparative reports. Investment scenario features help you find the right combination of innovation and existing projects to increase the return on investment under specific resource and budget constraints.

Boost efficiency

Reducing the time-to-market requires accurate and updated information. Planisware’s transparent system provides a single source of information for the entire organization, avoiding communication errors, and time-consuming and unnecessary data gathering. Using standardized Stage-Gate Ready© processes reinforces data consistency and reliability of performance indicators. Real-time capacity planning and cost management capabilities reduce the risk of product delays and resource conflicts. Costly mistakes can be reduced through accurate and timely identification of problems and risks, thus enabling you to take the right go/no go decisions.
