For many IT leaders, effectively managing the combination of short-duration help desk requests in an IT Service Management (ITSM) system and longer-term strategic projects in Project Portfolio Management (PPM) software can be a disjointed process that creates challenging visibility gaps. Understanding exactly how much effort is being expended on certain initiatives and just how utilized key resources actually are can become a time-consuming, manual effort with little precision.
- Integrating KeyedIn Projects with ITSM software like Cherwell eliminates those blind spots
- This integration allows users to seamlessly orchestrate service requests into their portfolio of projects managed in KeyedIn
- KeyedIn Projects remains the key system to report all project-related and non-project-based work for capture, approval, and management
- How it works - Integration between KeyedIn Projects and Cherwell is achieved through connectors, process alignment and data mapping.

The union of KeyedIn Projects and a CRM system like Salesforce eliminates the guesswork by bringing key sales data into the project portfolio management (PPM) system as it happens.Learn More
