Improve visibility and control over the entire project portfolio
IT should be a major asset not only in the quest for more efficient project delivery but also for more effective project and programme management. However, experience shows that isn’t always the case. Too often, project portfolio management is based on IT systems that have been deployed on an ad hoc basis over time to meet specific business requirements. The inevitable result is a multi-vendor environment and siloed systems that simply can’t talk to each other, let alone provide a clear view of project status, resource allocation and costs.
Bring efficiency and effectiveness to your PMO
These specific challenges are indicative of a bigger problem. Without information, the PMO is unable to perform effectively and inefficiency creeps in. The business goals of standardising project delivery, gaining clearer oversight and ultimately driving project success all falter. In the face of these challenges, many IT teams understandably question whether adding yet another solution to the environment can really help. But with KeyedIn Projects, it really can.
Avoid the Complexity of Over-Engineered Solutions
Firstly, KeyedIn Projects is a Cloud-based solution – so many of the management headaches are avoided at source.
Secondly, and crucially, it is designed to provide a true portfolio view as well as in-depth visibility of every project. Senior executives and team leaders can easily see real-time project status, resourcing requirements and cost risks – per project and across the portfolio. In other words, instead of requiring integration effort to gather project data from different systems to inform decision-making, KeyedIn Projects does this for you.
Thirdly, because KeyedIn Projects is easy to use, and talks the language of project managers, it makes it simple for them to report on all aspects of project delivery quickly and accurately – without requiring further involvement from IT.
