Project, Program and Portfolio Management
Any project implementation involves simultaneous management of budget, resource deployment, schedule and often, process-conformance challenges besides resource mobilization, project objectives alignment and issue handling.
Most often, the conformance to a well-designed implementation process is compromised for want of visibility and in the interest of "meeting deadlines". Process conformance helps in building an enduring fitment of the package software to the client needs and thus, overall better account management.
Tracking schedules, budgets, time-sheets and effort, resource deployment (including skill mapping and onsite / offshore combination), risk management and process-conformance have to be performed simultaneously and can be best done through a project management tool. Such a tool should also provide for 'aggregation' of implementation parameters by geography, type of client, type of packaged software (if there are more than one for the business) and also maintain a skill-inventory for quick deployment and for ramping up of new joinees on the desired skills.
PMO@PAR is one such tool that provides an easy to use, web-based integrated platform with minimum data entry and ensures a tight coupling of the above "narratives" of an implementation. What's more, it allows for 'customization' of the process for a particular client but maintains the tracking on the customized process and thus ensures compliance to whatever process that was finalized with the client.
More than Protected content possible in the system and can be configured based on role - resource Gantts, Task Gantts, Milestone, Alerts, etc. PMO@par allows reports that you need to be generated on your portal – “pushed” to you as opposed to you going out seeking information.
Reduce slippages. 80% of projects slip by >= 20% on scope-cost-schedule (some close to 200%).
Increase productivity because of templates, integrated views, aggregations.
Predict - Early visibility – delivery / revenue forecasts, risks, slipping tasks.
PMO@PAR empowers you and your employees!
