Sciforma Introduces New Portfolio Management Dashboard at PMO Symposium 2016

Portfolio Status Overview (PSO) gives portfolio managers a single point of entry for faster project tracking and rapid understanding of details and issues.

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - November 07, 2016) - (PMO Symposium) - Sciforma, a leading provider of easy-to-use Enterprise Portfolio and Project Management (PPM) software for large and mid-size companies, announces a new portfolio management dashboard for its popular PPM software. The dashboard, called Portfolio Status Overview (PSO), gives portfolio managers and project management offices (PMO) an overview and a single point of entry for quickly assessing details, trends and issues for all ongoing projects. It is entirely configurable to respect the unique business processes of Sciforma's broad array of clients, and features an interface designed for intuitive use. PSO will be unveiled at the PMO Symposium (San Diego, November 6-9).

PSO helps portfolio managers reduce risks, optimize resources and investment, and ensure projects are delivered on time, within budget and in scope. It enables users to quickly check the status of all ongoing projects, spot any issues, and drill down through the details to identify the root causes. Analysis of the history and trends provides rapid insight into anything that is going wrong, when and why.

"Recognizing that our users face new challenges and greater expectations, we worked closely with key customers to better understand how portfolio managers, project managers and PMOs use Sciforma PPM solutions. Integrating their input in the design process, we created PSO, a new, redesigned experience for our portfolio management users," notes Fabien Herelle, Sciforma vice president of Solutions.

Sciforma PSO features include:

  • Global View: an overview of all the Projects and Products of the selected Portfolio.
  • Detailed View: to delve into the specifics of the Projects and Products of the selected Portfolio.
  • History popup: for keeping track of previous Status Reports created by the Project/Product Managers.
  • Time section: summarizes the status of the phases of the project and their progress, with emphasis on any late tasks.
  • Budget section: compares the Cost with the Budget and presents the financial indicators.
  • Contributors section: lists the resources working on the Project and displays the participation by Organization.
  • Phases / Gates section: lists all the Phases and Gates of the Product with their Workflow State, Cost Center, Progress and dates.
  • Deliverables section: gathers all Product Deliverables by Phase with progress and comments.
  • Rating section: displays the rating and score of the product.

Like all the other parts of the Sciforma PPM platform, the PSO is versatile and scalable. Solutions can be used at a functional and execution level to increase project productivity as well as at a strategic level to increase business visibility and profitability.
