Cherwell Project & Portfolio Management provides the visibility and control the project managers need to improve project outcomes. It helps you make better decisions about which projects to execute and gain improved visibility into resource utilisation and project status.
Demand Management – Prioritise all of your project requests based on real data to ensure you execute the right projects at the right time.
Portfolio Management – Align all of your projects with key strategic corporate objectives.
Project Management – Provide instant visibility and status across all of your projects.
With streamlined demand management, the PMO can prioritise every idea and project request across the organisation to execute the right projects at the right time. Cherwell PPM makes it easy to evaluate benefits, costs and risks with a scoring matrix, or balanced scorecard, and use dashboards to manage demands in all stages and compare and prioritise project requests.
Portfolio management allows you to quickly visualise the health and status of any portfolio of projects and instantly see how well your organisation is doing against its strategic objectives. As new project demands arise, you can easily analyse the possible benefits, costs, and risks of converting demands into approved projects, so you’re continuously optimising the portfolio for your organisation.
Project management from Cherwell PPM enables project leaders to see the status of all their projects at a glance, then rapidly drill down into each project’s details. The system automatically rolls up effort, costs, schedule, and risk information so you can easily evaluate and communicate status through health indicators, and presents the most pressing items and actions in prominent widgets. You can create, manage, import, and refresh your work breakdown structures within Cherwell PPM or within MS Project – whichever your team prefers.
Resource management ensures optimal allocation and utilisation of project workers for more successful project planning and execution. Cherwell PPM helps you evaluate the commitments of organisational roles or specific individuals to make sure there is adequate capacity to complete the work during the project timeline.
