A single source of truth for your project portfolio...
Orchestra PPM offers innovative tools so project managers and portfolio managers can easily control the entire project portfolio lifecycle. The Orchestra PPM software is built upon the objective of unifying all project stakeholders to foster a common project management culture and naturally drive user adoption.
By integrating the full portfolio lifecycle on a single project management software, you get a real-time report on your project KPIs, increase project efficiency and focus resources on the projects that bring value to the organization.
...and real-time control of key project management processes
Demand management is the process of evaluating all proposals that would impact current and future projects (project demands, ideas, and change requests). Orchestra PPM allows you to take control of this valuable source through coherent and effective demand management, enabling you to:
Collect and centralize demands in a single area
Assess the value and cost of each demand and identify the dependencies
Make decisions with transparency and fluidity
Bridge the gap between expectation and implementation
Once project possibilities are identified, the portfolio manager gets a set of projects that must be qualified, prioritized and validated. He needs to analyze the overall coherence of the organization’s projects so that duplicates are avoided, resources are focused on value-added projects and load is balanced throughout the year.
Formalize strategy by structuring it in portfolio form
Consolidate projects for global strategic analysis
Define and present the organization’s financial and human constraints
Arbitrate various scenarios depending on priority and resources capacity
Orchestra PPM lets you easily manage and control your project planning, from the most basic tasks to the most elaborate one. Just a few clicks will take you to the interactive Gantt chart, a to-do list or a Kanban board. From there, you can use project templates to create a simple plan for collaboration, a detailed list of tasks and milestones, or effectively combine different planning methods (waterfall, agile, stage-gate…)
Identify projects, their characteristics, and their teams
Delegate tasks and get teams involved
Implement hybrid project management methods, with agile and waterfall planning
Monitor the progress of projects and KPIs
Orchestra PPM gives a global and detailed view on project assignments, non-project activities and resource days-off. Resource managers can configure Orchestra to fit their internal process (role or named resources, assignment rules and workflows, timesheets entries and control…).
Anticipate team capacity and availability
Optimize workload and reduce project delays
Analyze time distribution between project and non-project activities
Get a single timesheet for all resources activities
Orchestra PPM’s cost management features give project managers the ability to plan, track, and analyze the financial performance of projects. The module allows for management of budgets on a global scale or in minute detail, accounting for categories like labor, expenses, materials and equipment.
Anticipate and break down budget needs to get reliable buckets
Get a centralized view on project costs (planned, actual, payments…)
Ensure the reliability of forecasts and budgetary outcomes
Collaboration & Reporting
Decision-makers can no longer be satisfied with just “seeing” what’s going on. They need to anticipate and act. As a collaborative solution, Orchestra PPM promotes communication and connects all stakeholders involved in project and portfolio management. Decision-makers get real-time control of their portfolio so they can now take decisions based on past findings, real-time monitoring, and forecasting.
