Introduction

With so many tools to choose from it can be difficult to find the platform that will match all your needs and that’s within your organisation’s budget. To combat this problem an organisation needs to first decide what they want within a Project Management Software platform.

You may ask yourself the following questions:

  • Will I need a visual display of my project plan?
  • Can I assign and allocate resources to my projects to ensure the right resources are against the right projects?
  • Is there a way I can identify and manage risks?
  • Can I manage all project documents?

By assessing your needs against the options that are available, will ensure that you get the perfect tool for your organization. Within the Cora Portfolio and Project Management software solution, there are a number of key features that our customers find are essential when it comes to assessing their options. Some of these include:

1. Gantt Chart

Through its browser-based charts, the Cora solution allows organizations to set up projects quickly and easily. Its design and interface ensure that the project manager and project team can get up to speed on individual projects or a collection of projects at the same time in minutes. Controlling and managing projects is simple through its drag-and-drop capability and in-line editing.

2. Resourcing

Ensure that you have the right resources assigned to the right projects through Cora’s resourcing capability. Also manage details such as cost, availability against these resources for better budgeting of your projects.

3. Performance Management

Be reassured that you are performing to your optimal level through Cora’s performance management features. Features include KPI Monitoring & Tracking and Balance Scorecards. This will ultimately allow you to quickly and easily identify any issues and put a plan in place to deal with them.

4. Reporting

Cora offers all users a comprehensive suite of reports. Through these reporting tools, you can get all the information you need when you need it with just a few clicks of a button.

5. GIS capability

Visualize your projects by plotting them on a map using our GIS Mapping tools. This is an extremely powerful feature especially when you have multiple projects around the world.
