Earned Value Management

Get rid of any deviation thanks to the EVM metrics integrated into all our products

A clear-eyed, objective view

One of the reasons gaps appear between planned and actual costs is that, all too often, people are working from different data sets.

What EVM does is to ensure that all data sets are based on the same, agreed-upon criteria.

So everyone has a much clearer and more accurate understanding of exactly where everyone is.

No more cost overruns

One of the perennial problems all businesses are faced with are projects where costs have spiralled out of control. So in the late 1960s, the U.S. government’s Department of Defense came up with a mechanism to solve this; EVM.

By keeping a continual eye on how much you were supposed to be spending, at this stage and on that project, and comparing it with how much has actually been spent, you can rein in those gaps. Which will reduce costs and increase revenue.
