Government project management FAQs
Why use government project management software?

Like all sectors, government and the public sector are faced with the perennial problem of a skilled labor shortage . Our PPM software has strategic workforce planning functionality built into it. So you can allocate your workers much more efficiently, and align them to your strategic objectives far more effectively.

What are the benefits of government project management software?

One of the main reasons for cost overruns on government projects is that everyone works using their own system, and using their own data sets. By centralizing all your data, and streamlining all your processes, you make sure that everyone is working off the same facts and figures. And that all that data is kept permanently up to date.

What are some of the key features of government project management software?

One of the most useful features that our software solution provides you with are the earned value management (EVM) metrics that are embedded into all our products. So you can track and monitor your planed costs and schedule, against your actual costs and delivery.

Another of our key features is that Cora is famously easy to use. That’s because we’ve designed and built our products to be no/low code solutions. Which guarantees enthusiastic buy-in across your entire organization.

Can the software be integrated with other products?

For many of our customers, this is our most important feature. Crucially, Cora can be seamlessly integrated with any of your existing processes or software platforms. So whatever systems you employ will be coordinated and organized through the one, central hub. In effect, we make you the control tower, enabling you to precisely orchestrate all your activities.
