Automated Logic went to the market for a program & portfolio management (PPM) solution because it required a digitized and cloud-based collaboration tool to deploy across the organization. The desired solution it looked for was a platform that assisted in standardizing work processes across all its business units so they could operate more efficiently and, for example, improve the execution transparency of projects at all tiers of the organization.
Once Cora PPM has been implemented, ALC will be able to import the detailed scope of any awarded project and create a dynamic Gantt-style scheduling chart, which will set all projects across the United States off on a level footing. It will provide a convenient way to access documentation and standard templates for every project. ALC’s business executives will be able to delve instantly into the detail of each portfolio of work on major projects, delivering significant time savings and making them more competitive.
Mark Ruettiger, North America Operations Manager for Automated Logic, said: “We chose to work with Cora Systems because it’s proven to be one of the more innovative software companies in the industry and it has an extremely customizable PPM solution, which is what we needed – a solution that would fit to the way our business processes operate. Everything from being able to do our monthly forecasting to our cost reviews are all very detailed and specific. We’ve had a good, collaborative working relationship to date. It’s been a positive experience.”
Philip Martin, CEO, Cora Systems said: “The days of old-fashioned portfolio project management are over. You can no longer manage your portfolio of projects using Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoint reports and emails and expect your organization to be a competitive leader. These days, you need a powerful integrated enterprise solution that is configurable, intuitive and easy for the entire team to use. More and more of our USA clients are deciding that Cora PPM is that solution and our local team stands ready to support them as we are for Automated Logic.”
