DUBLIN, IRELAND — (Oct 17, 2017): Cora Systems, a leading provider of enterprise project and portfolio management solutions, announces today that it has been shortlisted for the “SME Project of the Year” award for the 2017 National Project Awards. It has been nominated for its work in powering the Health Service Executive’s Health Service Improvement Project.
This is the inaugural year of the awards, which will be held on the eve of International Project Management Day 2017. They promote the vital role of project managers in the uncertain times ahead and the best practice being developed to overcome obstacles that threaten project success within the growing profession.
The award winners – which include six categories and one honorary nomination, the Distinguished Contribution to Project Management – will be announced at a gala black tie event at Spencer Dock, PwC’s Ireland headquarters. PwC are hosting the ceremony as principal sponsor. Cora Systems has been shortlisted with three other companies in its category: Exigent Networks, Sonalake and Treemetrics.
The Healthcare Service Improvement Programme is the largest change management project in the Irish state’s history, encompassing 18 programmes of work, which ensures the HSE gives people the right level of access to very high quality health and care services – when and where it’s needed.
“The new Cora system is ‘a single version of the truth’ for all of our programmes. That’s something that we never had before,” said Joe Ryan, Head of Programme for Health Service Improvement, HSE.
“It’s a great honor to be shortlisted by our peers in the industry. We’ve been providing solutions to the project and portfolio management sector, across a range of verticals, since 1999. It’s always a good feeling to get recognition for the interesting work you do. We’re looking forward to the awards night,” said Philip Martin, CEO, Cora Systems.
“We are delighted to announce the shortlist of finalists for the inaugural National Project Awards. The calibre of entries was excellent and reinforces what extraordinary talent exists across all sectors,” said Niall Murphy, President, Project Management Institute.
