Episode 26: What to look for in project management software

In this podcast Derry explains the three things to look for when it comes to project management software. Firstly, Configuration capabilities are very important due to constantly changing environments. The core strength of Cora’s ProjectVision is that it’s highly configurable. It can be wrapped around existing processes meaning a reduction in lead time for people to get up to speed on what the product does. It becomes embedded within the ecosystem of the business very quickly and matches the existing behavioral elements.

Another key attribute of project management software is Change Management. It is vital that people within the organization are educated about the changes and how to use the project management software. Derry tells us that Cora sees itself as a trusted partner for its customers, not only do Cora build the system but they support the system from their offices in Ireland, UK and US.

The third thing to look for in project management software is – where is the system hosted? Is it hosted on the Cloud or on a physical server? ProjectVision’s adaptability means that it will work on both.
