PPM tools to manage your resources effectively
Proactively allocate resources and improve execution across your entire project portfolio. Real-time visibility lets you apply resources appropriately, analyze the current utilization of resources, and revise utilization based on what is most productive for your organization. If you donâ€™t know what people are working on, you canâ€™t be sure the right work is getting done. Planviewâ€™s IT Project Portfolio Management software provides resource management tools that enable you to focus on the initiatives that deliver the most business value.
- Demand planning: Quantify your true resource requirements for planned projects
- Capacity planning: Realistic understanding of what you can accomplish with the resources you have
- What-if scenario planning: Forward-looking resource scenario planning for optimizing resources by portfolio, project, role, or individual
- Time tracking: Promote accountability and improve organizational performance by knowing who is working on what and enable teams to work more efficiently by giving them visibility into where they spend their time
- Planview PPM Pro Team Member Plus: Promote PPM adoption by providing your team members with a collaborative work management solution to execute their project work and collaborate with others
Accurately track project financials and budgets
Time is money, and how you manage time for your staff and resources has a major impact on the financial performance of your initiatives that maximize ROI. Without visibility into the time and expenses associated with your work, you might miss opportunities to charge back for billable services or worse, run over budget.
- Financial tracking: Monitor time, budgets, and expenses for both billable and non-billable activities
- Financial reporting: Report on estimates versus actuals and stay on track with key performance metrics
- Integrate Planviewâ€™s PPM software with existing financial systems, and connect the required data such as labor costs for specific roles and individual resources to projects and portfolios

Visibility is power. Planview PPM Pro provides highly configurable dashboards and out-of-the-box reports so you and your stakeholders can view key performance indicators – empowering you to make better decisions. Create dashboards and reports by department, role or even individual, providing relevant information in real-time, then easily drill to get the details that you need.
