Are you facing these challenges experienced by other research and development leaders?

Planview has helped other R&D leaders overcome these obstacles and drive business growth. We can help you too.

Are you struggling with identifying the highest-value products in your R&D portfolio or lacking the information you need to confidently prioritize strategic initiatives and manage risks?

If you said yes, you are not alone. According to a study by Gartner, only 23% of leaders are satisfied with their portfolio prioritization process. Before implementing Planview, many of our customers did not have a consistent process for scoring and analyzing products in their portfolio and were unable to prioritize their product mix across strategic initiatives. With Planview, they increase R&D productivity by scoring competing investments with objective, repeatable criteria based on quantitative factors such as ROI and qualitative factors such as strategic fit, impact, and risk.

Planview enables you to bring together detailed progress, delivery, and financial data from the portfolio down to the product level in configurable & exportable reports.

Is it difficult to rapidly collaborate across your product portfolio management ecosystem and the rest of your organization today?

Delayed development, inconsistent product launches, and low productivity are some of the most common concerns we hear from research and development leaders, making it difficult to spot product lifecycle blind spots or remediate risk. Before implementing Planview, many of our customers found it challenging to manage handoffs between development teams due to siloed tools and information, making cross-functional collaboration and concurrent development nearly impossible. With the adoption of Planview, organizations gain end-to-end visibility across all in-flight products and resources in one source. This empowers them to efficiently collaborate cross-functionally and seamlessly share information and drive updates across teams.

Planview enables you to make informed decisions about products and projects based on timelines and dependencies between development teams, improving work handoffs and meeting product launch windows.

Learn how, against a backdrop of new competitors, an explosion of nontraditional retail outlets, and significant technological advancements in the consumer packaged foods industry, Planview helped Conagra connect and engage its workforce across the entire global enterprise, gain real-time visibility throughout the commercialization process, prioritize work, focus resources, and improve efficiency to deliver greater business impact in one highly adaptable, intuitive system.

Are you lacking the visibility you need to reduce new product development cycle time and ensure on-time product delivery?

One of the most common concerns we hear from R&D leaders is that they have limited visibility into product development performance. Before implementing Planview, many of our customers were unable to capture or analyze data in real-time in order to measure product development progress and revenue impact. After implementing Planview, they have a single source of truth and cross-departmental understanding of development progress, resource skillsets, and dependencies. With Planview, R&D portfolio data is captured and analyzed in real-time, and the value of product innovations is quantifiable.

Planview delivers end-to-end holistic visibility, supporting cross-functional new product development, effective product tracking, and informed decision-making with real-time data.
